Euroclub was the place to be last night, as the stars descended for the Eurovision 2017 opening ceremony. Singers, dancers, TV hosts and mentors from 42 delegations 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.

Alma, Nathan, Jana, Brendan, Og3ne, Lucie, Jowst, Kasia – really lovely looks!

Few were over-the-top or ‘meh’, but I see that several of those with many minuses were (again) getting them on the expense of their songs, not fashion.

Definitely Belarus, France, The Netherlands, Italy, Ireland, Germany, Azerbaijan, and Estonia.

Dihaj was cool, Lindita-I don’t know what the hell she was wearing. Belgium and Denmark need to hire a new stylist. Denmark’s gown very ill-fitting. Everyone else okay.

Let me resume you the red carpet:

– 41 competitores who looked bored as hell.
– Nathan Trent was showing energy and enthusiasm for all 42 delegations.
– Horrible red carpet hosts.

Winner of the red carpet: Nathan Trent.

Alma served beauty and class, while Dihaj served style and personality. Laura served all of this. My holy trinity.

Guys,are juries on the jury night listening acts live,in stadium,or via satellite?

Aaron

Via satellite in each of their respective countries. They watch a broadcast feed from the arena similar to what we will see in the semi final broadcast on Tuesday night so they see the performances with all the rehearsed camera angles and staging as well as having a crowd too.

Everyone looked amazing!
However, from the ladies, Alma looked so elegant once again! Loved it! Laura also was stunning! This red dress slays! I also liked Artsvik, Blanche, Tamara, OG3NE and Dihaj!

Now, from the boys, I think I have a personal preference to Francesco and Imri! They both looked amazing!! I also liked Nathan, Kristian, Hovig and Robin with his beautiful white suit!

From the groups I really loved Illinca and Alex as well as Triana park! Totally nailed it!

Svala, Dihaj, Triana Park, Jowst and O.Torvald are my favorites.. They showed us some avant-garde style, while the others were so kitch and just wore “the usual”.. Some of them looked nice, like Jana, Kasia and Laura, but not enough to get my vote.. Svala and Dihaj have my respect for being unique!

And I understood from the comments on Youtube that people do not understand that she was acting, most people take her talk with Deban seriously,lol. But she has a pure heart. She was different in other interviews and was in tears when she saw her daughter on the screen.
She was a dark queen with handsome dark horse and shared some sexy photos with her guy on facebook. I hope they will do some crazy staff on the stage for tomorrow.

I’m pretty sure that Joci Papai’s jacket has something to do with gipsy culture.

There’s a live stream at eurovision.tv

Many local broadcasters provide a live stream as well.
