And The Winner Is.............?
Just because an artist has failed to progress to the finals of the Eurovision, or actually win the Song Contest it does not mean that they are still not winners. What has become just as synonymous with the contest, and familiar with the fans, is the Barbera Dex award. This award has been given out to those artists that have won the worst dress artist of the year. It is named after Barbera Dex, who was Belgium's singer at the contest in 1993. Her self made dress inspired "House of Eurovision" to name it after her. Now in it's twentieth year we bring you the winner of the 2017 edition. As a clue it's the second Balkans nation to win it.
