Greece’s Sakis Rouvas has admitted that his first Eurovision rehearsal was far from perfect, but says he will improve before the semi-finals. At the 2:50 mark Sakis has a series of errors.

When it comes to inspiring YouTube imitations, Turkey’s DÃ¼m Tek Tek may soon rival Beyonce’s Single Ladies. Wiwi dug through hundreds of videos to find four of the best (and worst) Hadise-wannabes in action. Enjoy! This American man can really pop. Furkan Cinar doesn’t have the best voice, but he oozes Eurovision passion. Um, this […]
Seriously. Watch this video. Greek heartthrob Sakis Rouvas puts on a tight t-shirt, rides around on a bike and then climbs a mountain (all while looking pretty) just to let you know he cares.
For Wiwi, the biggest surprise on the third day of rehearsals came from 17-year old Christina Metaxa, the second youngest contestant at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest.

As of May 5, bookies had Norway listed as the odds-on favorite (1/12), though Sweden (7) is poised to score a surprise victory. Iceland (14) and Finland (16) have an outside shot, while Denmark […]

wiwibloggs has had his fingers crossed for weeks that Romania’s Elena Gheorghe, the half-Macedonian daughter of a priest, would deliver a Eurovision performance as exciting and surprising as her standout tune The Balkan Girls. Sadly, her rehearsal this afternoon was a total letdown.

In true Roma fashion, he’s taken his fiddle-playing, fidora-wearing group Gipsy.cz around the world, performing in places like Glastonbury, Seoul and Lisbon, winning plaudits along the way for his unique blend of humor and self-deprecating irony.
