The Winner Takes it All...

Yup, Helena Paparizou, a sort of Greek Beyoncé (who lives in Sweden), won with "No. 1" - I have to say the jury in MY sitting room was not terribly impressed. I was rooting for the Latvian boys (the sign language thing, does it every time, reminds me of a misspent youth spent watching VisionOn) while my fellow jurors were split between Bosnia and Serbia (typical). Anyway, all very underwhelming, and further evidence, if any were needed, of the Balkanisation of the ESC. I think it's scandalous that such Eurovision stalwarts as Ireland, the Netherlands and Italy didn't make it through. To see the scores on the board, click here and then go to the Scoreboard section. I'm going to bed.
