Annual convention 2022

We would like to kindly invite all Eurovision fans to our Annual Club Convention in 2022 on November 19th at the GLORIA-Theater in Cologne.


Since we currently cannot know how the corona pandemic will develop until November, we may - as precautionary measures for the safety of all participants - apply corona-compliant access rules, such as the 2G+ regulation in the previous year.


We have invited the following star guests:


Ingrid Laurent© Ako Lehemets   



The representative of Estonia at the ESC 2022 got the audience with his song "Hope" in Turin. We are confident that he will be able to do the same at the club meeting.






At ESC 2019, Selma and Friðrik performed as a duo in the Euro Fan Café. The two delighted the fans with a rousing ESC program. We are therefore particularly looking forward to their joint appearance.

 In 1999, Selma became second at the ESC in Jerusalem with her song "All Out Of Luck" for Iceland. In 2005 she was already an acclaimed star guest at our club meeting. 

Michael klein© RIGG VIDBURDIR  
Friðrik Ómar
represented Iceland together with Regina Ósk as Euroband at ESC 2008 in Belgrade with "This Is My Life". In 2009 he was backing singer for Yohanna in Moscow and in 2019 he came second in the Icelandic preselection.


Ingrid Laurent© Chiara   



With "The One That I Love" (1998, 3rd place) and "Angel" (2005, 2nd place), Chiara scratched the first ESC victory for Malta twice.
When she took part for the third time in 2009, she came in 22nd with "What If We".

We are happy to finally welcome the powerful-voiced ballad queen to our GLORIA.





Ingrid Laurent© GLOBAL Records   



With "Llámame" WRS landed 18th place at this year's ESC - and not only in his Romanian homeland an acclaimed summer hit.
We called him and booked him for the club meeting, where he's bound to rip everyone from their seats with hot Latino rhythms.






In addition to the appearances of the star guests, there will again be contributions to the programme. The traditional ESC disco with DJ Ohrmeister afterwards depends on the corona rules that apply at the time.The same applies to the traditional raffle.  



Our club member Bernd Ochs will lead through the program for the fourth time. Bernd has been a member of the ECG since the association was founded and, together with Stefan Leidner from the OGAE, made the Frankfurt regional meeting one of the largest local ESC meetings in Germany. There he moderates the previews, each with over 100 guests, as well as the "Grand Prix sur le Main", an internal Frankfurt competition.
