Eurovision 2010 - 100 Word Review

The measure of a country's commitment being not so much the effort put into the writing of the song, but the proportional discrepancy between GDP and video/show budget. Germany's cute-as-a-Dr-Who-assistant singer Lena, with her quirkcore handclaps, has been bundled into a shed for the video with fairy lights and told to shuffle, while Romania, who came 3rd, recreated Terminator via Reboot for the video, and gave us latex, operatics, Shaninda Twainlisle, fire and a double piano on the night. Other notes this year: sexy robot, cybermullets, pretty men, surprise wings and Graham Norton sneaking the odd barb under the radar.
