“Eurosong” made a significant number of its champs stars, and the gathering ABBA and Celine Dion began their effective global professions because of the victory at the celebration, while the lone twofold champ, Johnny Logan, turned into a name that each Eurovision melody fan should know.
Many have demonstrated that acknowledgment doesn’t come just because of the triumph at “Eurovision”, and we single out six members who had a decent effect notwithstanding the way that they didn’t win.
1. Domeniko Modunjo – Nel blu dipinto di blu
Italy has twice won the “Eurovision Song Contest”, yet it appears to be that the victors didn’t have the effect left by Domenico Modugno after the opposition in Hilversum in 1958.

Great Britain won for the second time a year sooner and as of now had a major top choice to succeed at home.
With the tune Congratulations, Cliff Richard lost the triumph by just one point, so he was in runner up behind the Spanish agent Masiel, who sang La, la, la.
The way that the program on the event of the 50th commemoration of the opposition held in Copenhagen in 2005 was called Congratulations shows how much the tune stayed engraved in the memory of “Eurosong” fans.
3. Hulio Iglesijas – Gwendolyne
At the point when he was picked to address Spain, Julio Iglesias previously had one collection behind him, and his melodies were at the highest point of the Spanish outlines.
He composed the melody Gwendolyne, which took him to the opposition in Amsterdam, along with Leo Jones, and his motivation was the Frenchwoman Gwendolyn, whom he met as a 20-year-old law understudy and goalkeeper of a football club.

The first of the two delegates of Serbia and Montenegro was Zeljko Joksimovic, who was chosen in 2004 to address the recently designated state association with the tune Lane moje, for which he composed the music himself, while the content was composed by Leontina Vukomanovic.
The “Eurovision Song Contest” in Istanbul was the first to have two rivalry nights – semi-last and last, and since this was the presentation execution of Serbia , Zeljko Joksimovic needed to act in the elimination rounds first.
