The songs and running order for the 33rd edition of the OGAE Second Chance Song Contest, has officially been revealed. The Italian fan club is organising this year’s contest after the country’s victory in 2018, with Annalisa’s “Il mondo prima di te”.
Since 1987, the OGAE Second Chance Contest has been selecting songs that didn’t make it through the national final season. Each country’s official fan club puts forward a song to represent it at the annual competition that is organised by the previous year’s winning fan club. OGAE fan clubs then vote and deliver their results, exactly like the Eurovision Song Contest.
This year’s selected songs and running order is as follows:
|1||Croatia: Lorena – Tower of Babylon|
