Belgrade 2008 (20.06.20)

Добро веце, Европа!

We’re off to Belgrade in sunny Serbia for the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest!

One of my personal favourites, this contest has it all – and when I say “has it all” I mean “has a load of iconic pop girlies”.

Originally won by Dima Bilan after he threw an ice rink the kitchen sink at his performance.

But could he win #EurovisionAgain?

No.

Ani Lorak snatches the crown with perennial banger Shady Lady, rising one position along with Kalomira’s Secret Combination.

The biggest winners of the fandom reevaluation are Iceland’s Euroband (a massive 11 place leap into the bronze position), Sweden’s Charlotte Perrelli (up an enormous 13 spots) plus France (+7), Finland (+6) and even the UK’s Andy Abraham (+7).

Sadly, for every bop there has to be a flop… and rather harshly Dima Bilan slumps 8 places to 9th, Georgia tumbles ten places, and show-opener Romania crashes to the bottom of the pile.
