Europe Is Not Amused
Today, or tonight, depending on what part of the world you're in, the first semi-finals of Eurovision 2008 were held in Belgrade. Ten out of nineteen finalists were chosen to compete in the Finals this Saturday.
Among those who did not get through was Dustin the Turkey of Ireland.
The Turkey's entry "Irelande Douze Pointe" was a biting satire of the Eurovision Song Contests of recent years. As I said, the rest of Europe was not amused.
Here are the entries going through to the final round:
Armenia: "Qele Qele" by Sirusho
Azurbaijan: "Day After Day" by Elnur & Samir
Bosnia & Herzegovina: "Pokusaj" by Laka
Finland: "Missä Miehet Ratsastaa" by Teräsbetoni
Greece: "Secret Combination" by Kalomira
Israel: "The Fire in Your Eyes" by Boaz
Norway: "Hold On Be Strong" by Maria
Poland: "For Life" by Isis Gee
Romania: "Pe-o Margine De Lume" by Nico & Vlad
Russia: "Believe" by Dima Bilan
Along with the four nations that are always automatic finalists and last year's winning nation...
United Kingdom: "Even If" by Andy Abraham
Germany: "Disappear" by No Angels
France: "Divine" by Sébastien Tellier
Spain: "Baila El Chiki Chiki" by Rodolfo Chikilicuatre
Serbia: "Oro" by Jelena Tomašević featuring Bora Dugic
I'll be back on Thursday with the finalists from the second semi-finals.
