Line Out: Music & Nightlife

RSS icon Comments on Eurovision: decent songs about peace (or piss) and exquisite talent.


Denmark is definitely boring this year. A decent song isn't really the point, is it? Especially if it's sort of a boring, generic pop song. But maybe people like that.

I vaguely remember reading that the Georgian singer is blind. So that's something. Last year the Georgian dancers had swords, and that was pretty cool.

I find Hungary a bit boring myself, but a ballad has to be really, really fantastic for me to get into it. Normally I don't like any of them.

omg. abby, the moment i saw that georgian video i was like, that woman is blind, otherwise there is just no excuse for flailing your arms at nameless crowds. and notice when she walks off the sheet, she is holding the hand of one of the dancers.

well, disability = points right??!!?!?!

we'll see, the song is a bit dry though.

denmark is to boring really.

hangary. blech. ballads. yuck.

As I was watching the video I kept thinking "what the hell is she wearing those ugly sunglasses for", until I read her bio.
I could be rude and say blind singers at Eurovision are yet another of the vote grabbing mechanisms, but I won't because really, it generally doesn't work. I only remember Corinna May for Germany a few years back (also with a horrible song) and that didn't do much. Thankfully.
