Euroclub was the place to be last night, as the stars descended for the Eurovision 2016 opening ceremony. Singers, dancers, TV hosts and mentors from 41 delegations (Norway abstained due to Agenete’s health issues) walked the red carpet under the glare of the world’s media and adoring fans. The entourages were all smiles and waves as they paraded by, but this is Eurovision. It’s a contest, and even on the red carpet competition is fierce. Which stars were dressed to impress? And which ones were victims of a fashion car crash? We’ve collected photos of each of the acts, and y’all can rate them a “Hit” or a “Miss”. You can then vote in our poll to decide who worked the carpet best. Some people’s ENTM or ENTMM chances may depend on your verdict. Choose wisely.

Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be
on the web the easiest thing to be aware of.
I say to you, I definitely get irked while people consider worries that they just
do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top
as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect ,
people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.
Thanks

I like that we see many different styles on the red carpet. Men also wear colors other than black, which is refreshing. Yeah, not all of the styles work, but come on, none of them is THAT bad.

My favorite styles:

Men: Douwe Bob, Juri, Sergey
Women: Zoe, Ira, Iveta, Nina, Lidia

Gariela and Iveta look stunning, the bests.

BTW doesn’t Justs has any other clothes? He always wears that brown jacket (thanks god he got rid of it to sing on stage). I’m also praying to not see that Donny’s hairstyle on the live show.

@OR I’m not sure where to even begin with this. First, I don’t have friends, especially online ones. I’m Pollaski. Having friends just waters down the experience. Second, you kinda worry me, considering you are obsessed and highly overdefensive when it comes to any sort of critique or criticism concerning a singer in a song contest who you have zero personal relationship with. This is not normal behavior. At all. Furthermore, I would strongly advise you to read ‘the boy who cried wolf’, and take a long minute to compare that and your accusations of homophobia. Third, Israel and America… Read more »

It’s not up to you to tell someone to remove themselves from the blog. AND I think you are talking about yourself there when you say nobody would miss me, you’re the one getting on everyone’s nerves just because they don’t like the precious, but bland Hovi ‘star’.

u wish to have a perfect voice like hovi,, and his song is amazing!! this is only your opinion… i guess u have bad taste… and dont talk to me here again you hater person!!

Darren
Guest

@OR he done nothing bad on me. But you are always campaigning for him on Wiwibloggs, even in articles that have nothing to do with him, making out that he is the best person that ever lived. And no, I might not know him personally, but the videos I’ve seen of him, and the interviews I’ve seen of him show me a side to him that I just find annoying. Blowing glitter and stars into people’s faces on the red carpet last night didn’t help my opinion either.

first of all u dont know anything about hovi…
hovi is funny.. maybe to you its not funny .. for me he is funny..
about his name – he didn’t “called” hin self like that.. he was in the army and he was late all the time so his friends call him star and he left with his name,, any way what is your problem?? such hate for hovi,, did he do to you something bad?
hovi is the real star of the eurovision and u go and drink cold water to relax!

@OR first of all, you know nothing about me, and Irish humour is quite similar to American humour and I can tell you, Hovi is not funny! He tries to be the loudest voice! As for having ‘friends’ at Eurovision -these are not his friends, it’s all for publicity! Because of his appearance, he gets a lot of likes on social media, so of course the other contestant will want to pose for pictures with him, because all the likes for him, will be likes for them too. Hah and you call me the child. The fact that he calls… Read more »

This is only your opinion… hovi is joking all the time at his interviews he use humor all the time.. you are from Ireland u probably dont understand his humor.. its more american kind of humer.. i love his personality he makes me lough.. and if he is so arrogant like u say why he have so many friends in the eurovision?? he is far for been arrogant.. you are a child, when you grow up maybe you will undarstand types like hovi

@OR I’m not THAT fond of Douwe either, but I have done my homework and that’s the opinion I have come up with. Rember, nobody is perfect, no matter how much YOU think so.
From watching interviews and other pr of Hovi, I have reached the opinion that he quite arrogant and has some feeling of self entitlement. Like he thinks the world owes his something. Sorry but that’s my opinion, your going to call me ill informed but that’s how I see this and honestly, I don’t care

Stan

Checked the Dutch media about the ‘issue’ and it’s really not that bad. Just Douwe being Dutch and saying something to Hovi that he didn’t like about him… In some cultures that is acceptable (maybe not in Israel). Douwe could have been more diplomatic, Hovi could have been less drama queen, but I guess they both need some attention from the media…

And: Douwe did not say the homophobic incident didn’t happen in Russia

hovi is not treated differently because he is gay or dress differently.. the dutch singer wasn’t nice to him and hovi choose not to talk to him that his right… so go do your homework before u judge hovi. I also know that u dont like hovi so you are not really OBJECTIVE HERE !

@light star

Here’s a better idea.

We realize that both Hovi and Douwe are big boys and can work out their little pissing contest between themselves, and focus on matters that are significantly more relevant.

Darren

Also, can everyone calm down about the Douwe Bob -Hovi star incident. Nobody is perfect and not everybody is going to like someone. Stop fighting, it’s quite sad. This time next week the whole thing will be over.
And also, use because Hovi is gay, or dresses differently to everybody else doesn’t mean he has to be treated differently to everybody else. That includes when he does something wrong. I don’t see how Douwe is a homophobe just because he told him to stop doing something. But anyway, best of luck to all the contestants.
