Hi all,

I'm a teacher organising an end of year performance based on the Eurovision Song Contest.

What I'm looking for is the names of artists or bands who are well known in the Uk (especially ones famous for cheesy pop songs we can sing) E.g. Abba for Sweden. Any European country will do, I'm just struggling to find a list of examples to give to teachers as a starting point.

Alphabeat from Denmark. Fascination is probably most famous song. A very underrated pop group imo!

Daft punk are from France.
