The Cool House: Nul points*

Nul points*

Even united by a made-up language Belgium can't win. Last night was the first semi-final of The Eurovision Song Contest and Belgium failed to qualify for Saturday's final. So sad, so cruel.
Don't despair, through the power of the internets I bring you Ishtar with O julisi na jalini, the official entry of my adopted country. It sounds like a mash-up of Steeleye Span (Gaudete, anyone?) and The Smurfs. No really.
Click if you dare and remember Belgium is the home of the surreal.

Special bonus video: Father Abraham and The Smurfs

I always thought he said "Fruit Smurf begins" now I realise it's "Flute Smurf". Oh the power of youtube!
