Eurovision Moldova - here we go again!
Eurovision is our passion! We are back again 5 years later at the crime scene where it all started - Eurovision Moldova, Chișinău! ❤ ✈ This time with amazingly 2 songs in the final as artists/backing vocalists/songwriters and it was a rush! 😂😥
We went as backing vocalists live on TV broadcasts on 7 songs in the countries Moldova, Belarus and Iceland and this year we also made a high score competing with 7 songs in Belarus, Moldova, Romania, Latvia and Poland and had 2 songs that took the 3rd place in the finals!

Endlessly, live performance:
In 2013 we went to Moldova with one song "I need you now" and this time we had two and not more than 5 days so it was an exciting challenge with choreography, led skirts, techical details on stage, video led background that we had to prepare from Sweden and finish up in Moldova.
We had a generous welcome and hospitality by the talented artist Doinita who managed to help us get a drive to and from the hotel, to the TV stations, reharsals and she also managed to give us some sightseeing to an eco village and local Moldovan restaurants with live music in the evenings. At the final show she offered us professional hair and makeup.
Behind the scenes:
The day after we came to Moldova we also did an early TV show at Prime Ora TV to promote the song.

More behind the scene:
There have been many ups and downs with over 30 songs in 16 countries since 2013 - a score quite unique for 2 female European composers and producers, don't you think? We often thought of quitting as Eurovision for us is the ❤ of good MUSIC and NOT business, competition, politics and backstabbing! People have stealed our songs, treated and used us like dogs, missused our music rights, claimed lawsuits, disqualified us with fake votes and we have been accused by the jury of cheating the artist by selling songs for high prices. 😲 The truth is we don't earn much, we usually work for free for Eurovision and most countries never send the royalties to Sweden. We always paid from our own pockets to travel abroad except for one country, so we also need to keep up with a regular income Monday-Thursday.
But here we are again and we did NOT give up yet because of all you great music lovers out there who keep following and supporting us with your kind words and inspire us to find new artists and new ways! ❤ Maybe this will be our last trip to a national selection abroad, who knows? The goal has always and still is Melodifestivalen and the big Eurovision and we still have our hopes. This is a competition with no guarantees even at the first selection when you send a song among 3000 others. We can spend weeks and months each year finding artists and working on demos that don't pass. As long as the main focus is business it will unfortunately be the same struggle to win and get selected. Despite this we are grateful for all the wonderful opportunities Eurovision gave us since childhood and to be able to share the music with you, now and in the future!
