Eurovision Trivia: Sanremo rises in the wake of Super Saturday

The great event that is the Swedish national final of Melodifestivalen started on Saturday, a large number of Eurovision national finals across the continent are shedding a large amount of their hopefuls as they completed their final lineups on Saturday. The ones that have yet to start have made the headlines due to withdrawals and in between all of that, the long, the epic, the one of a kind Sanremo Musical Festival started last night. Sanremo trivia time, anyone? I can’t assume anyone is into that, bu there are some questions for those fans here. It’s the height of national final season, where it all gets a bit crazy. Perfect for question making.

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.
