Lithuania chose their song last night, and rather than picking the rather fabulous Vytautus Matuzas, they went for the pre-match favourite Donny Montell (or Donatas Montvydas as he's known to his mum). It's a well song but unremarkable song that starts slow, then pumps up to a fairly lame mid tempo disco tune at about the halfway mark. But this clip is worth seeing for two hilarious reasons.
In a move of arch literalism, our Donatas spends the first half of the song wearing a rather festching satin blindfold. Not only will I have to resist the urge of yelling: "a bit further forward mate. A little bit more..." when he's on stage in Baku, but I really kind of hope that a real life blind singer manages to win one of the remaining Eurovision berths, just to fuck up his show, like.
But better than that, when the song shifts up a gear at around the 1:30 mark he's briefly possessed by the combined spirits of Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley and Nijinsky (the dancer, not the racehorse) for one of most laugh making ten seconds of the year so far. I hope he keeps that bit in when he gets to Azerbaijan!
