An Xtra Happy Birthday; May 22nd!

Yesterday on the 21st of May, two Eurovision lads celebrated their birthday. Today there are also two Eurovision performers that have a birthday. He took part at the 11th Eurovision Song Contest and she in the 51st. Dominique Walter and Magda Femme were born on this day.

Dominique Walter, 76

France picked Dominique in 1966 to be their reprecentive at Eurovision. That is why sang “Chez nous” at the stage in Oslo, Norway. At the end of the show, Walter got one point which was enough not to end in the last place. But the song placed 16th out of 18 nations. Interestingly enough France’s entries the year before and after both placed third at the contest. That is “N’avoue jamais” in 1965 and “Il doit faire beau là-bas” in 1967.

Magda Femme, 47

Magda joined her former band “Ich Troje” as a guest star in 2006. But the band was selected for Eurovision that year for Poland. She therefore went on the stage in Athens and performed the song “Follow My Heart”. The song was in four languages, and was one place short of making it to the final night!

We all here at escXtra would like to send them wonderful birthday wishes!
