I was coming to post this. Someone in the government has half a brain and realized that putting all those half-naked singers in the holy city wasn't such a good idea. In Tel Aviv they can walk down the street in costume and people will barely notice.

Tamar Kaprelian (Armenian singer who competed at Eurovision 2015 and in Depi Evratesil, Armenia's national selection, in 2018) just confirmed on Twitter that she has submitted an entry for the UK national selection in 2019!

Srbuk from Armenia was the first artist to be internally selected as a contestant for the 2019 edition --- lots of action now as national final selections are getting underway with final or semi-final lineups starting to be revealed all around -- it's happening! Latvia, Estonia, Hungary, and Switzerland are underway with that --- Estonia (IMHO) is AHEAD OF THE GAME with their entries -- fully HALF the field I think would be worthy of Eurovision, and there's not one entry I outright despise!

More national final fields are known now -- and France's Destination Eurovision gets under way later today!

(Also, total sidebar, but there's a new talent competition -- called "The World's Best" -- set to debut here in the US after the Super Bowl -- very much like America's Got Talent (as in, there's talent from across the globe, in every facet of entertainment), but with a Eurovision-like twist -- three judges judge each entry, but then a 50-member "expert panel" (supposedly made up of "experts" from around the globe) will also weigh in for a combined score --

I'm aware that Daneliya Tuleshova (the young lady from Kazakhstan who finished 2nd in KAZ's debut at Junior Eurovision just a few months ago) is taking part, and I'm on the lookout for other EV personalities!

Traditionally, Albania was the first country to select their entry: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XG4VSyMD8kQ
I know -- I watched it live even here in the US! LOVE Jonida Maliqi's studio cut of "Kotheu Tokes" (I probably just misspelled that), but I thought the live version across the three night MARATHON that was FiK failed to live up to the magic -- I really thought Lidia Lufi's "Rrefehem" (which I probably ALSO just horribly misspelled) was dynamic and strong and better across all the nights, and the vote was close -- but in the end, I'm not surprised Jonida won overall, her song had created such buzz in the run-up before the contest!

Will be interesting to see who gets chosen as more countries make their decisions!

Finland will announce their competitor Jan 29th. There will be vote for the songs s/he/they will perform in Tel Aviv. Some predict Tarja Turunen, the former Nightwish singer.
