Finally Lithuania defines their eastbound position in the ESC. It’s the Eastern European kind of funk, baby!
Lithuania have really delievered some horrible power ballads and Eurotrash pop since they started participating in 1994, but they did also give us fun stuff like “We are the winners” and “Happy You“, so we never gave up hoping for better days yet to come.
And boy, did the better day come. If you don’t love five hunky men in tight, checkered pants doing their partydance, you are just not made for Eurovision. This is all we need in Telenor Arena: Someone to dance with, sing along with and drool over at the same time. It’s catchy, funny and crazy. Playing the kazoo and bright colored instruments while claiming to like it rough is an excellent idea.
So be it that they are not really in sync with their moves or singing. They change from pants to disco hotpants for Christ’s sake! This is the Chippendales and the Village People of Eastern Europe. And it is the Eastern European kind of funk. Yay! Why didn’t anyone teach us that before?
