Eurovision Style!

For those of you not in the know, Eurovision is possibly the greatest thing that mankind has ever invented. To summarize Eurovision: Eurovision is a song contest where countries from all over Europe submit a song and perform it. There are often crazy costumes, insane dancers, wind machines, flashing lights, strange instruments and occasionally flames. Anyway, I thought that it would be fun to create a post full of the most ridiculous costumes so we could laugh and enjoy the spectacle that is Eurovision.

First up is Moldova. Their entry was one of my favorites, but they ended up only placing 22nd (out of 25). Check out the sax player's neon blue pants and stunna shades! And you have to love the female singer's bizarre eye make up and metallic dress with what appears to be a blue Furby on her shoulder!

Another entry that I loved was Romania. Why yes, that IS a transparent piano and the female singer IS wearing a pleather jumpsuit. But she IS playing piano on a piano that lights on fire. And if that's not style, what is?

Next up is the entry for Azerbaijan. The singer is wearing a dress with LED lights in it. I don't know if the picture shows that too well, but there it is. Also, take note of the windmachine.

Ukraine's entry was interesting. It started with the singer wearing a black hood, she then threw it back to reveal this neutral toned dress and her crazy crazy lace up shoes. Oh and in case you couldn't tell, there was a wind machine involved.

Belarus contributed to the insanity by making their song (about metaphorical butterflies and imagination and dreams etc) into literal costumes.

Denmark was the final entry of the night and maybe I've been looking at Eurovision videos and entries for too long... because I kind of like this. I like the floaty bits and the black and the silver. I mean it is still insane, but I like it.

Finally, I should mention the winner this year, Lena from Germany. Her costume was utterly boring by Eurovision standards. But she did win. So maybe the message to future Eurovision entries is "less is more" (please let this not be true! It's not Eurovision without the insanity!).

Would you guys ever wear any of these costumes? Were there any that you loved in a weird kind of way? Isn't Eurovision the best thing ever? (And unrelated to style or fashion, which entries were your favorite?)

If you want to actually watch these performances, I would go to this youtube channel and sort the videos by date added to find HQ versions of the performances.

I know I can't vote on my own country but I have to say that this is the first year in a long time that I liked Belgium's entry.
My favourites were Albania, Iceland, Romania and Greece for the fun. Serbia was brilliant in its haircut :)

Insanity for the win :)

I loved Belgium's entry too! It was pretty much the epitome of the genre of music that I like to think of as "guy with guitar". I mean the song was actually called "Me and My Guitar", but Tom Dice was just so sweet and adorable. I couldn't help but love it.

Okay, thank you so much for this post. I feel like people have been talking about Eurovision a lot lately, but I had never seen it before. Now I have, and it's fantastic.

I think Moldova is my favorite. Digging the sax player and his rockin' sunnies. And the girl's dress is out of this world. I love her hair and crazy make-up.

Azerbaijan's entry with the light-up dress is awesome. I love that girl's hair a ridiculous amount, too.

And Ukraine's entry is so pretty, I love the crazy shoes and earthy dress. And her eye make-up is lovely.

Oh and I loved the girl from Iceland's entry. She has such gorgeous eyes, and I love the color of her dress. (:

(p.s. Kiki, I loved Belgium's entry, too. He was so cute with his little suit vest and his blue guitar. And the song is so adorable!)

He was adorable, wasn't he? My mum was like: that would be the perfect son-in-law. Too bad he's 20, better luck next time mum. hahahahhaha.

I love to watch Eurovision for all the wacky get-ups and lighting and pyrotechnics.

Great post!

I've never heard of this before but I'm loving some of the outfits. The LED lights dress is so cool! I've Katy Perry wear a dress recently that also had lights in it.
