Talent Show

Here's Lauren dancing at her school's talent show last Thursday. It was a talent show, not contest and was a nice family night out with a very laid-back atmosphere. There were about 45 or so acts, of which Lauren was about act 15. She choreographed the dance herself and practised in her bedroom.

A Song for Europe

It's that time of year again. Here's the song that will be representing the UK in the Eurovision Song Contest this year:

Will this song do well? I doubt it.

Politically, we don't stand a chance:
  1. Many of the Eastern European countries just vote for each other
  2. Some of the countries aren't even in Europe (I don't know what this has to do with it, but I'm just saying it anyway.)
  3. Most of Europe still haven't forgiven us for siding with Bush over Iraq
To stand a chance of winning, the UK entry has to come up with a song that is able to gain people's votes in spite of these obstacles. I doubt that this song has what it takes. My prediction is that this is good enough to prevent the "nil points" humiliation. I reckon that this will come in at about 25-30 points.
