Eurovision Winner 2009: Norway

So my Bosnians finished a respectable 9th out of 25 national contestants (Croatia finished 18th), but the prize was taken by Norwegian fiddler Alexander Rybak with his song, “Fairytale,” which is fairly impressive in its own right. Congrats.

Bosnia Enters Eurovision Finals with Regina’s “Bistra Voda”

Bosna i Hercegovina will be one of the nations taking part in this Saturday’s Eurovision Finals in Moscow. A band called Regina will be performing “Bistra Voda” (Clear Water). Although I find the song only moderately enthralling, the costumes and stage act are pretty bad-ass.

Here’s a clip from their semi-finals performance in Turkey:

The official video of the song is kinda cool too:

Of course I have a real soft spot in my heart for Bosnia, so I wish Regina all the best. Go Bosnia!
