  1. BiH look gorgeous here but on the stage :(

  2. Oh,the most drama exploitive act of the edition,B&H!

  3. i still havent figured out why i “like” the bosnian entry this year: i know i shouldnt, and i know that it’s not just the whole “bosnia is back”, and i know the live looked sucky… i do think it’s the first time a song that feels “like early 00s esc” feels more nostalgic to me than just dated?

    • I agree it has that 00’s nostalgia feel but the stage presentation is hideous and shameful.

  4. Samra dress … No comment :/

  5. Ana Rucner looks classy.

    Also if people had seen Rykka’s interviews and press conferences they would know she is one crazy girl – she does whatever comes in her head at the time in terms of her looks.

  6. Slovenia
    İ dont remember the singer or the song

  7. Manuella raided Greta’s stage wardrobe apparently..!

  8. Zoë is one of the most genuinely beautiful contestants this year

  9. first time i notice zoë’s huge mouth! it’s like half her face :o

  10. I LOVE Zoe!She looks so stunning and stylish and bubbly.Shevek would approve too.

  11. Waist up Zoe looks fantastic but ugh why that feathery end ?

  12. İ love mint green but that flowers and feathers together are a bit to much
    She has no taste imo

  13. Eneda looks pretty good as well !

  14. Eneda seriously always looks amazing <3

  15. And I guess Agnete won’t attend the opening ceremony either..

    My thoughts are with this girl these days, I feel really sorry for everything she is going through and I hope esc works as a way to cheer her up and make her feel better.

  16. Albanian ladys hair and the dress color is a perfect match
    That kind of hair color is risky but she is rocking it

  17. I feel so bad for Agnete. She’s missing out on this whole Eurovision experience.

  18. Kaliopi seems to be having a lot of fun
    I wish the presenters had fun while commenting :/

  19. and voilà, going to eat now

  20. Going to finish today’s press conferences and then take a break :) There is a good possibility I will be booking tickets for the jury rehearsal of the 2nd semi and spend a whole day-night in Stockholm amidst the eurovision which I am excited about as well :) If that’s the case I will provide you with a in-stadium report of how everything went :)

  21. Jamie Lee is incredibly cute and likable, her press conference was so nice :) And that acoustic version of “Ghost” in the end..Gosh she is so talented !

  22. Most stylish men
    1. Måns
    2. Sergey
    3. Amir

    Most stylish women
    1. Barrei
    2. Ira
    3. Petra

    WTF Men
    1. Donny
    2. Donny
    3. Donny

    WTF Women
    1. Rykka
    2. Nina
    3. Greta

    Slut Boy Stockholm 16
    Vasillis Roxenos

    • Samra should really take any WTF award. She is dressed like a June bug.

      I highly commend Rykka’s hairstyle. Much more interesting than the ones she has sported on stage and the outfit too. If you go decide to go blue, i say the crazier the better.

      Nina has turned out to be Stockholm’s resident dominatrix. A lot of the details in her outfits are inspired from Tudor period costumes which I find interesting (the collar on her famous Kabuki tent with the tree prints for example) . And then they blow them out of all proportion going all batshit, science fiction crazy. I don’t understand it.

      Ira has just announced she is pregnant on Mother’s Day. The lengths to which some people go to get the votes…

      • Samra is very strong contender for that coveted overall WTF Award other nominees being Nicky and Rykka.
        No matter how blue Rykka dyed her hair, it wouldn’t help. She doesn’t have personality strong enough to wear these outré stylings. She is that lost and sad Swiss girl, not that crazy cuckoo Swiss girl, they thought this styling would create.
        Nina is worst dominatrix ever, she is only punishing herself. From the very begining she looked a bit like that she is not up to the challenge. Now we know. She’s not.
        Losco may try whatevet stunts. It’ll still be dead on the water in the final.

  23. I have just watched some red carpet interviews. Alas, I don’t like Michal. But the Danish guys were really likeable.

  24. WOW Ana Rucner WOW
