Last night we invited friends over, broke out all the hummus and tasty treats, put Bruce in his best bow tie and cringe-watched the Eurovision Song Contest-while drinking lots of cocktails, of course. I love Eurovision, as it’s the perfect amount of cheesy European style singing hilarity without all the crap judging commentary that takes place in actual talent shows. Fire and novelty antics and sexy ladies and dudes, and weird lyrics, mostly in stunted English, written to attract the most votes from rival countries. While this year’s competition wasn’t the best in recent memory, it still made for a good evening of silly fun with people we love. And Austria’s bearded lady won, so how’s that for heart warming acceptance of diversity?
My personal favorite this year? Iceland and their anti-prejudice song delivered in rainbow suits, channeling OK Go. But Loreen is still my all-time favorite. Euphoria is my jam!
