Suzy Guerra Eurovision 2020 Sandro Cyprus

She’s been a popular presence on the Eurovision scene ever since she represented Portugal in 2014. But on Saturday 30 May, Suzy fell victim to an unamusing attempt to besmirch her congenial reputation.

The same day, news broke that Cyprus may not reselect its Eurovision 2020 singer Sandro in 2021. The story was widely shared online, including in the “Eurovision Song Contest – Fans Club” Facebook group. It was here that Suzy’s verified Facebook account left the following message beneath a post on the topic: “Sooo great news! He was soo bad”.

Soon enough, screenshots of the comment were circulating around social media with several websites and high profile social media accounts sharing it.

There was one big problem. The “Quero ser tua” singer was completely oblivious to the drama because she didn’t write the comment in the first place.

Suzy’s Facebook and Twitter account are hacked

When the comment eventually did come to Suzy’s attention, she was not impressed. The singer even reached out to wiwibloggs for assistance in identifying the source of the screenshots — for this was all she had seen.

It was only when we pointed her towards the original comment in the Facebook group that the Portuguese chanteuse realised that her social media accounts had been compromised.

Thankfully, Suzy was able to regain access to her Facebook and Twitter profiles without too much difficulty. And once they were back in her control, she posted the following message letting fans know that she had been hacked.

“My social media was hacked and I just found out 2 hours ago! I want everyone to know that I haven’t heard many of Eurovision 2020 entries, but I just heard Sandro’s song now (after finding and reading all the comments…and I LOVE IT! He, @sandromusic_official seems like a cool guy too. I would never make such a comment, it was an invasion of my privacy as well as image damaging as an artist. Therefore, I found out where it came from and I will find out who did.”

For any doubters, Suzy has made it perfectly clear that she would never make such a declaration about a fellow singer, especially when she had not even heard his song at the time the original comment was made.

Suzy explained her upset to wiwibloggs.

“Throughout the years, I do not speak about my colleagues’ performances. If I do ever, it’s democratically. I never criticise or be sarcastic”.

She goes on to say that she had not heard most of the 2020 songs. And she most certainly had not been familiar with either Sandro or “Running”.

“Unfortunately, because I have been working in my other job, I didn’t see this year’s Eurovision entries”.

She had openly admitted this on many previous occasions. Both in an Instagram live session with her fans and to several websites which had asked for her opinions and rankings of this year’s songs.

On the backlash which arose after the hacker’s comment, Suzy said:

“I don’t know what to do. Because everyone knows how democratic I am when I give opinions or suggestions or my favourite entries. And I’m polite about the way I speak. I would never say that. I’m a 40-year-old woman. I’ve been in the music industry since I was five. I know how to behave. I would never talk bad about an entry I have never heard. And even if I had heard, I would never state that. It’s not my personality”.

Suzy admits that she’s worried that people will think that she’s making excuses.

The whole situation has left the singer perplexed. On the hacker’s motivations, she concedes that “I don’t know what’s the goal”.

I don’t understand some of the people who still don’t believe her! I mean, think objectively: even if she would say something like that, she would definitely not say “such a great news cause it’s sooo bad”. It’s obvious another person has written it.
Think positively!
Peace!

I hate the way Eurofans always jump to the conclusion that someone is lying. For a community that’s supposed to encourage togetherness sometimes it can really be rotten. Look at it logically – Suzy is a woman known for her words, just look at her responses to this hacking. So if it really was her why on earth would she say something as boring as “Sooo great news! He was soo bad”. And why would she choose to do in a private fan group and why about one of the least talked about singers of the year. C’mon people! Also,… Read more »

As a singer and former ESC representative, she should be a lot more respectful considering she got a LOT of hate for when she beat Catarina Pereira back in 2014 and should first hand know what it feels like to receive so much criticism.

But is she not allowed to have an opinion and be allowed to express it? I think what she did was distasteful but that doesn’t detract from the fact that as a fellow fan, she is entitled to her own opinion and shouldn’t be put on a pedestal because she’s known.

What? This isn’t her opinion, a lonely hacker with nothing else in their life added it to her Facebook page

I find it hard to believe she said that. So I believe her.

If she says her accounts were hacked then we should accept this as the truth. What I do find hard to understand is that she hasn’t listened to many of the songs if any. From someone who has a close connection to Eurovision she is saying that she is working so she hasn’t seen the songs. How can anyone be that busy not to watch a couple of minutes music on YouTube over several weeks. Seems very unlikely. If it’s true then she obviously hasn’t much love for the show.

You can have love for the show even without listening to the this years songs. Like most fans, she might have been waiting for the tv shows to see and hear the songs. I know a lot of fans on another blog have said the same and when the contest was cancelled they didn’t want to hear the songs. To each their own really.

OMG this is so bad. First, the unconfirmed news about Cyprus 2021. Looking at the comments from Sunday. Poor Sandro. The broadcaster should do the right thing and make an official statement about their act for 2021. Even if that is “we’ll confirm later”. This situation is bonkers.

And the words salad in this article … Like, I do reviews and at the same time I never talk about my colleagues’ performances. Enough said.

I’m actually disappointed. It would’ve been really funny if somebody as nice as Suzy just came out and said somebody was simply “bad”. OBVIOUSLY, she didn’t write that.

It’s very easy to say your account was hacked after you say vad things and you’re getting too much negativity in retur, the backlash was huge. Especially she should not speak about it as a reprezentative who failed to qualify into the final, her song was a junk and her live performance was even worse…

How do you even actually know whether or not she was making up the whole hacking part up? I’m pretty sure this isn’t the first time a, ESC artist has had incidents like these so I don’t understand why all of a sudden at SUZY particularly it is suspicious.
