The year was 2000 and the contest was held in Stockholm, the spiritual home of Eurovision. SVT presented Europe with a grand arena spectacle of a show which many have tried to better since. One of the most memorable songs from this year was from one of the hottest pre-contest favourites in early memory. Ines represented Estonia with Once in a lifetime and despite suffering from unfortunate chafing which allowed the whole of Europe to see what she had for breakfast plus a few internal organs she battled gamely to finish in 4th position.
