It’s now less than one month before the crowds flock to see 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.
SERBIA : Marko Kon & Milaan – Cipela
You know something? Whack out the old piano accordion and it just screams ‘Eurovision’ to us – and that’s precisely what this year’s Serbian entry contains. Performed by vocalist Marko Kon and accordionist Milan Nikolic, ‘Cipela’ (or ‘Shoe’) jumps out at you, in particular through Marko’s incredible bike helmet afro and deeper-than-Barry White vocals. And it’s one of only ten songs in this year’s competition that’s being sung exclusively in the national language of the country. Big props to that.
