Images from the Red Carpet

eurovision trophyEurovision 2015 – Last night saw the grand opening of the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest with a red carpet event at the Vienna Rathaus. All 40 delegations walked the carpet, gave interviews, took photo calls and then attended a welcome ceremony hosted by the Mayor of Vienna.

The Eurovision Times went along to check out the red carpet fashion. For those of you that missed the live stream, here’s some images from the night. As the acts made their way up the carpet the classical band on stage played half a dozen or so Eurovision hits… over and over!

Conchita (Austria 2014) kicked things off and took an age to get up the carpet. Denmark also took a long time as they were in demand and were working the press.

The Makemakes from Austria, who seemed totally oblivious to what was around them, accidently got in the way of Lisa Angell from France. After eventually realising she was another act, they apologised profusely and built bridges…

Elnur from Azerbaijan was in the mood for dancing and tried to get everyone to join in to ‘Waterloo’…

The UK’s Electro Velvet had a quick chat to us.

Eduard from Moldova decided to come in ball and chains. Some may think it’s tacky but Moldova have yet again brought the fun and party to Eurovision this year along with Serbia.

Large crowds of Austrians lined the route and filled a stand too, and interestingly their biggest cheers were for Austria (obviously) Italy and Serbia. A ‘Bojana… Bojana’ chant went up as she went onto the stage!

    I’ve found Armenian girls and the Norwegian mermaid te most fashionable 😊
