Name: Kylie Wilson

Country: United Kingdom

First Eurovision: 1999

First Eurovision Memory: Even though I had no idea what Eurovision was at that point, I actually do remember “Ooh, Aah… Just A Little Bit” (1996) from back in the day, so technically that’s my first Eurovision-related memory.

Favourite Eurovision Winner: “Waterloo” (Sweden 1974), I know it’s an obvious choice, but it’s obvious for a reason. My second favourite is “Fairytale” (Norway 2009), I just love that song so hard!

Worst Eurovision Winner: By a country mile it’s “Believe” (Russia 2008), it’s the winning song that by far makes me the angriest!

Favourite UK entry: At the top of my head, I’d go for “Love Shine a Light” (1997), it’s just a shameless lighters-in-the-air anthem. Other songs I like are “Beg, Steal or Borrow” (1972), “Ooh, Aah… Just A Little Bit” (1996) just to name a few.

Worst UK entry: Well, there’s plenty of contenders from the 2000’s! “Teenage Life” (2006), “Flying the Flag” (2007); but if I had to pick one shining moment of badness, it would have to be “That Sounds Good to Me” (2010).

Worst Outfit in Eurovision Ever: The girl who sang for Spain in 1999 with the multi-coloured dress and the heart cushion. That was a dis-ah-tuh darling!

Favourite Eurovision Countries and Their Best Song: I have a few favourites. Serbia is one, they’ve been the most consistent in sending songs I like recently; as for my favourite song, I’ll go for a less obvious (post-2007) one and say “Oro” (2008). Bosnia & Herzegovina as well, my favourite of theirs is “Lejla” (2006). And I’ve also got a soft spot for Norway, the obvious favourite of mine for that is “Silent Storm” (2014)!
