11 May GRKBlogs: Our 5 Miracles Of Eurovision Hairstyles!
It’s Eurovision Semi Final II Night tonight! To mark Brendan Murphy’s ‘Dying to Win’ entry on Tonight’s Semi-Final, we decided to go back through the archives to look at…what else…but only the most miraculous* hairstyles of Eurovision.
* “miraculous” may be a loose term…
Jedward – ‘Lipstick’ (2011)
The boys from Clondalkin. High Hair. Interesting Fashion.
Lipstick was Ireland’s 2011 entry into the Eurovision. Let’s move on.
- Jamala – ‘1944’ (2016)
Jamala successfully represented Ukraine in the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 with the song “1944”. With a crown hair braid and set curls, her hair was always going to be a winner as well.
- Slavko Kalezic – ‘Space’ (2017)
We had no words to describe the miracle that was this helicopter of braided hair swinging around from Tuesday night’s Eurovision Semi Final I offering. None. Miraculous does not even cover it.
- Celine Dion – ‘Space’ (1988)
Yes she really did represent the Swiss in 1988. A shy, 20-year-old Quebecoise with a command of curls was enough to win when Celine Dion opened her mouth and blew the roof off the Point Venue in Dublin.
The Original Mr.McDreamyJohnny Logan – ‘What’s Another Year’ (1980)
Ah Johnny Logan. What *is* another Year indeed! With that head of hair and those, of their time, leather pants it is no wonder you had a series of miracles in the 1980s!
- Bonus Reference: – Linda Martin – Terminal 3 (1984)
While she did not win (She came second), Linda had amazing hair for the occasion.
