SLOVENIA – Slovenia’s representatives at the Eurovision 2019 Song Contest are being heavily criticized on social networks after their stance at the press conference, where they complained about “boring questions” and air-conditioning temperature.
That guy was so happy about the results and she was laying on him like a sleepy one. Even at the press conference. What's the deal with her, seriously somebody? #Eurovision #Eurovision2019 #slovenia #pressconference

As in previous years, after the first semifinal of the Eurovision Song Contest 2019, the ten successful candidates were present in the conference room of the venue for a joint press conference. Due to the short duration, each candidate answers only two questions from the audience, and knows where in the Grand Final will act through a lottery.

At the press conference last Tuesday, representatives from Slovenia, Zala Kralj and Gašper Šantl, stood out … for the worst reasons. For being the last country to be announced as a finalist, the duo were the last to be interviewed, which made the singer “fall asleep” at various times in the statements of her colleagues.
The guy representing Slovenia… What an arrogant t**t.
In the press conference, he just said he's tired of boring questions and wants to go home.
Off you go then. There's 7 countries willing to take your spot #Eurovision

After claiming the temperature of the room, the Slovenian duo was questioned by a journalist about the order of performance in the Grand Final. Gašper Šantl does not seem to like the question, he said:
“I think it’s exactly because of boring questions like that we want to go home most of the interview time” and refusing to answer the question, which left the moderator visibly muddled.
Slovenia grew on me today, but they're sitting in the press conference moaning about the air conditioning and boring questions having just got the chance to perform in 200 million people. Be more grateful!
