Stay tuned to Eurovision.tv this week for further announcements on which acts will be performing in Eurovision Song Contest's Greatest Hits.
Emmelie de Forest
Emmelie de Forest won the 2013 edition when it was staged in Malmö, with the song Only Teardrops, and gave Denmark its third victory in the contest, and brough the contest back to Copenhagen last year.
Lordi gave Finland their first and only victory in 2006 with the only hard rock entry ever to have won the contest, Hard Rock Hallelujah. Who can forget their monster outfits when they took to the stage in Athens?
It took Germany until the 27th contest held in 1982 to achieve their first win in the contest, and Nicole was just 17 years old when she stormed to victory with Ein Bißchen Frieden in Harrogate. Who could forget her mult-lingual winning reprise that helped the song become a massive hit across the continent.
