4 February – Give it up, give it up, give it up

It’s all starting to happen in Europe. It seems like 56 countries all had shows last night to find that winning formula for Lisbon. A new act? An old act? A conglomeration of acts? Who knows.

Back in 1991, our friends in Belgium not only went for an internal selection, but they went for the established act. What could possibly go wrong? Well, throw in a combination of Carola, Amina, Dulce and a Duo, and your nailed-on act gets a bit lost. Seven countries remembered this little ditty from Clouseau. Belgium possibly hasn’t been the same since.
