The beautiful Emmelie DeForrest sang “Only Teardrops” to lead Denmark to victory in the annual song writing and over wrought singing competition.
It seems to this outside observer that the title every year goes to the performer who over emotes the most. Am I wrong?
And you have to love the “Hamlet” haircut on the dude playing the penny whistle or recorder or whatever that thing is…It goes with the whole “Ophelia” look Emmelie’s adopted. All we need is Laertes and a skull.
Idea! Since American Idol is on the ropes, why don’t we have a state song competition here in the States? Each state offers up an original song, sung by a name artist from their state, and the viewers pay exorbitant rates to decide who has the best song. Who’s with me?
