The Silence That Remains

Eurovision was last night. For those who dont know Eurovision is a huge thing on this side of the world, all the European (incl Israel) countries compete in singing, and they narrow it down to the top 24 countries. Then, each singer sings, and at the end of them all, the people living in any of the partacipating countries (even the ones that lost in the semifinals) get to vote on which song they liked best. You vote by text messaging a certain number which was the best, and you cant vote for your home country. Theres 10 minutes to vote after all the songs. Then they tally up the score. The winner has the competition in their country the following year. Israel won one year, thanks to Dana International (a transvestite[its amazing who is chosen to represent the Holy Land]). This year our singer was Shiri Maimon. She became famous in 2003 when she came in second on Kochav Nolad (something like American Idol). We thought her song was great, her only problem was she didnt make a whole production like some of the others who used dancers and props. She just stood and sang beautifully. In the end, I voted for Latvia, and MyShan voted for Greece. Then we had to sit while each country went through how many points they gave to the other countries. That part takes longer then the actual singing.
In the end, it was:

Greece 230 points (awesome song and show)
Malta 192 (fat lady who had a great voice
Romania 158 (dont remember but my m-in-law voted for them)
Israel 154 (we only didnt win cuz of all those anti-semites out there!!)
Latvia 153, ( I thought they were the best)

Germany came in last with 4 points. France came in 2nd to last with 11 points, 5 of those points they got from Israel, all of them probably because their singer was Jewish. We were going to vote for her but the song was so bad plus she was representing France.
