Incidents[edit | edit source]

Eviction of Slayyyter[edit | edit source]

On the 18th of July 2019, former Alirian popstar "Slayyyter" had to be evicted from Katie Price's horse field as she had took to squatting underneath Katie's apple tree to escape the deadly rays of the sun. Alirian police had to remove Slayyyter from the premises as the now homeless woman was unwilling to leave and almost broke Katie Price's nose. Slayyyter was later charged with assault and treason under the City of Ir court. Slayyyter faces up to 40 years in prison with a possibility of capital punishment via stoning.

The IKEA Car Incident[edit | edit source]

On the 16th of July 2019, Alirian Engineer "Katie Price" headed to IKEA in her Fiat 500 to purchase a stage for the Zendari Song Contest which is to be hosted in her very own Horse Field however, after paying $149.99, the stage did not fit in Katie's car. Katie was left stranded in IKEA for almost 20 minutes before her brother arrived in his truck. Katie later saw a therapist and was admitted to hospital for trauma although she has now recovered and has pledged to never visit IKEA alone again so she will never have to suffer like she just had. A hotline has been opened for female survivors of being stranded at the store, please contact @officialkatieprice on instagram for more info.

Hañanian Entrant[edit | edit source]

On the 30th July 2019, it was revealed that Claire Laffut and Yseult represented Haña with their song "Nudes". However, this entrant was in the Üsmilar national selection for that edition, Smileyfestivalë 6, where it reached the superfinal and placed 2nd. The results were unknown of the national final at the time of this event, but they were soon to be revealed. Claire Laffut, was fined for representing another country by ÜTV, as it breaches the rules.
