N O !

... Very obviously the Eurovision Songcontest has been taken over by the Eastern European countries!

Out of the 10 entries that ended up on the top ten list contesting next Saturday, 7 were from the former Eastblock. It´s crystalclear that these countries are all voting in favour of each other. Of the countries from the west, only Denmark and Norway got to be on the top 10 list. And still Israel hangs in there, even though it´s not even in Europe. I´ve never fully understood why it is in this contest at all?

Congratulations to our good neighbours, Denmark and Norway even though we here in Iceland think most of the rest of the list is very unfair, to say the least!

Grumble, grumble, hrrmp!

But of course, it´s all a game, anyway...! :)

May 20th: In todays´s paper Selma says: "Naturally one can only laugh at this outcome. But we are unbelievably satisfied with our part and we did very well on the stage. We did our best and there is nothing that I would have done differently.
The scene of the contest has changed a lot since I participated last. I don´t like it. It has turned into a CIRCUS and it´s an outrage that Iceland and the Netherlands did not reach the finals."
