She may be the Queen of Eurovision, as she was dubbed by the organisers of Eurovision in Concert, but Carola has been beaten by her own wind machine.
At Saturday’s press conference Carola took to the stage in true diva fashion, closing out the session before all press people scampered around after the contestants. She opened up with her winning number “Fangad av en stormvind”…but unfortunately the wind really got to her. For some unknown reason, Carola decided to show up in a loose slip. And the wind took advantage. Throughout her performance, the wind clung mercilessly to her gut and private parts, giving the press quite the scare as they were forced to view every detail. At one point, the wind went for more and lifted up the singer’s skirt.
Carola, to her credit, was playful about the whole thing. She commented after her song that she was just glad her dress stayed on. We were too.
Watch a clip from Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf and judge for yourself! And check out our iPhone video shot from the audience. You can hear Carola perform her number and then do a question-and-answer with Renee, the Eurovision in Concert organiser.
