🎉 #EI10: Our Favourite Eurovision Song Contest Interval Act 2012 – 2021

At the start of April, Eurovision Ireland entered its 10th anniversary year. Now that the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest and its aftermath is over, we thought it was about time we got around to celebrating. Some of the current team, along with some of our contributors, have put their thoughts together.

Today, we are looking at our favourite Eurovision Song Contest Interval Act from the first ten years of Eurovision Ireland.

Of the ten contests, I think the Swedish Smörgåsbord from 2013 stands out. It was very well though out, and incredibly witty. It showcased Sweden as a country, with plenty of humour thrown in for good measure. And dancing meatballs – need I say more.

My favourite Interval Act is from 2019 – however it’s neither Madonna or from the Grand Final. In the 2nd Semi Final, Shavla Band took to the stage after withdrawing from the Israeli National Final. I’d lie if tears weren’t flowing due to this wonderful bunch of people.

Not much for intervals cos I am usually too scared to watch or have gone to the loo – which tells you everything you need to know about intervals!

Roy (Eurovision Apocalypse)

There’s been some cracking intervals over the last decade, but my fave of all has to got be the fabulously knockabout Switch Song Interlude from 2019 with Conchita, Måns, Eleni and Verka, which was a laugh riot from start to end, and played perfectly by everyone involved. It’s just a shame that the intervals didn’t stop there that year…
