Can you believe it!? It’s now less than a week before some of Europe’s finest hit the stages of Moscow’s Indoor Olympic Sports Arena for the semi finals of the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest. And as the days count slowly down, auspOp ramps up it’s coverage of the entries that will be vying for glory in this year’s competition, now with two posts each day, one each for the remaining countries we’ve yet to cover. The grand final from Moscow is to be screened on delayed telecast on Australia’s SBS on Sunday May 17.
ICELAND : Yohanna – Is It True?
All we’ll say is that we’re completely glad they decided to shorten her name to Yohanna, ’cause we’re sure as eggs that the presenters for Eurovision 2009 might have had difficulty wrapping their lips around ‘Jóhanna Guðrún Jónsdóttir’. ‘Is It True’ has also topped the singles chart in Iceland (and we’re not talking the frozen goods store in the UK, just by the way). The single is a very sweet mid-tempo pOp track and Yohanna’s an incredibly stunning young woman.
