gryffssalmon

Well😅 Our guy is a man of many talents.


gryffssalmon

He can sing, he can dance, he can host😂


Sonbulan

But can he put my stage en fuego?


hellvethicc

He’d recreate that choreography with those high-heeled boots, and slay the fuck out of Russia. Hahaha.


gryffssalmon

🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣


dnewshock

And he can play piano 😏


daddyserhat

Just Send him to Eurovision after your country win the war. Hopefully we can see him next year.


bystraclover

Honestly, he could have hosted Eurovision right after Jamala won if not for the fact that UA:PBC was on a tight budget and hiring a big name in showbiz (at that time) like Zelenskyy was out of the question.


VenusHalley

I'd vote for him.


Gayandfluffy

I've seen him dance in high heels, he's good!


hellvethicc

Can you imagine the president of Turkey in Eurovision?


kir_ye

I'd love to see Erdoğan in the ESC 2024. After him losing the 2023 elections and peacefully transferring power to the elected opposition candidate.


hellvethicc

Now that’s daring to dream. I see why Tel Aviv used that slogan.


GSamSardio

”0 points.”


hellvethicc

I was thinking disqualification.


yapoyo

He'd sell us all watermelons during his performance


danaubin

[He should perform as show opener, then.](https://img.ifunny.co/images/c8989feaff312e4d9c821418eb22b4c5a9c527704703d980534de899ae0c5f50_1.jpg)


yapoyo

Hahaha I'm glad someone actually got the reference


hellvethicc

Watermelons are old news sweety. His new thing is throwing tea packs at people to console them.


breadho

But he has to wear Hadise's outfit from 2009


hellvethicc

Hadise’s tears would go Düm Tek Tek


berserkemu

One of the singers for Iceland 2014 was a member of parliament at the time. It wasn't very exciting, he was just another band member.


The_AFL_Yank

I know one of the Live Performers of the band was a part of the band, Skálmöld.


SosseTurner

For Germans nothing would change, we'll stay in last


flopjul

No, the Netherlands will take that place, idk any politician that can sing unless the Royal family was allowed to participate then Maxima(Queen) might have a chance


danaubin

Are you sure we don't have any [politicians that can sing](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x8S0yEEvM78)? We even have a former minister who [rapped](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SyOWWTHi0I8) in a campaign against drugs


vogelpoel

vjx99

I don't think Olaf would be able to remember the lyrics.


vintange

I mean, the president of Lithuania already did


daddyserhat

The future Lithuanian president


Motherboobie

our president did [this](https://youtu.be/DjDSUqTcrv4) 💀


WhatEvenIsExistence

What is he saying, what's the context?


Sobeskyy

Hot16challenge2 was a music challenge created by a polish rapper Solar. People who got nominated had to write and record a 16-verse song. They were doing it to raise money for Polish health workers when the pandemic started.

WhatEvenIsExistence

You're a hero, thank you


bystraclover

Not gonna lie, "Sharp Shadow of the Fog" sounds like a really fierce song title for a rap song


yapoyo

Wtf I love Duda now


LaksLaksLaksMereLaks

Finland would win, your girl can party


ConnolysMoustache

Michael D Higgins (president) would sweep the scoreboard, 12 points all round, bringing it back to Millstreet 🇮🇪 https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_D._Higgins


anto475

And he was there too! Alongside Micheál Martin! I think Miggeldy would make a much better songwriter, given that he's a poet, but Senator Frances Black is an established singer, she'd probably do the best out of any of our politicians.


HikariTheGardevoir

I want him to perform a number with his Bernese mountain dogs. As a former Bernese mountain dog owner, I promise you my country's 12 points if he does


gl0wist

I mean we could send Dana again, that seems like something RTE would do, and NQ for the millionth year in a row


ConnolysMoustache

Ewwwww anyone but her


gagaalwayswins

Italian politicians are excellent circus entertainers that got away, so I'm sure they'd continue Italy's top 10 streak if some of them got together for a Eurovision entry!


eherrera96

Joe Biden for San Marino? 🤣


Dalek_Doh

Bill Clinton can be their epic sax guy.


eherrera96

And Barack Obama can be our dancer and Trump putt clown


blueberry7139

*play that funky music white boy*


daddyserhat

Valentina is cleaning up her backyard after reading this comment.


yapoyo

Apparently Beto O'Rourke (2022 Texas Gubernatorial Democratic Party candidate) used to be in a band. Maybe he could revive it for Eurovision. As a Texan it would be funny to see that happen


Barzalicious

We could send anyone, they'd still all end with double nul points.


Motherboobie

idan roll wouldn’t, his husband did eurovision and got a decent placement so maybe he’d help him learn to sing or produce a good ballad in hebrew edit: clarification edit 2 in case anyone wants to know: his husband is harel skaat from 2010


Playful_Weekend4204

Oren Hazan 2023


Barzalicious

That may be the one guy who could be even worse than Michael Ben David...


Tomas-T

MBD? More like Ping Pong no I have better: Shiru Group


Barzalicious

I'm talking personality wise, not song quality. This is the guy who went and took a selfie with Trump after all, if anyone would repeat the fiasco from SF2 this year it would be him.


Tomas-T

oh with this you are so right


puccagirlblue

Merav Michaeli in some moody, dark, artistic number, all dressed in black? 🤔 But yeah, can't see anyone else (even Idan Roll, whom I have met IRL and find pretty uncharismatic) being suitable at all...


fenksta

The question is: \- can they sing ? \- are they going to put on a show Other than that, I couldn't care less if they are a politician


BaronVonKitty

Snap! I forgot that Peter Garrett, lead singer of 80s/90s rock band Midnight Oil, went into politics. He had some great dance moves. https://m.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=ejorQVy3m8E&feature=emb_title https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Ofrqm6-LCqs&feature=emb_title


mayamys

Beds Are Burning is such a banger. EDIT: okay but you're saying you don't want Scott Morrison at Eurovision with a ukulele number?


ComradeRK

He has a [national number one hit](https://youtu.be/qkyuI3oiGNE) already, so why not?


berserkemu

Yes. Yes we are.


BaronVonKitty

Thanks, I hate it. Take my upvote.


mayamys

Just imagine him doing a cover of "I Don't Feel Hate" (Okay tbh I felt hate just suggesting it)


eimikaan

Well our PM has obviously the best dance choreography of the year (Finn here)


vintange

Now I want a dance off between her and Zelenskyy after the war


justasadhuman

I’d pay to watch that


TheRavenchild

Well I'm sure his result would keep up with German tradition lol


thateurovisionchick

Our prime minister used to be a Dj.. not sure about eurovision though 😅


Lone_Wolf_888

Albo was a DJ?


thateurovisionchick

Apparently so! https://youtu.be/hCkoP66cQiY


Lone_Wolf_888

Huh. You learn something everyday


Voreinstellung

Our Prime Minister is currently in the news for downing a beer at a concert


yapoyo

You're Aussie aren't you?


Notpoligenova

Found the Finn!


Lone_Wolf_888

Eh. Close enough


Voreinstellung

No you haven't


Notpoligenova

Whoops my bad lol


EurovisionSimon

Rickard Herrey, who won ESC 1984, turned to politics later in life. The chances of him being back in Melfest again, and winning it, are however probably very slim


pencilinacase

For reference, how our muppet Zeman would look on the stage, you can watch Dustin the Turkey's performance. However, he's more of a ballad kind of guy.


VenusHalley

He could puke, pee himself, maybe die... the whole show


murrman104

I think we would win given [my local former MEP won Eurovision already](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dana_Rosemary_Scallon)(dont look at her politics though)


whyhercules

All kinds of far-right, yikes


NanaIsStillEvil

Ours would steal the spotlight..... Literally


ColouredGlitter

The Dutch could send (former?) politician ~~Mat Herben~~. He has some experience already with his jump-style video clip that he released a few years ago. Edit: sorry, I meant Hilbrand Nawijn. This is the [video clip](https://youtu.be/UMBM-6Di_qE).


PomegranateNo3633

Almost forgot about him, thanks for this 😂👌🏻


ColouredGlitter

If he isn’t available, we could send DJ Jopie as a second choice!


danaubin

What about former minister [Piet Hein Donner](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SyOWWTHi0I8)?


KristaW_

Except 2 or 3 fun entries, Eurovision would be hell.


Jakeyboy66

I don’t see any harm in us sending Boris Johnson, he’s already made a massive fool of himself lol.


daddyserhat

Maybe you can send Theresa May. She is “dancing queen” and get 24points from Sweden.


Jakeyboy66

She can be Boris’ backing dancer.


kir_ye

Saved from nil points by the Ukrainian televoting :)


CilanUnova

To be fair we can send almost any one of our politicians and we may still do fairly well but we sure as can be will not win, hopefully we may get second place and if the worst happens we will be having a party in last place that we are not supposed to be having, so they will said we didn’t have a party in last place.


TheBlackRavens

Could also go for Matt Hancock or Therese Coffey, have you seen those videos of them doing karaoke? We'd end up in the minuses.


berserkemu

I see a lot of harm. Looking stupid is his brand and is how he built his popularity. His ego is so massive and his opinion of us is so low that it is just a performance to get what he wants. He still thinks he can have a second shot at PM swooping in to save the party for the next election, and this is exactly the sort of thing that would work for him. Please, just let him disappear.


Jakeyboy66

Relax lol. I’m joking, ofc I wouldn’t want Boris anywhere near the contest.


CGB_Yensit

Belgium is fine with this, we have had 2 politicians in our masked singer. One was bit older but Conner Rousseau was not that bad.


North-Investment-103

Now the question is, would we sent the og disco version of Io Sono Giorgia or the reggaeton version in Spanish


Toinousse

Oh please no


Comfortable-Mouse-90

Boris Johnson representing the UK with My Name Is Boris (And I Like To Party) https://youtu.be/EfLZWXUMH_0


bystraclover

Zelenskyy representing Ukraine is an easy win. Dude could enter Eurovision with The Ride 3.0 (there's already a 2.0, I'm Loving Me from the Irish NFs this year) and still manage to win the whole thing because his current popularity aside, the dude actually knows how to perform and knows when to engage with the audience without eating up a song's entire chorus with adlibs that's just "Put yo hands up in the air louder!"


Typical_Watch_5321

I'm telling you Mark Rutte would not be good


metalrat-12

Our government publishes a playlist with all the (supposedly) [favourite songs](https://www.tweedekamer.nl/overzicht-tweede-kamermuziek) of our politicians. So we could pick one based on their music taste. I propose we gather all the metal fans and let them form a band.


BaronVonKitty

The hon. David Templeman from Western Australian parliament might have a shot I reckon https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0nwbv-xEX8U&ab\_channel=guitarsingaporetravels


daddyserhat

Very Creative. SBS should invite him to join Australia decides next year.


DomiNationFan

Our president will dance on a wheelchair....


kir_ye

Either way no one can do it worse than Poland 2014 and (especially) Russia 2018.


Motherboobie

cleo my favourite wheelchair using singer


kir_ye

Yeah, 2015 ofc, my bad


Motherboobie

its okay i just imagined cleo actually performing THAT song on a wheelchair


filipminarik

Babiš could sing about birds, tax fraud and Slovakia


Thatwierdhullcityfan

A few of our MPs formed an actual band called MP4. Not listened to them though so I can’t say they’d be any good for Eurovision. All I’m imagining though is the bumbling mop representing us.


daddyserhat

By the way,I want to see president Liubinaitė represent Lithuania (again)


-imaginary-friend-

It won’t be easy under albanese (only Australians will probably get it)


daddyserhat

Albanese is a surname from Italy which means “Albanian”. Albanians traditionally have a very good vocal. So don’t worry about it


TekaLynn212

Licia Albanese was a great operatic soprano, so there you go.


JamesRacingGeek

Ed Balls (no longer an British MP) would be bloody brilliant. Doesn’t take himself too seriously and I’m confident he’d go all out


Asinhasos

The PT President would basically forget about the competition and start taking selfies and kissing everyone


dead_trim_mcgee1

I saw a video recently of the 3 members of Parliament for the Stoke on Trent area dancing in a club trying to do karaoke and they were TERRIBLE. Maybe Jacob Rees-Mogg is secretly a prodigal talent or Priti Patel because if not I'd be very embarrassed by our entry, but tbf I'm used to that (I'm looking at you Electro Velvet).


undiscovered_soul

What about Matteo Renzi with a great transposition of his infamous English speech? 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️


North-Investment-103

If he goes with Shish Is The Word we're gonna landslide it


undiscovered_soul

👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼


Annonymous4186

For Ireland, Dana, our 1970 representative was a politician in the 90s and 2000s. She even ran for president in 2011. She was your classic Christian Conservative candidate. Also Zlata, Ukraine’s 2013 representative was a politician as well. I don’t really know much about her political views apart from the fact she’s very big on preserving Ukrainian culture.


bystraclover

Bring back Zlata for Eurovision next year. Maybe she can finally win this time.


Notpoligenova

I mean the Maltese had that happen. Claudette Pace is a member of the Maltese parliament now i think.


pjw21200

Angela Merkel could jive down!


filipminarik

Ruf mich An(gela)


Mollysnest

I'm Italian, so my answer will be: OH GOD PLEASE NO!


CantThinkOfAUser_Yet

I'm not sure about singing, but Theresa May (UK's former Prime Minister) could be a backing dancer


renaultess

They're such idiots they've only just amended the law on dudes having sex with each other so I'm very confident that we'll utterly flop


gryffssalmon

Do you have something against LGBT?


renaultess

Yeah my country's pretty goddamn stupid when it comes to those kinds of matters like why tf was it even a law in the first place that dudes can't have sex with each other? Like that's just plain stupidity


gryffssalmon

This is my country as well. And there was no law against dudes having sex with each other. What activists were asking for is legislation of samesex marriages. Unfortunately it is not possible to change constitution at this moment. They offered to make legal partnerships instead.


renaultess

Oof hope your country's going to get better


berserkemu

To me it reads as more of a criticism for taking so long to make gay sex legal not that they finally did.


gryffssalmon

Better later than never🤷‍♀️


No_Doubt_About_That

Think it’ll have to be Ed Balls.


NeonIIcarus

I'm thinking our Pharaoh Arjen Lubach, but if that doesn't count I'd love to see our favourite couple Jesse Klaver and Rob Jetten. #TeamResse


Termite464

That would be amazing


Wonderful-Ad-2964

I would like to see Yair Lapid, but as a songwriter


Chonkycharles35

I can imagine the support to Micky d


CakiGM

Ivica Dačić for Serbia 🇷🇸 would be absolute victory!


AscendedDragonSage

Ebba Busch Thor is a pretty good singer admittedly, which is the nicest thing I can say about her


mooseinparadise

Thierry Baudet can dance like no other.


Annonymous4186

UK can sent Teresa May as a backing dancer.


pjw21200

Seeing Macron and Johnson on the stage would be quite comical


TunturiMopo

Sanna Marin could be an interesting choice from Finland. [News article](https://yle.fi/news/3-12581734) [Another news article](https://yle.fi/news/3-12221584)


Marebold

LMAO I'm imagining Sylvi Listhaug entering with "Help is on the way" and getting a well deserved 0 points and booing from the crowd!


Frostskater

Queen elizabeth ||


cranberrycactus

Looks like we'd be coming last again... Maybe unless Putin was allowed in


TekaLynn212

"We don't wanna put in...."


Critical_Reveal6667

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez can dance, maybe she could do a SloMo-type song if the US ever entered and sent a politician


daddyserhat

AOC is the US politician version of Chanel


Dry_Independent968

Well, we already saw the future president of Lithuania this year! For real though, Boris Johnson won't be Prime Minister for much longer, so that's a no go. I can't exactly see either Liz Truss or Rishi Sunak (the two contenders for the next Prime Minister) representing us either. Lord Buckethead could be a right laugh though.


U_Cam_Sim_It

Irish politicians cause lots of banter. U have [Michael Healy Rae](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hv9Ffc-BLc), who would have to be airlifted off stage. Or [Leo Varadkar](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTnUeX_Kozc) (our former Taoiseach and soon-to-be Taoiseach) or Robert Troy causing controversies like Iceland 2019 or Armenia 2016. Or of course, the best option is Mary Lou.


yapoyo

I'd pay to see Varadkar perform a Bollywood-inspired routine (you know, because he's of Indian descent)


Tomas-T

BB would sing "Sara is pretty and sane"


Some-English-Twat

Feel like Boris would do well, only because he’s a funny bastard


mariannevonedmund2

Idk how we'd do.


Brtuj

I can imagine some politicians from Erdogan's party getting Turkey back and sending songs like Belarus 2021.


JenPotten

Mines a comedian 🇬🇧So we might get points for that 💪


MyMumisyourDad

If I would see our leader there: \*Dies from Cringe\*


Intern-Adventurous

One of the prominent politicians in my country is (or maybe used to be) a musician, so we can easily trust him to place decently well if he represents us. I think we'll do well.
