Eurovision Trivia: The Weekly Quiz, Bilal to Darude in the Semi Draw

It’s been quite a week in the world of Eurovision. There have been several artist announcements, we now have 4 songs made public including two from France and Spain, and the semi-final draw has been made. Let’s have some questions about that, trivia from Bilal to Darude, from Eurovision: You Decide to the mountains of Austria, where singer Paenda hails from to the African lake that the Czech band have named themselves after. And perhaps most importantly, about the semi-final draw that is so important in setting the stage for the huge conversation that is which countries will qualify for the Grand Final.

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.

Paenda was revealed to be the Austrian entrant this week. What colour hair does she have (no picture given)
