Jade Ewen Eurovision Prospects Alongside Dita Von Teese
|It's the Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday and the UK's singer, Jade Ewen, has been talking about her chances of winning. Well, actually, she wants to win and expects to win!|
Jade said, "I am in it to win it. I think of Eurovision in the way that an athlete gets psyched up for a race, by going for first place. Nobody with a real competatve edge thinks, 'Oh, I'll settle for fifth, or maybe even somewhere in the top ten would be good. No, you have to have your eyes on the prize.'"
A fine sentiment but the bookies don't seem to agree. At the time of writing the favourite is Norway - evens, followed by Greece 5/1, Turkey 9/1 and then the UK and Jade are next, along with Azerbaijan, at 12/1.
As we know, over the past few years, Eurovision has been a farce with political voting instead of votes for the best song. If this continues poor old Jade doesn't stand a cat in hells chance of winning - but you never know, what with the Lloyd-Webber influence.
Lots of countries aren't taking it too seriously, Germany for example have Marilyn Manson's ex wife and Dita Von Teese performing alongside their entry. Ms. Von Teese seems somewhat confused as she keeps calling Eurovision the 'Moscow Grand Prix.'
Mind you it's best to be zonked out when watching Eurovision. But being English, I mean British, I wish Jade well.
