We are pretty sure (final decision TBC) that our favourite Eurovision song this year is Sweden's entry — 'Popular' by Eric Saade, the second half of which may, come Pop Judgement Day, be recognised as the most ludicrous minute and a half in the history of all recorded song.
There is now a video which a) is not very well lit although maybe that's our monitor, b) contains some bits that aren't quite as exciting as the music they are soundtracking (yes, 'bit in the photo studio with the flourescent tube lighting' we are looking at you), c) includes a not-really-very-necessary 'narrative'. This said, as with the song itself, the second half is extremely exciting.
Here's the whole thing. Feel free to start it at around the 1:30 mark, thus cutting straight to the epicness.[youtube]Hl6hkgVlscA[/youtube]
Blue's chances still aren't looking very good are they. [youtube]hPuDbaOBDsc[/youtube]
Jesus Christ. Actually to be fair it seems a bit better with some classic Blue seriousface going on but still, Jesus Christ.
