Bilal Hassani releases two brand new, powerful songs.
France's Bilal Hassani did not sit still in the time building up to the Eurovision Song Contest and came out with two new songs; Fais beleck and Jaloux. Both songs show a different side of the singer.
Fais beleck (pay attention) is a personal song about a previous relationship that came to an end because his partner at the time was ashamed of Bilal’s feminine side.
Jaloux is a song in which Bilal expresses his feelings about the negative reactions he received after winning Destination Eurovision. In the song, Bilal realizes that his haters are simply jealous of his success and that he should pay the haters no mind.
Along with Roi, Bilal's Eurovision song entry, Jaloux and Fais Beleck will also appear on his debut album Kingdom. The album will be released on April 24th.
Sergej remains focused on himself
Russian singer Sergej came in third at the Eurovision Song Contest back in 2016 with his song You Are The Only One. This year he is back with a completely different number and with the experience he already has, he has high expectations to life up to. This year Sergej is going to do things differently, he said. "This time around I'm not going to see who's said to score high in the ratings, I'm not listening to what people have to say about me or my performance. Until the end I will mainly focus on myself and be in my own head because I don't want to care what people say about it, I want to be sure about it myself."
