Yesterday marked a special night in the Eurovision calendar. The red carpet, or should we say blue was rolled out in spectacular fashion to herald the beginning of Eurovision week. All nations were present, and were officially welcomed by Lisbon, and all walked glamorously down the blue carpet to be met by hoards of press. The event which has now become a tradition at the contest, and gives fans and the press a chance to meet the 2018 Eurovision celebrities. Eurovoxx were lucky enough to be part of it, and on the carpet was Andy, Clara, Jess and Tural. The next four countries that got interviewed were Albania, Armenia, Austria and Azerbaijan.

He told us, "I am very impressed, I am having a wonderful time here, and thank you so much to the organisers for all of this". We said that we love the song, because it is in Armenian, authentic and honest, Servak said, "it was very important for me at the beginning to sing in Armenian, it is a big responsibility, and I am very happy to be here. I am proud to represent my country". Of the semi finals, and his nerves, the Armenian told us, "I am calm, I am not nervous, I am ready to go on stage, I am ready to deliver my message".
