Eurovision Trivia: The Calm Before… That Night

We’re over halfway through National Final season and we still don’t yet have half the entries. Eurovision fans, it’s time to prepare. For the next 2-3 weeks will have songs coming from left and right as all the national finals finish and those countries who’ve chosen to internally select will reveal their choices… at the eleventh hour if they can.

Some of the more peripheral nations chose this weekend though, so prepare for trivia from Latvia, Slovenia, Croatia and Romania, as their entries join the lineup of songs we know.

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.
