The Voting Is Closed

Now it’s time for Maria & Sakis to vamp a bit while the votes are counted. Sakis performed a song during the semis on Thursday. Tonight, we get a celebration of 4,000 years of Greek song.

This gives me chance to sift through the Eurovision website, where I learn that Serbia and Montenegro withdrew from the competition. Because they pulled out late, they still have to pay the participation fee.

The BBC has a story about what happened: “Serbia-Montenegro in pop song row.” Montenegro votes tomorrow on whether or not it will declare its independence from Serbia.
