Oh yes, roll on 26th May!

Getting excited! Why's that reader? Well, that's because this year's Eurovision will take place, from Baku in Azerbaijan!

For those who are unaware of Eurovision. It's a song contest. That's where people from countries all over Europe (and a few others!) sing some silly songs, then vote for the country next door!!!!

I have heard the UK's entry for this year, which is of course from Leicester's finest. The mighty Engelbert "The Hump" Humperdinck! It's brilliant to hear a proper crooner for a change, from the time of the likes of Tom Jones and Tony Christie. Obviously I was too young to hear Eng sing the likes of "The Last Waltz" and "Please Release Me". But his song for this year's contest, Love Can Set You Free, could do very well. I won't put it on here yet, I won't spoil it.

And if you've never got into Eurovision yet, just for a bit of fun, then maybe one of my highlights from last year can persuade you. Which was from Moldova, especially the young lady on the unicycle! Where's Moldova? I'll think you'll find it's somewhere between Romania and the Black Sea.
