So, now we're going to one of the most sucesseful countries in both EM and ESC. Brittany Ashworth or, as we call her, Britt is an english girl playing on its home ground!
1. How did you joined EM? How did you find out about EM?
I joined EM back in January 2012 at EM11, representing Ireland! I honestly have no idea how I found out about EM, I believe I received an email about it, as I am a huge Eurovision fan and was part of several websites dedicated to Eurovision.
2. Did you discover new music at EM? Name some of your favourite songs.
I definitely discovered some AMAZING songs. I love to learn about cultures and languages and it made me appreciate other languages so much more - my music playlist is so diverse and brilliant now thanks to EM! Some of my top favourites that come to me right now are:
From Ukraine, Ani Lorak - "Solntse"
From Sweden, Anna Bergendahl - "The Army"
From Italy, Annalisa - "Senza Riserva"
From Turkey, Kolpa - "Beni Aşka İnandır
3. What do you like most about EM?
I love the mixture of cultures, languages and the fact that's a place to express my love for all things from Eurovision where I often find it difficult to express within my daily life - plus I love meeting new people and new languages and new music!
4. Are you happy with the results and voting system in general?
Pretty happy, yes. I do often find the winner is a song I have never voted for - but I enjoy that, because it's always exciting to find out who the winner is as there is never an obvious country!
5. Do you think that this contest can be improved? How?
More links or ideas to the actual official Eurovision song contest!
6. What do you think about the EM Organizers and the other groups of EM (Family, Journalists, Fairness Commitee)?
I think all the organizers do a fantastic job and have dealt with the majority of situations very well indeed. I love the EM family, its a great page and I love to read everyone's posts and see their music, opinions and languages! I do wish we had more articles from the Journalists but I understand time is a big problem and also there isn't much Eurovision related news at the moment!
7. Did EM influenced your life in some particular way?
It helped me explore wider music genres and languages and songs I would have never listened to. I love everthing about it!
8: Since when do you follow the show? Which are you first memories of it?
My first ever memory was from the 2002 contest when Latvia and Marie N won! I loved the idea of having fantastic, strange and awesome music on the TV! I was only aged 8, but since then, myself and my family have been HUGE fans and have followed the contest ever since!
9. Did you liked this year's winner? Did you had any other favourites?
Only Teardrops? I found it to be a very predictable win! My other favourites were Italy, Georgia, Norway and Greece which were all fantastic songs!
10. What about ESC2014? What are you expecting with all the recent news, from already selected singers to details about the venue and the show?
I'm incredibly excited for ESC 2014 as I may be able to actually attend it live! My country, United Kingdom typically does terrible at Eurovision, but I've heard we have a new selection process for 2014 which is incredibly exciting. I hope for good things!
11. If you had to select, which would be your "All-Time" song from ESC?
It simply HAS to be Serbia 2007 "Molitva" - amazing, catchy, gives me the shivers every single time I hear it. A fantastic song, in Serbian (and most winners seem to be in English!) and simply amazing. It was the song what won that year, not the production or the dancers - it was a great year for music!...
A close second does have to be 1997 UK "Love Shine A Light", as it is my own country, and our last win and the song really speaks to me and I love it!!
12. Any last words to end the interview?
Thank-you for interviewing me - I hope you all love eurovison as much as me and Eurovision Memories, which is a significant part of my life now! Thank-you! xoxo
Well, thank you, Britt!
Oh, and Congratulations! You just won the last edition of Season 3!! We want to know as soon as possible where we're going to meet in the beginning of the next season!
