The Xtra Eurovision Advent Calendar 2019; part 2

The Xtra Eurovision Advent Calendar 2019; part 2

It’s December! Meaning it’s time to dig into the Christmas catalogue of Eurovision artists young and old! Every day from now until Christmas Eve we will bring you a Christmas song performed by Eurovision artists from all corners of the Euroverse, in our advent calendar, so make sure you don’t miss any of them! 7 December To start off part 2 of our calendar; who better than the Angel of the Balkans, Tose Proeski? He didn’t sing many Christmas songs, but on a snowy Saturday dashing through the snow sounds like a fine idea, so “Jingle Bells” it is! This is the only live clip of it, so we’re breaking our own rule today; here’s the studio version of the whole thing. Tose represented Macedonia in the 2004 Eurovison Song Contest, giving his country a 14th place, which still is their fourth best result. He performed “Life“, which might be best remembered by the unusual beat and the creative staging. His voice, though…of an angel.

Eurovision Trivia: So You Think You Know… United Kingdom

🇸🇪 Eurovision Trivia: So You Think You Know… Sweden

🇸🇪 Eurovision Trivia: So You Think You Know… Sweden

I suspect there have been many people waiting a while for a Swedish trivia quiz. Sweden is one of those countries in the Eurovision fandom that people only seem to have two opinions on. Either they are easily the greatest country, serving up every year a quality pop song and providing an excellent national final process besides. Or they are an overrated blight on Eurovision, chief among the countries turning it into a pop contest rather than the national traditions it should show. And as very often happens when people say there are only two opinions for rhetorical flourish, I fall somewhere in the middle of that. There are great Swedish entries and Swedish entries that are boring because we’ve seen it so many times before. There is no doubt that Sweden has had a huge impact on the contest. It is perhaps THE most successful nation, with the second-most wins, a matter of when, not if, they will overtake Ireland, and if my stats are correct, the record holder for most points gained all-time. And so many of these entries have left a huge mark on the Eurovision fandom that I hope this week’s quiz will be a treat …
