Eurovision Mania Revisited!

21 EUROVISION SONG CONTEST 2018 – LOOKING BACK: Going through to the Grand Final was ESTONIA whose gorgeous representative gave a soaring rendition of a popular/operatic mix of a song called ‘FORCE’ (of destiny), which went down a treat with the crowd. The singer’s dress reportedly cost 65,000 Euros. Seems unlikely she’ll get a lot wear out of it. (Photo by L.J. May S/S)
