It’s time to face the music.
No, you didn’t fall asleep and wake up during an X Factor live show. It’s time for the second round of MP!’s Euro 2016. This time you have the choice of England’s premier girl group, a Welsh froot fan, a former Russian dance champion and a Slovakian on a hoverboard.
Once you’ve made your mind up, make sure you vote in the poll at the bottom.
🇬🇧 England: Little Mix
Little Mix are amazing. We reckon you already know that, but in case you don’t, here’s why. They have killer live vocals. They dance flat out and still have perfect harmonies. But we love them most for their friendship, which is squad goals. If you need any more proof, watch their performance at the Summertime Ball [spoiler: they slay].
🇬🇧 Wales: Marina and the Diamonds
Marina and the Diamonds has had hits across the whole of Europe. Did you know ‘How To Be A Heartbreaker’ went to Number 18 in Denmark? You do now. Anyway, Marina’s brand of off-kilter pop makes her one of the quirkiest ladies in European pop. We don’t know about you, but we’d also like to spend all summer in the ‘Blue’ theme park.
🇷🇺 Russia: Hanna
Hanna started her career in Russia as a dancer, winning competitions across the country. She then went on to become a singer, as well as launching a capsule fashion collection. We love her song ‘????, ? ?????????’, which translates to ‘Mum, I’m In Love’. Presumably, she wrote this after opening Niall Horan’s Snapchat story. Watch out for some killer choreo at the end.
🇸🇰 Slovakia: Martin Harich
On his YouTube page, Martin Harich says that he is a “singer, songwriter, musician, TV presenter and producer.” In other words, he’s the Slovakian Marvin Humes. Anyway, ‘Under The Lamps’ is a lovely little song, that explodes with an Avicii-style drop. If you need more reason to click play on the video, Martin is seen riding a hoverboard down what could be the longest road in the world.
