Three more entrants in the Eurovision first Semi Final…
The glamorous multi-talented Elena Tsagrinou is one of the most recognisable pop stars across Greece and Cyprus. The Athenian singer was propelled to fame by her success in Greece Got Talent, before joining the band OtherView as their lead singer, releasing their first track What You Want in 2014. After an enjoyable half a decade with the band, Elena began her solo career by releasing a single with the pertinent title Pame Ap’ Tin Arhi (Let’s Go From The Start) written by Dimitris Kontopoulos and Nikos Moraitis. Other hits quickly followed, as did record numbers of YouTube and Spotify streams, and social media followers.
Andreas Haukeland, better known as TIX, hails from Bærum (just outside of Oslo) and is one of Norway’s most popular artists. The musician, producer and songwriter performs as his persona TIX, a nickname he chose to take ownership of his experience of growing up with Tourette’s syndrome (a condition which can lead to different types of involuntary tics). In 2015, the singer-songwriter had his first major breakthrough with the Sjeiken which became a party anthem for that year’s ‘russ’ (Norwegian high school graduates). The hitmaker then went on to make a name for himself co-writing Ava Max’s Sweet but Psycho, which became the most played song of 2018.
Albina will represent Croatia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 in Rotterdam with the song ‘Tick-Tock’. The singer from Split has displayed a burning passion for performance since she was young; her talent for singing was nurtured by her family who encouraged her to also learn the piano. The Dora ‘21 (national final) champion released her first single Imuna na strah (Immune to Fear) towards the end of last year, but says of her winning track Tick-Tock that she knew this would be the song to define her as an artist and performer. Albina can’t wait to take to the Eurovision stage, and hopes to follow in the footsteps of her pop idols Christina Aguilera and Little Mix by giving the performance of her life!
