Volume 135: Lena and so on…

Well… haven’t we all been very much suprised that sweet little Lena finally really won this contest???Congrats to her, I really like her fresh and natural personality – and yes, I do like the song. But it was not the best song that night. Please listen to “my” favorites below, some German entries from the past years – and of course there is some more Lena  – in my last posting 🙂

Tom Dice – Me and my guitar (Belgium – Germany gave 12 points to that one!!)

Niamh Kavanagh – It’s for you (Ireland, ended up being 23rd out of 25… I like it anyway)

Texas Lightning  -Never Ever (2006)

Max Mutzke – Can’t wait untuil tonight (2004 – grate voice, still like his music)

Stefan Raab – Wadda hadde du denn da (almost unbelieveable that this guy, trying his luck in 2000, ended up 5th (!) is now responsible for Germany’s success this year…Showbiz..)
