Iru and Brunette dance together
Last week, Brunette shared a clip of her dancing to Iru’s Eurovision song “Echo”. Now that the two have met at the Madrid pre-party, it’s time for a double slay. The Armenian and Georgian stars took the opportunity to dance the routine together and deliver some Caucasus region unity.(Jonathan)

TuralTuranX cover Mor ve Ötesi’s “Deli”
Even when they take a rest, TuralTuranX can’t help but sing. Whilst lying on a bed, the Azeri duo took a moment to cover Mor ve Ötesi’s “Deli” – Turkey’s entry for Eurovision 2008. They sing the chorus softly whilst strumming on an acoustic guitar. The twins note that it’s one of their all-time favourite Turkish songs. (Jonathan)

Let 3 get saucy with wiwibloggs
Here’s something you didn’t see coming. Over in Madrid, our blogger Luis got a chance to chat with Croatia’s golden tractor-driving icons Let 3 — and things got a little steamy. Damir Martinović, also known as Mrle, unbuttoned his trousers and flashed his underwear to the camera. He also teased us with a little bit of chest action. We won’t repeat what they said on their Instagram, but you can check out the caption below.
