It’s comeback week here on escXtra.com and today it’s time for a 1990s comeback. Today’s choice comes from Nathan.

I didn’t mean to copy my colleague Nick yesterday by also picking a winner, it just so happens that the most memorable comeback for me in the decade of the 90s was a winning return.

This is probably one of the most iconic winning entries due to winning on a tie-break procedure and having a great dance routine to accompany the on-point vocals from someone who very quickly became a national treasure in their home nation.

This was a return in 1991 that followed a third place in 1983. Captured by a storm wind, the English translation of the song.

Carola’s “Fångad av en stormvind” was the winner due to a count back rule, and if today’s tiebreak procedure had been used she would have been denied the victory by France’s “C’est le dernier qui a parlé qui a raison” by Amina.

Carola would then go on to make a further comeback in 2006 with “Invincible” finishing in 5th place.

Technical Lead: I am a huge pop music fan and I love Rihanna, Years & Years, Sia, Zara Larsson and Sam Smith. However, more importantly, I love Eurovision. Melodifestivalen is my favourite National Final and if things look out of place on the website, it's most definitely my fault.
