Eurovision: Queers wot won it

Maria Serifovic, 2007 winner for Serbia


Verka Serduchka, runner-up for Ukraine


What a night! The lezzies won it for Serbia - loved the red half hearts on femme fists made complete in fisted intimacy - and the shiny trannies nearly got it for Ukraine at No 2. But queerism alone won't do it. Pinko France and the UK looked just so out of it - so Pan pastiche Am. In the UK's case, abandon TV democracy and bring back the absolutism of Jonathan King. Only a perv can understand Eurovision.

Left to me, Georgia would have won it: best dance sound - brilliant vocals. Belarus, loved it. Bulgaria, yes. Thank God for bloc votes, Terry. Worst song: Ireland. Only thing missing was a leprechaun.

Listen to the Georgia entry: Sopho's Visionary Dream.

Get the Eurovision DVD.

Yes, the whole gender politics thing there made very refreshing viewing! And I'm totally in love with Verka Serdyuchka now. S/he's clearly a genius.

Eurovision was camp and kitsch, now it's properly queer, which is a far more conceptual state of affairs. I do like a comeback.

...wouldn't that be wonderful! How about bringing back "performance art"...

I also adored Sopho/Georgia; until I saw your blog, Madame A, I thought I was ploughing a lonely furrow (several postmortem elicited no allies). Her defeat is merely one of Eurovision's routine barbarisms, I suppose.
