In the first collaboration to come out of the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest, Finland's Darude has released a remix of Austrian participant PÆNDA's 'Limits'. A huge collaboration will be coming up too on 18 May as former winners Conchita Wurst and Måns Zelmerlöw join former runners-up Verka Serduchka and Eleni Foureira in a song-swap performance.
Finland's Eurovision representative Darude heard the Austrian entry by PÆNDA and approached her for permission to remix the entry. He dropped the remixed version of Limits with an announcement on Twitter.
The Sandstorm producer has a long list of collaborations and PÆNDA is the latest as he adds a dance edge to the softly sung ballad.
Eurovision stars work together often. For example, during the Melodifestivalen final this year when the winners of 1998 and 1999 Dana International and Charlotte Perrelli, joined forces on a song performed especially for the show. Diva To Diva proved popular and became a hit in Sweden.
Back in 2017, Norway's JOWST and Bulgaria's Kristian Kostov both reached the Eurovision Song Contest Grand Final and finished in the top 10. Kristian Kostov took second place for Bulgaria, and the 2 artists became close. After the competition, they turned friendship into collaboration with a song called Burning Bridges, also the theme of the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest.
This Saturday a very exciting artist collaboration will be coming up, as the producers of the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest have come up with a special collaboration between the following singers who will sing each other's participating songs:
