Eurovision scandal

March 16th, 2009

With only two months until this years’ kitsch extranvaganza that is the Eurovision Song Contest, anastasia-prikhodkopolitics are already starting to enter the competition as the Russian jury choose their entry.  Eurovision is taken very seriously there and there was outrage as the singer chosen to represent them, Anastasia Prikhodko is Ukranian and sings the song in Ukranian. “A song performed in Ukrainian can’t have anything to do with Russia,” screamed Yusif Prigozhin, the angry producer for the act placed second by the Moscow jury. “Why don’t we then invite Dynamo Kiev to play for Russia,” he raged.  The jury maintain, the message is “Look! We’re nice and gentle and politically correct.”
