Image Interview with Aminata (Latvia 2015):   After 20 artists went through two Heats, a Semi Final and a Final the winner of the SUPERNOVA 2015 became Aminata who represented Latvia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 in Vienna, Austria with the song "Love injected" which came 6th in the Eurovision Song Contest 2015. Aminta is also a songwriter and has among others also written "Heartbeat" performed by Justs as the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 in Stockholm last May reaching Number 15. Before Eurovision 2016 Aminata went to the London Preview Event where Radio International's David Mann had the pleasure to chat with her.  Listen to this interview on this week's edition of Radio International.
ImageInterview with Sean Banan (Melodifestivalen 2012 and 2013, Sweden):  After Melodifestivalen 2016 in the Friends Arena near Stockholm there is always an amazing Aftershow Party where the current and previous artists that took part in Melodifestivalen pay a visit and celebrate the music. Also this year there was no exception as Sean Banan appeared at the Aftershow Party. In 2012 Sean Banan took part for the first time in Melodifestivalen with the song "Sean de Foerste Banan" which unfortunately did not make it into the Final in 2012. However, in 2013 Sean Banan's offering "Copacabanana" made it straight to the Final from the Semi Final. He delivered a brilliant show in the Final and with this ended up at Number 6 of Melodifestivalen 2013. Eric and JP chatted with the funny singer and actor during the Aftershow Party of Melodifestivalen 2016. Enjoy this interview in this week's edition of Radio International.  You can also watch this interview on our YouTube Channel - click here  

ImageInterview with Dinah Nah (Melodifestivalen 2015, Number 12):  Like Sean Banan, Dinah Nah was part of the Aftershow Party of Melodifestivalen 2016, although she took part the year previously in 2015 with the song "Make me la la" which came 12th in the Final of Melodifestivalen 2015.

Vladimir is a huge composer and musician in Serbia and is responsible among other hits for the winning song of the Eurovision Song Contest 2007 "Molitva" performed by Marija Serifovic.

ImageEurovision Song Contest Spotlight - Chris Poppe's Favourite National Final Songs Two weeks ago we finished the mini series on Radio International as our Eurovision correspondents took a look at the Eurovision entries from Ukraine since Ukraine will be hosting the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 following  Jamala's victory in Stockholm at the 61st edition of the contest with the song "1944". Ukraine initially won the Eurovision Song Contest in 2004 after their second attempt as Ukraine only joined the Eurovision family back in 2003. The Winning Song of Ukrain's first victory was "Wild Dances" performed by Ruslana when the Eurovision Song Contest 2004 came from Istanbul, Turkey. Just recently, it was decided that the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 will be hosted once again by Ukraine's capital city Kiev on May 09 & 11 for the Semi Final 1 and 2 and the Grand Final to take place on May 13. Last week Ally Rendall played his favourite entries from the Eurovision Song Contest 2005 as Kiev was the host city back then and this week the Eurovision Spotlight does something completely different. As it being the last Eurovision Spotlight of 2016 Chris Poppe of Radio International will be taking a look at some of his personal favourites of the National Finals to the Eurovision Song Contest. In the first editions of Radio International of 2017 we will be starting the National Final Season 2017.
