Ruth Jacott, 58
Netherlands decided to let Ruth perform their Eurovision entry in 1993. The entry “Vrede” was a favorite to win. Even though it did not win it did well and Ruth placed 5th at the Contest.
Elitsa Todorova, 41
Elitsa is a Bulgerian folk singer and sings in her own language. She and Stoyans have performed two times for Bulgaria! First of all they sang in 2007 with the song “Water” and did a great job in Helsinki. After advancing from the semi final, it made it all the way up to 5th place! Secondly they performed in Malmo in 2013 with a song called “Samo Shampioni”. However this time they failed to make it to the final.
Tatiana Okupnik, 40
Poland selected the band Blue Cafe to be their act at Eurovision in 2004. Tatiana was the lead singer of that band. Therefore they song “Love Song” at the final in Istanbul. The song got 27 points, that means it ended in 22th place out of 24 countries.
Poland had been on brake from Eurovison since 2012 and entered again in 2014. Donatan and Cleo represented Poland in Copenhagen. The song is called “My slowianie”. Even though Donatan did not actually go on the stage, we will let it pass. After all it´s his birthday. The performance was quite interesting and seemed to appeal to the public! It qualified from the semi final and advanced to the final. Despite that the public placed the song 5th, the jury was not so impressed. Letting “My Slowiane” end up in 14th place.
Stevan Faddy, 32
Stevan represented Montenegro in 2007 in Helsinki, after a huge victory at MontenegroSong 2007. His rock song “Adje Kroci” was the first act of Montenegro in Eurovision after it independence. Unfortunately it came short of reaching to the final.
All of us here at escXtra wish all of this week’s Eurvision birthday boys and girls the happiest of celebrations!
