2016 Eurovision Contest Winner December 5, 2016

Y’all may remember last year when I posted videos from the Eurovision singing contest, which involved that bearded transvestite dude with the pretty decent voice (his name escapes me and I don’t feel like looking him up). I like the idea of the contest, where each participating country submits one act, allowing a friendly competition and a chance to get exposed to different cultures.

This year’s winner seems much more conventional, if a bit dramatic. Of course, the subject of her song probably evokes a lot of genuine emotion.

Here’s the song “1944” by Jamala from Ukraine. [A bit late (she won in May) but that just means there’s less time to wait for the 2017 contest!]

If you’re curious about the complete lineup (I think many of the competing songs were more entertaining than the winner), you can watch this compressed summary:
