Lys Assia, the very first winner in the Eurovision Song Contest, remains an important symbol of the festival. Since taking first place with “Refrain” way back in 1956, she’s been a constant presence. We love her attitude. We love her fire! And we love hearing her opinions.
Lys has now published Lys’ list, which ranks her Top 20 favourite songs for Eurovision 2014. It’s clear that this lady loves ballads and mellow tracks as she gave Belgium first place, and ranked Norway, Austria, Sweden, San Marino, Montenegro and the Netherlands in her Top 10. What do you think of her picks?
