Eurovision 2018

#BIRTHDAY: Kate Gulbrandsen from Norway is 54 today

BIRTHDAY: Kate Gulbrandsen from Norway is 54 today

We have another opener today. I always comment on how difficult it it to open a show, even if you get more access to the free bar. But you’ll never quite know how the audience will be warmed up before you get your three minutes of fame.

Today’s birthday girl Kate Gulbrandsen not only opened the show, but she opened what was the biggest contest ever at the time. In the days before recaps of songs, she must have wondered how memorable her song would be after another 21 following her. Her tactic? Dress to impress. Who else could have carried off the boots that didn’t seem to stop and a hairstyle to remember? Not Johnny Logan that’s for sure. It must have worked, as she finished ninth.
