  2. This was great to see. I have never seen Dame Shirley with Backup singers, not counting the performance with the All men’s choir. She really wowed the audience with switching to Italian. That was great. Nice article. I can’t believe Dionne Warwick would make the finals and not Dame Shirley. The fact that all Italians won, says it all. Thanks for this lovely historyl.
