Eurovision is no stranger to the Grammy Awards.
The first recipient of the Record of the Year Grammy was a Eurovision song back in 1959. ‘Nel blu dipinto di blu’ aka 'Volare' by Domenico Modugno won the award. The song also took home the first Song of the Year award. It is the first and only foreign language release to win those awards and the only Eurovision song to receive a Grammy Award to date.
Gina G's Eurovision song for the United Kingdom in 1996, 'Ooh Aah... Just a Little Bit' was nominated in 1998 for Best Dance Recording. Donna Summer and Giorgio Moroder's song 'Carry On' ended up taking that Grammy.
ABBA have previously had their 1976 song 'Dancing Queen' inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2015.
Past Eurovision winner Celine Dion has been nominated for 17 Grammys, winning five of them with two of those for 'My Heart Will Go On' from the Titanic film soundtrack.
The 65th annual Grammy Awards will take place on Sunday February 5, 2023 in Los Angeles, USA.
