Questions for Elnur Huseynov.
“Having participated in Eurovision in 2008, what is one thing you learnt you should do & one thing you learnt you should not do?”
“How did you end up with the brilliant song, The Hour of the Wolf? Did you choose it? Was it chosen for you?”
“Do you have an album waiting for release shortly after Eurovision?”

This is a question for Alexander Rybak – Do you plan on competing in Eurovision again, and if so, would it be for Norway or Belarus?

This is a question for Eldar Gasimov – Will we see any more songs with Nikki in the future?

Have you and Michael Nekrasov considered teaming up with a native English speaker who could write lyrics for new songs for you? Micheal is a great composer, no doubt, but to go beyond the Ukrainian market you need new songs in English, not just Ukrainian or Russian. And that seems to be an issue.

to eldar I’ll like to ask: How would you compare turkvision with eurovision? and would you like an event that could join the two major events? To alexander: Did you ever though in submitting your 2009 entry for Belarus instead of norway? Why did you apply for norway? Would you come back with milki again to produce more songs? to marie N: I’d like to know if there is anything you would change on your performance from the year you won, if you could perform it again?

Questions to Alexander Rybak:
1.
You take part in a show in Russia where you impersonate other artists, and have already done some great performances. Are there any artists you have a wish to imitate, but yet not got the chance to do?

2.
If you were asked, would you concider being a judge in a show like this or any another music and talent show?

For all four of the artists I’m mentioning, I love your songs and cannot wait to see you in Vienna! For my absolute #1 favorite Nina: there’s a lot of complexity in your music video; do you plan to recreate it onstage at Eurovision, or should we expect something else? Follow-up: if you want to recreate your video, how will you do that? For Aminata: do you plan to use your choreography with Avikk in Vienna, or are you going to do something more akin to your Supernova performances (personally, I think it’d be a great compromise for you to… Read more »

Aminata, I just love your song. Just hope you reach the top 5 and, who knows, bring back the trophy to Riga. I’m impressed. Never listened a song that gets as stuck in my head as your song does. But I know that it isn’t a typical song, it makes me wonder something I’m about to ask you. Was it a melody that you’d imagined in your head or you had the idea to create something totally different that got constructed as time passed by? Anyway, you know how to innovate. I’ll be cheering for you from Spain in 23rd… Read more »

Ask Alexander Rybak: Does he usually cancel things just 10 hours before they start, or was he being a crybaby just this time at FiK? Cause that was really irresponsible.
We got Rona anyway (yayy us), so thank you for not coming. ;D

4 miss Melanie Rene of Switzerland .. 🙂 Its You Time To Shine In Vienna…! <3 🙂 I really like your beautiful song and its one of my most favorites! <3 It will be unfair if you won't pass to the grand final & i will be very sad about that if it happens! You are very pretty and one of the most sympathetic acts in Vienna's Diamond Vision <3 🙂 ~ What makes you shine as a person and be able to overcome the hard difficulties in your life? These might be more than one factor possibly of course..… Read more »
