Levina has travelled to Austria to promote her song ahead of the 62nd edition of the Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv, Ukraine.
Germany’s entrant for this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, Levina, has travelled to Austria to promote herself and her song “Perfect Life” before the contest. As well as performing for the Austrian broadcaster ORF, Levina met up with Austrian entrant Nathan Trent.
Levina has travelled to multiple different countries as part of her pre-contest promotional tour. Her tour started in Georgia, where she performed “Perfect Life” on GBP Radio. From there she went to the official pre-parties – London Eurovision Party, Israel Calling in the Israeli capital of Tel Aviv, and Eurovision in Concert in Amsterdam. In addition to this, she met Armenian entrant Artsvik in Armenia to promote her song on TV, and the same again in Skopje, FYR Macedonia.
Levina will be representing Germany at this years contest in Kyiv, she was chosen by the German public to represent her country in Kyiv in early February, and her rendition of “Perfect Life” prevailed in the superfinal over her other entry, “Wildfire”. The song received an impressive 69% of the votes. It remains to be seen whether the song will be found guilty of plagiarism, or what action would be taken in the event of this.
On April 28, Levina will be releasing her debut album Unexpected. The album has been fully recorded and will be released with two weeks to go until the final of Eurovision 2017 in Kyiv, Ukraine.
