Eurovision Trivia: So You Think You Know… Latvia

Eurovision Trivia: So You Think You Know… Latvia

You fancy yourself a Eurovision master? So you think you know… Latvia? Our country-specific series is returning for the Eurovision off-season, covering the entire history of countries at Eurovision. For Latvia, this means a much shorter history than that of Italy last week, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t interesting trivia, because there absolutely is. Latvia may not be the most successful country in Eurovision, but rarely is a Latvian entry a song where there is nothing to talk about, whether it’s about their unusual lyrics, their stage costumes or their extreme (in both good and bad) results placings. So You Think You Know… is a series that will arrive each Wednesday, each time focusing on a new active Eurovision country. We are continuing alphabetically and so Lithuania will be next. In the meantime, how well do you know Latvia? To play last week’s quiz from Italy, please go here.

A duck egg for Easter: Nil points at the Eurovision Song Contest

A duck egg for Easter: Nil points at the Eurovision Song Contest

The past couple of years the search for eggs at the Eurovision Song Contest has been rather difficult. It’s not easy to achieve zero points on the total scoreboard. However, during Easter time we at ESCXTRA.com love to dive into the history of duck eggs at the contest. Time for a journey through history! Click through the pages below to pass through the history books of Eurovision! Double-yolk for the Netherlands The first time we ever saw nil points at the Eurovision Song Contest was in 1962. And the Gods of Zero didn’t start lightly: Four countries went home without a point from Villa Louvigny in Luxembourg. One of those four acts was De Spelbrekers from The Netherlands. Their song “Katinka”, about keeping a close eye at a girl they see every single morning. Despite going home with nil points, the song achieved a legendary status in its home country. This was increased when De Kleinkeinder covered the song for the carnaval period and turned it into a song about eating sausages… The Dutch misfortune at the contest didn’t stop there. A year later, Annie Palmen represented her country with “Een Speeldoos”. Once again Europe didn’t quite rate the entry …
