The Eurovision Song Contest is an annual event that brings together countries from across Europe to compete. It is a celebration of diversity, culture, and music that has captured the hearts of millions of viewers. In 2023, Teya & Salena will represent their country in the competition. Fans are eagerly anticipating what promises to be a spectacular performance. In this article, we will explore the history of Eurovision, the significance of the event, and what we can expect from Teya & Salena in 2023.

What is Eurovision?

The Eurovision Song Contest, also known as Le Grand-Prix Eurovision de la Chanson Européenne, is a yearly singing competition organized by the European Broadcasting Union. The performers chosen at the national level by each participating country’s public broadcasting service come from all over Europe. They cover a wide range of popular music genres.

History of Eurovision

The Eurovision Song Contest is a popular and eccentric European event that draws millions of viewers worldwide. As the longest-running annual international televised music competition, it has become a must-see for many households. Let’s go back to its origins.

The Eurovision Song Contest began in Switzerland on May 24th, 1956, and was inspired by the Italian Festival di Sanremo. The first winner was Lys Assia with “Refrain,” and the contest has since evolved but still has a global following.

The show’s format has evolved with the participation of over 40 countries. Knock-out rounds and semi-finals precede the final 26 acts who perform on finals night. Each of the 43 countries gets a vote, despite only 26 performing.

Who are Teya & Salena Eurovision?

Teya & Salena’s song “Who the Hell is Edgar?” has quickly become a fan-favourite among Eurovision enthusiasts. ORF, the Austrian broadcaster, chose them internally to represent Austria at the upcoming Eurovision event in Liverpool. The announcement was made on January 31st.

Teya Devy

At the age of twelve, Teya Devy discovered her passion for music and was inspired by Adele and Amy Winehouse. She taught herself to sing, acted in musicals and even played the saxophone in a jazz orchestra. When she was 17, she began writing songs and attended composition camps throughout Europe – particularly Eurovision camps in Switzerland, Belgium, and Sweden. In 2020, Teya (now known artistically as Teya) had the opportunity to participate in the selection process to represent Austria and Serbia at Eurovision.

Selina Edbauer

Selina Edbauer, better known as Salena Eurovision, has a musical background and began singing at a young age. After performing on The Voice of Germany, she travelled to Berlin and Cologne to further her career in Pop and R&B music. However, in 2019 she returned home to Vienna where new opportunities arose for her. She has since worked with renowned composers/producers from all over the world. She has also been featured in ads for Austria’s biggest broadcaster. Additionally, she participated in the preliminary rounds of the Eurovision 2021 selection process as well as Starmania 2021 – both providing her with chances to showcase her work.

“Who The Hell Is Edgar?” Teya & Salena Eurovision

On March 8th, a new pop song was released that speaks out against the music industry. It is an energetic and empowering anthem for female songwriters, taking aim at the sexism present in the industry when it comes to deciding whether a song is good or not. Not only are these messages present in the lyrics of the song, but also in its accompanying music video.

The video features two young women dressed up as men presenting their proposal to a group of bosses – all male – which critiques how most positions at the top of this sector are held by men rather than women. References to Spotify and its profitability for singers can also be found throughout this track.

Eurovision 2022 results

Stefania by Kalush Orchestra from Ukraine was the 66th Eurovision winners in Turin, Italy on Saturday. They received significant support from the European public through telephone voting, beating out strong competitors from the United Kingdom, Spain, and Sweden.

The lead singer of a band called for help for Azovstal in Mariupol, Ukraine. The Ukrainian president asked Europe to vote for Kalush Orchestra. Sam Ryder’s Space Man led the jury vote but finished second after the public vote was added.

Ryder expressed that he did not care about his placement in the event, as it was meant to celebrate inclusivity, expression, love, peace, joy, and togetherness. Focusing on the scoreboard would diminish the event’s magic and shine.

Eurovision movie – Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga

Netflix’s Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga, featuring Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams, introduced many Americans to Eurovision for the first time. The movie was a hit for Ferrell and featured cameos from Eurovision winners like Loreen, Alex Ryback, Jamala, Conchita Wurst, and Netta.

The movie inspired by the Eurovision Song Contest combines music, comedy, and romance. The Eurovision cast consists of Actor Will Ferrell travelled to Lisbon during the 2018 contest and later confirmed that a movie about the show was in production. The film was originally scheduled to premiere on the same day as the Eurovision 2020 Grand Final but was postponed due to the global coronavirus outbreak.

The plot of the Eurovision Song Contest The Story of Fire Saga, centres around two Icelandic musicians, Lars Erickssong (played by Will Ferrell) and Sigrit Ericksdottir (played by Rachel McAdams), who are selected to represent Iceland in the Eurovision Song Contest.

Eurovision winners who became famous 


ABBA’s win with “Waterloo” in 1974 helped define the potential of Eurovision as much as Eurovision helped define ABBA. The group’s success in the contest and subsequent pop hits cemented their status as Eurovision’s most celebrated act.

Celine Dion

Celine Dion, who won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1988 for Switzerland with her song “Ne partez pas sans moi,” is one of the most renowned musicians of all time.


In 2012, Loreen won Eurovision and brought the title to Sweden with her hit song “Euphoria”. She has since made appearances in subsequent Eurovision contests and also had a cameo in Eurovision on Netflix. Sweden has consistently performed well in the contest, and Loreen is one of their notable contestants.


In conclusion, Teya and Selena’s victory at Eurovision 2023 showcase the power of music to unite people from all corners of the world. The Eurovision Song Contest continues to be a platform for artists to showcase their talents, and for countries to come together in celebration of diversity and culture.
