    EUROVISION 2012...

    Got to have a thread for this, lol! Maybe Russia will win again?

    I support Finland (because they sing in Swedish this year), or Russia because I like that they are old ladies and wearing national costumes.
    The Swedish song is by an Arab immigrant girl who sings in English and calls herself "Lauren" (apparently her own name or a Swedish name is not cool enough..)

    Seems like this year there are some kind of regional semi finals, so everyone is up against their neighbouring countries for a spot in the finals.

    These ladies look suspiciously Asian..... are they really European? What language are they singing in?

    I wrote about "Buranovskiye Babushki" here.
    They are from the Udmurt Republic (a federal subject of Russia).
    They are Finno-Ugric people and sing in Udmurt language.
