When the annuly Norwegian Christmas tour Stille Natt Hellige Natt kicks off on the 27th of November it will be with three former Eurovision Song Contest participants involved, two of them winners. Tor Endresen, Elisabeth Andreassen and Alexander Rybak will bring the Norwegian into the right spirit.
With three widely diverse performers such as Bettan, Alexander Rybak and Didrik Solli-Tangen on stage, something for practically every taste is almost guaranteed. The three artists combine their styles and talent to bring concertgoers a unique experience in July.
Former Icelandic participant Sigga Beinteinsdóttir turns fifty later this month and the occasion will apparently not go unnoticed in her native Iceland, with a special celebtraion planned for the artist.
There were a lot of things that people didn’t predict were going to happen before the curtain went up on the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest. Few thought Ireland would claim its third victory with the two rock'n'roll kids and nearly bankrupt RTÉ. And even fewer thought that Riverdance would become one of the biggest shows in the world.
The most famous Eurovision interval act is widely agreed to be Riverdance from the 1994 contest. The lead male role in that original line-up was Michael Flatley who has since shot to fame and amassed a small fortune from his own show 'Lord of the Dance'.
Dutch pop star Gerard Joling, who represented the Netherlands in the 1988 Eurovision Song Contest, has been through an emergency operation that delayed the presentation of his new album and a part in a film. He is in recovery now and the new album is ready to hit the stores as well as the charts.
