Does the best song always win a Eurovision Song Contest? Sometimes, sometimes not. Although we probably get the right song winning. Some of you out there might prefer the songs that finish second or third. Again, I often wonder how some songs were liked enough to finish second or third.

The song by today's birthday girl finished third behind Denmark and Azerbaijan. It is, of course, former parliamentarian Злата Леонідівна Огнєвіч/Zlata Leonidivna Ognevich.

Zlata is 31 today.

З Днем Народження, Злата!
