Did You Know?


Belgium were going to be represented by Nicole & Hugo with the song "Goeiermorgen, morgen" ("Good Morning, Morning"). They even recorded the video-clip for the song, as rules asked from any country. However, just weeks before the contest, Nicole became ill with jaundice and couldn't attend the competition. Her husband Hugo withdrew with her and new singers had to be called in extremis to perform the song. Jacques Raymond, who had already represented Belgium in 1963, and Lily Castel were chosen to perform the same song, "Goeiermorgen, morgen", in Dublin, though they never recorded the song. Nicole & Hugo would eventually represent Belgium two years later, in 1973. See more »


There were technical issues with the sound during the evening. Spanish singer Karina started her song with her microphone switched off and the first verse wasn't heard at all. The same happened with the Dutch singer, with the aggravating circumstance that when they switched the microphone on, again without the first verse heard at all, there was a long and loud screeching sound that startled chorus musicians on the background, and the whole first strophe from the singer, who kept on performing as if nothing was happening, was barely heard behind that sound, until they fixed it.

Probably the Best ESC ever!!!!!!!!
8 February 2010 | by mistymountainSee all my reviews

For those of you who aren't familiar with the Eurovision Song Contest, it's like the music version of the Olympics, only in Europe. Each contest opens and closes with the traditional theme song. Each participating country has a national song contest and the winner goes on to compete in the ESC. This year really stands out because there were a lot of good singers here. My only disappointment was that Italy's Massimo Ranieri, who was favored to win ended up in 5th place. The winner, Severine, representing Monaco, was born in France, and she'd NEVER even been to Monaco. I think that the participating countries should send someone who's actually a citizen of that country. But then, again, in 1988, you had Celine Dion win the ESC representing Switzerland, and she's not even European, but French Canadian. Anyways, other honorable mentions go to Austria's Marianne Mendt for her jazzy song, Musik, even though it failed to impress the judges, and Sweden's Family Four, with their very folksy song, Vita Vidder.
