Everyone loves a trier, and no-one has tried more than Portugal. Not even the sniff of a victory in 326 attempts. Just a look through the back catalogue will give you some idea. But then again, some should have done better then they did.
Birthday girl Susana ‘Suzy’ Guerra tried for her native land in 2014. She thought she had it all. A catchy song, a kick-ass dance routine, and an array of people on stage to appeal to everyone. Sadly, the whole package wasn’t quite enough to tickle the dialling finger of Europe’s voters. But she was two points away from a place in the final. She got beaten into tenth place by Valentina Monetta.
Suzy is 37 today.
Feliz Aniversário, Suzy!
