Some Eurovision singers disappear into the great “nothingness” after returning home from the contest, while others…don’t. Behind today’s door in our Advent Calendar hides a singer who has had an amazing career after taking part, and winning, in 1988. We are of course talking about the one and only Celin Dion, who’s here to get the third advent weekend started!

Celine Dion represented Switzerland in the 1988 Eurovision Song Contest in Dublin. She won the contest with “Ne partez pas sans moi”, earning a total of 137 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
