Alex Sparrow – ‘Let’s Stay Home Tonight’

It’s that time of year when we would ordinarily be gearing up to watch European music’s night of nights, The Eurovision Song Contest. Alex Sparrow competed for his native Russia in the contest in 2011, when it was held in Dusseldorf, finishing in 16th position. There’s no Eurovision this year because of Covid-19, but there’s an Alex Sparrow song – the singer, composer, actor and producer, now based in Los Angeles, has released his most recent single, ‘Let’s Stay Home Tonight’, and although it’s no compensation for the Eurovision, it’s a fun song with an equally upbeat music video.

When UK Eurovision Entries Charted At Number 1

The UK certainly hasn’t had much success at Eurovision over the last couple of decades – the last win was in 1997 with Katrina and the Waves; and the last runners-up place was in 1998 with Imaani. In the 21st century, the UK has only reached the top 10 twice (third in 2002 and fifth in 2009). In fact, since 2003, more often than not, the UK has finished outside of the top 20, including three last-placed finishes and a famous nul-points for Jemini in 2003.
