Introducing Paul Oscar

Paul Oscar represented Iceland at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1997, and to say he made an impact on our Terry was an understatement. With his backing dancers in fishnet stockings and erotic miminal clothing, Terry Wogan commented that the performance might have been from Channel Four. Not long after, Paul was on Channel Four, performing in ‘A Song For Eurotrash’ – a special edition of the cult show dedicated to the world’s most successful music show.

A successful musician, Paul Oscar has been going solo on the music scene since 1995. He’s worked in New York and his Iceland base, and has had a string of hits across many genres, including ballads, love songs, disco, house and techno. He is a world respected recording artist, producer and DJ and songwriter.
When he heard about the party, he got in touch and offered to come over and appear immediately.

“The moment you say it’s a ‘go’, I’ll book my flights and come straight over. I would love to be there along with Regina and Fridrik (representing Iceland this year). I just want to help them gain some recognition in England, and this is such an amazing opportunity”.
Could we deny Paul the chance to get back in front of the Eurovision fans again? Not a chance, and we can’t wait to see him back on stage with the Euroclassic “Minn hinsti dance” (“My Final Dance”) and an exclusive performance of his latest hit, “Allt fyrir astina” (“I did it all for love”) for the first time, in English!
