On 29th May 2010 millions of viewers settled down in front of their televisions to laugh at marvel at the acts on this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Oslo, Norway.
I usually try to avoid this, the cheesiest event of the 2010, like the plague but this year I watched from beginning to end, from the Opa! song of Greece (which I secretly now love) to the ‘80s electro from Moldova.
I will now tell you what exactly kept my eyes glued to the screen for hours, enduring hours of false smiles and quivering notes; it was the very first act to perfom Safura of Azerbaijan. Not only was her voice actually quite impressive, she was wearing a fashionology favourite – an LED dress, made by Cute Circuit!
This amazing blue and green dress with an elegant train was fitted with the very same LED devices that set Katy Perry alight on the red carpet just weeks before.
As I continued to watch, hoping for more techno-fashion surprises, I was not disappointed. When the act from Belarus, 3+2, performed their song ‘Butterflies’ the audience was wowed (either by the sheer tackiness, or by genuine awe) at the butterfly wings that spontaneously sprouted from the gold, silver and bronze gowns of the female singers.
Yes a little OTT I know, but it was still amazing to see these acts embracing the wonders of Fashionology! Roll on Eurovision 2011!
