A complete lack of originallity permeated this year's edition of the Eurovision Song Contest held in DÃ¼sseldorf, Germany. Lots of sharp looking, young people designed to look and sound just like artists like Andreas Johnson, Cher, Take That and Britney Spears et al.
For some reason one of the side-stories to the annual Eurovision Song Contest is always plagiarism. In 2010 the Danish winner sounded awfully like 'Every Breath You Take' by The Police. And this year's A Friend in London was also under siege just few seconds after they've won the Danish qualifier on Saturday.
