OGAE FAN STAND – KYIV, UKRAINE

OGAE Finland was very active at the OGAE fan stand in Kyiv during the Eurovision song contest and ESCCovers met up with Petteri Hilska and his sister Karoliina from Finland. They were doing a shift at the fan stand and we rewarded them with some CD’s. We already published a photo of Petteri and now it is the turn of Karoliina. She asked Roy from South Africa about the South African boy band HI 5 as she knew they covered several euro songs in Afrikaans. Karoliina got some of the special CD’s we made for Vienna when Eurovision celebrated 60 years. On these CD’s are a lot of Afrikaans covers of Eurovision songs.

Måns brings the Heroes Tour to London

As the winners tour concluded last night in Copenhagen.  Let’s have a look at some of the great moments that Måns gave us.  Back on the London leg of the tour, just outside London’s West End at the gay venue, Heaven, Måns delivered a very intimate concert to a massive crowd.  Performing most of his new album, Perfectly Damaged, but also some amazing favourites of the past.

He pleased the crowd by performing the Melodifestivalen 2009 finalist classic, Hope & Glory but it was the Mirrors Tung Version, which was a funk rock version of the song that still had an infectious beat.

He then sang the ever popular Cara Mia from Melodifestivalen 2007, which in my eyes still should of won of that year.

And of course no evening would be complete without the 2015 Eurovision winner, Heroes.  Annouced by Conchita and replaying that winning moment back in Vienna.

Overall, it was a night to remember and can’t wait for the next time that Måns stops off in London.  He is welcome back anytime.
