Manolo says, one more reason the Eurovision contest should be outlawed: Verka Serduchka
Manolo loves the shoes!
Eins, Zwei, Drei! He’s such a happy little star-headed gnome!
I guess years of listening to European music in Deutschklasse have warped my musical sensibilities, because I thought that was great! Of course, it was completely campy, ridiculous, over the top, and tasteless, but it wouldn’t be European pop music if it wasn’t.
NICE shoes though
Delurking to stand up for Verka! He was/is actually a comedian and has made an incredibly successful career with the Verka character. His songs are great and his performances are always over-the-top, wacky, fun! How can you not love a singing Dame Edna!
Ayyyyyy! This song, it is now stuck in the head of the Manolo!
That’s a darn good Euro-pop song. I’d also like to point out: if Boom Bang-a-Bang performed by Lulu won Eurovision, anything is possible. Go Dance!
I must admit, I am a sucker for a good polka. Flog me if you must, but I kinda loved it. Blame my Polish grandma…
He so reminds me of Mike Myers.

This is Turbofolk, which is popular in the Slavic countries. For those who listen to or have been exposed to Turbofolk, it’s nothing new, and it’s not a bad song.
The costumes, on the otherhand, are not representative of the genre.
i have never been so proud to be of ukrainian descent!! my people’s finest hour is upon us!!
This is absolutely very entertaining. I totally enjoyed it.
When does her U.S. tour go on sale?
I forgot to mention that the accordian is wonderful. A great instrument which should be used more in pop music!
