OK, tonight is the Eurovision Song Contest. For those not familiar with this cultural delight, countries in the European Broadcasting Union submit a song and then we all vote on which is the best. There is absolutely no bias in the voting and under no circumstances do countries like Greece and Cyprus consistently give each other top marks. Never happens.
Anyway, I thought we could have a little piece of crowd-sourcing. Nominate below your favourite ever Eurovision Song from the whole history of the contest. As we get near the time of the contest I’ll produce a poll and we can then vote on which is the best.
The song MUST have been a national winner, even if it didn’t make it to the Eurovision Final (these days there are semi-finals to knock out songs before the final round).
To insert a YouTube video of your nomination, simply paste the URL into the comment form below and the video should appear when you post the comment.
So, to start us off, I nominate Verka Serduchka - Dancing, Ukraine’s entry from 2007.
It’s enough to make you want to tear up your Elizabeth Moberly book.
Come on then, what’s your favourite all-time Eurovision song contest tune?
