|Rotterdam 2020 - Iceland: Douze Points|
In the overall scheme of things the fact that a cheesy talent show due to be held in the Netherlands had to be cancelled is neither here nor there. With worldwide deaths pushing half a million it's nothing more than a mere annoyance that our lives have temporarily been put on hold; if you're still this side of the grass you can count yourself as one of the lucky ones. Also, as Brits we've probably had our fill of European vote based shenanigans.
However, had Eurovision 2020 taken place in Rotterdam last month then, in my humble opinion, I think it would have been a one horse race. I say this purely because the Iceland entry was a banger. It would have been both the judges and viewers 12 pointer and wiped the floor with any and all Boom-Bang-a-Bangs in its wake. No ifs. No buts. No maybes.

Well, well, what a surprise - This has been a much-watched clip in our house of late and I know had DD been at home, we would have put together a video clip of us dancing along (in our green tracksuits). We even teased her that it was practically a line-up of her school posse - A fantastic but eclectic bunch of souls.ReplyDelete
I wrote about Eurovision a couple of weeks ago and enjoyed what they aired instead, but as you say, in the grand scheme of things, not that important. Shame they can't re-enter next year but apparently not possible - As you suggest, I reckon they would have been sure-fire winners.
There have been many parodies, I know. One more wouldn't do any harm. Can't you engineer a Zoom version? I'll bung another tenner in the NHS bucket if you can!Delete
That's a terrific Michael Bolton look the singer does at 25 seconds into the video. Better than the great man himself.ReplyDelete
The whole thing is terrific, is it not? 'And anyway, the palindrome of Bolton is Notlob; it don't work.' Sorry, George. I find myself doing that anytime I hear the word Bolton.Delete
