The OGAE (Official Eurovision Fan Network) “Second Chance Contest” was hosted in Spain recently. This is a time-honored tradition run every year since 1987. The National branches of OGAE select a non winning song from their National Selection. The members of the clubs then vote on all the “Second Chance” entries from across the OGAE network and deliver their votes in the normal Eurovision fashion and we have a “Second Chance Eurovision Winner”.

Last year Spain’s Pastora Soler won the contest with her National Final Song “Tu vida es tu vida”. So who would take the crown this year? 15 countries participated this year and their National Final Songs were as follows

01. NORWAY: Adelen – “Bombo” 

02.  GREECE: Alex Leon feat. Georgina – “Angel” 

03.  ICELAND: Ylva Hreindís Svavar og Knutur – “Lífið snýst”
