An Xtra Happy Birthday; Week 5

February 2nd

Today we have three Eurovision Artist that celebrate their birthday. Including one winner!

Dana International, 47

Dana International represented Israel at both the 1998 and 2011 Eurovision Song Contests. In Birmingham in 1998 she won the contest with the song “Diva”, just six points ahead of the UK entry “Where Are You?”. When she returned in 2011, however, she didn’t have the same success. In the second semi-final, she finished in 15th place out of 19, thus not qualifying for the final with her “Ding Dong“.

Jessica represented Germany at the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest in Belgrade. She did so as part of the girl group No Angels. They performed the song “Disappear”, finishing in a rather disappointing 23rd place out of 25.
