Kyiv 2005 (19.09.20)

Добрий вечір, Європо! This week we visit Kyiv 2005, after Ukraine won the contest after only their second attempt. Originally, they’d had a three year plan to triumph, so Ruslana’s victory in Istanbul was a real feat. And notching up win before Russia made the achievement even sweet. Of course, Ukranian-Russian relations play heavily in […]

Gothenburg 1985 (15.08.20)

God kväll, Europa! We’re living out our neon and pastel fantasies in Gothenburg 1985 with thanks to SVT for allowing the EBU to screen this contest for the first time in 35 years. Lill Lindfors is our excellent host for this Scandi-extravaganza – proving once more than Swedes know how to do light entertainment without […]

Jerusalem 1999 (18.07.20)

אירופה טובה, ערב Shalom! It’s time for the last Eurovision of the millennium as we take a trip to Jerusalem 1999! Thank you KAN for helping out with this old IBA contest. As you’ll see at the start, the hosts make a great deal about the fact that this year will be decided 100% by […]

COPENHAGEN 2014 (27.06.20)

God aften, Europa! What a season finale! We visited Copenhagen 2014 for the final weekly #EurovisionAgain, and none other than the fabulous Conchita Wurst introduced it for us. Probably my overall favourite Eurovision of all time – aside from the high quality of songs, the stage is epic, the production sublime, and one of the […]

Belgrade 2008 (20.06.20)

Добро веце, Европа! We’re off to Belgrade in sunny Serbia for the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest! One of my personal favourites, this contest has it all – and when I say “has it all” I mean “has a load of iconic pop girlies”. Originally won by Dima Bilan after he threw an ice rink the […]

Dublin 1988 (13.06.20)

Tráthnóna maith, an Eoraip! We’re heading back to Dublin for the 33rd Eurovision Song Contest held in 1988. This edition of #EurovisionAgain was introduced by Danish act Kirsten Siggard who herself has a very special guest. 1988 is an iconic show which coincides with the 1,000th anniversary of the founding of Ireland’s capital city. Tonight […]

Lisbon 2018 (06.06.20)

Boa noite, Europa! Pop out the pastel de natas – we’re jogging back a couple of months to the 63rd Eurovision Song Contest: Lisbon 2018! We were joined by the wonderful UK entry SuRie, who shared her experiences of the night (and what a night she had!) SuRie put together a fascinating Twitter thread which […]

Rome 1991 (30.05.20)

Buona sera, europa! We’re off to Rome for the 36th Eurovision Song Contest. Big thanks to RAI for allowing the stream this one for the first time in full since its broadcast. It was available for a week after the event, and we’re sure this fresh copy has made its way onto a YouTube channel […]

Riga 2003 (23.05.20)

Labvakar, Eiropa! This week we visit Riga 2003 for the 48th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest! Brought to us by Latvijas Televīzija (thanks for lending us the show), this would be the second consecutive Baltics Eurovision and the last before the 2004 brand and copyright streamlining, plus the introduction of a semi final. t.A.T.u […]
