THE LAST EPISODE OF R S G SERIES ON THE SONGS FROM THE EUROVISION SONG CONTEST

The 13th episode started at 18.16 on Sunday 24 September. Elsje van Jaarsveld presented it while Ilse Schurmann wrote the text and produced the show. Technical production is by Wihan Nel. Due to the world cup rugby match between South Africa and Scotland on Sunday 10 September the 11th episode fell by the wayside and so although this should have been episode 13, it is episode 12. Sadly, the last one in the series. Continue reading THE LAST EPISODE OF R S G SERIES ON THE SONGS FROM THE EUROVISION SONG CONTEST

EUROVISION CONVENTION – BIANCA SHOMBURG

It is now TIME to look at the 4th artist who will perform at the Eurovision convention in Frankfurt/Main, Germany.

It is BIANCA SHOMBURG who represented Germany at the 1997 Eurovision song contest with the Ralph Siegel and Bernd Meinunger song ZEIT. The English version is called TIME. So Bianca sang about Time long before Belarus had someone in 2015 and Ukraine someone in 2017 singing about TIME. Bianca sounds quite like Celine Dion and it is a pity we have not heard a lot from her in recent years. Maybe she will turn back the time in Frankfurt and sings some fantastic new songs.

EUROVISION CONVENTION – LOU

We move to the second artist who will appear at the Eurovision convention in Frankfurt/Main, Germany.

Lou is the stage name of Louise Hoffner, a German pop singer.

She participated in the 2001 Eurovision national finals, coming in third place with HAPPY BIRTHDAY PARTY. Shortly before Christmas 2002, composer Ralph Siegel asked her if she would be interested in competing in the national finals again with “Let’s Get Happy”, a song he had written with lyricist Bernd Meinunger. Lou won the German 2003 finals and represented Germany at the Eurovision Song Contest 2003 in Riga where she came in 11th place. 

Hopefully she will sing these two songs in Frankfurt.
