Four more names attending the 60th Anniversary!

Host broadcaster of the 60th Anniversary Show of the Eurovision Song Contest BBC has announced four more names taking part in the show. Among them: three classic winners!
First up is Denmark’s second winning act: The Olsen Brothers. The Danish duo surprisingly won the 2000 Eurovision Song Contest with their song Fly On The Wings Of Love, a true modern classic in our Eurovision world. Jørgen and Noller have both tried to represent Denmark on more than one occasion, but the one time they managed to do it, they took home the trophy. Relive their performance below!

Secondly, one of the ultimate classic winners of the Eurovision Song Contest. She’s been in the contest twice, winning it once, coming third on her second go: Anne Marie David! Anne Marie is known as a true Eurovision fan, also appearing at last year’s London Eurovision show. She won the contest in 1973 with Tu Te Reconnaîtras, the second consecutive victory for Luxembourg. Six years after, she came back with Je Suis L’Enfant Soleil for France, making it into third. Relive her winner below!
And there’s another winner in it, and what a name it is. It’s Johnny Logan! The record holder when it comes to Eurovision victories. As a singer, he’s won the contest twice, once in 1980 with What’s Another Year, returning seven years later to once again rule the competition with one of the all-time favourites of many fans, Hold Me Now. He composed that last song himself and returned to the competition as a composer in 1992, composing Linda Martin’s winner Why Me? Relive his most beloved winner Hold Me Now below!
Finally, BBC have revealed a fourth act taking part in the show. She was one of the hot favourites to win the contest, but lost out to winner Marie N and finished in seventh place: Rosa López. She told us Europe was celebrating in 2002, so let’s assume she’s going to bring us that celebration once more and makes sure we indeed celebrate on the night of the 60th Anniversary Show! Relive her moment of Eurovision glory below:
BBC have said they would announce more acts as the week went along, so we expect some more names tomorrow! So far, Conchita Wurst, Lordi, Nicole, Emmelie de Forest, Natasha St-Pier and The Herreys have been confirmed to appear on the show. Tickets for the show will go on sale tomorrow!
