It’s no secret that Wiwi and I are huge fans of Kati Wolf. We lobbied for her progression to the Grand Final in 2011 like no other, and were extremely disappointed to see her flop in final rankings at 17th place.
Vebooboo: This one was a bit disappointing. I loved the song when I first saw the way it was staged in the Hungarian national final, but somehow the staging from the first rehearsal seems a lot more toned down…and that ain’t a good thing. The second semi is a weak one, so I’m hoping this squeaks […]
Earlier today the Wiwi Jury—our in-house panel of music unprofessionals—traveled to Hungary to load up on goulash and to review ByeAlex’s “Kedvesem”. Did the mellow number put us to sleep? Or did it relax us into giving away our douze points? Read on to find out…
“Kedvesem” means “darling” in Hungarian, but the A Dal jury wasn’t feeling the romance last night.

That includes their band font, insignia, track titles, styling and artwork. Next week, they release their fourth single “Fly With […]
Performing Loreen’s “Euphoria” will always be risky: how can you not come off as totally karaoke when compared to one of Eurovision’s biggest stars? So when faced with the challenge, Antal Timi, a finalist on Hungary’s X-Factor, tried to make it her own. The hilarious result is embedded below.
You never know who is going to walk through the door of the Eurovision press center. From trannies wearing sequins to Congolese-Ukrainians to Azerbaijani security guards, it’s a catwalk like no other. So when Hungary’s Csaba Walko walked in we almost missed him. Fortunately WiwiBloggs.Com’s Deban Aderemi can sniff out a Eurovision star like Oprah […]
Anggun just dropped it like it’s hot on Hungary’s Got Talent—the country’s most popular TV program during Saturday prime time. The French songstress teamed up with Viktor Varga for the May 12 show, singing a duet of her Eurovision entry “Echo (You and I).” They danced alongside 15 fit dancers, and seriously blew Team Wiwi away.
