Eurovision Song Contest 2001, Copenhagen, Denmark
« on: June 14, 2007, 05:51:23 PM »
EUROVISION SONG CONTEST 2001, COPENHAGEN, DENMARK


The 2001 contest saw a new era dawn in the history of the contest with a country from the so-called "new school" winning for the first time.  Estonia's victory could not have been more surprising.  A rank 50-1 outsider with the bookmakers pre-contest it was considered a no hoper.  It just goes to show that bookmakers should stick to horses and dogs.  Greece returned to the contest after a 2 year break with their biggest success to date.  Using a group who were based in Scandinavia was a clever ploy as Greece finished 3rd even without their biggest ally, Cyprus. Half of Antique, Helena Papaprizou, returned 4 years later to claim Greece's first victory.  Also returning, this time 5 years later, would be Malta's Fabrizio Faniello with a great deal less success than Helena.  The Dutch entry could have caused confusion.  Called "Out On My Own" it was similar to the Norwegian entry called "On My Own".  To add to the confusion both the Dutch and German entrants were called Michelle.  There was something familiar about the Swedish entry this year.  It was later revealed to be a possible plagiarism of the Belgian entry from 1996.  It has never been officially called as such but many ESC fans consider it to be a blatant rip off of the earlier entry.  That's not to say all ESC fans.  There are some who just don't see the similarities at all.  The voting was again one sided as Estonia took an early lead.  Denmark did have the lead for a while but 4 consecutive 12 points to Estonia meant victory was theirs.  Having had the oldest winners the previous years Dave Benton took that record from Jorgen Olsen by a matter of months.

Woohoo Niko is posting in this section - where he leads, others are sure to follow ! Now the forum will come to life, you mark my words !  :hi5:

Your number one song is by Natasha St.Pier.  8)  And I have her at #3. She'd love us both !
And we both have Rolling & King as #2. It's like we were separated at birth. Long lost twins or what ?

But wait, my top marks went to Croatia, yet you only place her 17th. :ohmy:  If we had been on the same jury, we'd have had to arm wrestle over that one.

^^ Another top score for France !  :goodjob:
I'd quite like Natasha St.Pier to return to the contest. I think she looks younger now than she did back then.
