Sally Ann Triplett Biography

Triplett first represented the United Kingdom in the Eurovision Song Contest 1980 as the lead female vocals of the six-piece band Prima Donna. Other band members included Danny Finn from The New Seekers and Lance Aston, brother of Bucks Fizz singer Jay Aston. Prima Donna finished a moderately successful third with their pop-ballad "Love Enough for Two"; however the song was a flop in the charts, and the group disbanded after their second single.

Two years later, she again represented United Kingdom in the Eurovision Song Contest 1982, this time as part of a double act Bardo. Their song, "One Step Further", was a frantic pop number with a complex dance routine. The vigorous choreography noticeably affected the vocals, and not helped by no backing track and a live orchestra, the song finished seventh. Author and historian John Kennedy O'Connor notes in his The Eurovision Song Contest – The Official History that Sally-Ann Triplett is one of only four singers to have sung for the United Kingdom in the competition twice, alongside Ronnie Carroll, Cliff Richard and Cheryl Baker of Bucks Fizz. Triplett is the only act to have won the UK heat for Eurovision at both attempts (Cliff Richard was nominated twice without having to compete for the opportunity). The song, however, proved to be a success in the UK Singles Chart when it reached No. 2, and Bardo went on to release two more singles, although no further success followed.

In between her two Eurovision appearances, she was a regular in the BBC television programme Crackerjack!. Triplett has also made many appearances on television. This include Children in Need 2003, EastEnders, Doctors, Down To Earth, Acorn Antiques: The Musical!, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Holby City and The Fishing Trip.

In a 2009 interview with the BBC, Triplett stated that she would not participate in the Eurovision Song Contest again but, if asked, she would possibly consider it if offered a strong ballad.
