Promotional tours and events & Eurovision. This year the starts have been socializing more than ever before it seems and when in Copenhagen some of them must know each other already quite well. Maybe. It's always nice to see some group photos of the artists like school kids, Class of '14 indeed. Besides several meetings and face-to-face across Europe there are three main events. Most of all already cemented Eurovision in concert in Amsterdam where 25 of this year's entrants got together. Then followed London Eurovision Party with 12 of them. This Sunday once again six of them are together in Moscow - luckily time is running out or next weekend there would be a lonely threesome somewhere in Europe.... The Russian preview party seems something new to the scene, but when it also headlines some of the county's biggest names as guest stars it is apparently broadcasted on various TV stations and getting huge media coverage. Maybe.
Sammarinese Valentina Monetta becomes the only one doing another triplet (Eurovision 2012-13-14) and being present in all of them, while ten countries decided to skip all these promo events: Estonia, Sweden, Iceland, Hungary, Finland, Ireland, Poland, Slovenia, Germany and Italy. Time will tell if these events have any real impact in the outcome or are they just great fun and fuss for the fans.....
