Sébastien Tellier at Eurovision!

Last night, watching the musical diarrhoea that is Eurovision I had a massive, pleasant surprise! France’s entry was no other than the brilliant Sébastien Tellier with the appropriately named Divine. A wonderfully tasteful tune, with just the right amount of humour, but clearly not tacky or crap enough to win or even score well. Europe: you have no taste!

It’s a brave move for an established and acclaimed artist, especially as Divine features on Tellier’s recent LP, Sexuality. Perhaps even more brave was the fact that the Frenchman sung in English… It also represents a possible change in strategy for the otherwise floundering Western European nations: do they try and use big name artists like France, or just throw in the towel and not turn up like Austria.

This year’s worst: Spain and Bosnia-Herzogovina!

    … you’re right! sébastian tellier was awesome … and awesome, too, was the background choir. look at the suits! and the beards! reminded me of PEACHES album cover FATHERFUCKER.
    … but, i have to confess: i liked bosnien.herzegowina, too! that was so weird. completely weird!

  2. sebastien was incredible and europe is just a kip. russia greece and ukraine were all appalling.makes sense that they were the top 3.its eurovision after all.
