There were some fabulous frocks on display on the Eurovision stage this year. And if you show up representing your country with a grandiose and pompous ballad it’s simply demanded of you to go for a glamourous prom dress. This can be all wrong with an up-tempo song though, and it’s basically about choosing an outfit that matches both the song and your own personal style. So why 18 year old Sieneke chose to appear on stage looking like a frumpy middle aged housewife is better left unmentioned…
Sofia Nizharadze from Georgia looked absolutely stunning on stage. Before the final the Georgian delegation went to Paris to sort out the choreography and sent Sofia on a shopping spree in Milan to find the perfect dress. This really paid off in Oslo as the whole act was a sight for sore eyes, with Sofia as the centre of attention. GEE were skeptical towards the busy gymnastics routine in the beginning, but Sofia and her crew proved us wrong and pulled the whole thing off with style and grace. Well done!
Portugal’s Filipa Azevedo was every 10 year old girl’s princess dream in her beautiful evening gown. The scenography was a real princess worthy and she was just so pretty and her vocal was flawless. She kinda deserved a ticket to the final even though GEE fell asleep twice, both at the semi-final and the final during her performance.
We did of course know beforehand that the prettiest girl in Oslo during ESC would be our very own Haddy N’jie. Regardless, we were gobsmacked from the moment we saw Haddy on stage in the first semi-final in a creation by Leila Hafzi. She filled her role as host to perfection and even though she would probably look amazing wearing a potato sack, her beautiful outfits were the icing on the cake. Haddy for President and a cherry on top of that!
