Eurovision Song Contest 2008 - Winners!
Sadly, once the voting for the 53rd Annual Eurovision Song Contest ended, the folks in Belgrade, Serbia decided to punish us with “the best band for weddings and funerals.” My question: what did we do to deserve this? Oh lordy (pun unintended), these people make Dustin the Turkey and Verka Serduchka seem like John Lennon and Paul McCartney. And horrifically, they did more than one song. Or maybe it was one long song that just felt like it never ended.
I suppose that making us watch that mess made the usual tedious checking in of each nation with their votes less so. The rules stipulate that each country may not vote for itself so sometimes the votes tend to lean toward neighboring nations – unless of course they hate each other, like Turkey and Greece for instance. But, it’s pretty evident from the boos in the audience that this is a practice that is not only considered a cop out, but also seriously frowned upon.
And here are the final standings. Obviously I was waaay off in my predictions…
3. Greece - “Secret Combination” by Kalomira
2. Ukraine - “Shady Lady” by Ani Lorak
1. Russia - “Believe” by Dima Bilan
Wow, that barefoot guy won. But that was terrible… Maybe he can afford some shoes now.
