Andy Carlisle, UK | Editor-in-Chief
Andy is the creator of Eurovoxx, and has been a huge fan of the contest since 1993, when he watched for the first time as a young child, and has never missed a contest since.
He went to all shows in Stockholm 2016, and that is where he got the idea to start a Eurovision YouTube channel, which has since evolved into Eurovoxx!
Andy loves to travel, most recently travelling to Romania, Moldova and Poland (where he appeared on stage as part of the Polish Eurovision selection show).

Clara Cabrera is a Spanish artist and writer who is really happy to be a part of the team.

Coming from a TV production background and being an avid fan of music, he sees Eurovision as a unique phenomenon that brings his career and his passion together. He is also fascinated by the contest's historical significance, and how it showcases multiple cultures at once.
Favourite Eurovision entry: "Soldi" by Mahmood (Italy 2019)
Paolo Nery, UK | Editor
I’m Paolo Nery, originally from London but currently studying in Dundee, Scotland. My earliest Eurovision memory was seeing Lithuania in 2006 but first became a Eurovision lover in 2011 when I found out Blue was representing the UK and since then I have watched and followed it religiously every year. Hopefully in the future I’d love to go watch the show live in the arena, given that the price is right! Outside the Eurovision bubble, I’m a student full time, and a baker and archer in my spare time, a lovely mix of stress reliefs and inducers!
Favourite Eurovision Entry: ‘La La Love’ by Ivi Adamou (Cyprus 2012)
Pollyanna Edwards, UK | Editor
I’m Pollyanna and I’m from a small town in the East of England. My earliest Eurovision memory is watching Lordi win in 2006 when I was just 6 years old, and being absolutely in awe of the contest ever since. Luckily my parents are also fans so it’s been a family event for us every year!
Since 2014 I’ve been following the contest religiously including national finals (Eesti Laul is my absolute favourite) and hope to one day be at the Grand Final in person. Outside of Eurovision, I work in a DIY shop and in my spare time I play piano and learn various languages.

My earliest memory from the contest is Lordi winning when I was 6 years old and I’ve been following the contest ever since 2006.
Outside of Eurovision, I’m a huge sports nerd. I particularly love rugby, American football and Ice hockey and play the first two at local clubs. I also love trying to learn languages and travelling. A bit weirdly, one of my favourite hobbies is also cocktail making!

My first Eurovision experience was in 2006 when it was held in Athens, Greece but I am really following it since 2010 when our very own Lena made us proud in Oslo, Norway.
Since then I’m a hardcore fan listening almost only to Eurovision music and keeping in touch with the contest the whole year.
I’ve never been to a contest - the only experience for me was when I visited the German national selection in 2017.
My favorite Eurovision song is Fuego by the incredible Eleni Foureira

¡Hola! This boy is Dany, from Seville (Andalusia, Spain). He is a graduate in journalism and a big Eurovision fan. So Eurovoxx is the best place to put both things together.
His passion for Eurovision began since he was a child. Fondly remember his family dinners in front of the TV on Eurovision night to watch and comment on the show together. Over the years, his passion was growing and, finally, he lived his first live show in Vienna 2015. He met the Eurovoxx team at the Eurovision Pre-Party in Madrid in 2019 and, after that, we had a great time in Tel Aviv together.
Dany loves music, videogames, movies, sports, animals and nature. He’s a curious person who always wants to learn. For example, he’s currently studying English and Italian.

Hanna Widman, Sweden
My name is Hanna, I am a 21 almost 22 year old Eurovision fan (and of course Melodifestivalen too) from the far north of Sweden!
I’ve been watching Eurovision and Melodifestivalen since I was a little kid in the early 00’s, but it wasn’t until 2015 I became a proper Eurovision fan!
Besides loving Eurovision I am also a huge language nerd and loves learning new languages etc! So much so I am actually studying to become a Swedish and English teacher!
FAVOURITE EUROVISION SONG: Euphoria (Sweden 2012)
Hannah Jones, UK
I'm Hannah and I come from a small town about an hour north of London! I currently study an undergraduate degree in Psychology and I'm also a huge Eurovision fan.
The first ever Eurovision song I remember is Dima Bilan's Believe back from 2008 but I truly became a fan back in 2015.
Besides from loving Eurovision and studying for my degree, I also love to write and play songs on my ukulele and would love to eventually combine music and psychology together as a music therapist.
Jana Bebek, Germany
I'm Jana from Germany. My earliest Eurovision memory was the show of 2009, where I was amazed by all those different flags from countries all over Europe and further. And that's what I love about Eurovision: to celebrate together as a big family, no matter where you're from.
Last year was my first time live at the ESC and that was truly one of my best moments so far. Besides Eurovision, I'm studying Tourism Management and in my spare time I improve my language skills and travel as much as I can.
My favourite Eurovision entries: Bistra Voda - Regina ( Bosnia&Herzegovina 2009) and Moja Štikla - Severina (Croatia 2006)
Laura Cumbo, UK
Raised in a Eurovision-loving family, Laura has loved everything Eurovision since as far back as she can remember, even writing about it for her Masters dissertation.
Having never missed a broadcast (including every semi since they started) Laura has been to 2 contests (Stockholm and Kiev) and plans to go to many more.
Eurovision unites several of Laura’s biggest interests - travelling, pop culture and a love of all things glitzy. She lives in London with her cat, who has as yet shown a disappointing lack of interest in Eurovision, though Laura has high hopes that he’ll see the error of his ways.
Favourite Eurovision entry: 'Dschingis Khan' by Dschingis Khan (Germany 1979)
Michael Shmaytser, Israel
Israeli PR advisor, originally from Crimea, Ukraine. Communication, media, music and politics are my fortes, believe that music can gap on everything, living in two of the most controversial places in the world, can proudly say that it is our choice to seed in hatred and war or to spread tolerance and love.
Following Eurovision since 2005 and Shiri Maimon’s great performance, Eurovision is 365 days in a year for me. Happy to be part of this great group of people called Eurovoxx.
Favourite Eurovision entry: Inga and Anush – Jan Jan (Armenia 2009)
Raffaella Frymark, USA
Sanja Daić, Croatia
I'm Sanja, a psychologist from Croatia with an interest in creative writing. I'm very happy to be a part of this team and share my enthusiasm towards Eurovision with other lovely fans.
My ESC mania began in 1998 when I first watched the contest with my family and rooted for my country's entry Neka mi ne svane. Since then, May is by far my favourite month of the year!
When my friends ask me why do I love Eurovision so much, my answer is – where else can you discover so many different artists and genres and learn about other languages, geography, food, etc. And where else can you see something as funny as Russian babushkas baking bread while partying on the big stage?!
Besides being a huge Eurovision fan, I'm also a big football fan and a Harry Potter fan.
Favourite Eurovision entry: Wild dances by Ruslana (Ukraine 2004)
Sandra Ackefjord, Sweden
I'm a 25 year old sound designer that finished my bachelor in Media Technology this spring. I have had a love for Eurovision since 2000 when I saw Olsen Brothers win as a 6 year old child.
Since then I have watched it every year and developed a passion for the contest. Especially as a Swedish Eurovision fan it's special to be engaged in the contest when we have had a huge success.
But the most special thing is that I have found long term friends through my fandom and that's something I will never forget.
I have also 2 fluffy cats that I adore, but also take time to watch alot of documentary in my free time and being on social events.
My favorite Eurovision entry: "Euphoria" By Loreen (Sweden, 2012)
Shiann Humphrey, UK
Hi, I’m Shiann. I am from London in the UK. I’m currently a student, who absolutely loves all things music! (Especially Eurovision of course!) Some of my other interests besides ESC include: languages, art/design and photography.
I got super into Eurovision back in 2012 and have watched ever since! After 7+ years of watching from afar, I very much look forward to being able to watch the contest live and in person!
My favourite Eurovision entry has to be Knez - Adio! (Montenegro 2015)
Thomas Corbett, Ireland
Good Evening Europe, I'm Thomas from Port Laoise in Ireland. I've been a massive fan of Eurovision since the mid 90s and I have lots of amazing childhood memories of the four Irish victories in that decade.
My love for Eurovision grew throughout the naughties as the music became more 'pop' and the stage performances got more elaborate. A lifelong dream finally came through when I attended the Eurovision in Lisbon 2018 and my passion became an obsession. I knew I would be attending every year from then on.
I love Eurovision because it's a beacon of unity, friendship, positivity, inclusivity and celebration across Europe (and further afield).
In my spare time, I'm an amateur dancer and often try to perfect some ESC dance routines (Fuego, She Got Me, Abanibi, On Fire) with varying degrees of success.
Patiently waiting for Eurovision to come home to Ireland...one day soon!
Favourite Eurovision Entry: Ruslana — Wild Dances (Ukraine, 2004)*.

Eurovision has opened up many doors, allowing me to make friends throughout the fandom, understand different cultures and languages better, and to find out more about myself that I never thought I'd learn otherwise.

Voda (Slovenia 2020)
Oculis Videre (Söngvakeppnin)
Grow (Netherlands 2020)
