Eurovision 2007

I've always loved the Eurovision song contest - ever since Bucks Fizz won for the UK way back when. By coincidence, my family was on holiday in London that summer, so I watched in wide-eyed wonder as the the girls' skirts were whipped off mid-performance to reveal supershort miniskirts.

These days Eurovision song contest is more like the "Former Russian States song contest". There has always been tactical voting i.e. Cyprus and Greece giving other 12 points; but now it's just ridiculous. All the Eastern European countries just vote for each other, so there's no hope for the UK. Not that we ever have a winning song anyway.

Anyway, it's all about the bizarre costumes and sets - who cares about the song? Mr K-E's favourite act was from Russia - kinky schoolgirls dressed in tight black dresses and long knee socks. Men are such dogs.

Greece and Turkey both had Ricky Martin wannabes. Except that Ricky Martin is sexy, while these guys were just greasy.

Serbia won, by the way.
