Would you run Croatia? 🏃‍♀️

Croatia’s Mia Dimšić has a definite Taylor Swift vibe, and Guilty Pleasure feels like it wouldn’t be out of place in any 2022 pop chart. In rehearsals Mia sang the whole song in English, but for the live shows she’s singing the final verse and chorus in Croatian.

Can we just take a moment to celebrate this year’s outfits? No idea if it’s the Italian influence of whether this year’s contestants are just a really stylish bunch, but there’s some seriously strong looks on the Eurovision stage this year, and we’re just getting started. Mia’s hot pink gown is entirely fabulous.
