Eurovision Winners in AH [Game]

NOTE: I wasn't sure where to place this, please move this to the right place if necessary.

Bonjour Mesdames et messieurs,

In honour of the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest, I thought I present my list of Eurovision winners in Alternate History.

But to make it more interesting, I'd thought instead of giving away all of the years, I'd make you guess the songs! For the winners who won OTL, I've placed the answers already, for the others, I have given only the country. You have to use the hints I have given to suggest which song won for that country in the years stated.

In the next post, the winning countries will be revealed. Just copy the format and add (for those years I haven't revealed the songs) what song you think fits in. As soon as someone gets the correct song for a year, I'll update the post.

Bonn chance everyone!

EDIT: Forgot to add that Alexander was actually born in Belarus SSR. ITL, he doesn't move to Norway as a young boy.
I knew about that, that is why i asked if he sing it in russian, it might not make that much sense to sing it on english and the russian version is pretty good too.
While I understand that, the rule that you can still sing in any language still exists ITL, and the English version was the preferred version.

Anymore questions on the hints etc?
