when i think of Eurovision all i can say is: wow ! at points during this year’s Eurovision i was speechless. i was without speech. wow. i still haven’t worked out whether or not the performers are actually serious, nevertheless, they give it their absolute best & i’m happy to be entertained by their many talents! the SBS commentary was outstanding this year & the twitter feed was genius.
the winner of Eurovision 2012 was truly outstanding. a friend of mine messaged me during the performance of Loreen from Sweden,
“Sweden just does it for me. Is there something wrong with me? I want to go and download it now.”
she echoes my thoughts exactly. Loreen was a cut above the rest – she was so elegant & beautiful … the snow & the slo-mo at the end were a very very special treat !
but i must say, i keep coming back to my favourite Eurovision winner … Alexander Rybak from Norway in 2009 … check this:
Eurovision 2013 in Sweden … i’m counting down the days already !
who was your favourite performer in this year’s Eurovision?
* fact: Celine Dion was discovered when she won Eurovision 1991. wow !
** and yes… ABBA were discovered at the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest … they sang ‘Waterloo’ which I love & found it hard to believe that during the interval act on the second night of the semi’s the performers forgot the words???!!!!
