Here’s Another Example of Why I Love the Eurovision Song Contest

The Eurovision Song Contest has been offering up batshit crazy music from across Europe since 1951. And while there have been some major successes (ABBA being one of them), most people pay attention because of the trainwrecks. And if they’re not musical disasters, they are at the very least interesting.

Take, for example, Ilinca and Alex Florea with their entry from Romania. Their song combines contemporary pop music with yodelling. Strangely, it almost works.

To follow along with this year’s contest, I strongly suggest bookmarking Eurovision Apocalypse.
