Amsterdam’s Eurovision in Concert celebrated its Tenth Anniversary big time. Or should we say, in XL Size! More than 2,000 fans and music lovers from all across Europe gathered last night to welcome thirty two of the forty three 2018 Eurovision artists. And they brought the House down!
All the artists brought their A Game but it was actually the Brit who stole the show. And on French territory. SuRie from the UK was a showstopper when she stepped into the shoes of France’s Emilie Satt. Émilie, the Madame of Madame Monsieur, fell ill just before traveling to Amsterdam, and the French duo performance was in jeopardy. But BLESS SuRie. She took the stage with Mr. Monsieur and together performed a beautiful version of their hit, Merci, in English. We were at awe how quickly SuRie learned the English version by heart, and her performance was spotless and effortless . Kudos.
Last night’s show was a good reminder why we love Eurovision, and how it continues to bring us all together, music lovers, friends, and even rivals.
Update: You can now watch a recap of the three hour show right from the Eurovision.tv official YouTube channel.
