Ahead of the Eurovision 2014 Opening Ceremony it was freezing. So the team from wiwibloggs.com kept warm by cozying up to some of Eurovision’s hottest stars on the red carpet. Rui Andrade, who competed in Portugal’s Festival da Cancao this year, is in Copenhagen singing as a backing vocalist for Russia’s Tolmachevy Sisters. In our brief chat he tells us that he loves the Tolmachevy Sisters, and that he knows which one is Anastasiya and which one is Maria. We’re glad to hear it!

“desperate” just does it: and desperate degrades him and anyone. I’m not big on gay rights activism (though I am gay), rather *civil rights defence*. Anyway, I can’t but jusdge him as a traitor to the gay-rights cause here, as if he knew nothing about people like him being jailed, persecuted and even killed in half of the effin’ world!
Rui, fizeste cagada e terás de pagar pelos erros. Never again at ESC, not even as a backdrop geisha.

John – apparently Rui must have been VERY desperate to go to Eurovision so he is backing singer of Russia of the whole world. Not to start with what they are doing now to Ukraine, but as a gay man, he is traitor to his own community. Sad what $$$ does to people.

Intresting fact:Rui Andrade is actually gay ,i personally know him from Portugal,saw him a couple times in a well known disco in Lisbon calles Trumps,but its rather strange him being gay and accepting a invitation from Russia ,a Country that is obviously anti-gay.

The only reason that this artist and the songwriters from abroad participate is that Russia invite them for show Europe they have support from other countries for political reasons! They haven’t! Kirkorov’s song and Tolmachevy sisters bad!

I just can’t understand why invite a (portuguese) singer just to come on stage,unfold a fan and go backstage again. He’s part of the performance for about 4 seconds. Weird.

They seem like a lovely bunch too. Such a shame that we’ll never really get to know them well at Eurovision. The Russian delegation are just so strict and won’t allow many press to speak to them because they are afraid of being asked about politics. Tolmachevy Sisters are the most ‘isolated’ contestants this year. They just came to perform their song without having contact with others except press conference. So weird…..
