Children, Kinder, enfants - Margo, Franck Olivier, Diane Solomon, Malcolm Roberts, Ireen Sheer, Chris Roberts

Sometimes you wonder why people don't think of the most obvious things. So why was the 1985 Eurovision Song Contest entry from Luxembourg performed by a group called Margo, Franck Olivier, Diane Solomon, Ireen Sheer, Malcolm and Chris Roberts? The group was sometimes referred to as 'The Internationals', since Margo is Dutch, Franck Olivier is Luxembourgian (the fourth Lucembourgish representative to actually be native to the Grand Duchy), Diane Solomon is American, Ireen Sheer is British, the late Malcolm Roberts (1944-2003) was British and Chris Roberts is German.

This was Ireen Sheer's third participiation in the Eurovision Song Contest, in 1974 she represented Luxembourg with 'Bye bye I love you' and in 1978 she sang 'Feuer' for Germany. 'Children, Kinder, enfants', a song about the positive qualities of children, finished 13th in a field of 19 competitors.
