So , while we’ve ended one Eurovision season and started another ( patiently waiting for the host city to be announced for ESC Italy 2022) , another popular competition returned last week on BBC ,which is popular with some Eurovision fans too, the 2021 edition of Strictly Come Dancing !
During last year’s edition of the show, we at Eurovision Ireland couldn’t help but notice the occasional invasion of Eurovision to Strictly Come Dancing , usually through a song from Eurovision being one which one of the couples would dance to or the title of another song from a former Eurovision participant. Today , we were delighted to find that Eurovision is already making its mark in the very first competitive episode of Strictly Come Dancing 2021 , when it was announced that professional dancer Katya Jones and her celebrity partner, Adam Peaty will be dancing a Cha cha to a song called “Beggin” by none other than this year’s Eurovision 2021 Italian winners, Måneskin !!
It seems like our winners this year are certainly making their presence felt everywhere .You can hear the song that Adam and Katya will be dancing away to on Saturday , below..
What do you think ? Are you hoping that there will be more Eurovision influences in this year’s Strictly come Dancing . Keep watching over the next few weeks to find out !
