One of my favourite moments from back in Vienna 2015, was seeing just how well contestants Mans Zelmerlow (Sweden) & Guy Sebastian (Australia) got on together during that week. Then this great freindship even transcended onto the Eurovision scoreboard, when both countries gave each other 12 points. There was even talk of a future duet between Mans and Guy, that would be special. This has got me thinking how many times has two stars of the past Eurovision Song Contests have actually got together to make a duet? besides covering a Eurovision entry, itself.
So I did some searching around and came up with my own
Top 10 Eurovision artists duets.
1. Maria Haukaas Storeng & Måns Zelmerlöw- ‘Precious to Me’
2. Christer Björkman & Shirley Clamp- La Vie/ This is My Life
3. Agnetha Faltskog & Tomas Ledin- Never Again
4. Johnny Logan & Nicole – No One Makes Love like You/Niemand liebt so wie du
(composed by Ralph Siegel and Bernd Meinunger)
5. Elisabeth Andreassen & Tor Endresen- All over the World (MGP 15)
6. Olivia Newton-John & Cliff Richard- Suddenly (From Xanadu movie)
7. Timoteij Feat Alexander Rybak-Vända Med Vinden
8. Malena Ernman & Sarah Dawn Finer – Sancta Lucia (2013)
9. Jan Johansen & Jill Johnson- Let it be me
10. Anita Skorgan Med Jahn Teigen- Friendly
If you know of some other Eurovision duets, let us know in the comments,
Footnote: When putting this Top 10 together I realised that just one artist that actually technically should not be on the list, as they have not appeared on a Eurovision Song Contest stage, Who is that?
After weeks of agonising over what the Australian song to be sung by Guy Sebastian would be like, the overwhelming consensus among Eurovision fans here in Australia is that is very good.
The song was officially launched by SBS on their national evening news bulletin and follow-up show ‘The Feed’. Titled ‘Tonight Again’, the song has quite a contemporary R&B sound, up-beat and funky. There is a strong brass element and it is supported by excellent back-up singers.
Many thought the song would be taken from his current album ‘Madness’ and likely to be a ballad. But Guy has proven us all wrong and written something completely new in just under a week. And what’s more, he’s recorded a video clip to support it.
Guy mentioned in the news broadcast that he wanted the song to be fun and went on say “it is about moments in life you do not want to end and you could live those moments every day”.
Since the release, the level of opinion expressed on various Facebook pages, media outlets and Twitter has been huge. Let’s hope everyone here in Australia and around the world gets right behind Guy and his song Tonight Again.
