Ukraine’s Svetlana Lobodova nailed her rehearsal on Wednesday, debuting an over-the-top act that features LCD images of Sexy Sveta, three “hell machines—over-sized cogs with spinning metal ladders— and three bare-chested muscle men. Wiwi saw Svetlana perform in London back in April, and she had four men at that performance. Perhaps she ate one of them […]
Azerbaijan’s Aysel and Arash have delivered what may be the finest rehearsal of Eurovision thus far. Their performance of Always was spectacularly staged, with the LCD screen featuring erupting volcanoes, pulsating red lights and non-stop fire.

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. The teenage Cypriot and her producers have brought some pretty elegant staging. Christina twirls around like a ballerina, wears an age appropriate dress and climbs on top of […]

He reveals this and other juicy tidbits in the video below (don’t worry, the interview has English subtitles). He says that he no longer has contact with the woman he sings about in Fairytale, and he reports feeling sad that he doesn’t have […]
