Eurovision 2008 - Bill's favourites for tonight

(Please see UPDATE at end)

Of course I can't vote for the British entry (pretty good, but not brilliant, though it is in my opinion), but I'm going to indulge in a little pre-competition 'plugging' of my two favourites for tonight, namely Denmark and France:



One of the lead singers is cute, one is rather 'eccentric'-looking. However, both are good cheerful songs, for me a requisite for the classic Eurovision song.

It should be a fun evening ...

PS/ Much as I like Spain, the less said about its entry this year the better; the only other song this year with which it is at all comparable (in silliness) is the entry from Ireland, which is not in the final (thank goodness). No doubt both these songs are 'ground-breaking' in their surrealistic humour, but if this is the case I have to report it's way beyond me!

UPDATE: (23.27 BST) Please see my later post with the results of the competition - won by Russia!
