I must say that I totally disagree with this result! Who can seriously say that Rona had a horrible dress!  :doh: In my opinion it is very elegant dress, one of the best ones in 2012! Where are the "waterline" dresses of Greece, Cyprus, Romania and other as disgusting dresses ? Did people really think that they were better, I just ask!  :irked:

I totally agree with you! Albania was imo the best dressed and it got the BD! How insane! I also like Bulgaria that came 3rd!

Ireland, Greece, Cyprus and Romania, as you said Niko, but the worst imo was Slovenia. Because it FAILED at everything it tried to do. It was supposed to me mystical, intriguing, and it was huge, boring, pompous and definitely ugly. And it's not in the TOP 10 when even Loreen is. Esc fans are really stupid sometimes

And I totally disagree with both of you. While I love Rona with all my heart she was definitely among the worst dressed. For the first place it's a tie between Denmark and Bosnia-Herzegovina but Albania would easily be in top five for the worst dressed for me. However I was sure that Rona would win it, because the Barbara Dex Award almost always go to the weirdest outfit not to the absolute worst.  :shrug: On the other hand I'd definitely admit that the outfit and especially the hairstyle helped Rona to stand out on the night. Not in a classy way but in a campy way which has always been preferable when this contest is concerned.

But it seems that while we more or less agree musically this year, we horribly disagree fashion wise. With the exception of Ireland, all those you have mentioned negatively are among the better dressed for me this year. Well maybe not Slovenia, but even that one wouldn't make my top ten worst dressed.

Definitely no surprise and especially about the top 2, and as i said during the Eurovision week: Rona looked like an alien, and the Jedwards like the drivers of that UFO spaceship... :biggrin:

I don't think Rona's dress was that bad to be honest....I think it was more the hair thing that put people off - it did look like a giant rat's tail :doh:.  I do agree with Morgan with regards to Slovenia - the costuming was very messy IMO.
