Eurovision Trivia: The Weekly Quiz, from Saara Aalto to Miki

Let’s get on the road for Eurovision weekly trivia as we look back at the first truly busy weekend of the Eurovision 2019 National Final season. There was a Hungarian A Dal heat, a Destination Eurovision semi-final from France, announcements from Ukraine and Sweden that are very interesting, and everyone’s favourite X Factor runner up Saara is keeping very busy in our press. So let’s get to some questions about them!

Every question in this quiz is related to ESCXtra articles published during the last week. Maybe also a few days either side. Perhaps it was something being reported, maybe it about information that our writers left in the article. Very occasionally it’ll require a little bit of Eurovision knowledge outside of that. The majority of the answers will have been on this website very recently. 

In any case, I hope you’ll join us and have an attempt at the very latest in Eurovision trivia. It’ll also serve as a useful reminder of the headlines you have been reading this week.

Saara Aalto revealed this week that she turned down the UK's offer to take part in Eurovision. Which TV show is she currently involved with?

Correct! Wrong!

She's currently on ITV skating away! She said she needed a break before she did anything to return to Eurovision.

How many English songs made it through the first heat of Hungary's A Dal?

Correct! Wrong!

The three English entries in the ten-song heat finished in 8th, 9th, and 10th respectively. The rest of the songs were in Hungarian. Looks like Hungary has an appetite for their own language this year!

Miki's La Venda is the second song that we've heard for this year's Eurovision as Spain selected on Saturday, do you remember the first country to show us their song?

Correct! Wrong!

Almost a month ago now, showing how much of an outlier the Albanians are, but we love them for it.

Where did Miki, our newest addition to the Eurovision roster, finish in Operacíon Triunfo, the reality show that the Spanish Eurovision hopefuls are taken from?

Correct! Wrong!

The winner of Operacíon Triunfo, Famous, didn't come close to winning the ticket to Eurovision. It must have been a very differing situation. This is the method, using this show to find their artists, that the Spanish currently favour.

Which Sammarinese former entrant announced that they would be representing the microstate again in 2019?

Correct! Wrong!

What is the name of the newly revealed Dutch entrant?

Correct! Wrong!

Douwe Bob of course represented Netherlands a couple of years ago. The other two are made up and any relation to real or fictional people is coincidental.

Which Ukrainian artist suddenly withdrew from Vidbir 2019?

Correct! Wrong!

Tayanna is being replaced by Maruv. She wanted to give other artists a chance to compete for Ukraine and is focusing on her own music.

Which of these ISN'T a headline about Saara Aalto that ESCXtra have reported on in the last seven days?

Correct! Wrong!

It's been a busy week for Saara in rumours and little tidbits revealing themselves.

What change to the Melodifestivalen app vote have SVT made?

Correct! Wrong!

It's an interesting change and it's yet to be seen how it will affect the Melodifestivalen results.

Which of these acts made it through Saturday's Destination Eurovision semifinal in France?

Correct! Wrong!
