Last quote about Eurovision

Robin Bengtsson
Congrats on your victory, I really like your song and the way you sing it, but I think your speech after winning the ESC was below the level of a true winner. Fast food' pop music can be the best thing in the world at the right place and time, so can a song beautiful as yours. There is room for everyone.feedback

The latest person who has talked about Eurovision is Lucie Jones: “I mean, if I get 'nul points', well, s**t happens. I was favourite to win the X Factor and then I got kicked out to Jedward. I just don't want to come last, really. If we get no points I'll be disappointed, but anything else is going to be a win.”.

Francesco Gabbani

Without any offence, but it has been the biggest pressure for me that I have been asked this question (about being favourite) zillions of times. But beside that, I want to be very honest about this - you embrace this experience of Eurovision with the aim of living a great adventure and not necessarily thinking of the first or second place.feedback

Lucie Jones

It is. It's unfathomably big, actually. Even in the arena it's very daunting. You can't really think about that, really.feedback

Terry Wogan

Give them a nudge, every vote counts… Oh, I do hope we get some votes tonight.feedback

Graham Norton

The band's trademark is the headphones they're wearing. Not sure what they're listening to, but it's hopefully not this.feedback

Lucie Jones

They're drinking quite a lot. It's almost like they think they're not going to perform again.feedback

Graham Norton

Oh thank you, it's so fun! It's like the gay wedding I'll never have! It's gone in my wine!feedback

Stephanie Novak

And yes, there is a war going on, but it's further, further out. And I think isn't it the whole point of Eurovision to help bring Europe together? What could be better than bringing Europe to a country that is being so affected by war at the moment and to show them what a beautiful country it is.feedback

Chris West

Eurovision, like the EEC, was born out of this passionate belief that we mustn't have another war in Europe.feedback

Yulia Samoylova

I came here today with great pleasure and great joy. It is a great honour for me to perform here on May 9, and I will try and share this joy with you.feedback

Lyudmila Dobrovolskaya

This (Eurovision) is not a song contest, this is not a contest of singers. This is a contest of politicians. We do not like such a contest.feedback

Dieter Freiling

We strongly condemn the Ukrainian authorities' decision to impose a travel ban on Julia Samoylova as we believe it thoroughly undermines the integrity and non-political nature of the Eurovision Song Contest and its mission to bring all nations together in friendly competition.feedback

Slavko Kalezic

Conchita is really in love with everything I did for Eurovision, so it is a big compliment, you know. We brought art to Eurovision and that's the big deal for everything, because like this year's Eurovision theme is 'Celebrate Diversity', I think I prepared… There is a big difference between Conchita and me, but I am a professional actor – this is my character.feedback

Oleksandr Skichko

In spite of all the problems and difficulties we can smile, dance and sing, and show we are connected with the whole of Europe. People don't know about Kiev. We have very tasty food, great entertainment, historical places of interest. And it's very cheap. You can feel like a god here with $100 in your pocket.feedback

Maria Korenyuk

Kyiv has a limited time to complete all the preparations for Eurovision. The contest's participants will come to the city in few days time. And the Grand Final will be held in Ukrainian capital on May 13.feedback

Volodymyr Antkiv

What about the metro station, it was reconstructed. But after the reconstruction the station's capacity hasn't increased, they didn't make the corridors bigger, they didn't open the third exit from the metro station that was supposed to bring passengers directly to the main arena.feedback

Ola Melzig

You can also refer to a beautiful flower arrangement (chaplet) that is a very traditional thing here, in Ukraine. But basically it's supposed to be feminine, but yet modern shape that defines our stage and makes it different from a very masculine stage that we did last year in Stockholm.feedback

Krista Siegfrids

Gay marriage is not allowed in Finland and that's wrong. I wanted to make a statement about that.feedback

Frank Dieter Freiling

We strongly condemn the Ukrainian authorities' decision to impose a travel ban on Julia Samilova as we believe it thoroughly undermines the integrity and non-political nature of the Eurovision song contest and its mission to bring all nations together in friendly competition. However, preparations continue apace for the Eurovision song contest in the host city Kiev. Our top priority remains to produce a spectacular Eurovision song contest.feedback

Jon Ola Sand

It is imperative that the Eurovision Song Contest remains free from politics and as such, due to the circumstances surrounding Julia's travel ban, we have felt it important to propose a solution that transcends such issues. We have offered Channel One Russia the opportunity for Julia to perform live via satellite as it is the EBU's intention that every broadcaster that has chosen to take part in the Eurovision Song Contest does so, as has been the case for all previous events in the contest's history.feedback

Dmitry Peskov

The decision from our point of view is absolutely unfair, it's unfortunate. And we hope all the same that it will be reconsidered.feedback

Vladimir Varfolomeyev - Ekho

For a country where people with disabilities unfortunately are treated as inferior, such a choice is unexpected. It could be a sign of changes in the state policy toward people with disabilities but that's hard to believe. Most probably Moscow wants to avoid any possible problems for its representative in Kiev (nobody will want to boo a disabled singer) or even hopes to win the contest by stirring up sympathy.feedback

Sergey Kalvarskiy

They are knowingly sending a young woman with a disability so that they can later report on the 'inhumane Ukrainians' who boo the Russian artist (if any of that happens).feedback

Anton Gerashchenko

We are not denying the Russian contestant entry to Ukraine, but also will demonstrate in public from her example that we aren't going to tolerate the violation of the Ukrainian border.feedback

Vlad Velichko - Twitter

Russia doesn't have the moral right to take part in the Eurovision contest while Russian shells are destroying our cities.feedback

Dmitry Peskov

I would not use the word 'provocation'. It (her candidacy) is the choice of a television channel, we don't see anything provocative in it. Everyone's been there. There's almost no-one who hasn't gone there. It's an international competition and the host country should follow the international rules under which the competition is run.feedback

Anton Gerashchenko

If she is used as a provocation, then we will oppose this. I don't rule out that steps could be taken by our side to bar her from entering the country. But I hope that Julie Samoylova will have the courage to refrain from participating in attempts by Russia to politically provoke Ukraine.feedback

Olena Gitlianska

The SBU is looking into the issue and will take a considered decision on her entry into Ukrainian territory.feedback

Dmitry Peskov

It's clear that one should wish to avoid any politicization of Eurovision and we believe it is absolutely unacceptable.feedback

Bjorn Ulvaeus

Appearing together? I don't think so. No. And I expect the others have answered the same thing to that question right? I hope so. Otherwise there will be headlines tomorrow.feedback

Eleonora Vecchio

They have sounds that we in Italy do not have. I spent a long time with the speakers on in the studio listening to it, I rewrote and rewrote the lyrics to see how I should pronounce them. That was quite a challenge.feedback

Anna Timofey

The atmosphere is great. Everybody is friendly and people smile at one another, we talk and share our experiences.feedback

Alexander Rybak

They are growing. They are getting more international and I think Belarus is way ahead of all the Eastern European countries. They are showing that they are ready for international.feedback

Jorge Romano

I am very happy to be here, the Belarusian people are incredible, I loved Minsk, Vitebsk is beautiful, so I am very happy.feedback

Aleksander Petrovitch Sidorenko

The city changes its aspect a lot during the festival. During the event and the festival's activities we have around 150,000 visitors.feedback

Maria Bukharova

It was so transparent. In my view it was too transparent, too obvious, and everyone understands that the real winner was our Sergey Lazarev.feedback

Sergey Lazarev

We tried so hard to represent our country in the best possible way. I think we managed. At least viewers across Europe put us first, and that's the most important.feedback

Dmytro Shchavliov

Well done! I wish her inspiration and success.This is a step forward for us, and I hope everything will work out for Ukraine like it worked out for Jamala.feedback

Dmytro Polonsky

Ukraine is celebrating, 12 years (since the country's last victory) Eurovision will be coming back to Kyiv. A big party was organised at Musafir, a Crimean Tatar restaurant opened by Crimean Tatars who moved to Kyiv from Crimea a year and a half ago. This victory is symbolic for Ukraine, as one of the favourites was Russia whose singer Sergei Lazarev finished in the top three. Jamala flies back to Kyiv this afternoon (on Sunday), and she'll be holding a huge concert in Kyiv that had been planned before her trip to Stockholm.feedback

Johar Bendjelloul

It's a play on words. It can mean simultaneous orgasm, but that's not the meaning here, after all it's a family programme, so it's about everyone coming together.feedback

Mark Rutte

Some of the people against it think it is a first step to membership, it is not. We have these association agreements with countries in middle America, in the Middle East, and they are not applying for membership. Maybe for the Eurovision song contest, but not for the European Union.feedback

Andrea Hajagos - Euronews

We're here in the media centre at the exact moment the winner is announced. Even though we weren't allowed access to the main hall, we still felt that we were among – not journalists – but real Eurovision fans.feedback

Andrea Hajagos - Euronews

The biggest applause of the night in the press centre was when Sweden overtook Russia to take the lead.feedback

Christer Björkman

Eurovision is all about Building Bridges, to get to know each others' cultures. It has grown a lot, it has become huge, from 22 countries to 40 entries! When it comes to entertainment, it is the biggest event in the world.feedback

Christer Björkman

It is built upon the same idea and aims to overcome differences. As the friendly and peaceful games, we have entertainment, fun and easy-going shows.feedback

Sietse Bakker

But I don't think we can enforce that but if it should happen it will be an organic development.feedback

Sietse Bakker

The song contest has always organically grown, sometimes a little faster than Europe, sometimes a little slower.feedback

Sietse Bakker

But I think it's really whether the broadcasters in the countries outside of Europe are interested in this song contest – only then can the song contest grow beyond the borders it has now. Now we have the one-time participation of Australia and we see increasing interest from Canada and China and if that interest grows who knows in a couple of years we would have a world song contest.feedback
