Sandra Studer/Sandra Simó, 50

Switzerland picked Sandra to go on their behalf to Eurovision in 1991. Therefore she went with the italian song, “Canzone Per Te to”, to Rome. The song did well, that is it finished in 5th place. She has then been connected with Eurovision both as a host for national finals and as provided commintary for the german speaking in Switzerland.

Natasha St-Pier, 38

France selected the Canadian singer Natasha to be there representative at Eurovision in 2001. Thus she went on the stage in Copenhagen, Denmark with her power ballad “Je n’ai que mon âme”. St-Pier did really well and received 142 points, which means she placed 4th.

Poli Genova, 32

Like mention at the beginning one the three birthday girls represented her country two time. Bulgaria chose Poli Genova go on their behalf in 2011 and again in 2017. Her first entry was “Na inat“, which she performed in Dusseldorf, Germany. Unfortunately for her the song did not managed to advance the final.

Poli got a second chance at Eurovision in 2016, where she performed the song “If Love Was a Crime”. This entry did really well, not only did it reach the final but finished in the top 5. That is she got 307 points which gave her the 4th place. What a  great comeback!
