European Song Contest / Grand Prix

I get very exited every time see that the “Grand Prix” is soon coming on TV. But I’m not the only one in my family, my father; mother and little brother are all exited.

I have often thought about that it is maybe a good idea to have some half-naked women on the stage, like this year the country that won had two very beautiful half-naked dancers on the stage. I think that maybe they get many votes from men around Europe just for the half-naked women, but who knows.
I have also read an article about that they have, in Denmark, made a law that says how much clothes they shall wear in the children’s Grand Prix. And I think of course that is a very good idea.

I and my family also have a tradition just for fun. Every time we watch the Grand Prix we all put about 20 kr. in a small bowl and then we all, after we have seen all the countries perform, write down what...
