  • To learn what to input into each blank for see above and {{Infobox Single}}.
  • When using this double template, do NOT use the image and caption fields for an image (the album cover) can already be seen in the {{Infobox Single}}. An image of the performance would be appropriate for the artist's page or in the main body of the text.
  • This double template should be used more often than just {{Infobox ESC entry}} since most Eurovision songs are released as CD Singles.
