His next single, ‘Me Gusta’, premiered in front of 17,000 viewers in Madrid which attracted many fans from the UK, Israel and Spain amongst many others. “Abu Dhabi” reached the top spot in the YouTube Trending Chart and scored over 1 million views in only 3 days from people in over 130 countries. Now, “Acapella” is approaching 8 million views on YouTube and is on track to become Mikolas’ most viewed video yet!

My first memory of watching the Eurovision Song Contest was back in 2001 and, over the years, my passion and enthusiasm for the contest has very much turned into an obsession. I adore music and I love geography, so this contest is a natural fit for me. If la la loving Eurovision was a crime, I'd certainly be a criminal!
