Eurovision 2024: Käärijä and Gunilla Persson among others will perform at Eurovision village!

On Saturday, May 4, what is known as Eurovision Village will open for the first time in Folkets Park in Malmö. After the defections in recent weeks, under pressure due to Israel‘s participation in the competition, the show has started to look sparse on the Eurovision Village stages.

But now the city of Malmö is squeezing in with a long list of new artists with clear Eurovision connections.

MAD VMA 2023: Käärijä, Stefania, Kalomira and 3SUM, will perform Cha Cha Cha in new English version!

We can say that it is the biggest surprise of this year’s MAD VMA, the Greek music awards, that Käärijä, Stefania, Kalomira and the fresh girl band 3SUM, will perform “Cha Cha Cha”, the runner-up song to this year’s contest, in its first ever English version!

Through our previous articles, you may have speculated a possible appearance of Käärijä at the MAD VMA 2023. However, because of his full schedule, the Finnish singer won’t be able to perfrom live, but he will record a special performance in a green box for this different version of his song, which is directed by none other than, Dimitris Kontopoulos.

The song will be performed in Eglish for the first time ever, in an exciting performance!

“Cha Cha Cha” will be performed live by Stefania, Greece’s first top 10 result in eight years in Eurovision 2021, Kalomira, who won third place in Eurovision 2008 and remains Greece’s last top 5 result, as well as 3SUM the new pop girl band, which hopes to stand out as the only completely pop band of the country.

Our team had the chance to listen to this new version of the song and we can undoubtedly say that it will be the highlight of the night. For the needs of the song and so that each artistcan have a part of the song on themselves, the song is now a little longer.

The MAD VMA 2023 will take place on Monday, June 19 and will be broadcasted at a later time by the Greek broadcaster MEGA TV.

Finland: Käärijä rules out a possible Eurovision return!

Käärijä represented Finland in Eurovision 2023 with his big hit “Cha Cha Cha“, winning the public vote and finishing 2nd overall, behind Sweden. A month after Eurovision, “Cha Cha Cha” continues to be really successful in music charts all around Europe.

Käärijä recently gave an interview to the Israeli news site Ynet making some statements regarding his Eurovision participation.

Regarding his song winning the public vote but not winning the contest overall, he stated that:

At first, when I understood the meaning of the results, I wasn’t happy. I hoped to win. I know there were many talented artists and bands who wanted to win, but that’s how it is in a competition, you only want to finish first. Now when I think about it, it doesn’t matter to me that much. When it happened, I was upset, of course. But what happened to Loreen is amazing, she is awesome, she won, and I didn’t.
Regarding a possible Eurovision return, Käärijä says:
I don’t think so, I won’t compete again with a new song. I’m willing to come and perform in the semifinals or something like that, but definitely not as a contestant.
Also, Noa Kirel seems to have bonded with Käärijä and her team is considering of bringing him to Israel as a guest in her planned performance at HaYarkon Park in September. In a possible condition that Käärijä will indeed be invited he states that:
Oh my god, wow. If that happens, then I’ll do it. We have so many shows in Finland, so maybe I won’t have enough time, but I hope so. Maybe one day I can come to perform in Israel, and we can do something crazy together.
Bearing in mind that Käärijä recently hosted as a guest in one of his concerts in Finland the lead singer of the Slovenian band “Joker Out!”, Bojan Cvjetićanin, we might as well see more Eurovision 2023 artists collaboration in the future.

Loreen: “It didn’t bother me that the audience was singing Cha Cha Cha”!

Loreen gave her first interview on Swedish TV after being the winner of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest and talked about the moment when during her victory the croud on the arena was singing “Cha Cha Cha”.

More specifically, Loreen said that:

“I mean Käärijä is so (f-word) awesome! An amazing performance. And it’s nice, when acts get such support. You can’t just go “Shush shush, you can only think I’m good“, that’s not how it works!

No, no. That doesn’t bother me. I have to work a little on my ego.”

Finally, she was also asked what message she would like to send to the Finnish representative and she stated:

To Käärijä I’d like to say that it’s not every day, that you see creators be that authentic on stage, and he has an authentic expression. He is himself. It’s pure all the way through, and that’s why people cheer for him. That happens when you are authentic. So I know things will go well for him. Things will go really damn well for Käärijä!”

During the rehearsals and the pre-parties we have seen several times the two artists coming in contact and chatting, showing the excellent relations they have with each other.
