Anyone up for an absolutely STINKING whiff of the souk, the decade's daffiest debutantes, a slice of Scandi and a blast of Caucasian persuasion? Voting open until 3pm Sunday 16th Jan.

TURKEY

Having spent the best part of the 80s and 90s propping up the bottom of the scoreboard with entries that often felt like a wild goose chase in search of a decent hook, Turkey finally stumbled onto the art of a decent chorus this decade - and, coupled with the expansion of the contest, the rest was history. Along with Greece, this was essentially their decade, with five top tens, a win that really gave the contest a kick up the arse, a perfect qualifying record and only two entries on the right hand side of the scoreboard. Some real peaks and troughs, but a good amount to be getting on with here for my money.

Another nation that got a win this decade - their second, 37 years after their first with Dansevise in 1963 - and a very creditable bridesmaid bow on home ground the year after, before very quickly starting to run hot and cold - although generally qualifying more often than not after their relegation in 2003. Denmark doesn't have a rep as Scandinavia's most Magic FM nation when it comes to Eurovision for no reason - there's some good stuff to be getting on with here, and then there's...some stuff a good cut or two below.

2001: Rollo & King - Never Ever Let You Go

No, not @RJN's one, the other one.

Anyway, they stormed in with one of the great debuts of Eurovision history, stuck around with, uh, one of the follow-ups of Eurovision history, and then promptly stormed out after their war with Russia saw them attempt to send a barely veiled diss track against Putin to the Moscow contest. Just the two entries that made it to the Eurovision stage here for you girls.





2007: Sopho Khalvashi - Visionary Dream
2008: Diana Gurtskaya - Peace Will Come

I'm sure 'Mum' is used as an instrument of torture by the Belarussian KGB to break the spirit of dissidents.

Every time am watching Dum tek tek and the guy with the green skirt and the wehrmacht boots(or maybe prada sneakers) comes in.

Belarus really is an unexpected delight. Aside from one glaringly obvious exception, I could have given top marks to any of them.

And I'd never noticed that there's a quick outfit change for everyone in 'Peace Will Come', not just Diana.
