J'ai volé la vie - Nathalie Paque

Nathalie Paque was born on May 11, 1977 in Liège, Belgium. She was selected to represent France during the 1989 Eurovision Song Contest. Although Sandra Kim's victory for Belgium at the age of 14 was already three years before, some countries were still playing the paedophile card, hoping to score with a cute looking youngster. (Thankfully, or regrettably, these days there's a Junior Song Contest for this kind of thing.)

Since the EBU was prompted by the very young age of Paque to set an age limit in 1990, barring any children from under 16 from the contest, she will always be the youngest participant in the Contest ever: at just 11 years old. She sang 'J'ai volé la vie' ('I've stolen life'), an unremarkable song that finished eighth out of 22 participants.
