For many performers, winning the Eurovision Song Contest is the highlight of their career, catapulting them to international stardom. In part four of our Museum Monday series we asked several winners from over the years to reflect on their own experiences of winning one of the largest competitions in the world.
When we opened that show with our song, we all had our backs to the audience. Martin had to turn around and sing his lead and I'm always so grateful that I didn't have to sing that lead - Nicky Stevens, Brotherhood of Man I didn't think about winning Eurovision, what I thought about doing was actually making the people proud of the job that I did - Johnny Logan The step from anonymity into the spotlight was a small step for mankind but a giant step for me - Hanne Krogh, Bobbysocks It was another time, 1982 was not so huge, the lighting and everything. It was just concentrated on the person and the song - Nicole Wrong band, wrong place, right time - Lordi The arena was huge, I've never seen a huge arena like that - Loreen
