With their amazing dance moves, pitch perfect vocals and outlandish costumes, we sometimes get the impression that our favourite Eurovision stars are from another planet. But, as this photo montage shows, they were once innocent kiddies just like the rest of us. Loosine, our Armenia correspondent, has dug through family albums in Greece, Romania, Ukraine and beyond and can now share the result of her work: three-minutes of awww.
It features: Andre (Armenia 2006), Dina Garipova (Russia 2013), Ruslana (Ukraine 2004), Natalia Kelly (Austria 2013), Verka Serduchka (Ukraine 2007), Celine Dion (Switzerland 1988), The Tolmachevy Sisters (Russia 2014), Nodi (Georgia 2013), Andras Kallay-Saunders (Hungary 2014), Aram Mp3 (Armenia 2014), Mariya Yaremchuk (Ukraine 2014), Emmy (Armenia 2011), RiskyKidd (Greece 2014), Ani Lorak (Ukraine 2008), Paula Seling (Romania 2010 and 2014), Cezar Ouatu (Romania 2013).
