It was Eurovision song contest time last night. Beers were drunk, tv was watched, cringeworthy songs were sung. the British entry came second from last - only Ireland did worse (and with good reason - the song was pretty dire)
I did say it was pretty dire...
The hot favourite to win was Ukraine's Vera Serdyuchka, the bastard hellspwan of Dame Edna and Elton John...(or the hellspawn of Sue Pollard and Timmy Mallet!) In the end the song came second
Possibly the most interesting song in the contest was Water by Elitsa and Stoyan, the Bulgarian entry. I think it came 6th or 7th. It did far better than the Swedish entry which I thought would be among the most successful
Okay so Ark had obviously been listening to Edison Lighthouse but I thought it had all the ingredients to go far.... In the end Eurovision 2007 was won by Serbia
So Marija Serifovic is now officially the greatest artist in Europe.... (how can I say that with a straight face???). If you are so inclined check out the official Eurovision website.
