What I find most annoying is the people who automatically use the words "amazing" and "grateful" when asked about their experiences. I like to see some personality at least.
Salvador is a very ungrateful winner. I don't mind it, because at least he was usually polite and didn't answer a question saying it was so boring that it made him want to go home or complained about air conditioning when asked about how he felt making it to the final. I agree that showing personality is nice instead of being fake happy all the time, but the Slovenians were just spoiled IMO.

I used to hate this entry so much... but then I saw some interviews and stuff with those guys and I started to understand more about them. Now they're almost my biggest faves. Plus imagine if they win, all those crazed nationalists from Israel will most likely blow a vein
Agree here, you need to listen to Czech entry on headphones ... it's finally quite an intelligent indie pop mixed with funky ... a bass line and funky guitar of that song are underrated ... definitely most natural entry of the night. They made the show with great dance vibe and own the audience without any gimmicks, trashy costumes or all that Eurovision staff. If "We love karaoke" team of Eurovision allows them to play the instruments live it would be even better, I know they were quite disappointed they are not allowed to play their music live.

SF 2 is so packed I can see one or two pre-show favourite flame out.

Hopefully one of Macedonia, Albania or Latvia squeaks in.

Slovenia’s Zala and Gašper don’t seem too happy to be at Eurovision as they’re blasted for ‘rude’ interview


Zala Kralj and Gašper Šantl have been called out for their ‘rude’ responses to journalists after qualifying for the final in the first semi-final on Tuesday night. The duo, who are a real-life couple, were seated at the end of the qualifiers’ table, having been announced last as being through to the final – so when it came to questions for all of the 10 acts, they had a bit of waiting to do to get to their turn. But it seemed like they didn’t really want to answer anything. One journalist asked all 10 acts in what slot they would prefer to perform in the final, and Zala and Gašper seemed very uninspired. When the question came to them, Gašper, with his arm around Zala, said: ‘Well, um, I think it’s exactly boring questions like that why we want to go home most of the time during interviews. So… I don’t know.’ There was an awkward murmur in the crowd as the moderator said: ‘Right, it’s ok.’

However, the rest of the delegations seemed rather annoyed by Slovenia’s response, as a member of the Estonian team said: ‘We want to thank the press’, with a number of acts giving the press in the room a standing ovation. Eurovision fans watching the live stream called out Gašper and Zala’s attitudes on social media, branding them ungrateful and rude.

This makes me not cheer for them as much as I was before. It's understandable that they were tired, but they knew that they will be questioned by journalists after the show. Every country is doing that.

But interesting thing is that they are on best terms with Iceland and San Marino.

I love how peasants always get exposed by being pressed at ESC contestants. King Salvador in 2017 owned their entitled asses with his glorious spectacular win. Now based legends Xala & Gasper continue slaying what's left of those poor insecure souls.

I've seen many interviews with them and always enjoyed how awkward they were. But I agree that his statement there was quite rude and I felt very uncomfortable watching that. Don't know if he was trying to be funny or something.

The whole press conference was a mess though so I lowkey understand that some artists reacted the way they did. It's not like Hatari or Serhat gave much better answers to that question. The host had no idea what she was talking about and of course they played Austria's song when Australia was questioned.

In Australia they are only now showing SF1.
That was the replay. SF1 was shown live 5 am Wednesday morning.

Armenia, she can sing that's for sure, but there is too much everything in this song.
