When I read the newspaper yesterday, I almost fell of my chair !! Patricia Kaas is representing France for this 'contest'...
Well, in the 70ies, this was still a very serious thing (remember AbbA's Waterloo) - Celine Dion (I'm NOT a Dion fan, hate that woman and her music) has won it and some golden oldies like Cliff Richard, Julio Iglesias did an entry once...
Now these last few years, it seemed you had to be a turkey (Ireland last year) or a transsexual to have a good/bad publicity...Don't ask who is representing us (it will be a Wallonian/French speaking entry - next year it's the Flemish part of the country again) but when I saw that Patricia Kaas is targetting that 1st price, I'm like...come on, you know what the problem is, it's not about how good you can sing, it's all about how many votes you won't get from the Eastern countries ....They are not going to give you any extra points ...and she's already famous ....why the bother ?
My personal fav entry this year is the Dutch one ....they always take themselves SO serious and the group they are sending to Moskou on May 16th are The Toppers !
Famous for their glittery outfits and 'squeeze in the balls' high voices - they will try their luck !
They almost had a problem, as 1 of the original singers called it a day and quit the job !
Enter Jeroen van der Boom, maybe more of a hotty to some and ...how shall I put this ..?
A ladiesman ...yep !
Do you European guys/girls know the entries of your countries ?
I'll bet you don't ...
