Back in 2010, an unknown 19-year old named Lena Meyer-Landrut won the Eurovision Song Contest in Oslo. She gave a stirring performance that blurred the line between passion and psychotic obsession, and picked up nine sets of douze points in the process. But apparently the “Satellite” singer can’t remember any of that because of a mental blackout!
In an interview with German radio station RPR1, Lena talked about her Eurovision experience. “It was awesome, but to be honest I can’t remember my victory that well,” the 24-year-old singer said. Lena also said that she feels amazing when she re-watches the final, but that it was too much for her to cope with back then: “It all passed me by like in a movie — it’s like a mental blackout. And NO I didn’t drink any alcohol, I swear!”
Funnily enough, Conchita Wurst has also said that she can’t remember any of her on-stage performance. Apparently blackouts are common among Eurovision winners!
