The show's over for another year and ... well, what can I say? The best bits were Zlata Ognevich. It's no secret I'm not a big fan of this contest but I try to listen and watch it in a way "would I enjoy listening this song once the TV cameras are off" and in this category I would still only put Russia and San Marino. Ukraine and Belarus would come close and no doubt Gaia from Malta has a big voice but the song gives me nothing. This said, it was kind of refreshing the victory went to somewhere else than the ex-Soviets for awhile, for the second time in the past 9 years....Emmelie was there, too.
PS. If you wann see 8-year-old Gaia belt out Tina Turner's Proud Mary, click here.
