Ever since I heard Constantinos Christoforou’s first notes of “Gimme” in 2001 I was one hooked Eurolover. I first attended ESC in Oslo and remember how electric the stadium atmosphere was. I remember how much hosting the contest completely changes a city and it’s people and was so hooked I’ve gone back every year since.
When you’re an Australian in a very European backyard you come across a lot of looks of bewilderment & surprise but the welcome you get from Eurofans is unforgettable. Valentina Monetta’s "Crisalide" is basically my soundtrack in life but Marija Serifovic’s "Molitva" is my favorite and most memorable winner.
