Sirusho performed slightly better then she did at the semi-finals, still sounding rather poorly though. Speaking of looks – she looked hot all right – with no idiot hairdresser messing her up as in the previous performance. Now Europe knows we really have hot girls here, which is a welcome change after sending guys two years in a row. The overall results are quite satisfactory too – for a small country to occupy the 4th place among 25 European states, it is certainly an achievement. The whole Eurovision fuss is of course rather funny – it is basically a display of political affiliations of various European states and moods of people about their neighbor countries, and of who has bigger diaspora and more migrant-workers in other European states. So all this fuss about good or bad performance is basically pointless – Russia’s Dima Bilan of course is an excellent singer and had a nice show, but few can really persuade me, that he was much better then the Israel song or the Norway. (For one thing, Israel guy definitely had the best voice and singing technique of all) Seems like, as more post-Soviet countries are joining Eurovision, Russia will start winning year after year – as its politics, that drives the vote, not the song itself. Yep, ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Soviet-Vision!!!
