Life after Eurovision: Part five20 October 2015 at 23:30 CEST
Participating in the Eurovision Song Contest is a milestone in the career of our artists and using it as a platform for a whole new audience is the best reward they can get from this experience, regardless of their results. On our Life After Eurovision series we bring you updates on our Eurovision Song Contest stars. This time we focus on the most recent winners of the Eurovision Song Contest: Måns Zelmerlöw, Conchita Wurst, Emmelie de Forest and Loreen, and you can read about their latest releases on the slide below:
2015: MÅNS ZELMERLÖW
Sweden's Måns was crowned the winner of the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest, five months ago in Vienna, which allowed him to take the success of his winning song Heroes all over Europe... and beyond, as he's also performed it in China! Zelmerlöw is in the middle of his European tour at the moment but, before that, he found some time to film a very interesting video, directed by Mikeadelica, for the follow-up single to his Eurovision victor, Should Have Gone Home:
Conchita won the competition for Austria in Copenhagen last year with Rise Like a Phoenix and she hasn't stopped working since. As we saw during this year's Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna, she released her debut album which includes a good blend of genres, from Electronica to pop, dance, or this: the sassy Where Have All The Good Men Gone which she performed last month live at Starnacht aus der Wachau:
Back in August the Eurovision Song Contest winner for Denmark in 2013, Emmelie de Forest, released a new single, while she is working on the completion of her second album. Emmelie travelled to Rome for the filming of the video, where she shows many different looks and a new music style compared to the one we're familiar with from Only Teardrops. This new song is called Hopscotch.
After making a comeback as one of the guests in this year's Swedish national selection, Melodifestivalen, with the song Paper Lights (Higher), Loreen released a well-received new single entitled I'm In It With You. The preparations for her second album Paperlight are well on their way and she's been recording in a studio in Paris over the past weeks. Earlier this month Loreen premiered the video for I'm In It With You, inspired in the 1979 film American film Over The Edge:
