The failure of Great Britain was ridiculed – and wildly commented on the social network. For example, some users only half joked that Brexit was responsible for the poor performance of Pop’s motherland.
Five days after the Eurovision Song Contest, David Frost said, “I like to take responsibility for many things.” The result from Saturday evening is not one of them.
“I will not drown in self-pity”
Jendrick Siegvert also received much criticism after his performance with his song “I Don’t Feel Hate”. Above all, the 26-year-old was ashamed of her interviews, Whom the musician “drunk” after ESC.
He wrote on Instagram a few days ago, “But it won’t be for me to sink into self-pity anymore. For me now that means I have to learn to write better songs.” Coincidentally, Italy won the ESC with rock band Menaskin.
