An Xtra Happy Birthday; August 10th

Today we are celebrating two Eurovision birthday girls. One is from Croatia, the other from Malta. One participated as part of a group, the other was on her own. They are both children of the 80s, though, and they both ended up close to the bottom of the scoreboard in their year at Eurovision. 

Lynn Chircop, 37

Lynn Chircop represented Malta in the 2003 Eurovision Song Contest in Riga. She performed the song “To Dream Again”, finishing in 25th place. As there were only 26 participating countries this year, this means she finished second to last, beating only the UK’s Jemini and their “Cry Baby”.

Nika Antolos, 28

Nika Antolos represented Croatia in the 2010 Eurovision as part of the group Feminnem. They performed “Lako ja sve”, finishing 13th in their semi-final. Due to this they failed to qualify for the grand final. Nika was also part of Feminnem when they participated in Dora 2009 with “Poljupci U Boji“, finishing third, thus not making it to Eurovision in Moscow.

All of us here at escXtra hope that both Lynn and Nika have Xtra super birthdays today!
