In the first of two special shows to coincide with the broadcast of the 2021 song contest in Rotterdam, we revist some of our recent interviews with Eurovision guest artists as they reminisce over their past experiences with the worlds biggest and most watched music event…
We love chatting to Eurovision artists on the show, so we regularly invite them to pop in. From across the spectrum of music genres and from a multitude of nationalities, you never know who might be on the show next!
