I am very excited about this legislation, and I'm happy to see that it is being passed. However, Sharia law does not allow dancing. It is forbidden by international law to perform it on a public ground, although it is prohibited and still considered illegal under International Penal Code.
What other countries do you support?

), and this law is extremely concerning to us.
Did you feel that Saudi Arabia, Iran or Azerbaijan should not be able to legally join the Eurovision Song Contest?
I am not entirely sure what these people would do, but they would be great. In some countries they can not join Eurovision Song Contest; in others they can join up! So, this law has huge implications for me. If we look at this at the national
level, it's not that it is against the spirit of Eurovision (which has a long history in the West). It is against the spirit of Europe, and we welcome in our host country the competition so that we can share our cultural diversity.
How are people reacting?

I don't know a lot about what people are responding in the UK; I am sure a lot are shocked by the fact that we don't have an actual Eurovision Song Contest. But it makes for great news for those of us who understand the cultural side of Eurovision because these events can also become a huge success.
Did you enjoy your performance in the Eurovision Song Contest?
I enjoyed the fact that I was able to showcase the power of music. It has given us a bit more energy, and I think that's been a big success for the people. I think that you have also been able to get a lot of attention for what music should be able to offer a performer. Music can get them more attention, and it can change the game very quickly.
Are you happy with your performance this year? Are you proud to be able to say 'Yes!'
It's nice to be able to say yes. I hope that we can keep dancing as long as the Eurovision Song Contest is an event for fans to enjoy.
Has the Eurovision Song Contest become a source of inspiration? Do you think it should?
I am really pleased to know that people are showing their appreciation of Eurovision because they are more prepared for their country to
