The heroes and heroines of The Eurovision Song Contest take the stage every year. While it’s rare for the lead singers to return, look to the wings and you’ll see the backing singers. Once they’ve had a taste of the experience, they’re ready to step up and fly the flag for their country once more. Samantha Ross investigates the bridesmaids heading for the musical altar.
Well, it was a rather rambuctious festive period, so slightly later than planned, we’ve brought together the thoughts of the ESC Insight team, and some of our contributors from the world of the Song Contest to talk about the musical moments of the last year.
Belarus and Albania take the song count to five, we have our three hosts, Vienna has a single Eurovision tram, and some music from Ud Juergens for our final podcast of the calendar year.
