Post subject: t.A.T.u win 2003 Barbara Dex Award (this is bad news) Reply with quote
t.A.T.u have won the 2003 Barbara Dex Award (BDA) - an inofficial annual award given to the worst dressed singer(s) at the Eurovision Song Contest.

All in all 66 votes were received in this year's BDA voting.

Julia Volkova and Elenya Katin, the two t.A.T.u girls, beat Slovenia's Karmen Stavec to 1st position by two points with their, as eurovisionhouse.nl puts it, "we-changed-five-minutes-before-our-performance"-look." To sum up the results:

1st place: Russia - t.A.T.u
2nd place: Slovenia - Karmen Stavec
3rd place: United Kingdom - Jemini (Gemma Abbey & Chris Cromby)

The BDA was founded by humorous fans of the song contest in 1997, inspired by the 1993 Belgian entrant Barbara Dex, who appeared on stage in a transparentish and awfully looking dress. One could therefore argue that winning a BDA is a dubious honour...

From: www.esctoday.com

It's so rubbish! I think they looked really good!

haha.. thanks for this news! I think it's all fine and dandy if they get such a silly award. To me, it's just another way for t.A.T.u. to get some more attention.. if ppl do pay attention to this award. And it's not like they were wearing anything hideous at all. "oh my gosh, jeans and a t-shirt!" What a concept, maybe it'll be a trend now.. wait a minute... Wink

I'm sure that was a typo made by esctoday.com, but even so.. you can tell they meant Yulia and Lena (aka Elena). If they were referring to Katya, which I'm pretty sure they weren't as she wasn't even on the stage, her mistyped last name would be much longer.. as her name is "Katya Nachaeva"

here's another page about this awards, and you can see pics of some of the past winners..

http://www.eurovisionhouse.nl/barbaradex.htm

I'm wondering who are these "66" people who voted..

Oh how funny is that!

Sorda reminds me of the Best and Worst dressed section you see in US weekly every week... Rolleyes
t.A.T.u. were listed as a worst dressed back during the EMA's... but Britney Spears, who wears shiny rags at times is considered well dressed? Rolleyes Hmmm laugh

I thought there wardrobe wasn't bad. It might not've been flashy but it certainly wasn't horrendous.

people were prolly just upset that they didn't dress up for their li'l event ;)

angelic, here are a few links to pics of them at Eurovision:

also, if you take a look at the banner in my signature where they're wearing the "1" shirts.. that was what they wore at Eurovision contest.

1 1 --> 11 (they were contestants no. 11) and I thought that was drop dead cute.. they were dressed perfectly.. not overhyped and ugly like the rest...

cool, so I wasn't the only one who thought they wore the shirts to remind voters that they were contestant #11 Grin I think they weren't dressed formally because if they had it wouldn't make any sense with their song. The prison outfits would have been neat though. But with the "we don't care" attitude they had to maintain towards Eurovision, it was best expressed by not dressing up for them.

Well, I really like jeans on a girl. Especially tight cowboy-style jeans. Even better, when the belt area is ripped off, much like the kind Lena often sports.

So really, jeans are a good thing.

Shit, did that make sense? I'm not drunk, I swear!

well, of course they looked magnificent.. but you know what, just because they weren't dressed up, doesn't necessarily mean they dressed down either. The very casual jeans and t-shirts demonstrates that they are just normal teenagers, just real.

Eurovision people sure know how to send a positive message by awarding worst dressed to those who dress like you and me Rolleyes maybe the world would be a better a place if we all ran out and got a set of whatever it was that the turkey entry was wearing Rolleyes (I don't even remember anymore lol Tongue )

p.s. -- my references to "you" is just in general, not addressing anyone in particular

I don't really think t.A.T.u. can look bad in anything...

I hope I don't eat those words but I've seen pics of them that run the gammut (sp?) from jeans and a white t-shirt to skivvys to suits to their classic schoolgirl's outfit to mesh shirts baggy pants and awesome boots to boybeaters and jeans to...

a lot of outfits Grin ...and they have great taste for that matter...

Just because they didn't dress like turkish ho-butts doesn't mean they should be listed as worst dressed...I think they had that "we're not gonna parade ourselves like peacocks" look and they sported it rather well.

They looked great at the VMAs as well...although *rubs chin* Yulia could've done with a little less rouge...something must've happened backstage with Lena (heh) because their makeup lightened up considerably for their performance.

and WHAT about these 66 voters? I wouldn't care if they were fashion designers but leaving them plain unknown is just stupid.

I thought the girls looked average, wasn't a big deal or anything. Maybe it didn't even really matter what the award was for, Tatu is so good they always need to win something!

I loved the way they had #1 on their shirts! You don't know if it's because they ARE #1, or because both of them made up #11, which was the number of their performance! That was smart!

Yir :D

I know why tATu was voted to have the worst clothes. *snifflez*

It's just cause all those pathetic 66 voters are jealous and angry because tATu's reputation and that they are so famous. Hmh. *puts up chin in the air*

... suckers...
