Yesterday we celebrated two Eurovision birthday girls, while today we bring you three! One of them represented a Big 5 country, and was consequently directly qualified for the final. One achieved a top 5 result, which doesn’t happen every year for this country. We give you Lisa Andreas
Anita represented Austria at the 1984 Eurovision Song Contest in Luxembourg. She performed the song “Einfach weg”, finishing dead last after receiving a mere 5 points. Gary Lux, who has represented Austria at Eurovision six times, was one of her backing singers.
Edurne represented Spain at the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna. In the weeks leading up to the contest, her song “Amanecer” was among the fan favorites. On the night of the final, however, she only finished 21st out of 27 participating countries. This came as a big shock to many Spanish fans, as they had expected a top 5 result.
Lisa Andreas, 30
Lisa represented Cyprus at the 2004 Eurovision Song Contest in Istanbul. She was only 16 years old at the time, which made her the youngest participant. There was however nothing “young and inexperienced” about her performance. She delivered a wonderful performance of her song, “Stronger Every Minute”. As a result of this, she finished in a well deserved 5th place.
All of us here at escXtra wish these three amazing Eurostars the very best on their birthdays!
