Let’s go back 17 years to the first Eurovision Song Contest I ever watched. Samantha Janus was the hot favourite with the British bookies (which is nearly always the case however). She pulled off a good performance but didn’t impress the judges, having to make do with 10th place. That year’s contest was won by a youthful fresh-faced Carola singing for Sweden.
