Lights, camera, Eurovision! Ahead of Semi-Final 1, Semi-Final 2 and the grand final, Eurovision 2016 host broadcaster SVT will air “Studio Eurovision” — a one-hour long pre-show. Host Gina Dirawi will interview Eurovision 2016 acts and Swedish superstars from ESC and Melodifestivalen, and guest performers will drop their biggest hits. So you can imagine how excited the team from wiwibloggs was when our William and Deban were invited to serve as guest commentators during each show!
Studio Eurovision kicks off at 20:00 CET on SVT and you can watch it on SVT Play. We’re actually in the studio right now, but we’ve uploaded some Instagram pics below!
Here we are looking like McDonald’s employees during the run-through…
And here we are backstage rehearsing. Love these cue cards!
The delegation bubble, where competing artists hang out, is directly behind the studio, which is located inside Globen Arena.
It’s massive in here — and there is TONS of security — but here is our golf card ride when moving from one point to another.
Honestly, who doesn’t benefit from a little make-up?
Not Wiktoria. She is FLAWLESS. We can’t wait to hear her perform on tonight’s show.
Ooo, the show has ended and it’s several hours later, and we have some new pics for you.
We bumped into Amir while waiting for our spot to start.
And then Sergey!
And then Mr Melodifestivalen Christer Björkman.
Forty minutes into the show it was our turn to dish on the first semi-final…
Gina Dirawi is SO nice and supportive. LOVE her.
