News: The Showstoppers’ Alternative Eurovision Song Contest raises £7,400 for The Care Workers’ Charity

Staged as a tribute to this year’s cancelled Eurovision Song Contest, Olivier Award-winning musical comedy improvisers The Showstoppers raised £7,400 on Friday evening for the Care Workers’ Charity by delivering their very own Alternative Eurovision Song Contest.

Featuring brand new songs parodying familiar Eurovision genres, The Showstoppers recreateed the OTT production values, high camp, and musical merriment of the world-famous competition, in a hilarious evening complete with commentary by Tom Allen, celebrity judges and interactive public voting.

The winner was Germany with ‘Bundesliga Dankeschoen Schmetterling Muttersöhnchen’ followed by France (’Super Sweet’) and Finland (‘Domino’). And it was such a success that it could become an annual event staged the night before the actual Eurovision Song Contest!
