MILKI – Accent
If there’s one thing this year’s contest was sorely missing, it was a big fun hot mess. OK so Serbia snuck up in the 11th hour and the United Kingdom had a good stab at it, but where was the sing-along, dance-along, semi-novelty, semi-folky bit of fluff we’ve come to expect year after year? Buried in the Belarussian pre-selections, that’s what!
It seemed like things were lining up nicely for Alexander Rybak’s girl group to storm to victory and get the Eurovision season off to a lively start, but alas it wasn’t to be. What a contrast this would have been in Vienna though, to ‘Time’ which was ultimately the least fun, most boring 3 minutes on the contest stage this year.
