Seemingly untouched by time or taste, with the contestants wearing spandex 'n' sequins outfits and executing variety-show dance moves that wouldn't have been out of place during ABBA's historical 1974 Eurovision number, and singing oompa-oompa songs that wouldn't sound out of place at a Russian bar mitzvah or a Gogol Bordello concert, Eurovision is truly brain-boggling television at its finest.Simon Cowell once declared the worst performers of his entire reality TV career--are representing Ireland with their fluffy electropop ditty "Lipstick." And even more excitingly, at today's Eurovision semifinal the twins prevailed, and advanced to the final showdown this weekend! Yes, fellow Jedwardians, rejoice: This Saturday, the twin terrors will compete in the Eurovision final alongside entries from Denmark, Estonia, Sweden, Austria, Azerbaijan, Finland, Hungary, Russia, France, the U.K., Germany, Spain, and Italy.
I personally predict that my boys are going to do the Emerald Isle proud when they go for the gold at the 24,000-seat Esprit Arena in Dusseldorf this weekend. At the very least, they'll undoubtedly have the best hair at Eurovision.
