U2, Garth Brooks and Metallica are leading the chart of the 50 Highest-Paid Musicians of 2018. The just released chart on Billboard also includes one Eurovision winner and she is no more than Celine Dion!
The canadian and winner of 1988 jumps 11 spots from last year, despite banking the least amount of publishing royalties on the list (because she rarely writes the songs she sings). Still, her catalog generated $1 million in artist royalties, and her Las Vegas residency and live shows minted $15.1 million.
Celine Dion is in the middle of the chart at number 26.

Normally we don't put so much attention to the ESC artists who passed away but it is unevitable not to talk about the very first winner of Eurovision.
Lys Assia, has died aged 94. The Swiss-born songstress triumphed at the inaugural edition of the competition with winning song Refrain in her home country in 1956. Rosa Mina Schärer – who turned 94 on March 3 – died on Saturday at Zurich’s Zollikerberg Hospital.
Beloved by all the fans of Eurovision, Lys was considered as Queen of Eurovision and she was present in severall events as a living symbol of the contest.
Lys Assia was always connected to the contest and she entered the Swiss national selection Die grosse Entscheidungs Show to represent Switzerland in Malmö at the Eurovision Song Contest 2013 with the song "All In Your Head" featuring the hip-hop band New Jack. There were also rumours of Assia representing San Marino, however it was announced on 30 January 2013 that Valentina Monetta would represent San Marino.
The official website of Eurovision published that "In the coming days we will pay tribute to the contest's First Lady by putting her life in the spotlights she enjoyed so much".
