“In a moment like this, wanna know, wanna know, wanna know what you’re looking for, wanna know, wanna know, wanna know that you’ll ask for more in a moment like this…”
It’s that time of year again – the Eurovision Song Contest final. Twenty-five countries taking part in Europe’s biggest event (which this year takes place in Norway) and twenty-five artists making fools of themselves on stage in the name of entertainment to see which one is the best. This year is no different. Italy haven’t competed since around 1997, The Netherlands didn’t make the final for the sixth year in a row, Ireland and Belgium made the finals for the first time in years and the United Kingdom’s song is rubbish.
My favourite to win, however, is Denmark (can you tell?). They had problems from start to finish in rehearsals (they had tuning problems, were tone deaf and didn’t really connect with each other at all) so critics expected them to not go through to the final but, when their name was read out last, everyone was a bit shocked. Sweden never made it but Denmark did it with a song that was rejected by the Swedes two years ago so I hope they do well tonight. They’re performing last as well which helps.
VOTE DENMARK, PEOPLE OF EUROPE! Don’t bother voting for the United Kingdom – we’ll only come last anyway!
