Guess who? Part II

Four more acts.  Do you recognise them? Do you like them?

NUMBER ONE: As far as I know there’s only one Eurovision song with a dancing gorilla.

NUMBER TWO: My, hasn’t she changed over the years!

NUMBER THREE: One of my all-time favs. Outrageously happy.

Catch you round!

Guess who?

Last year I went to Australia Decides on the Gold Coast.

This was a new event for Australia: it simply followed the European model where various acts perform and one is chosen to represent Australia at Eurovision 2019. When I got home I made some ‘art’ – representations of the acts I liked with coloured card but I didn’t do much with them.  This year, with a big gap where Eurovision won’t be happening and lock downs in place,  I’ve taken the opportunity to create more ‘art’. Some evenings I put on a classic Eurovision DVD from a random year and make little paper works of some of the most iconic performances. You don’t need to be a Eurovision tragic to pick many of these but it helps to know a little bit about Eurovision.

So who are these acts? Do you know? Do you like them?

NUMBER 1: Recognise her? One of my all time favs. Well deserved second place.

NUMBER 2: Originality, moody, quality vocals: you often don’t get all three in Eurovision.

NUMBER 3: You’ll have to think back for this one, but totally iconic, don’t you think?

NUMBER 4: Here’s a challenge. Might need a clue or two for this one.

Hope you enjoy them! More to come.
