ImageInterview Katrina Leskanich of Katrina and the Waves (Winner of Eurovision 1997 for the United Kingdom):  On 08 September 2012, OGAE Portugal held their annual Eurovision Live Concert 2012 in the heart of the Portuguese Municipality of Setubal just outside of Lisabon. Many artists from the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 took part such as Joan Franka (The Netherlands), SINPLUS (Switzerland), Ott Lepland (Estonia) just to mention a few but as well as two Winners of the Eurovision Song Contest were there namely Niamh Kavanagh from Ireland who won in 1993 with the song "In your eyes". She was a repeat offender in returning to the Eurovision stage for a second time with the great "It's for you" in 2010. Also the second highlight of the evening was when Katrina Leskanich performed the UK Eurovision Winning Song "Love shine a light" from 1997 and of course as well "Walking on sunshine" which was a major hit in 1984 all over the world. The Team of Radio International were backstage to interview some of the artists and is extremely happy to share the interview with Katrina during this week's edition of Radio International. At this point Radio International would also like to thank OGAE Portugal for another outstanding event organised and looking forward already to the event in 2013. The Interview with Katrina is now also available on the Radio International YouTube Channel and can be viewed here.
