Licking our musical wounds......



So Eurovision has come and gone for another year. For those of you outside Europe this will mean little but the annual songfest of kitsch and high-camp is an institution. Last night was the 53rd Eurovision Song Contest, staged wonderfully by last years winner, Russia.

For a nation that provided the world with good pop music for nearly five decades it is odd that the song contest goes against type: Britain came in fifth out of 43 behind such musical giants as Norway, Iceland, Azerbaijan and Turkey. Estonia came sixth.

Both the U.K and Estonia are featured on the previous post. Do have a look if you have a few spare minutes.

Here is the winner, with the highest recorded score ever for a winning song.



What do you think?
