Each year, my sister and I traditionally watch the Eurovision Song Contest. Okay, a lot of the music you get to hear is crap, but there's no better entertainment when you're up for a quiet evening at home. Sometimes you even discover some pretty neat songs among the kitsch overload. This year's favourites of mine:

Bosnia-Herzegovina: Regina - Bistra Voda

I almost always love the Bosnian entries. They always stick to their own culture ànd manage to deliver great songs performed by amazing singers. Here are some other lovely Bosnian entries from previous Eurovision editions: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=si7Z1M3F7uk (2006) and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10Jyf9TLzzw (2008).

Malta: Chiara - What if we

A Disney-like song written by a Belgian bloke, I was especially amazed by Chiara's beautiful voice. No idea why people prefered the Icelandic ballad to this one.


  1. Because the Icelandic lady had the looks I'm afraid. Hmm, not too sure about the Bosnian entry, I did quite like Moldavia though. And I did hope for Hadise to win, she would have deserved it.

    Everytime I watch it I get annoyed by the poor quality, but I'm a sucker for the whole battle of the countries thing :) To each his own.

  2. Haha same here. I just can't resist.
