'Eurovision in Concert' is an annual tradition hosted by the Netherlands at Melkweg nightclub in Amsterdam. While there are many preview concerts held across all participating countries (including Australia where you can see our very own Dami Im perform her anthem 'Sound of Silence' at various locations across the country), this is typically the biggest.
This year saw 26 out of the final 43 participating countries take part and it certainly gave a taste of things to come.
Croatia's Nina Kraljić, who was conspicuously absent from her official video submission gave her debut performance of her song 'Lighthouse', wearing an avant-garde gown with gothic embellishment. Note Dami: this is one female contestant to watch out for!
Also present was Belarus's IVAN, who despite standing out from the crowd with his long red hair and all-white, slightly cassock-like ensemble, did not actually strip down and perform nude accompanied by live wolves, as it's previously been hinted he wants to do for his live Eurovision performance.
Participating countries included Spain, Moldova, Belarus, Croatia, Albania, Switzerland, Israel, Slovenia, Italy, Estonia, Poland, Netherlands, Montenegro, Ukraine, France, Malta, Latvia, United Kingdom, Romania, Serbia, Austria, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Estonia, Iceland and F.Y.R. Macedonia.
