  1. Birdie

    "Sing, Little Birdie/310389" target="_blank">Birdie is the 1959 UK Eurovision entrant song that took second place at Eurovision 1959. Performed by husband-and-wife duo Pearl Carr & Teddy Johnson, "Sing, Little Birdie" was the first UK Eurovision entrant to be recorded reaching #12 in the UK charts. Pearl Carr & Teddy Johnson performed "Sing, Little Birdie" in the first semi-final of Eurovision Song Contest (ESC)/British Finals — the national preliminary round for the UK in Eurovision 1959 — on 2 March 1959. The duo also performed in the second semi-final of ESC/British Finals on 5 March 1959 with the song "That's It, That's Love", making Pearl Carr & Teddy Johnson the only act to ever perform two songs in the same multi-artist formatted UK Eurovision pre-selection round; the duo also being double-entered in the national preliminary round for the UK in Eurovision 1960. Polly Brown would perform two contending songs in the UK pre-selection round for Eurovision 1976 but as distinct acts: herself and as a member of Sweet Dreams.

Examples of birdie in a Sentence

  1. Lydia Ko:

    I don't think about the rankings or if one birdie is going to put me a couple shots in front of her, i feel very fortunate that there is a great competitor like her where I can work harder and be as good as her or get to that ranking.

  2. Ryan Moore:

    It's just tough to have birdie chances that are reasonable on this golf course right now, the greens are so firm and so bouncy. I hit a handful of what I would say are as good of shots as I could possibly hit the last couple days and ended up with 45-footers.
