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.
Who won Sanremo 2019, getting offered the chance to go to Eurovision?

Kobi Merimi has just won The Next Star for Israel, meaning he will be their artist at this year's Eurovision. How many songs did he sing on the final night of The Next Star?
2 rounds for this show, one in a duel against another contestant, and then one song with just the final three going against each other. Looking up how the four contestants got to the final show is not recommended for those with a fear of spreadsheets.
Polish popstar Margaret failed to repeat her success last year by failing to progress at all from the Melodifestivalen heat, despite performing last. This is quite unusual. When was the last time an act performing last in a Melodifestivalen heat did not progress further in the competition?
