Breathlessly

You know the phrase that you can't make a silk purse out of a Sow's ear? Claudia has just proved that you really really can. Whist the song is terribly old-fashioned and is an old school ballad, Claudia's 11 attempts at getting here (Eurovision, not Kiev) and her class as a performer really shows through. She doesn't have to do anything and indeed doesn't move anywhere on the stage, and its not needed.

The eyes on the background are surprising and when she stands in front of the closed hand she looks Lilliputian! - Small ... Far away!

After the first four songs, two have been substandard, Austria was a mile ahead of this but Malta have just
come up to second.
