Gali Atari, 65

Gali Atari took part at Eurovision for Israel along with the band Milk and Honey. They performed in their home country in 1979, the song is called “Hallelujah”. They did very well and won the contest, therefore giving Israel Eurovision victory two years in a row.

Barbara Berta, 55 

Switzerland decided to let Barbara represent them in 1997. Therefore she sang “Dentro di me” in Dublin, which she composed herself. The song placed 22nd out of 25 entries.
