eurovision song contest

WOW what a show! i really enjoyed watching the 54th European Song Contest 2009! The winner was Alexander Rybak with his magic Fairytale..i really liked him! He is from belarus and 23 years old, and his song is AWESOME. He was representing Norway, but since he is originally from Belarus (a former CCCR country) a lot of the votes from the east-countries (like Russia, Oekraine etc) went to him..and he deserved it!! My country the netherlands also gave the full 12 points to him. I also liked the russian entry very much, she was singing a song about her mother and behin her were several screens where the singer got older during the song!! I didnt understand why russia got so little points since the song was amazing!! I did not like the UK, Ukraine and was all a little too much. But Norway really deserved it!!

Check out my two favorite songs from the contest, Russia and Norway.

RUSSIA. Anastasia Prihodko- Mama (pay attention to the screens behind her)

NORWAY. Alexander Rybak- Fairytale (cutiepie!)

    I watched my first Eurovision song contest this year --and I loved it!
    Alexander was adorable! And his song was stuck in my mind for a couple of days after the event.

    I was going to cry from the Greece performance, though it took me back to the 90s so that was good. And the hosts! I only wished they'd stop making bad jokes. It hurt. Only Europe can pull it off :).

    All in all, it was amazing and I can't wait to see it next year.
