I realize that in the U.S. the Eurovision Song Context doesn't make headlines unless the Finns show up dressed in monster costumes. But it is underway, with the final decision at the end of the May. It has everything good music, bad music (ABBA and Celine Dion are among previous winners) and political intrigue.
I'm weirdly fascinated by the entry from Moldava in 2011 and their gnome costumes and the gnome fairy on a unicycle.
But I have to tell you, this year it's the Russian entry I have fallen in love with. I want them all to be my grandmother.
