Having been a 14/1 shot before her performance, Chanel’s odds have tumbled to just 10/1, leapfrogging Italy in the process. Someone else joked: “Spain absolutely winning the Eurovision thong contest.”

The 30-year-old confessed to watching and dreaming about participating in the Eurovision Song Contest since being a young child. Some reacted with fury, while others were delighted by the sexy sight. And fans are convinced they’re hoping to take the crown tonight after Chanel stripped on stage.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Chanel’s performance might be the standout of the night so far, and her odds of causing an upset in Turin have been slashed subsequently.” Chanel performed SlowMo – a Latin pop and reggaeton song, incorporating both Spanish and English lyrics. And another gagged: “It’s a song contest, not a thong contest.” Another suggested: “Spain nearly wearing a thong to distract from the bad song.” She also has a number of Spanish TV and film appearances under her belt, as well as dancing with Shakira at the 2010 MTV Europe Music Awards. One asked: “Do we really need to see her arse in a thong???? The men might love it but I’ve just had my tea.” As a teenager she began working in the musical theatre industry, where she starred in Spanish productions of The Lion King, Flashdance, The Bodyguard and Mamma Mia.

The contender has always had a passion for performing – she enrolled in dance, gymnastics, singing and acting since the age of six. SlowMo is composed by songwriters who have worked with artists such as Madonna, Black Eyed Peas, Ricky Martin, Britney Spears, Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj. One said: “Why are the Spanish women wearing thongs on stage, though? Trying to get cheap votes from horny men :S. Have some self-respect bro.”
