Yesterday on February the 13th five Eurovision stars celebrated their birthday. Today are only two that have a birthday, that is two birthday ladies. One had multiple attempts at the national selection. Yulia Savicheva and Anita Thallaug were born on this day.
Anita Thallaug, 80
Norway selected one of Anita’s three songs that she sang at Melodi Grand Prix in 1963. That is the song “Solhverv”, which she performed in London. Unfortunately for her the song got 0 points at the contest. Which gave her the 13th and the last place.
Yulia Savicheva, 31
Russia go Yulia to go on their behalf to Istanbul, Turkey in 2004. Therefore she perfomed the song “Belive Me” on the stage with colorful shirtless men. This performance gave her 67 points, that is she got the 11th place at the final.
