An Xtra Happy Birthday; 17 July!

Greetings to Poland and Estonia!

Yesterday on 16th of July, two Eurovision artist celebrated their birthday. Today there are also two Eurovision singers who celebrate their birthdays, two birthday girls! One of them has represented her country, Poland, twice at Eurovision. Help us shout a big “Congratulations!” to Justyna Majkowska!

Justyna Majkowska, 40

Justyna Majkowska represented Poland at both the 2003 and 2006 Eurovision Song Contests. Both times she did so as part of the group Ich Troje. During their firts attempt, in Riga, they performed the song
“Keine Grenzen – Żadnych granic”, a song that has lyrics in German, Polish and Russian. They finished in a very well deserved, though kind of surprising, 7th place. Three years later, in Athens, they returned with the song “Follow My Heart“. Unlike last time, however, they didn’t finish top 10 this year. Actually, they didn’t even finish top 10 in the semi-final. They ended in 11th place, thus *just* missing out on the last ticket to the grand final.

Daana Ots, 31

Daana represented Estonia at the 2005 Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv. SHe did so as part of the all girl group Suntribe. They performed their song “Let’s Get Loud”, which was one of the pre-contest fan favorites. However, they finished in 20th place in the semi-final, thus failing to qualify for the grand final.

All of us here at escXtra would like to wish these two ladies the best on their special day!
