RAI, the Italian national broadcaster, has revealed the full results of the public televote. They paint a very different picture to the results announced by the presenter Federica Gentile during the Eurovision Grand Final on Saturday.
Cezar Ouatu is a man on a mission. One of the world’s fiercest countertenors, he’s keen to prove that Eurovision fans can embrace opera, and that opera can make pop music pop! He caught up with wiwiblogger Deban Aderemi 30 minutes before the second semi-final jury performance on Wednesday night. Cezar talks about shaving his chest […]
Romania’s 2013 entrant, internationally acclaimed countertenor but lesser known pop-opera singer Cezar “The Voice” Ouatu, is a very intense and artistic individual.

The two caught up on the streets of Soho ahead of the London Eurovision Party in April. Cezar also […]
“It’s my life, and I know it’s not forever”, goes the song, and Cezar, our Eurovision Next Top Male Model frontrunner, seems to live by that in his just-released video.
