I fell for Johnny on Eurovision, says Hazel

AFTER years of idolising Johnny Logan and his leather pants, former pop star Hazel Kaneswaren is one step closer to living her Eurovision dream.

Mum-of-four Hazel, right, is one of the mentors for the 2014 Eurosong and couldn't be happier.

"I fell in love with Johnny Logan as a young child," Hazel (35) told the Herald. "I've loved the Eurovision ever since then and am really looking forward to mentoring my act for the Eurosong."


Hazel shot to fame when she appeared on reality TV show Popstars: The Rivals.

The music lover will now go head to head with five other musical mentors as they battle it out for a place at the 59th Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen.

"Every year the Eurovision winner is different, so it's hard to know what the public want but I'll give it my best shot," said Hazel.
