Fionnuala Sherry, 56

In 1995, violinist Fionnuala Sherry represented Norway at the Eurovision Song Contest in Dublin. Being Irish, she was the fourth Irish artist to win the contest on home ground. She was however the first to win it for another country. Fionnuala won Eurovision as part of the group Secret Garden. Secret Garden is really a duo, consisting of Fionnuala Sherry and Rolf Løvland, but for Eurovision a vocalist and a harpist were added to the lineup. Their “Nocturne” is to this day the only predominantly instrumental Eurovision winner.

Snæbjörn, 41

Snæbjörn Ragnarsson represented Iceland at the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen. He did so as member of the band Pollapönk. Snæbjörn is not a regular member of the band, but joins them for live performances when he has the time. He is better known as bassplayer, singer and lyricist of the wonderful viking metal band Skálmöld. Pollapönk finished 15th in the grand final with their entry “No Prejudice”, thus achieving a very “Icelandic result”.

Tina Karol, 34

Tina Karol represented Ukraine at the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest in Athens. She finished in an impressive 7th place with her “Show Me You Love”. In the national final however, the song was called “I Am Your Queen“, but it was reworked before going to Greece
