Still the most robbed song of the contest. Beautiful performance of an amazing song which is underrated everywhere, surprisingly even here.

??? is this post in the right thread.  Latvia was just a bloke shouting completely random things about traffic jams and girls jumping on rooftops.  It could be called many things but beautiful sure ain't one of them :doh:

What's not to love about a musically rich entry for once? Better than most of the rest of crap so many fans praise, and probably the best or one of the best latvian entries ever. The idea, the performance, heck, even the gimmick (the hand) were all greatly made and the fact that this goes unappreciated baffles me, specially considering the utterly pathetic entries that passed instead.

Huh? WTF are you talking about?  It was a bloke shouting in Russian about wanting to avoid traffic jams.  Gimmick? that wasn't a gimmick :doh:

We could very well deconstruct negatively every single entry that has participated in ESC that way. It doesn't take away from the beauty, originality, and bravery of the latvian choice so unfairly bashed.

Brave I'll definitely agree with.  Original too.  I just can't see any beauty in it at all.
