Europe -

This year's Barbara Dex Award has been won by the Serbian group, Moje 3. Their colourful outfits gave them a landslide victory with 967 votes from the 2747 valid votes received.

The Barbara Dex Award has been annually awarded by the fan website House of Eurovision since 1997, and is a humerous award given to the worst dressed artist each year in the contest. It is named after the Belgian artist, Barbara Dex, who came last in the 1993 contest, in which she wore her own self designed (awful) dress.

Moje 3 finished well ahead of Cezar from Romania, who was a clear second with 544 votes for his voluminous black outfit, and in third place was Israel's Moran Mazor with her low cut black dress.

The full top ten from 2013:

  1. Serbia - 967 Votes
  2. Romania - 544 Votes
  3. Israel - 296 Votes
  4. Albania - 150 Votes
  5. Montenegro - 110 Votes
  6. Latvia - 79 Votes
  7. F.Y.R. Macedonia - 65 Votes
  8. Sweden - 49 Votes
  9. Belarus - 45 Votes
  10. Russia - 41 Votes

In 2012 the award was won by Rona Nishliu from Albania. A full list of previous winners can be found on the House of Eurovision website.

    But what about the Finnish dress...? Surely it would at least have been nominated report to the moderator

    I thought the Russian dress was lovely.
    I thought that Serbia could've done better if it weren't for the outfits report to the moderator

    @ furkangoth, nothing wrong with Birgit. so beautiful, as was the dress, as was Estonia's song. yes she was pregnant - about 5 months. not that she needed this dress to hide anything. she could wear it regardless. report to the moderator

    simple advice: if you overly dramatise a song, it must be in english so people understand. otherwise present it more seriously so the focus then becomes on the song and music. serbia was totally bizarre... and disappointing for a really nice song. report to the moderator

    The first place was well deserved. In one respect the costumess suited the performance of "Moje 3" - namely cheap...
    Didn't understand why Romania landed on the 2nd place when you look at the costume of the 3rd placed Israel. Let's say her dress was not very advantageous for her figure. report to the moderator

    @NicoleKidmanFreak couldn't agree with you more. Their performance at the NF was already good. Why change? All I saw wrong was that the costumes were too revealing that's why people called it 'cheap' and 'tacky'. They could've just covered it up but kept it the same then work on choreography a bit. That's it. Moje3 girls are very talented singers and are great performers but that was wasted by their director or who ever was responsible for the costume change. report to the moderator

    Yeah I voted for Serbia too. I'm very sorry about Moje3 disbanding though...but honestly that costume change from Angel & Devil into these kiddie cups was the major reason why Serbia didn't qualify. A real shame because Moje3's song this year had real potential. report to the moderator

    Well deserved! Those outfits were totally wrong.

    @ furkangoth, yes the woman from Estonia was pregnant. report to the moderator

    well, i agree, it was one of the worst outfits...but important to say here is that Moje3 did not chose these outfits....its all up to RTS to choose this including who they will contract for staging, outfits, designers etc...its unfortunate the girls could not influence this...I believe Marija Serifovic can talk more about this. RTS is not very much liked in Serbia in general and it all becomes less transparent each year...so a combination of all this must be taken into account. report to the moderator

    They looked terrible. report to the moderator

    What about Estonia? Was she pregnant? That's the only thing that can explain that dress. report to the moderator

    Moje 3 ??? Moran Mazor deserved the award for sure, with her whale dress !!! report to the moderator

    Moje3 didnt chose outfits on their own,they had designer who is working with lady gaga,aleksandra kovac and who was part of london fashion week. report to the moderator

    This is a top #3 that totally does justice to this award. In fact I somehow knew these three would end up high, or at least they should. A well-deserved Barbara Dex Award. report to the moderator
