My earliest Eurovision memory is Gina G representing the UK in '96, the song was a big hit in Australia, and is still played in my local gay bar! These days, I imagine I'm fluent in Italian, singing 2015's Grande Amore passionately to everyone stupid enough to watch me! Being in the audience, in that stadium for the first time, in Vienna, has naturally solidified its place as my favourite final.
Eurovision is one of those rare moments where work and pleasure harmoniously intertwine. I felt like I'm in the right place, doing exactly what I'm supposed to be doing.
