I feel EBU is actually afraid of Netherlands performing as he was the one showing his reaction towards Israel! I can totally see him not singing, but asking the people to vote for Croatia during his performance. Therefore they need to eliminate him!
lmao why would he do that? :LOL: if he were to make a statement it'd deal directly with Israel/Palestine. But we don't know if that is what happened.


anyway I went through my non-Eurovision social media and I'm shocked to see how many people who normally don't care about Eurovision at all, or at best very little, are discussing the anti-Israeli protests. Especially the fact that Eden had to be transportated by the police convoy to the hotel & the fact that Greta is present at the protests. (But I'm Czech and Czechia is very pro-Israel so I don't know how representative it is of Europe in general). Edit: the Kaarija thing seems to be a big story as well

Oesterdahl is doing what Bush did during the first 24 hours after hurricane Kathrina hit New Orleans: exactly nothing.

Why he would that? For the same fact that everyone who is against Israel will vote for him, even the juries to stop this circus! So Croatia is getting all the fans love and the so called political vote too, hope it is enough! Bulgaria actually has a lot of history considering Jews. A lot! Even a history we are proud of, protecting innocent people, but I was talking to many of my friends, they are truly disgusted with Israel taking part in this contest.

If the Netherlands are disqualified and Germany finishes 25th, does that still count as last place? Asking for a friend...
With :es: in the contest :de: has a realistic chance of ending second to last.

I could see one of the qualifiers (e.g. Luxembourg) taking the last spot this year actually (or Spain, sorry Spain). When was the last time a pre-qualified country wasn't last?

Aftonbladet reports that the whole fuzz is caused by an alleged violent altercation with a woman from the TV production crew.
10 minutes ago it was a photographer ... I don't believe anything anymore at this point.
