Eurovision 2010 Haiku #17: Iceland

Supremely camp tune
Will hopefully not suffer
From an ash backlash


And at that point we reach the end of the haiku for the first semi-final (which will be on 25 May). The uptempo numbers stand out, it has to be said: the delightful folksiness of Finland (still my favourite so far), the weirdness of Albania, the muscle Marys of Greece and veteran Icelandic diva Hera Bjork. Of the others, Estonia deserve points for trying something a bit different, but a lot of the others are just a bit, well, dull.

Stay tuned as the haiku meet the second bunch of semi-finalists…
