The line-up comprises artists that left a mark in the history of the contest. Like the winner in 2002, Marie N, who took her I Wanna -dress change gimmick included- to the top of the ranking allowing Latvia to organise the event in Riga the following year where she was one of the hosts.
Close to victory were the two Spanish guests: Anabel Conde who placed second in 1995 with an amazing vocal performance of Vuelve Conmigo and Amaya Uranga, lead singer of the group Mocedades, which in 1973 finished only four points behind the winner with the evergreen Eres Tú. It is the first Eurovision-related appearance of Amaya since her participation in the Congratulations show in 2005.
On behalf of the Portuguese club, Vania Fernandes, who brought Portugal back to the Final of the Eurovision Song Contest with the highly regarded Senhora Do Mar and gave her country dreams of a victory in 2008. So did András Kállay-Saunders when he finished 5th in Copenhagen this year with his strong message tune Running representing Hungary. And from Serbia Milan Stanković who sang the Goran Bregović-penned Ovo Je Balkan in 2010 and even produced a Spanish-language version of it, Balkaneros.
All six artists will narrate their experiences in the contest and perform the song that participated in Eurovision in their respective years.
