...is a bizarre contest that takes place at the end of May every year. It's a pop sing-off, judged Olympics-style, but often as not somewhat political. Germany had a reality show to determine our contestant, and Lena Meyer-Landrut prevailed.
The song itself is pretty catchy, although her pronunciation of the English language leaves something to be desired. Ryan asked his German coworker what kind of accent Lena had and the coworker insisted it was "an excellent British accent." If most Germans think this is a good British accent, I don't know what I'm doing teaching English. Also note the $5.00 budget of the music video and Lena's spastic dancing. Our odds of winning Eurovision? I'd say pretty slim. But maybe its a good excuse for a cocktail party?
