Germany in Love With a Fairytale

May 30, 2010

We had to wait 28 years for this fairytale to become true. Last night, Lena won the Eurovision Song Contest and is now the second German winner in the history of this contest. Rumours had predicted her victory already, but most Germans still wouldn’t take her popularity in Europe for granted.

However, more important than the possibility of Lena’s victory was the fact, that Germany entered the contest with a singer who was elected by the Germans themselves. During the last years, I often wondered who decided about the entries which were often enough embarrassing. (Like last year’s entry that failed although – or rather because – the producer tried to convince the spectators with a performance of Dita Von Teese. No, sex does not always sell!) So winning actually wasn’t that important this year. Germany already had a great party in preparation of the contest and it is amazing how other European countries apparently share this feeling.

It is a nice continuation of last year’s winning song “Fairytale” by Alexander Rybak. I didn’t really like his song when he was winning last year, but after he was shown on German TV performing, flirting and fooling around with Lena I changed my opinion towards him. He even expressed his hope for Lena to win before the contest. Now, every YouTube video of him and Lena is marked by comments on what a cute couple they would be ♥ I have to say, I’d like to see them together as well, but who knows, maybe Alexander can sing “I’m in love with a fairytale” to Lena soon just as Germany is in love with the fairytale Lena let come true for us 🙂

Anyways, ‘though most of you might have seen it already, here is Lena’s moment (sorry for the German commentator version):
