Europe: Still Some More on Eurovision

Another mini-roundup of entries on last Saturday's Eurovision Song Contest: Anegdote encourages readers to rejoice – because they “accomplished something too by watching” Serbia's winning entry on TV; Belgrade 2.0 thinks Western Europeans should set up a bloc of their own next year, to counter the votes of the existing Eastern and Central European blocs; Reluctant Dragon notes that Serbian nationalists praising Marija Serifovic would've probably attacked her had they known “she was a Gypsy or if it turned out she actually was gay”; the beatroot argues that the contest “is all about nationalisms and politics”; Illyrian Gazette has more on bloc-voting and the potential profitability of appealing “to ‘eastern’ tastes.”
