The Whole World
Port Vendres, Saturday, 16 May - The whole world, excepting Asia, North America, Africa, South America, Australia, is rooting tonight for their country to win the Eurovision Pop Song Contest. If there were winners I did not hear them. It was hard to see them too as Russian TV, the host country, pulled out all the pop stops, nearly obliterating the Ukraine's entry with explosions and fireworks.
This year France's entry was sung, performed, emoted, by Patricia Kaas, who apparently lives in Moscow, where the pay is possibly better than in Las Vegas. Her turn I missed while catching the live jazz trio at Port Vendres' premier cabaret, Café Le France.
