As every year , the names of the hosts of the Eurovision Song Contest remain one of the significant features of the contest. We remind you that last year in Kiev the team of hosts was formed by three males , Oleksandr Skichko,Volodymyr Ostapchuk  and Timur Miroshnychenko. However this year things seem to be different and the mission will be a totally female case.

This afternoon the Portuguese national broadcaster (RTP) announced officially the hosts of the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest. Not one not two but four beautiful ladies will be the ones to present May’s show:  Catarina Furtado, Silvia Alberto, Filomena Cautela and Daniela Ruah. It will be the first time for all of them to live such experience since it’s Portugal’s  first time to organize the Contest. However two of them, Catarina and Silvia, have experienced in the past many times this role, in finals of Portuguese national selection. ( Festival da Cançao)
