Eurovision 2021 Opening Ceremony Turquoise Carpet

Forget the red carpet. Tonight at Eurovision 2021 it’s all about the Turquoise Carpet. The bold colour celebrates the Netherlands’ rich history with water — and it just happens to be in the shade of Moroccanoil, the official presenting partners of the Eurovision Song Contest.

Tonight, acts from 34 participating countries* will walk the carpet in their best Eurovision eleganza. As ever we’ll be on the carpet with our cameras to get all the fashionable tea. We will also be updating our Instagram non-stop, so keep an eye on our Stories and main feed.

We will also be live on YouTube, so be sure to tune in to wiwi.tv for live commentary.

*Please note: The acts from Poland, Iceland, Malta and Romania will not be attending this evening’s event following positive COVID-19 test results within their delegations and/or hotels. The Australian delegation did not travel to Rotterdam in light of travel restrictions.

UK:

The male host: unbelievable. Just unbelievable. “The UK is not doing so well in the Eurovision Song Contest” to James. Why could they even consider asking that in the occasion of the ceremony? Very dumb and rude question.

Fortunately, James Newman the Great – like the star he is – handled the questions very well by himself. Very dignified on his part. Not defensive. No name-dropping. No excuses. No word salad. Just an artist proud of himself, his team, their work and their country. I am so proud of him.

This rude host could go on a contest with the horrible orange carpet hosts from Tel Aviv. They all deserve to win.
And on another note, though I think Brexit was one of the stupidest things the UK has done in recent history, there is no excuse to mistreat the artist. NO EXCUSE WHATSOEVER! And that goes for any other artist from any other “problematic” country. If we start giving it legitimacy, ESC will collapse.

Given four countries were quarantining back in their hotel I thought a lot more restraint would have been shown.
I wont be surprised if other delegations have to quarantine over this week.
If it turns out that there are more positive cases it will prove that some people are a bit too relaxed and not paying proper attention.

One can kinda also see that he somehow doesn’t feel quite comfortable with all this Eurovision experience, but yeah, as I said, I kinda feel sorry for him. I wish he could’ve participated with Take me as I am cause that song had the potential to shine on the stage. You, on the other hand, is a cute song, but it’s just not… Read more »

I hope Tornike does enjoy his Eurovision experience. I’m certainly glad the 38 can all be in Rotterdam! He is obviously not a frontrunner this year but it’s impressive that he went from a harder rock song last year to this more soulful blues entry, which has a nice Joe Cocker-like quality. Considering he wrote and composed both songs himself, it must be hard to not get the reaction and response one would hope for – obviously some delegations have more resources to support their artist, develop their media training, and project the image they desire.

As body-shaming women was historically more intense and more damaging, sadly I believe that body-shaming men goes more under the radar nowadays. That might be the difference between the reactions of how James and Destiny’s unwarranted comments were treated. Still, there were some people rightfully pointing out how James should be respected too. But aside that… yeah, I can see how some people have low expectations from the some countries, and that sometimes transfers to being incredibly nitpicky when it comes to finding faults in their songs. Even in cases when other artists get a pass. I agree, it’s annoying.… Read more »

I also get why some had issues with the majority of artists not having masks, but I look at it like this: They were in a big, airy space, and not for that long time. The reporters were distancing from the artists (and aside from the main hosts, were required to weak masks). All PAs were wearing masks too. Any chance that a transmission would come that way is minimal. The only danger came from people packing together in the same delegation, but think of them like temporary members of the same household – they spend a lot of time… Read more »

It sends out completely the wrong message but I understand why most artists did what they did. I just wanted to call out Tornike because he obviously made a proactive choice, and I think it is a very commendable choice in the circumstances. He gets a lot of grief from Eurofans but it is so refreshing to see him sticking to his values, it makes me like him even more!

Of course, shout out to Tornike and some members of The Black Mamba for being additionally cautious! I probably would’ve done the same thing. Also, a smaller (but still valid) shout out to Ana, Gjon, Victoria, Vincent, and Uku for travelling alone, and distancing.
I was just trying to say that, by what I saw, the distancing was pretty okay, and that the transmission which could have happened on the carpet (fingers crossed that it didn’t), is the same one which could have happened in the hotel, as these people travelling in pack are sharing rooms.

Yes, most people were being respectful and I don’t begrudge anyone for losing themselves in what is an exciting environment after all, but I definitely felt uncomfortable at times, people were shouting, sometimes singing, which is proven to expel up to 20 times more virus into the air. We are not quite where we need to be just yet and as significant influencers it would have been nice to see a few more people take their responsibilities a bit more diligently.

I think it’s mainly because of no audience in the arena. Benny is a real performer for people, so why would he give all his energy out during rehearsals when it’s not important?

Same thing with Ukraine and DJ. Bi*ch you are here because of Kata’s voice, let her talk.

If you’ve seen their other interviews you would know that he has the best English in the band and often acts as the interpreter.

They are a group. All four of them. The middle-height blond guy is obviously the most proficient in English, so it’s okay. Kata looks like a humble person who doesn’t like overexposing anyway. I truly got the feeling that it was arranged that way.

Kirkorov, on the other hand… yeah, he feels like he’s on an ego-trip. Natalia should have been the main focus.

If you watch looklab you can see that she is obviously annoyed with him taking all the questions

No she is not, what are you talking about. He’s the only one talking because he understands English well. When other members got asked questions they could barely roll out an answer. He’s doing them a favor.

If you follow her instagram you can tell that her english is good. Pronounciation is nothing to die for but her english is good. Ihor and the other guy not so much but they are not the face of Go_A

no, Robert… the real boss is definitely Kateryna, but she is not yet fluent in English, so Taras just helps… when the interviews are in Ukrainian (I saw it many times!) Kateryna is always the main speaker of the band…

Haven’t watched any of the interviews this year so I had no idea Natalia is such a sweetheart. It’s just a shame she has that creepy Svengali-like Kirkorov
with her all the time.

Wow, that is so cute of Jendrik to include pictures in his outfit of the artists who can not attend the carpet today!

Not just now. It’s like they’re starting to hate that question, and that he hasn’t even told them what he’s doing. She doesn’t need him.

She;s hating the question even though she’s the one spreading rumours and saying that he might or he might no make it??? How unprofessional. If Flo Rida can’t make it, just say it. We have a pandemic and he needs to self isolate so he cannot attend the shows next Wednesday (rehearsals).

Didn’t she put photos of Flo Rida with question marks in that golden thingy in the 2nd rehearsal?? She enjoys the attention.

If they know, they should definitely say. Maybe his Covid results will be the decider.

But if he was coming, they would have known (tickets, accreditation, hotel, covid tests etc). He is in Miami, not Amsterdam so it’s not easy. Besides, San Marino is rehearsing on Wednesday.

Those things are probably in place, they’re literally just waiting on him to get on a plane. He gets an exemption from quarantine so he can still fly in, it just seems like he hasn’t bothered to tell them if he intends to.

How can he be exempted from quarantine when he’s flying from Miami and not from a city in Netherlands? He has to follow the standard guidelines for covid quarantine just like everyone. On top of that, the rehearsal is on Wednesday so they must know tomorrow at the latest if he is coming.
