The Spanish PreParty, with live gigs of the participating Eurovision countries, which normally takes place in Madrid has been held online instead. Singers from over 30 countries gave a special performance of their Eurovision songs. Some artists had some special surprises for the online audience, like unusual places or funny ideas. Most of the songs were presented in an acoustic version, which made it even more interesting. Sometimes the acoustic versions seem to be better than the original like “Embers” from James Newman (United Kingdom). Great to see the Ukrainian group Go_A singing in the kitchen, Jendrik from Germany having a party with coloured powder and Manihza from Russia singing “Ne verj, ne boisja” from t.A.T.u. and a very cool version of “Russian Woman”.
Furthermore you can watch: Albina from Croatia, Anxhela from Albania, Barbara Pravi from France, Benny Cristo from Czech Republic, Daði from Iceland, Destiny from Malta, Efendi from Azerbaijan, Hooverphonic from Belgium, Lesley Roy from Ireland, Måneskin from Italy, Montaigne from Australia, Natalia Gordienko from Moldova, RAFAŁ from Poland, Roxen from Romania, Samanta Tīna from Latvia, Senhit from San Marino, The Black Mamba from Portugal, THE ROOP from Lithuania, Tusse from Sweden, Uku Suviste from Estonia, Vasil from North Macedonia, VICTORIA from Bulgaria and Vincent Bueno from Austria. Additionally there were several singers from other year’s issues like Miki from Spain (2019), Dami Im from Australia (2016), KEiiNO from Norway (2019), Naviband from Belarus (2017), Sirusho from Armenia (2008), Karina from Spain (1971) and Soléa from Spain (Junior ESC).
The videos have been recorded in advance and presented in order of popularity or winning chances. There were around 10.000 people watching the show on that Saturday night. The show was hosted by the Spanish singer Blas Cantó, Suzy (Portugal 2014) and Victor Escuerdo.

About me: Due to the fact that my parents are musicians, I have a gained a great enthusiasm for music. Since 1979 my interest in the Eurovision Song Contest has grown enormously. My first ESC I joined was in Dublin 1995. Six years later I founded the website eurovisionlive.com in the year 2001. The most fascinating part for me is the original idea of the Eurovision Song Contest – the peaceful contest of the European countries. I am very happy that I have the chance to contribute my little part for the greatest music show in the world.
