Another country who has taken some time out of Eurovision is in the spotlight today as we take a look at the potential Slovakian performers for 2016. But who did you choose?
Not much of a surprise here, as a popular name for our forum members wins the poll! Celeste Buckingham is your choice for Slovakia and has become famous for her brand of westernised, mainstream pop. Slovakia has in their recent participations tried all kinds of genres to little avail so perhaps it’s time to see what a more general interest artist would accomplish!
Narrowly missing out on the top spot were 2011 participants TWiiNS who many feel were underrated in their previous Eurovision participation. Third place went to Slovakian language electro/triphop group Fallgrapp.
The full suggestions (draws in random order);
Celeste Buckingham, TWiiNS, Fallgrapp, Tublatanka, Jana Kirschner, Peter Bič Project, Peter Lobo, Jimmy Pé, Puding pani Elvisovej, Smola a hrušky, Nela Pociskova, PapaJam, Kamil Mikulchik
The ESC United Dream Team so far;
- Turkey – Gülşen
- Armenia – Lilit Hovhannisyan
- Czech Republic – Lenka Dusilová and Baromantika
- San Marino – Valentina Monetta
- Latvia – MNTHA
- Belarus – Elena Sinyavskaya
- Bosnia & Herzegovina – Dubioza Kolektiv
- Slovakia – Celeste Buckingham
Tomorrow we will be moving on to the first of the big 5 countries – who did you want to represent Italy?
