Spain has selected Lucía Pérez to represent them at Eurovision with “Que me quiten lo bailao,” which is a surprisingly decent song for Spain. It’s not brilliant, but at the very least, I won’t be dreading Spain’s entry like I usually do. Of course, it is one overenthusiastic bongo player away from being Flor-De-Lis’ “Todas as Ruas do Amor”:
(Caroline Westbrook made the same point over at Eurovision Blog.)
Jen is less… lukewarm over it. She describes Pérez’ vocal quality as “pinched.” She also pointed out that she (Pérez) looks like Jennifer Beals.
UPDATED: Nope. I am dreading this. I really find it bloody annoying.
