Robert Rinder has delivered a scathing takedown of Flo Rida while assessing this year’s Eurovision Song Contest contestants with Lady Leshurr… and it makes for fantastic viewing.
Having missed out on our annual dose of Eurovision fabulousness last year following its cancellation due to the coronavirus pandemic, fans of the 65-year-old competition can’t wait for the 2021 festivities to begin.
Ahead of its launch in The Netherlands later this month, TV personality Robert took part in a cosy session of ‘Eurovision and Chill’ with rapper Lady Leshurr, during which the pair watched several of the music videos for artists taking part.
In an exclusive clip shared by Metro.co.uk, the Judge Rinder star explained to Lady Leshurr what Eurovision is all about, before they watched Flo Rida make a surprise appearance in one of the music videos.
After Robert told Dancing On Ice star Lady Leshurr – who had never watched Eurovision before – that it’s ‘like the EU meets the Cirque du Soleil, only a bit camper’, they then buckled up to watch Senhit from San Marino perform her tune Adrenalina alongside the Get Low rapper.
‘What? Flo Rida… on Eurovision?’ Lady Leshurr said incredulously, while Robert commented: ‘Oh my god, that’s actually Flo Rida!’

Robert then added that in his opinion, it’s ‘a bit weird’ that Flo Rida showed up.
Lady Leshurr deduced that ‘it’s definitely a money exchange’, prompting Robert to sardonically remark: ‘You mean Flo Rida didn’t wake up one morning and go, “Do you know what? My whole life all I’ve ever wanted to do is appear on Eurovision.”’
Robert couldn’t contain his gleeful laughter as Lady Leshurr outlined how Flo Rida and Senhit pairing up doesn’t seem ‘like a natural organic collaboration’.
‘They’ve been pushed together and he’s been paid a really cheque,’ the rapper noted.
Moving on, Robert and Lady Leshurr both seemed really impressed by 18-year-old Destiny from Malta, who’s perceived as the favourite to win the competition.

Germany’s ‘uplifting’ entry left Lady Leshurr smiling from ear to ear, while Moldova’s eccentric music video – which sees singer Natalia Gordienko rip a man’s face off to reveal a rainbow-coloured cake underneath – left Robert aghast.
‘That was banging!’ Lady Leshurr said, loving the visuals of the video.
‘I’m getting the vibe that to be in the Eurovision Content, you have to have very bright fluorescent colours,’ she added.
After describing Italy’s rock performance by Måneskin as ‘a winner’, comparing it to Can’t Stop by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Lady Leshurr expressed her interest in competing for the UK next year.
‘Let’s enter next year,’ Robert said, to which Lady Leshurr replied: ‘Yes, let’s get a Rob Rinder rap going on.’
‘Exactly! So you could win this!’ Robert said excitedly, with the musician echoing his sentiments by saying: ‘Yes! Come on, let’s do this!’
The Eurovision Song Contest semi-finals take place on May 18 and 20, before the final on May 22.
