11:00 – The organizers of Eurovision 2024 have prepared a surprise for the audience – they want to honor the Swedish band ABBA, whose song "Waterloo" is recognized as the best in the history of the music contest. 50 years ago, Sweden won the Eurovision Song Contest with this song. Fans speculate that ABBA may appear in a virtual form, as it happens at the ABBA Voyage concerts in London.

09:21 – Singer alyona alyona put critics in their place with a catchy phrase after falling on the Eurovision 2024 stage. The rapper, who did not lose her cool, managed to get up and start her performance without delay, saying that every Ukrainian woman would do the same.
