- Bulgaria – Victoria
- Spain – Blas Cantó
Also confirmed as support acts are Maggic McNeal (Netherlands 1980), Marga Bult (Netherlands 1987) and Linda Wagenmakers (Netherlands 2000).
Eurovision in Concert is one of the biggest and most popular Eurovision preview parties, and takes place every year in Amsterdam in the run up to the contest. The show was founded by a group of Dutch fans in 2009, and has grown into a hugely popular event among fans and competing artists.
35 of the 42 competing countries in the 2017 contest attended Eurovision in Contest, a new record for the event. 2018 marked the 10th anniversary of the show. Last year’s event saw 28 of the 41 competing artists at Eurovision perform their entries. The special guests on the night included Sieneke (Netherlands 2010), Justine Pelmelay (Netherlands 1989), Dana International (Israel 1998 and 2011) and Nicole (Germany 1982).
