The Scoop

Johnny Logan and Linda Martin added to the line-up of ‘Het Grote Songfestivalfeest’

Now that the next Eurovision will take place in The Netherlands, the Dutchies . On 15 December they are organizing a huge Eurovision party. Around 30 ex-Eurovision artists will perform in Amsterdam’s Ziggo Dome. You don’t want to miss that party, right?

Irish power

On Friday, November 22, the organizers of the Grote Songfestivalfeest announced two new names for the poster. Both names are from Ireland. We are talking about Linda Martin, who won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1992 with “Why Me” and the one and only Mister Eurovision Johnny Logan! He is still the only one who managed to win the Eurovision twice, in 1980 with “What’s Another Year” and seven years later with “Hold Me Now.” With this the poster counts no fewer than 23 winners and with this they break the record of 1981. Then the Red Cross organized a Eurovision party in Oslo and 21 winners performed.
