I remain mystified by Eurovision, the annual camp fest that captivates gay Europeans. Although I’m pleased that The Gays took first and second place, this year’s winner, the song by out lesbian Marija Serifovic, representing Serbia, was complete schlock ripped from the Jim Steinman/Celine Dion songbook. However, I am amused by the second place winner from Ukraine, a drag queen named Verka Serduchka, whose accordion techno entry, Danzing Lasha Tumbaiis, is much catchier than it deserves to be. I mean, accordion techno? Verka even throws in an “ooo-wah, ooo-wah.” Still, Rednex had a huge hit, so what do I know?
