Jeronimas Milius is normally the lead singer in a heavy metal band so for some he was a surprisingly choise to sing the opera kind song Nomads in the Night that represented Lithuania at the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest.
Simon Mathew won a bit unexpectly the Danish final, but having previously won both a musical talent show and a dancing program maybe we shouldn't be surprised if he does well in Belgrade as well with the song called All Night Long.
Ruslan Alehno became famous after winning the local edition of Pop Idol and in 2008 it brought him to Belgrade with the song called Hasta la Vista. He didn't manage to qualify for the Eurovision Song Contest final.
Paolo Meneguzzi will be representing Switzerland with the song Era Stupendo in Belgrade. He has been chosen internal and didn't have to go through any national final. It is the first time since 2000 that Switzerland participates with a song in Italian.
