Stars That Got Their Start On Eurovision!

There's a new appreciation for this singing contest!

The new Netflix movie Eurovision: Fire Saga stars Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams and is about the actual Eurovision Song contest that has been held annually since 1965-with the exception of this year.

 

The song contest sees a participant represents a country while each participating country submits an original song to be performed live on television and radio.  Each country then casts a vote for the other countries’ songs in order to determine the winner.

 

There’s been plenty of famous artists that have appeared on the show, but these five artists kick-started their careers on Eurovision.

 

Celine Dion represented Switzerland in the 1988 Eurovision Song Contest at just 20 years old. 

Olivia Newton-John appeared on the show in 1974

Enya represented Ireland in 1973, ABBA performed in 74’

and Julio Iglesias represented Spain in 1970.
