Ms Tīna is well known among Latvia watchers for not only having had more than a few goes at this, but also for providing us with a few snide chuckles along the way. So when her entry in last week's first Supernova semi was a bit, well, usual, we had concerns that maybe she had grown up a little and got all serious like.
We shouldn't have worried.
Yep, because tonight she confounded all expectations and delivered a performance of such bewildering strangeness that it's difficult to put your finger on exactly quite what happened. It started off strangely enough. All dressed up like a disco Nefertiti, pulling strange gurns to the camera, amd seemingly unable to stick with a single song concept for more than a few second,myou really thought it couldn't get any stranger. But then it did. Big time. We won't spoil the surprise for you if you've not seen it, but you really won't see it coming. And from there on in the bonkesness magnifies, before an ending of such stultifying comedy that you'll start to wonder if this wasn't all some crazy in-joke that none of the rest of us were party to.
But you know the strangest thing? It only went and qualified for the next round - via the jury! This season gets weirder and weirder!
