From the quiz author on the most recent prior quiz: Many thanks to those of you who played my quiz on Eurovision in the 2010s, published on New Year. I did something I do not usually do, but may do in the future for major quizzes. I included a message encouraging Twitter users who got 100% on the quiz to message me with a screenshot. While accepting that this is not iron-clad proof evidence that they got it on the first try, but they would not have known it was there (and a certain question was through one of my mistakes, worded wrongly, making it …

Eurovision Trivia: So You Think You Know… Switzerland

Eurovision Trivia: So You Think You Know… Switzerland

Switzerland are in many ways the first country of Eurovision. They weren’t only the winners of the first ever contest, they also hosted it in Lugano, all the way back in 1956.

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

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

Spain is a notably different country in Eurovision to most of the rest. They are lucky enough to be part of the Big 5, so they can experiment. Fiercely proud of their musical tradition, we have seen them be the continent’s token appreciator for Latin music, as one would expect. This sometimes gets them a rough ride, they haven’t cracked the top 20 of the final since 2014 – and you think the British have had it rough. But with one of the longest histories in the contest, there’s enough to go on for questions, let’s take it away with our Spanish trivia quiz! So You Think You Know… is a series that will arrive each Wednesday, each time focusing on a new active Eurovision country. We move alphabetically so the next quiz will be the immortal Sweden. In the meantime, enjoy our trivia quiz on Spain! [wp_quiz id=”121838″]
🇸🇮 Eurovision Trivia: So You Think You Know… Slovenia

🇸🇮 Eurovision Trivia: So You Think You Know… Slovenia

If I were to choose a theme for a Slovenian trivia quiz, it’d be similar to Slovenia’s persona in Eurovision. And that is, the hipster nation that produces consistently awesome and well-appreciated songs among the fandom but often fails to reach a wider audience. Perhaps that’s what this week’s quiz is, or perhaps it’ll be shared loads and become the most successful of the quiz series. You decide. But it’s a rare year, and it almost wouldn’t be Eurovision, without the Slovenian entry being undoubtedly incredibly good and it ending up at a much lower position than it deserves and often, not making it to the final. It’s almost as much of a tradition as Greece <-> Cyprus for me. As such there’s a lot of trivia that I’ve noticed about Slovenian entries and I’m going to ask you about. Check them out below! So You Think You Know… is a series that will arrive each Wednesday, each time focusing on a new active Eurovision country. We move alphabetically so the next quiz will be the grand old Spain.
