Choreography is key to any Eurovision performance. Sometimes the moves are spot-on, as with D’NASH and Mei Finegold. In other instances it’s less fierce and more adorable. Cue Tina Karol—the Ukrainian cowgirl from 2006—with her jump rope, sequined boots and yee-haw air kisses.
Naturally not everyone knows how to werk the stage. Sometimes attempts to bust a move result in motions that can only be described as cheesy, awkward, or just plain wrong. Prepare to call the dance police. These are five acts that need to head back to the studio.
