As a writer with the Eurovision disposition it was only inevitable that I should find myself merging these two interests. If it wasn't Sonia singing "Better the Devil You Know" that got me hooked on Eurovision, then it was the Gina G banger "Just a Little Bit". The 90's is where it all started for me, who knows where I'll end up!

  1. Public didn’t vote her first, neither did Juries. I wanted Barbara or Jimmy P to win, she was a meh option – I didn’t remember all the other songs apart from Barbara and Jimmy and a tiny bit of this.
