I'm very excited. My Ukrainian co-worker has me convinced Russia will be the winner, though. (She's watching it through Russian television at a friend's, so that means that a Russian broadcast is available in the States...)

I've heard that very same rumour. Dima Bilan's performance is horribly over the top (though he does rip his shirt open), the ballad is sugary horror, but he's a superstar in Russia and about a dozen other eastern European countries. So he stands a very good change (I hope not though, but then again, what do I have to say about it).
I mean, the guy brings an Olympic medallist with him to skate a few rounds on a mini ice rink! If Belgium ever thought of an ice rink, we'd have brought some the neighbour's kid who can do a halfdecent pirrouette. But not the Russians, oh no! Olympic gold or nothing at all! :-)

I just checked the results of the first semis. So sorry about Belgium!!! And no Dustin the Turkey? What is this world coming to...
