For months, bookies and fans alike have described Eurovision as a battle between two teen queens: Germany’s 18-year old Lena-Meyer Landrut, and Azerbaijan’s 17-year old Safura Alizade. And while Safura appears to have won over most of the London-based betting agencies, she’s keenly aware that Lena remains a threat. After all, Lena is currently the front-runner according to Google’s online prediction tool. “[Satellite] is very light and falls into your ear very easily,” she told her official web site safura.eurovisiontalents.com recently while on tour in Germany. “I’m looking forward to get acquainted to Lena in person in Oslo.” Is that girl talk for “I’m gonna cut out her vocal chords”?
It’s unclear how Lena feels about Safura. But if you watch this clip, you might think the German star hates her. When asked who her biggest threat in Oslo is, Lena names Safura and appears to compare her to a flesh-eating beast.
She is, of course, just joking. Wiwi loves her quirkiness and enthusiasm!
