Los Angeles Star Daniela Ruah


For those who may not know, Eurovision is a song contest that takes place in Europe, and hosting it is a pretty big deal. In 2018, Ruah joined three other Portuguese celebrities (Silvia Alberto, Catarina Furtado, and Filomena Cautela) as hosts.

After Portugal’s 2017 win, it was Daniela Ruah’s husband who encouraged her to put her name on the list to become the host. Although she thought it was improbable, she gave her agent a call. She told Billboard, “My agent said, ‘That’s a great idea. As soon as everything settles down, we are going to look into that and see what we can make happen.’ And within a few months, it happened.”

Even though Ruah knows how important Eurovision is, in America, it might be harder for people to grasp its reach as not many are familiar with the competition. “People who work in television ask me, ‘What are the viewer numbers?’ When I tell them over 200 million people have watched the live broadcast, that makes people say, ‘Oh! Oh! Okay.'”
