  • This host is awkward that she couldn't speak English fluently and she forgot most of things. I remember that there was Pedro in Lisbon last year, he was such a funny host!

  • this press conference was so bad! Eurovision is such a fake show actually...everyone is trying too hard and having some masks on. Feels like watching hunger games lool. I really appreciate Hatari for pushing the boundries and Gasper for having the guts to be so real about the situation! I bet everyone was thinking the same.

  • I don't think Slovenian couple meant to be rude. Let's be honest, it's not so easy for many of us to express our thoughts in a foreign language, that we are not fluent at. And while you think your remark sounds like a friendly joke, you can offend someone unwittingly. Don't be so strict with them, everyone has a different temperament. It's not a crime to be worried about your health more than your public image.

  • i wasn't expecting that dude from Iceland to be so hilarious , i was laughing all the time :D haha . I honestly didn't like so much the fact that the Couple from Slovenia was soo Bored . It was like they were ready to fall asleep . Could be cause they are too young ? I don't know but i mean guys . Come one . It's a press Conference . And you are so bored . The only thing that was missing was some pillows and a bed . I did like that Slovenian song , it was a nice ballad . But that boredom ?? . Oh no no no haha .Anyway . Good luck to everyone , Much love from Greece :D

    • @BagiraThatter haha true that is true haha :) . It's just that I am sure there are countries that wanted to go to the grand final and maybe they wanted this even more than Slovenia . I really lοved Slovenias song last year called Hvala Ne :D . I am sure that all of the artists were exhausted . But when you are so tired and you can make other people smile and laugh . Now that's something I really appreciate cause I myself love making other people laugh :) :)

    • Maybe.. but look at Zena, the youngest, full of energy :) yes Klemens saved this press conference, though he looks completely exhausted. And Serhat is cheerful 😁

  • Really awkward. Wrong song for Australia, lack of chairs, a hostess that is always uncomfortable and makes everyone uncomfortable. I am not really the one who enjoys writing bad comments, but please, what the hell was that?

    Raphael KaworuRaphael Kaworu3 aylar önce
  • I personally blame the presenter for poisoning the press conference with her attitude, lack of professionalism and no attention to detail. She was never on top and deserved that the artists ended the whole shame for her by standing up. Why not asking for a chair for Malawi? Why missing out the questions for Belarus and Iceland? The evil look on Hatari - is that necessary? No comment when Austria s Entry was played while Australia was about to talk? Speed up Lady!

  • Unfortunately I am embarrassed that we (Slovenia) qualified. Yes, it's a huge deal for all of us, but them having this special snowflake and downright rude attitude, it whould have been better if someone else qualified - like Portugal, Poland or Hungary. What a shame.

  • the slovenian guy? even if its true, you shouldn't say everything that comes to your mind. unless you are brain damaged or over the age of 5 or lack basic knowledge how to behave socially. people could also say the truth- that he is ugly (and lets face it his girlfriend kind of too), that their song is boring, that they are always negative and have the energy of 90 year old people. but they dont say it. I think they just shot themselves in the foot, looking like rude assholes. The Hatari guy is a moron as well, but his "music" is so bad too (unlike Slovenia), that he is not even worth mentioning.

  • The organisation is really bad: over 2 hours show, stress, work at the stage of contestens, boring questions, 2 chairs for 3 guys from Czech Republic. Applause for Klemens and Gaspar for to be a honest. Applause for Tamta, Katerine, VIctor, Kate and Nevena for professionality. Let the people some rest and have understanding

  • About Gasper: yes, there's lots of ways to express what he tried to say, but he chose those words, and since there's freedom of speech, he absolutely had the right to do so. It's a matter of understanding WHAT he wants to say, not HOW he's done so. But if you want to care more about his words rather than their meaning, have it your way Also, why would this make them lose points? I mean, was this live on national broadcasters? How many people would have watched this dreadful press conference UNTIL THE END?
