Another day, another two birthdays. These two are quite different from each other in many ways. One is a girl, the other is a boy. One performed in their country’s national language, the other performed in English. One was a solo act, the other was part of a duet. One performed a ballad, the other a mid-tempo song. The list goes on… They both have long hair, though.
Eyþór Ingi, 28
Eyþór Ingi Gunnlaugsson represented Iceland in the 2013 Eurovision in Malmö, with the Icelandic language “Ég á líf”. This was the first, and so far only, time Iceland sent an entry in Icelandic since the language rule was lifted. Finishing 7th in his semi, he ended in “Icelandic territory” (somewhere around 16th…) in the final; 17th. Today he turns 28!
Elina Born, 23
Elina Born represented Estonia in the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna. She did so alongside Stig Rästa. Stig was also the songwriter behind their entry “Goodbye to Yesterday”. They finished third in their semi, and in the grand final they came 7th.
All of us here at escXtra send our wishes for an Xtra amazingly wonderful birthday to these two Eurostars!!
The most important birthday boy today, however, is our own Rodrigo, who celebrates his double 3!
Happy Birthday, Rodrigo!!
