Four Birthday Stars today, two gentlemen and two ladies. Out of these four two of them one the Contest. Lulu shared here victory with 3 other countries but Louise Herrey shared it with his two brothers.

Gianni Mascolo, 78

Lulu, 70

United Kingdom selected Lulu to perform in 1969 to perform at Eurovision in Madrid, Spain. Her song “Boom Bang A Bang” got 19 points. Which meant that it tied in first place with three other countries! Therefore UK, Netherlands, Spain and France all won that year.

Louis Herrey, 52

Sweden selected the three Herrey brothers to compete at Eurovision in 1984. The song title is “Diggiloo Diggiley” and followed some earlier winners pattern, like Lulu’s, in that way it had a catchy nonsensical title. Weather it was that or just their charm, the song got 145 points. Thus winning the song contest.

Raquel del Rosario, 36

Spain picked the band “El Sueño De Morfe” to represent them in Malmö Sweden in 2013. Raquel is the lead singer of that band. Since Spain was automatically at the final, they performed 5th on stage. However she was not as fortunate as the Lulu and Louis Herrey, since the song finished second to last at the final.
