The birthday girl did a solo for her country and the birthday boy took part as a part of Ruffus. Lucie Jones and Ivo Etti where born on this day.

Ivo Etti, 39

Ivo Etti was part of the indie band Ruffus. The band took part at the Estonian preselection for Eurovision in 2003 for the joke of it. However they ended up winning the show and thus going to Riga. There they performed the song “Eighties coming back”. The song got 24 points, and placed 21st out of 26 countries.

Lucie Jones, 27

United Kingdom selected the talented Lucie to be their representative at Eurovision in 2017. That is why Jones went on stage in Ukraine and performed the song “Never Give Up On You”. Her entry got 111 points at the final, and therefore secured the 15th place — one of UK’s best placement the last ten years.

We all here at escXtra would like to wish success on their birthday!
