Eurovision Challenge: Day 15
The best costume
Linda Wagenmakers (No Goodbyes, Netherlands 2000 – a circus tent and shredded silver)
Ruslana (Wild Dances, Ukraine 2004 – Xena, Warrior Princess for the 2000s)
Tina Karol (Show Me Your Love, Ukraine 2006 – mainly for the boots and backup dancers!)
Gisela (Casanova, Andorra 2008 – weird but wonderful…and possibly painful)
Alyosha (Sweet People, Ukraine 2010 – also weird, in a fantastically post-apocalyptic way)
But the best costume is:
Marija Šerifović (Molitva, Serbia 2007)
(Of all the posts for my picture uploader to not work for! If you need a refresher on Serbia’s winning costumes, check them out here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:ESC_2007_Serbia_-_Marija_Serifovic_-_Molitva.jpg)
Unlike men in dresses, which doesn’t seem to work out too well at Eurovision (take note, Slovenia) ladies in suits can be a winner…literally. I think this is a rare case of a costume that is memorable without being hideous. Classy but unique.
Bonus points for working the spectacles, Marija!
