Velvo Sings Eurovision • 2024

In the organizer's words:

The 'Malmö the Third' edition

When the Eurovision Song Contest came to Düsseldorf in 2011, it was no longer a question for Mayo Velvo, as a die-hard 'Grand Prix' fan, to put the long-cherished idea of a 'Eurovision' program into practice. Since then, the Velvo team - accompanied as always by Thomas Möller on the piano - has presented a new edition of 'Velvo sings Eurovision' every year in the weeks just before the main ESC event. Velvos serves up a musical journey through eight decades of Eurovision history with polyglot pathos hits, combined with illustrious stories and dazzling background knowledge, which always lend this largest popular music festival a touch of brilliance, but also unintentional comedy.

The focus of the program changes with each edition, as Mayo Velvo and his pianist Thomas Möller focus their dramaturgical attention on the ESC history of the previous year's winning country. And so the focus is once again on 'Sweden', which won the ESC crown for the seventh time last year and is hosting the ESC circus in Malmö for the third time. Even if mostly with just vocals and piano, the Velvo team gets to the heart of many a dramatic Eurovision production and also, with unerring instinct, includes a supposed favorite for the next ESC victory in the program even before the Grand Final ('Rise like a Phoenix' (2014) - 'Heroes' (2015) - 'Amar pelos dois' (2017)).

And so, every year, an ever-growing audience enjoys a varied evening of songs with well-known Grand Prix hits, almost forgotten losers and many an uncrowned Eurovision classic - lovingly arranged, commented on and garnished with occasional surprise guests. The perfect way to get in the mood for the annual Eurovision Song Contest before it's "12 points go to..." again!
