This week Music Monday makes way for Tuesday Tunes.
Why Eurovision? Because sequins. Because key changes. Because pyrotechnics, smoke machines and glitter cannons. Because dramatic mid-song costume reveals. Because that time that Ireland sent a singing turkey puppet to represent their country internationally. Because in 2011, Belarus thought it was a good idea to enter with a song called “I Love Belarus”. Because countries invariably vote for their neighbours and whoever has genocided them the fewest times. Because poorly translated lyrics. Because a middle-aged man with drag queen make up, a disco ball costume and holographic platform shoes can finish in second place. — 20nothing
