Tonight is Eurovision Song Contest, this is a very, very, very ancient contest format, which nobody admits to having seen, but I will watch it (I always do). Unlike American Idol there are seasoned musicians, mixed with newcomers and some songs are hilariously bad, some are surprisingly good (those always lose). So you have to be very brave now. I give you Germany’s last winner (1982) and tonights German competitor here. The first one is just corny and the latter one can’t sing at all. What’s new?
Abba’s win in 1974 “Waterloo” was the beginning of a great career, however.
This is our open thread. If you move on to other topics quickly, I don’t blame you.
