ESCToday team was live at today’s Red Carpet and Opening Ceremony event which took place in Kyiv, Ukraine! We saw first-hand the glamour and the amount of effort all the delegations have gone to for their looks tonight.
Red Carpet parade
The event kicked off today at 16:00 CET where the 42 countries as well as the 3 hosts, crossed the 265 meter long red carpet, right outside the Mariyinsky Palace. The show was broadcast online and featured a mixture of 3 different interviewers, the parade of the artists and the release of the Eurovision balloons carrying the flags of the 42 participating countries.
