I don't know if any of our European members watch the Eurovision. The contest could be quite a disappointment, the songs pathetic, the performances kitchy. This year I happened to have the TV on on Thursday and watched most of the half-final. I wasn't planning to watch at all, but all of a sudden there appeared some really nice songs and kept watching to the end. Last year's winner, Ukranian superstar Ruslana, had a nice, fast-paced song with themes from the Hutsul floklore. Probably because of her success many of the songs from East Europe this year also combine pop with indigenous music and with very nice results.
I liked especially the guys from Moldova and Hungary. Chanahari, are you familiar with the Hungarian group? Their leading singer could very well be the next Ruslana. She is an amazing singer and dancer.
