The votes have been placed for Europe’s 2009 edition of the gargantuan song contest, Eurovision!

Put your hands together for Norway’s Alexander Ryback, winner of Eurovision 2009 with his song, “Fairytale”.

This contest is as much about style as it is about singing. Alexander Ryback sure had style and the judges took notice. Ryback brought a personal flair to his piece by accompanying it with his violin playing. This creative touch, coupled with his choreography led to Ryback winning the competition with 387 points: the highest ever in the history of the Eurovision song competition.

“Fairytale” beat out 24 other countries in the final, including:

Second-place finisher: Iceland’s Yohanna, with “Is It True?”

Third-place finisher: Azerbaijan’s AySel and Arash, with “Always”

The “Big Four”: France, Germany, Spain, and the United Kingdom

Host country: Russia’s Anastasiya Prikhodko, with “Mamo” (Mother)

And my personal favourite (for his awesome dance moves): Greece’s Sakis Rouvas, with “This Is Our Night”

0 Eurovision 2009

This contest is better than American Idol (or Insert-Country-Here Idol) because the featured artists are already established in their countries. This contest is a way for the countries to show off their most prized performers and for performers to show the world what they can do. You don’t have to deal with people who aren’t actually at least decent, like those blooper-reelers from AI.

I love listening to the Eurovision music because you really get a chance to see what is hott in other countries, be it English-pop-types or a more native style.

There are so many countries and different styles of music to listen to, so take a quick listen to the recap to see who you think deserved to win the competition.

    @chels I know what you mean, its hard to find good help these days. People now days just don’t have the work ethic they used to have. I mean consider whoever wrote this post, they must have been working hard to write that good and it took a good bit of their time I am sure. I work with people who couldn’t write like this if they tried, and getting them to try is hard enough as it is.

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
