An Xtra Happy Birthday; June 20

An Xtra Happy Birthday; June 20

We only have one birthday to celebrate today, but what a birthday it is!! Today’s birthday boy took part in Eurovision last year, in 2016, and he was a huge fan favorite ahead of the contest, and on the night it turned out he had quite a bit of support both from the juries *and* the televoters as well.  We are of course talking about the one and only Amir, who represented France with the up-tempo, fun and singalong friendly “J’ai cherché”. He finished 6th with more than 250 points. Today we celebrate his 33rd birthday, and we hope you will all join in the shouts of “congratulations” and “happy birthday” in his direction!

We send today’s birthday wishes to two lovely ladies; one is from Estonia, the other from the Netherlands. One of them participated back in 2005, when the contest was last hosted in Kyiv, while the other represented her country as recently as 2014.  Glennis Grace performed the Dutch entry, “My Impossible Dream”, which is a big, powerful ballad, in 2005. She finished 15th in the semi final, meaning she did not qualify for the grand final. Today she celebrates her 39th birthday! Tanja, who turns 34 today, represented Estonia in the 2014 Eurovision in Copenhagen. Like Glennis, she failed to qualify for the grand final, finishing 12th in her semifinal with her entry “Amazing”. All of us here at escXtra wish Glennis and Tanja the very best of birthdays!

June 17th seems to be a great day for Eurovision artists, as we have a total of FOUR birthdays to celebrate today! And since beauty is very much in the eyes of the beholder, we’ll let age decide the order in which we will present the birthday boys and girl! The entire Euroverse became quite fired up when news that the world famous boyband Blue was going to represent the United Kingdom in 2011 appeared. Their song “I Can” also became quite popular, and they were among the pre-contest favorites. Their live vocals left a bit to be desired, and they finished 11th on the night. Lee Ryan, the youngest memeber of the group celebrates his 34th birthday today! Andrea Demirovic, who represented Montenegro in the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest in Moscow, turns 32 today!! She sang about wanting someone out of her life; perhaps the points thought she was refering to them? She *just* failed to qualify for the grand final, finishing 11th in her semi. For Anzej Dezan, today marks the big 30! He came into the Euroverse in 2006, when he represented Slovenia with the song “Mr.Nobody”. He failed to qualify for the final, however, finishing 16th …

Today’s birthday girl is one of the few Eurovision participants, not to mention the first, to graduate from the junior contest. She represented her country in the 2007 Junior Eurovision Song Contest, finishing in a very impressive 3rd place. Six years later she returned to the Eurovision stage as part of a trio, only to win…the Barbara Dex award! Yes, we are talking about Nevena Bozovic, the “golden girl” (in the national final) of Moje 3, who represented Serbia at Eurovision in Malmö in 2013. They failed to qualify, a fact some blame on their new outfits… However, today we are here to congratulate Nevena as she turns 23! An Xtra Happy Birthday from all of us here at escXtra!

Today’s birthday boy is truly one of a kind! When he participated in Eurovision Song Contest he was the first artist to “sing”, on a Eurovision stage, that he didn’t really want to do well in the contest, he considers nudism to be good for rheumatism and that his only rule is to always stay cool like a swimming pool… And he brought with him on stage Eurovision’s first ever TROJAN DONKEY!!! Yes, we are of course talking of none other than the legendary Rambo Amadeus, who represented Montenegro in the 2012 Eurovision in Baku. He finished 15th in the first semi final with his entry “Euro Neuro”, and today is his 54th birthday! All of us here at escXtra wish Rambo Amadeus an Xtra Happy Birthday!

Today we have two Eurovision birthdays to celebrate! One is a recent winner who turns 31, the other is one of this year’s participants who celebrates her 28th birthday!  Lest’s start by wishing Sweden’s most recent Eurovision winner Måns Zelmerlöv an Xtra happy 31st! Måns is the reason why all the children of the Euroverse went to Stockholm last May, after his victory with “Heroes” in Vienna in 2015. We also send our warmest congratulations to 2017’s Azeri entrant, Dihaj, who turns 28 today! Dihaj finished 14th with her song “Skeletons” after treating us to one of the more theatrical performances we have seen in a while. All of us here at escXtra wish both Måns and Dihaj an Xtra happy birthday!

So, the weekend is over, but that doesn’t mean there’s no reason for some celebrating! Today our congratulations go to the wonderful Amandine Bourgeois on her 38th birthday! Amandine represented France in the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö, with the song L’enfer et moi. She opened the show, and despite delivering a flawless performance, she only finished 23rd.

On this beautiful Sunday evening all of us here at ESCXTRA want to send our warmest congratulations to Pernilla Karlsson on her 27th birthday!  Pernilla being interviewed by Liam in Baku! Pernilla represented Finland in the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest in Baku, with the song “När jag blundar”. This was only the second time the Finnish entry was performed in Swedish. The first time was “Fri?” back in 1990, which was, coincidentally the year Pernilla was born! Unfortunately Pernilla and “När jag blundar” failed to qualify for the final, after finishing 12th in the first semi final.

A wonderful voice. From a wonderful Eurovision year. Performing a wonderful Christmas song. In a wonderful language. Oh, and he’s quite wonderful looking too… Sergio Dalma represented Spain in the 1991 Eurovision Song Contest in Rome. He performed “Bailar Pegados”, finishing 4th, with a 119 points.
