Dita arrives in Moscow

by Richard West-Soley 64 views

Despite rehearsing twice already, one vital ingredient has been missing from the German presentation up until today – the star attraction, Miss Dita von Teese.

Germany held a special press conference today to mark the arrival of its glamour queen, after a stand-in had to take her place during the technical rehearsals on Sunday and Monday. Dita elaborated on the show she will provide on Saturday, and explained that it will not be too risqué, but still have some spice. However, she does not consider herself to be the focal point of the German show, admitting that the song could win even without her input.

Dita confessed that the Eurovision Song Contest is completely new to her, although she is excited at the huge scale of it all – something she had not expected at all. Perhaps surprisingly, today is the first time she and Alex have met, although they will have three good opportunities to get everything together before the big night, as dress rehearsals for the final start today.
