In honor of the Eurovision final next weekend, all this week I’ll highlighting a few of my favorite entries from the past seven years.
Most years, there’s always that one song that’s the obvious winner–as soon as you heard it in the Final, you know, this is something special. 2007’s “Molitva” is no exception. The singer, Serbia’s Marija Serifovic, doesn’t use a lot of fancy choreography or flashy costumes to win – she just walks out, opens her mouth, and brings down the f-ing house.
Oh, and if you like your disco remixes served up with a side of scathing commentary on gender norms, then check out Marija’s performance at the opening of the 2008 Eurovision Grand Final.
