Can I make a petition now to see the lovely AySel as one of the presenters of next years Eurovision. She is awesome!

Honestly though, who do we believe are likely to be the presenters of the show who will be able to speak fluent english and french?

AySel would be great I think, she looks great on stage, maybe she could have Arash and someone else with them. I wouldn't trust Safura just yet with a hosting gig, but I think she would do well in green room! I think she's funny enough that she could manage it.

I have my hopes up that Azerbaijan won't take the next two muppets as hosts. Eastern countries (Serbia, esp. Russia come to mind) tend to use supposedly funny Jacks-in-boxes who make a complete bollocks of it, whereas imo westernmore countries (Norway, Germany) go for the more dignified approach, funny, sure, jokes, sure, just not in your face, please...

Exactly,
We need a more "human" and approachable set of hosts. Someone who can be funny in any language, someone who can entertain people without trying too hard. The Norwegian and German hosts did a good job at this :)

I hope AZ does this well too :)

Gosh, I really hope they don't pick any of the former participants. Also none of the ladies who have been the spokespersons for Azerbaijan either. I'm not familiar with Azeri media at all but I'm sure there is someone more qualified than any of these, or at least one could hope there is. :)

I really hope the hosts are going to talk fluent & with a good accent. I really hated the hosts from 2004 in Turkey ; I hope Azerbaijan is going to do an awesome job & beat Turkey in hosting Eurovision. Not so difficult tbh as 2004 was one of the baddest eurovisions ever imo..

No offence against Turkey tho ; Love their songs

12th July 2011, 15:06
Do you Azeris know if someone of your celebrities can speak french? :P I hardly believe Aysel or even Safura can, even if it is pretty easy to learn I guess..

nikolay_BG
12th July 2011, 16:54
I think the hosts will have an accent. But not so big and it`ll be kinda cool accent and not so hard as the russian one. You know, most of the azeris learn 2 or even 3 languages when they are young, so they are better foreign speakers as russians...

Of course they wont speak like british people (and thank god, cause british accent is kinda annoying), but we`ll be able to understand what they are saying ;)

I like the idea for the twins tho...

About the azeri humor - IDK something about the azeri humor, but I think the jokes will be kinda lame, sorry...

From the eastern countries that hosted Eurovision, I think the best hosts were from Greece. They were kinda funny, not so serious and not pretendous and we could understand what they were saying and I think they looked good on the screen.

I actually hated the norwegian hosts - they were kinda too serious and too...sterile.

You know what, I was skeptical all the time already about the hosts because I think their English would be rubbish but why not Ell & Nikki? They're perfect!

I don't know about Nikki her English but she lives in London so she's to shame herself If she can't speak proper english.
& Ell was talking always in the interviews & he speaks very fluently American english so yeah, they're perfect!
I'd rather have this than they'd do a little Lena, I liked their entry tho but once is good enough c:

Hosts of Eurovision 2012 Eldar, Leyla and Narguiz in preparation for the show have been trained in the German city of Cologne. This morning, hosts of the competition were the guests of the programs "Yeni gun" on Ictimai TV and "Guna baxan" on ANS TV.

"Eurovision stage is very dear to me. I am very proud to be able to enter it again as a host" - said Eldar Gasimov.
"When Eldar and Nigar won, I felt a sense of pride. To be the host is not a new thing to me, I have extensive experience in front of a large audience," - said Narguiz Birk-Petersen.
"We are now working without stopping, and do not think about anything other than the competition. In a short time we became very close friends," - said Leyla.

The work on costumes and stage images of the hosts of "Eurovision-2012" is also being done now, reported eurovision.az

Seriously, did anyone not think the hosts this year were TERRIBLE? :?

Why do they have to act like this almost every year? Each year it's like a bad parody of last year. Always the same intentionally stilted way of talking, i-know-its-not-funny jokes and ridiculous "interaction", but for gods sake, why? Can't they come up with something better? They're supposed to represent the country, and the entire show for gods sake! Can't they have someone actually act dignified, OR at least funny, instead of neither?

I understand very well this is some sort of ESC tradition, but for the sake of god almighty WHY? Isn't it seriously time to break with the "tradition" of intentionally awkward and unfunny presenters?

Especially that woman in red who could barely speak English. When she tried to talk to the artists it was outright cringe inducing, something about her voice and delivery seriously made my stomach turn. They spend so much work organizing the contest, even building a giant arena this year more or less for it, yet they all have to use people who act like this to bind it all together? :shock:

They were so rehearsed and stiff. I always say, put comedians up there who have some experience in Improv, they have the tendency to come across as more natural and fun. Anke Engelke comes to mind.

The hosts were absolutely dire tonight. The "jokes" they made felt like something they came up with five minutes before the show started....they had really poor humour. They were so awkward and came across as really insincere when they were talking....just really uncomfortable to watch.

I really could go on and on about how rubbish they were...

It makes me feel like we were truly spoiled with the Norwegian and German hosts from previous years.

I only didn't like the Eldar guy, he was waaaay too stiff, like a doll...He looked uncomfortable whole evening. Woman who forgot French line was most entertaining and natural, imo. I liked her.

Can't the hosts be any more dull. Especially Nargiz and Leyla. Even Eldar looked unnatural. :evil:

The only good thing I can say about them is that they all looked amazing, Eldar was looked spectacular!

I'm sorry to say but in all the years that I watch this show, these 3 presenters delivered the worst performance of all presenters I've ever seen.

But I'm sure they're all three very kind persons (just not up to this task).

Actually I prefer this year's hosts over the Russian Semi Final hosts, especially that dude. That was just painful, I couldn't even enjoy the results cause he was soooooo pathetic.

Yeah I agree with Matt here! Worst was the guy reminded me of my next-door neighbour...

Why haven't you moved? That's a valid reason to get out of there ;)

That's the one and I only watched 1 second of the clip for the purpose of preserving my sanity.

Hmm, he's not that unpleasant as a presenter. At least he's not stiff.

He's just a bit of a ...well how do you say it. A 'Tel Sell' guy. The kind of men you see a lot in American tv shows where they try to sell you overpriced house appliances, jewelry and fitness stuff (that don't work).

Tell me about it... moving has been considered, along with other, perhaps more violent, methods of removing him from my presence! :lol:

Mozz
23rd May 2012, 02:25
Ehm, well yeah, maybe he could be draining if I'm put up with him for a longer while :? He seems to be an endless talker, and not able to notice that everybody has left the room or lost attention.

O well, I still prefer him a bit to the three I saw tonight.

I would say the Azerbaijan hosts are worse than the Russian hosts.

The Russian hosts were far more awkward, but at the very least they had some life in them.

Awful, werent they? :lol:

I can't understate how much I agree. They were an absolute shambles and can't string a sentence together between them. I hope Nargiz is doing the voting results on Saturday, she is the only one who might be able to handle it.

Worst hosts ever? Quite possibly. That interview with Valentina Monetta was just painful to watch.

I'm sorry to say but this year, the hosts speak an incredibly bad French :?

It doesn't sound natural and it's more like they recited phonetically.

Actually, I can't remember the last time there were good hosts in this haha.

I sort of liked the hosts in the final in Russia 2009.

But on the other hand, rather have boring hosts than hosts that make a whole circus and treat the contest with disrespect and make a comedy show of it.

I was also really embarrassed to hear them speaking French. And they are so liveless and boring.

Yup, the hosts are uncharismatic and speak dreadful English.

Did they speak French ? Oh, those five sentences of incomprehensible gibberish? That was French?:o

Only positive aspect: they're not trying to be overly funny like Stefan Rabb last year.

Anyhow, I think the best hosts in the last three years were Norway. That was a nice team, with a good balance between seriousness and entertainment.

They were not as bad as many people thought :D overall I think they did a good job. Still nobody can beat the Norwegian hosts! :p

I thought the hosts were "adorable" in the way that they came off as over-rehearsed and nervous. I kind of wanted to give them a hug! :D Although, there will never be a greater host than Anke!

I was OK with how they did their job. They over did it, it didn't come out as natural as they were trying to make it.

I was watching the 1990 Eurovision in Zagreb, YU. Those hosts were wonderful! Spoke great English and French and were very natural. You don't have to be funny to be a great host.
