THE INITIAL INVITATION

Second Chance Retro is back!

Countries that held a Eurovision National Final in 1984 are able to enter one of their non-winning National Finalists to give that song a retrospective Second Chance. This Contest has been held successfully for the past two years covering 1986 and 1985. (Second Chance started proper in 1987, so this Retro event takes the years backwards).

Official invitations have been sent to National Clubs. The Contest will take place during the summer of 2005, avoiding a clash with the true 2005 Second Chance event. Hopefully all Clubs will take part (25 SO FAR!)

For now, which songs from 1984 National Finals will each club choose? Check out the lists below and bring back some stirring memories... Entries have been highlighted, as they were chosen.

Could We Be Seeing?

Elisabeth Andreasson, Carol Rich, Daniel, Doce, Lia Vissi, Maribelle, Neo, Sonja Lumme, Tommy Seebach and Gary Lux are all possible entrants to Second Chance Retro 1984. Check out the full options below. Each Club will decide its entry for this Eurovision Style Contest during the summer of 2005. Clubs decide the size of their Jury (minimum 5) and the entry must be available as an MP3 or WAV file, to ensure a Contest CD can be issued for voting. Retrospective Eurovision fun!
