Live marriage proposal on Eurovision semi-final as Ireland crashes out


MACEDONIA’S Eurovision entrant was surprised with a marriage proposal during the semi-final in Kiev.

Jana Burceska, who revealed she was pregnant during a live interview in the voting stages, was elated when father of her child, Alexander, dropped to one knee.

“I was waiting for the right moment. I love you very much. Would you marry me?” he said.


A shocked Jana squeaked: “Yes!” with the audience erupting into huge cheers as Alexander presented her with a ring.

Not all left Kiev with a smile on their face, as Ireland failed to qualify for the Eurovision final for the fourth year running.

Brendan Murray was unable to impress with his ballad ‘Dying to Try.’

The UK’s Lucie Jones has made it to the final despite fears of a Brexit backlash.
