Returning artists to the Eurovision Song Contest

In 2018, we will also see a couple of artists taking the stage of the Eurovision Song Contest again. However, this is not unique. The last time we had 0 returning artists in the contest was back in 2004.

Our own Jessica Mauboy already ‘represented’ Australia in 2014, because she took care of the interval act. Waylon was a part of The Common Linnets in that same year, and he then reached the silver medal on behalf of The Netherlands.

Before taking part as a solo-artist, Austria’s Cesár Sampson was already a backing vocalist and dancer for Bulgaria in 2016, and off-stage vocalist in 2017. SuRie (UK) was a backing vocalist and dancer for Belgium in 2015, and off-stage vocalist in 2017. Lea Sirk was a backing vocalist for Slovenia in 2014, and off-stage vocalist in 2016.

Some artists are successful when they return to the contest, while others fail on their second (or third) attempt. Whether it is a wise choice or not, depends on the situation. We wrote about this topic in our Do’s and don’ts article for comeback-artists.

A lot of internal selections for Lisbon

The trend of recent years will continue in 2018. Many public broadcasters have decided to make an internal selection for the Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon, although we see more national finals than in the 2017 season. Seven countries (Australia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Belgium, Finland, Georgia and The Netherlands) already handpicked their artist in the last months of 2017!
