Quite a lot of Eurovision performers celebrated their birthday yesterday on November 6th. Today however there is one gentleman which has a birthday. When he participated in Eurovision he was MP at the Icelandic Parliament. In addition he became the Minister of Health for one year. I suppose it’s really good that politicians that performs on the Eurovision stage speaks against prejudices. Today Óttarr Proppé has a birthday!
Óttarr Proppé, 49
Iceland picked Pollapönk to reprecent them at Eurovision in 2014. Óttarr is one of the performers of Pollapönk. At the stage in Copenhagen he was wearing the purple outfit. They performed the song “No Prejudice” and advanced to the final. At the final they got 58 points, therefore reaching the 15th place. That is Iceland’s best placement at Eurovision since Yohanna’s second place in 2009.
We at all here at escXtra would like to wish him the best on his birthday.
