It’s the morning after the night before. And last night just happened to be Halloween, the spookiest date on the calendar.
As we reported yesterday, plenty of Eurovision and national final alums rose to the challenge. We had Iceland’s Greta Salóme as Maleficent, Norway’s JOWST as the Joker and Malta’s Amber as Wednesday Addams. Former Israeli national finalist Judah Gavra went above the cause and dressed up twice — first as a muscle-flexing bunny rabbit and then later as a half naked clown… if you got it flaunt it!
But over the course of the evening, even more song contest singers came out in full costume. We’re pleased to say that their sartorial trickery went down a treat. Here are some of the best.
Il Volo’s Piero Barone (Italy Eurovision 2015)
Emmelie de Forest (Denmark 2013)
Claudia Faniello (Malta 2017)
Zoë Straub (Austria 2016)
Getter Jaani (Estonia 2011)
Conchita Wurst (Austria 2014)
Ilinca (Romania 2017)
Cleo (Poland 2014)
Nathan Trent (Austria 2017)
Yes, we know it’s a filter. Spooky nonetheless.

Kurt Calleja (Malta 2012)

um but why would europeans celebrate Halloween?
great question…its nonsense…
Halloween started in Europe. It was first celebrated by the Celts in Ireland as the festival of Samhain. That’s why… also, because it’s fun.
Who are those girls with Piero Barone? He said four years ago that he is always single, but never alone.
Those are the Palazzolo sisters, they’re old friends and they use to hang out with him and the boys quite often.
What happened to the beautiful Emmelie de Forest? She had a beautiful blonde hair, now she’s a brunette… Unfortunately, that horrible hairstyle is not made for Halloween…. A big plus for Claudia Faniello’s dramatic weight loss and to Elena Gheorghe’s amazing Halloween image. The rest are….meh
Emmelie doesn’t look good with bangs, Jamie Lee does, but this is not so important. I worry about Claudia Faniello weight loss, because in the past she was in depression six years because of that. Is she blaming her body for not qualifying?
Some are dressed as themselves or like for a masquerade ball.
Jamie Lee remembers me of the movie Sinister with Ethan Hawke where the youngest of the family, because is more fragile, is most easy to be possessed by the devil.
