ESC Covers had plans to report direct from Minsk, Belarus on the 2918 Eurovision song contest where 20 countries will be taking part.
Roy van der Merwe will unfortunately not be in Minsk due to the fact that an invite from the organizers was not issued in time for him to apply for a visa to enter the country despite the fact that he asked for it as far back as July.
We still hope Ian Fowell will be able to attend and report as, he being a citizen of the UK, can enter visa free.
ESC Covers had several plans for promotion, among them a BARBIE DOLL competition in celebration of the Albanian entry and we had someone designed a dress typical of South Africa. Now that Roy is not going to Minsk, this promotion is not happening and he handed the Barbie doll today to some girl in a near by orphan home.
