Another "Eurovision entry" can be found in the Top 60. But this not a song performed in Belgrade… Which one ? The Swedish 2007 entry, The worrying kind, this time performed by Mia Hirasawa. Her cover (and classical) version was shown during the Swedish final.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined esctoday.com in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
