What do a trampoline, child abuse, a bearded lady (or a man in a dress), a roller skater, a government representative and two sets of twins have in common? Well, Eurovision of course!! And on Saturday it was time again for the annual music fest.
This year I had watched a preview show, both semi finals and of course the final. During the preview show I saw all songs and was quite shocked at one, quite pleased with others and had made my mind up: Iceland and the Netherlands were my favourites. The semi-finals added a third favourite: Austria.
Well, the Netherlands did quite well. In fact they got the top marks from seven or eight countries! I was screaming and shouting and being very very proud. They ended up in second place! Which was deserved. Because number one in my mind and apparently in Europe's mind was Conchita Wurst from Austria. A man in a dress and a full beard. And a fantastic song.
So, next year it's off to Austria. I wonder what songs are in store for us then!
