It’s time for a prop at Oneurope. You can’t beat them. They just give a song that edge. Especially if you’re singing in a language only a few million people speak. This particular prop gets partially destroyed during the song. What’s that you cry? Wanton destruction on a hallowed Eurovision stage? How awful.
Actually, it’s to do with the song. Birthday girl Raquel Rastenni sang about tearing a page out of her diary, so on stage she did just that. Inspired is one word for it. Sadly Ms Rastenni died in 1998, just before her 83rd birthday.
Raquel would have been 102 today.
