My diaspora's bigger than yours...


Marija Serifovic (the one on the right) will be singing a dreary old ballad for Serbia in Helsinki. And in some polls, her sleep-inducing effort is tipped to be a front runner. I hope not, because it's so plodding and dull that I almost slipped into a coma when I tried to listen to the whole thing.

Even more worrying than that, in order to manipulate the voting, it appears that she'll be relying on Serb televoters living outside Serbia to phone in and vote for her. I read at doteurovision today that apparently a Serbian government official has called on Serb televoters outside the country to call in and support her, regardless of what the other songs are like. According to doteurovision, Marija "thanked the minister for his support".

In my opinion, this is exactly what Eurovision doesn't need. It's supposed to be a song and performance contest. Not a "my diaspora's bigger than yours" contest. And neighbourly voting doesn't need any encouragement anyway, it's already thriving. Good grief, whatever happened to good old British notions of fair play and simply voting for the best song on the night, rather than blindly voting on the basis of nationality!

Having read this news, I definitely won't be voting for this entry. In fact, you could stick a thumping electro beat behind it, make her sing three times faster, add a key change and a cheesy dance routine, and I still wouldn't vote for her.

darling, if wonder if she's taught the puppy how to lick out pussy - it'd be all she can get

Your "the one on the right" comment has just sent me into fits of laughter. At work. Thanks!

I felt it was only right to point her out in the name of accuracy.

It would be all too easy for readers to get the two mixed up.

you've got a very bad opinion on marija's song. You should listen it more than once!
I will vote for her just because it's the best song...

It's not just the song, it's the attempt to manipulate voting by calling on your ex-pats to vote. That's against the spirit of Eurovision!

Ex-pats will vote for Marija anyway!
But do you think that it's fair play to get a place in finale with a very bad song like "Flying the Flag" just because UK is high contributor for ESC?
(even if you don't like marija's song... I like your Blog!)
