Moldova’s DoReDos have filmed their postcard for the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 at the Hotel Palace of Vidago.
DoReDos have filmed their postcard for Eurovision today at the Hotel Palace of Vidago. The Hotel Palace of Vidago was constructed in 1910, following the discovering of thermal springs in the area during the 1800s. The hotel went on to be one of the most luxurious on the Iberian Peninsula, it was opened by the then King of Portugal and has since gone on to be visited by numerous famous personalities from across the globe.
The postcards are short clips that are shown to the audience while the artist gets ready on stage. The following artists have also filmed their postcards:
- Czech Republic
- United Kingdom
- San Marino
- FYR Macedonia
DoReDoS were crowned as the Moldovan entrants for the Eurovision Song Contest in February. The group went in to the final of O Melodie Pentru Europa 2018 as the favourites to win and went on to top both the public vote and jury vote.
The group previously participated in O melodie pentru Europa twice before this year. In 2016, the group entered the Moldovan national selection with the song FunnyFolk and finished in 4th place. In 2015, they placed 6th with the song Maricica. DoReDos will represent Moldova at the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 in Lisbon, Portugal this May with their song “My Lucky Day”.
Moldova debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2005 when the contest was last held in Kyiv, Ukraine. In 2005 Moldova debuted in the contest alongside Bulgaria, while that year Hungary also returned to the contest having been absent since 1998. Moldova was in its worse run of results in their history in the contest, having failed to make the final since 2013. At the 2016 contest in Stockholm, the country finished 17th in their semi-final scoring a total of 33 points.
