She’s a mother of two, and Wiwi’s favorite contestant at Eurovision 2011. But can Hungary’s Kati Wolf cope with the spotlight?
Following the dry run-through of the second semi-final (and an unfortunate move from our hotel to a rundown hostel), Wiwi and Vebooboo booked it over to the Russia Party at Euroclub hosted by Alexey Vorobyov. Our main goals, as always, were to get free food and drinks so we wouldn’t have to pay for dinner.
All the regulars turned up at the first semi-final press conference at Eurovision 2011: the contestants sweating ambition, the journalists asking stupid questions and the photographers taking pictures of folks obscured by microphones.

The first ten acts competing in the first semi-final rehearsed this morning. That means bookies and oddsmakers will be busy re-calibrating their predictions for Eurovision 2011. As such, Wiwi has taken an average of odds from 11 leading agencies. Here’s how things stand as of May 1.
Wiwi has been playing Kati Wolf’s “What About My Dreams?” on loop, and has re-created her teary, mascara meltdown in his own bathroom several times. But it’s time for a bit of change! Check out these remixes of Kati’s Eurovision song, compare them to the original, and let Wiwi know what y’all think!
