Somewhere the Eurovision gods must be smiling. How else would you explain the coming together, Avengers style, of two of Eurovision’s all time greatest Divas – Chiara and Hera Björk? This is the Eurovision equivalent of when Beyoncé joined forces with GaGa. Okay, okay, I may be over exaggerating a little but this is big […]
You couldn’t get two more polar opposite acts than Euroband and Greta and Jonsí if you tried. One duet is high camp, dance and pink. The other is dark, ominous and, with a bit of a stretch, has more than a passing resemblance to an all-conquering global Vampire franchise. As Eurovision duets go they’re both […]
Iceland’s Eythor Ingi delivered an emotional, heart-felt performance of “Ég á Líf” at Eurovision. As he told us in an interview ahead of his semi-final, the song is all about giving thanks for the beautiful things in our lives. We now have a strong suspicion that list includes cows.

A few days ago William and Vebooboo snapped Eythor Ingi taking his girlfriend on a date to the local supermarket. A few days later wiwiblogger Deban Aderemi took a more straightfroward approach to coverage and scheduled a one-on-one interview. Eythor gets real deep y’all, telling us that his song “Eg a Lif” is all about how […]
Hello world, this is Malmö calling. I am so glad I flew out here to experience Eurovision live. The people, the facilities, the energy – it’s so much more than just the three shows. The people working here are charged up. The reporters are all fans. And the acts from each country are having the […]
Iceland is still feeling the chill of its 2008 financial collapse, but Eythor Ingi is keeping it hot. On Thursday he decided to take his girlfriend on a romantic outing….to a Malmö supermarket.
Wiwi: If Gandalf moonlighted as a waiter and earned the right to represent Iceland at Eurovision, he might look like Eythor Ingi did today. The Icelandic singer wore black pants with a white dinner jacket, and likely served shrimp cocktail to his backing vocalists afterwards. The song is about the joy of life, and Eythor employs […]
