|XANDEE (singer) Belgian entry, Istanbul 2004: 22nd place (7 pts)|
|At last! A performer beginning with 'X'! Hurrah!|
Who cares if she finished close to the bottom of the pile and her tit fell out. She begins with 'X'!.
|XANDRA (band) Dutch entry, Jerusalem 1979: 12th place (51 pts)|
|In 1979, Sandra
Reemer spelt her name wrong on the Eurovision entry form, but her
song (about her favourite part of Europe) was so good, that the
judges overlooked her error and allowed her to perform anyway.
This was on the proviso that part of her stage outfit was sold as
advertising space for the new neon safety patches designed so
that cyclists be seen at night.|
Sales of said patches went up by 500% and Sandra was rewarded with twelfth place and a night of passion with Izhar Cohen.
|Such is the all-embracing
unity behind the very raison d'etre of the Eurovision
Song Contest, you will never see any national prejudices or
politics invade the voting sequence whatsoever.|
Note: The person who wrote that last entry is currently undergoing intense therapy for delusion.
|XXL (band) Macedonian entry, Stockholm 2000: 15th place (29 pts)|
|Definitely not a
reference to their dress size, or their percentage of the vote,
XXL hit the good folk of Europe with a suspiciouly spicy sounding
song in 2000, utilising all the skills they had picked up at the
Skopje branch of the Samantha Janus School of Singing in Key and
The single is cheeky enough, but, ouch! stick to the recording studio girls. They loff us von hundert per cent, yes they do.
(thanks to Catherine Baker for that last bit...).
|There have been
many moments in ESC history which were far too rude for the
average viewer to be subjected to: those two Danes playing tonsil
hockey in 1957, the near glimpses of Gina G's private golf
course, and Linda Waggenmaker's jiggling jubblies are just three.|
However, none have turned viewers to switch off with more disgust than the explicitly graphic arse-licking which went on during the voting in 1994.
