    This is why people hate Norway; this is why people hate the Eurovision.

    Latin music from Norway, oh God, really weird entry, let's name it this way... You've got Flunk, Slowpho, so many truly great music there in Norway, and you send on Eurovision something like this? :P

    Stupid song! A copy of portugal's entry... She looks like a chiken singing! Our performance on stage was better than norway... In Portugal, we can have lots of pimba music, but this year portugal should have been qualified...
