Bring on the revolving glitterball and the speak-sing! Well, well - I didn’t know that the Sammarinese entry this year was going to bring us a bit of Eurovision gold but I’m damn pleased it has.
The monocle-head-braced linen-suit-wearing Serhat, who would not be out of place in one of Agatha Christie’s Mediterranean/ Northern African set murder mysteries, will be bringing Disco to the Stockholm stage. “I Didn’t Know” promises to deliver the “what the?” moment of the First Semi Final and it’s got nothing to do with the song - the song’s actually a bit rubbish. But at least its Disco rubbish!
Watch for a social media frenzy when Serhat hits the stage and here’s hoping for his sake he’s not heading for a Death on the Nile.
