The audience inside the Esprit Arena went wild for Norway’s Stella Mwangi—but televoters and the jury didn’t. After her elimination during the first semi-final, Stella put on a brave face and gave interviews to Norwegian TV outside of her bus. But as this photo shows, not even blue eye shadow could hide the disappointment in her eyes.

But by the time Stella made her way to the afterparty at Quartier Boheme, she seemed to remember the message of her song “Haba Haba.” Little by little she kept on moving, and hit the dance floor hard with the Norwegian delegation. Stella finally had her groove back. Here’s a quick video of her getting down on it:

It is obvious, Stella Mwangi’s was marvelous & should have gone to final.The fact that there was technical problems means that the whole semi-final 1 should be nullified! I believe the technical problems affected the voting!
