Eurovision 2008

Monday, May 19, 2008

Welcome to Eurovision Week! Bloggers and news site are agog with the idea that the 2008 top 3 may well be the same as the 2007 top 3: namely, Serbia, Ukraine and Russia. So, let's look at last year, and see what we can learn for this year...

  • The name Maria - or variants of - is a success symbol with Marija Serivofic winning, and Greece's Yassou Maria in the Top 10.

So, for 2008, step forward this year's only Maria from Norway!

  • Turkey came in 4th with a song all about having candy.

Step up Greece's Kalomira who's come as a Quality Street.




  • Both Russia and Serbia swathed their stages in red last year - will red be the colour to watch this year?
  • Bulgaria came fifth with some dated dance music - good news for this year's lovely Icelandic entry.
  • Marija Serifovic - bless her, she's not the most conventional of lookers... step up Vania?

  • And lastly, 2007 was the year of baco-foil clad drag queen Verka Serduchka. Who will take on that mantle this year? Step forward one Charlotte Perrelli!




Enjoy Eurovision!

Hope you're having fun. Just watching the first semi-final. Is it an impression or is the arena half-empty?

Yes, the arena was half-empty for the first semi-final. Much more atmosphere in the second.

Kalomira's come as a Quality Street haha - that's the funniest thing I've heard about Kalomira, and very apt too ;-)
