It’s now just a few weeks before the curtain goes up on all the glitz, the glamour and all the questionable fashions of the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest. We’re continuing our look at some of the entries that will be vying for this year’s coveted crown at Moscow’s Indoor Olympic Arena on May 14 and we’ll continue to do so in the countdown to this year’s competition. With video clips for some of the entries and live performances for the rest, introducing our next scintillating act.
BULGARIA : Krassimir Avramov – Illusion
Bulgarian singer/songwriter Krassimir Avramov will compete in the first semi final for Eurovision this year in the hope of making it through to the final of the competition on Saturday May 16. The clip begins with an army of armoured soldiers riding through the mist before a long-haired temptress lures one of the soldiers (who happens to be Krassimir) into a dark passageway. We suspect the original video to this features some rather graphic scenes, ’cause it fades to black on a number of occasions. But it’s a very dark and intense clip.
