Yesterday on 13th of May four Eurovision singers had their birthday, two of them are even former Eurovision winners. Today however, there are three Eurovision performers who celebrate their birthday. Two of them are actually born on the exact same day! Glen Vella and Sarbel were both born May 13th, 1983!
Sarbel represented Greece at the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest in Helsinki. Thanks to their good result from the previous year, he was pre-qualified for the final. Therefore he didn’t have to compete in the hardest semi-finals in the history of the contest. In the grand final he performed the ehnic dance song “Yassou Maria”, finishing in a very respectable seventh place.
Glen Vella, 35
Glen Vella represented Malta at the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest in Düsseldorf. He performed his song “One Life” in the first semi-final. He finished in the dreaded 11th place, thus just failing to reach the grand final.
Alyosha represented Ukraine at the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest in Oslo. There she gave us a flawless performance of her song “Sweet People” in the second semifinal. Her strong vocals and simple but stunning stage performance landed her in seventh place in her semi. Therefore she sailed through to the grand final. On the Saturday night she repeated the performance from the semi, receiving 108 points, thus finishing in 10th place.
All of us here at escXtra would like to wish these three Eurovision birthday stars the happiest of celebrations!
