Barbara Deckx (born January 22, 1974 in Turnhout), better known by her stage name Barbara Dex, is a Belgian singer who represented her country in the 1993 Eurovision Song Contest with the song Iemand als jij. Dex had qualified via the Belgian national heat, Eurosong 93, held at the Casino Knokke on March 6th. At the Eurovision in Millstreet, she won seventh spot, after Greece's entry Eladha, Hora Tu Fotos and before Malta's song This Time. Dex came 25th and last. The performance has entered Contest folklore due to the self-made beige dress worn by the singer. Because of this dress, an award for worst clothing called 'The Barbara Dex Award' was introduced into the Eurovision Song Contest. Barbara returned to the Belgian final in 2004, teaming up with Alides for the song One Life which was placed third. A further Eurovision attempt came in 2006 with the country line-dancing flavoured Crazy which earned her the fifth place. Barbara Dex is one of three children of Marcel Deckx, a Belgian singer better known by his stage name Marc Dex. Her brother Tom Deckx has played bass guitar in the musical groups Tush and Nuts.[1] Read more on Last.fm.
