One of the great things about Eurovision artists singing traditional Christmas songs, is hearing the well-loved Christmas classics in a new language. Sometimes it takes the song to a whole new level, and other times it just sounds funny. What do you think of this version of the American classic Jingle Bells?

Lauris Reinkis represented Latvia in the 2003 Eurovision Song Contest on homeground in Riga as one third of the group F.L.Y. They performed “Hello From Mars”, finishing 24th with a total of 5 points.

I'm Norwegian, presently living in Iceland. My mom loves Eurovision, and always let me stay up to watch the contest since before I can remember, so I'm "second generation Eurovision lunatic". My musical god is David Bowie, so I'm obviously not into the stereotypical Eurovision songs. I prefer the rocky/bluesy/jazzy/ethnic songs over schlager and mainstream ballads, though I occasionally surprise myself (and others)... I HATE canned drums and "Cvet Z juga". Photo © Tobias König
