The second semi-final

Another madcap evening in Moscow. Tonight's was a pretty dismal bunch, heavy on oddball backup dancers.

Oddest of all was Albania, backed up by a mint-green gimp and two guys painted to look like Ben Stiller, but they made it through anyways. Denmark and Norway also succeeded, so it was 5-for-5 for Scandinavia. And Sakis from Greece made it to the final, much to Sooz's pleasure, as she likes the swarthy types.

The Netherlands had three guys in spangly jackets who were old enough to be the fathers of all the other contestants. I called Marcia to make fun of them and she said "yes, they're terribly old, maybe as old as 50!" Snap.
