God does not love Silvia
So, inspite of all the hype and noise, Silvia Night did not make it through to the Eurovison finals. And (gasp!) Lithuania did. In the UK, we’ve long joked about the block voting that seems to occur within Eastern Europe, and this is clearly a result, as frankly, the song is crap.
I watched Silvia’s performance and I don’t think she did herself any favours; it was a bit too camp and she came across as a bit pretentious and squeaky. I few less Aqua impressions and a bit more vocal training (oh, and no slagging off the host country – even in jest – humour does not travel well) and we could have been seeing on her Saturday.
