I think the Russian song/act is definately marketable in the US, but they are at least singing in English. Check it out....

YouTube - Serebro - Song #1 (live) Russian Eurovision Entry 2007

But of course, the only thing thats gonna make a Moldovan pop song famous in the US is if a kid films himself miming to it with his web-cam and posts it on Youtube (I'm talking about the Numa Numa kid of course).

I can't remember a Eurovision song that I've liked; but they're not trying to appeal to my taste and I guess most entries are not trying to appeal to American 'mainstream' taste either; and why should they?

This contest is bad. But if you can put yourself in a very open minded eurovision state of mind then it can be fun. And you can learn something from every thing. If not "how to do it" then at least " how not to".
I felt that this year was a bit better then last year. The russian song was ok, (the studio version), the french song was nice, the swedish song was fine but I wish I could recall from where it was stolen, the macedonian song was original, in 7/8, that was refreshing, and some others as well.

Born in one of the ancient EU countries, and having studied for some years in some of the others, I'm a happy and proud european citizen...

..except when this kitsch and utterly embarrasing *music* contest takes place.

that day i pretend to be a fish in a human dress.

The result was a nice welcome to Serbia by European countries..After acquitting Serbia from Bosnia massacre they needed to give a sign to show that all EU countries are ready to accept Serbia among them..fuuck

At least, it wasn't a BAD cliché like UK's entry.

And that's what music should be, hilarious to see? The wining singer said something like

"I thought that music is to be heard and not to be seen"

I tend to agree.

Agreed. It was the undisputed worst of the night.

We actually had some good contestants: Justin Hawkins - former frontman of glam rock band The Darkness, former East 17 star Brian Harvey, ex-Atomic Kitten Liz McClarnon, and hip-hop group Big Brovaz. Scooch were the outsiders in the race.

No, you mis-understood. The contestants I listed were competing to be THIS year's UK entrance, but somehow we voted for Scooch to represent us.

I'm not going to get into an argument with you about best ever Eurovision - I don't even like the thing.
