Nick's Eurovision winners: 1997-2016

Dublin 1997: Jalisse – Fiumi Di Parole (Italy)

We immediately kick off with the toughest year out there for me. 1997 was an incredibly strong year, with songs like PrimadonnaDinle or Keelatud Maa. However, there was a sacred top two there for me: the United Kingdom and Italy. Both of them feature in my all time top ten, both of them are songs that would have been my winner in 90% of the contests we’ve had.
In the end, there can only be one winner (we’ve passed 1969. Sadly) and that has to be Italy for me. Fiumi Di Parole has grown to be my all time favourite Eurovision song. It finished in fourth and I am really not surprised that Italy decided to leave the contest when this didn’t do better than that.
Anyway, off to Milano!
