As we wrap up 2018, we get ready for Albania’s Eurovision selection process, check in with Spain, and see how Spotify puts us on blast.
First up, the 57th edition of Festivali i Këngës will begin Thursday with three days of competition to determine the first Eurovision entry for 2019! Will the new format of the competition lead to better results for the country in next year’s Contest?
Meanwhile, Spain’s selection process will reveal the 17 songs up for consideration in their selection process. It’s a little convoluted, but perhaps this method will allow the country to move up the scoreboard in Tel Aviv?
Now that you can find the Eurowhat on Spotify, we take a look at our own usage to talk about what music we’ve been listening to in 2018. Yes—we do listen to non-Eurovision music… at least Ben does.
Have a happy holiday, a fantastic new year, and we’ll see you in January!
