Eurovision Song Contest, 2005

Denmark in 2nd place Stéphanie and I were watching the yearly Eurovision Song Contest yesterday, and it was a lot of fun! And let me just reveal here at the beginning that Denmark didn’t win… and neither did Switzerland… but Denmark lost to Switzerland! Grrr! :-)

At the beginning things looked really well for Denmark. Our song was quite nice and we quickly rose almost to the top of the charts. And we were ahead of Switzerland, even though they followed us closely.

Switzerland leads! But then something went wrong and suddenly Switzerland was leading the competition, to Stéphanie’s huge enjoyment! Their “Cool Vibes” song by the Vanilla Ninjas was okay, even though the text was a bit strange, containing a chorus with the text “Why did you kill me?”. I think the idea was that someone beyond the grave would talk back to some murderer?

A little later Switzerland have to leave the first place, and Denmark came ahead of Switzerland again. The score remained like that with Denmark being 5–10 points ahead of Switzerland, but then at the very end Switzerland got the maximum 12 points and jumped ahead of Denmark! (Stéphanie was jumping too… :-)

Helena Paparizou, Greece But in the end it didn’t matter — Greece won the contest with a song by Helena Paparizou. In old Greek mythologi Helena was supposed to be the most beautiful woman in the world — and the present day Helena still looks quite pretty.

I don’t remember what the song was about, but I remember that there was some lively choreography where she was lifted up in the air several times. At one point she played something that should look like violin strings while being held in the air — a bit amusing, but nice to look at.

Next year the show will be in Athens, for the first time in the history of the Eurovision Song Contest. Seen in that light, it’s only fair that Greece wins after having tried to do so in 31 years :-)

    [...] I am spending the weekend with Mikoline in Hjørring. Currently the danish selection for the eurovision song contest is running and Mikoline is watching with some interest. I suspect Martin would have watched it too, had he been in Denmark. Meanwhile I am relaxing hard and right after this I am probably going back to reading The Sage of the Seven Suns, I am currently halfway book three in the series and it has really been an enjoyable read so far, it is really great story - a well written space opera.
