Eurovision: Glory or Shame for Russia?

All Russian news channels are now featuring the radiant and seductive beauty Dima Bilan, a new Russian peoples hero. Have you seen him creeping there onstage? You like it?

When you realize for sure that the majority of events like Eurovision are widely popular and the masses will always hail their fake stars and this overall fakement is going to be all around for ever and ever, there might emerge thoughts of escaping, to the extent of suicide even or immersing into religion. The latter, in particular, happened to Cat Stevens, who adopted Islam and took the name of Yusuf Islam. Cat Stevens is, by the way, the real author of the song, that was miserably mimiced by our Russian pride Dima Bilan to show off at the Eurovision and win the contest! Why, have you heard that poor winning song Believe Me? Listen to it carefully and compare it to the 1970s hit Wild World, a masterpiece by Cat Stevens!

The second place of honour has also been taken by Russia in a way: Ani Lorak from Ukraine won it with the Shady lady song to the music by the notorious Russian pops star singer Philipp Kirkorov. We have so many talents in Russia today, you know

I do not feel like exposing anybody and shouting about corruption of this festival, which even good performers somehow happen to take part in from time to time. Yet, one cannot help saying one thing: Philipp Kirkorov and Dima Bilan are not Russian Music - they are just weird ghosts of Russian Music but not much of it! Believe me Believe me

By the way, come to Russia for Eurovision-2009 next spring; in addition to the contest you will see for yourself if there are bears walking the streets here in Russia.
