Latvia 2012 - Elizabete Zagorska - You Are A Star

There are many reasons to recommend a viewing of this insane little Latvian finalist. There's the ethno dance by numbers tune, for a start, and the stilted Vegas-cum-Riga dance routine with flames and leather and big men with huge moustaches. Even Elizabete's singing is entertainingly off key in the most important places. 

But the best bit comes at approximately 2:20, when one of the band members takes his life into his own hands for a one shot gag of such ludicrous magnitude that I spat a mouthful of sandwich out through my nose in surprise!

There's no way they'll be allowed to do that on a Eurovision stage, surely? Although Azerbaijan is the Land Of Fire, I suppose!
