To be honest, I haven't really been paying that much attention to this year's Eurovision contenders. Because, how do I put this, it's shaping up to be a bit of a shit event. The UK is sending a joke entry and Soraya is too busy burning up the Russian club charts to represent Spain - so why even bother? Well, here's one reason why Baku won't be a complete waste of time. The French entry is fucking amazing. Some of you might be familiar with Anggun. The Indonesian-born, French-adopted superstar had a massive worldwide hit in the late '90s called "Snow On The Sahara" and remains popular in Europe and Asia.
I haven't heard a lot of her music but I intend to remedy that after hearing "Echo (You And I)". This is icily beautiful electro-pop anthem is perfection and boasts the catchiest whistle-hook in recent memory. I love Anggun's husky voice and ability to look classy while wearing next to nothing. Like any good diva of a certain age, the Asian beauty is targeting the gays with her exquisite video. It features a cameo from Jean-Paul Gaultier and lots of male-models in underpants. Oh and guys in gas masks kissing. So chic! Check out the early frontrunner for 2012 Eurovision glory below.
