Spotify: “Snap” has surpassed Måneskin’s “Zitti e Buoni”, becoming the 2nd most-streamed Eurovision song of all times!

We have already talked about the fascinating story of Rosa Linn’s “Snap”, which despite its mediocre success in ESC, is doing great on the streaming platforms.

As of today, “Snap” is not only the most popular Eurovision 2022 song on Spotify, but has also managed to become the 2nd most streamed Eurovision song, surpassing “Zitti e Buoni” by Måneskin.

“Snap” has managed to muster 358 million streams, a few streams more than the ESC 2021’s winning song, and the former’s run doesn’t seem to be stopping there. The only question that remains, is whether Rosa Linn will be able to break Duncan Laurence’s record and surpass the 849 million streams of “Arcade” and become the most streamed Eurovision song of all time!

Below you can watch the new music video of “Snap”, that was released a few time ago:

Romania: MIHAI is ready for Selectia Nationala 2023!

Mihai Traistariu is no stranger to the Eurovision community, since he represented Romania at Eurovision 2006 and came to fourth place for his country, with the well-known song “Tornero“.

The singer never stopped trying to get back on the competition scene, often taking part in the Romanian national final, but never winning. In fact, he has sent songs to other countries as well, such as San Marino, Azerbaijan and Belarus.

It may be that in recent years the singer has critized several times the  public television for their choices in the song contest, however the changes in Selectia Nationala 2023, were the ones that made him want to try his luck again and be on the Eurovision stage, after 17 years.

Through his personal Facebook account, MIHAI announced his intention to take part in Selectia Nationala 2023, since the representative of the country will be chosen exclusively by the Romanian public. In fact, he invites all interested composers to send him their songs in order to be the representative of Romania at Eurovision 2023.

In his post, MIHAI states:

As you already know, apart from being a Eurovision mega fan, I also set a goal.
So I started to fight for the first place in Romania which is extremely difficult … but never impossible! This year there will be NO JUDGES and that is a good thing. It will be public vote only. I’ve been saying this from the beginning… Indigenous musicians, when invited to the Eurovision jury, have a natural tendency to sabotage certain artists or composers, with criteria known only to them. There were such examples every year. There is also the reverse: there are judges who favor certain competitors… either out of friendship, or personal interests, or… “so that the neighbor’s goat doesn’t win”! And at that time….. I say a big YES to this year’s selection, precisely because there is no jury. Back to it again… If you know any songwriters, younger or more experienced, who might be looking to try their luck at Eurovision… with Mihai Traistariu… I’m waiting for their demo tracks on my email: mihai.traistariu@gmail.com

PS : There’s just one thing I want to make clear from the start!
I listen to all the songs I receive and only then can I decide whether or not it is worth taking part in the contest! I’d like to stop throwing myself on the tram if I’m not feeling the song! Come now with this bomb song! Come on, Romania!

The process of Selectia Nationala 2023

Only 12 songs will compete in one night, where the public will exclusively choose the song they wish to represent in Liverpool, at Eurovision 2023.

The deadline for submission of entries for the Selectia Nationala will start on Monday 14th November and will last until 11th December. Then a committee will choose the 12 best songs. The artists who will compete in the Selectia Nationala will be announced no later than December 17th.

The Selectia Nationala will be held on February 11 and the winner will be determined solely by public votes, via sms, and online voting. Both Romanians and foreign citizens can participate, without any restrictions, both in terms of creators and performers.

Romania was represented this year by WRS with the song Llamame, which placed 18th  in the grand final:

Germany: Ben Dolic declines a new entry in Eurovision!

Ben Dolic, the representative of Germany in Eurovision 2020, posted a statement about Eurovision Song Contest, on his personal Twitter account.

After the cancellation of the 2020 contest, Ben Dolic was one of the few “unlucky” contestants to not be selected, to represent their countries once again in 2021. Since then, many fans want him to return with a new song and finally perform on the Eurovision stage.

His post isn’t that positive on a new participation in the contest, saying that he has now taken a different turn in his career:

This is what Ben Dolic posted:

“Competing in the Eurovision Song Contest was something I had always dreamed of and I am so incredibly grateful for my experience representing Germany in 2020 with ‘Violent Thing’. The ESC community has always been so supportive and although the competition didn’t fully go ahead, I feel that my experience fulfilled my wishes and I look back on my time with fond memories.

Since 2020, I have been establishing my sound and don’t feel that the direction I am moving in is a suitable fit for Eurovision. I want to prioritise myself and my career and I am working on releasing more music as an independent artist. I do not want to completely rule out competing or submitting an entry in the future, as I never know how my sound will change in the long term, but I do want to be respected as an artist in my own right and release music that aligns with my direction.

I am grateful for the Eurofans who have stuck by me since my debut single release and hope I can continue to have their support with future releases, void of rumours or pressure about returning to the competition.”

Ben Dolic was internally selected to represent Germanby in the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 with the song “Violent Thing”:

2023, a busy year for Chanel

If 2022 is a great year for Chanel, so will 2023. The artist has just signed with Sony Music Entertainment to complete her new music project, an album that will be released in early 2023.
