You may know that there's some sports tournament taking place in Dima Bilan's homeland at the moment. Many of the usual suspects are there. However there are some absences. It's like they tried in a semi-final and didn't make it.

That's happened to our friends in the Netherlands. You'd expect them to get through to the football world cup, but they got stranded in the semi-final. A bit like today's birthday girl Glennis Grace (née Glenda Hulita Elisabeth Batta). In 2005 her impossible dream was to sing in a Eurovision Grand Final. She got her wish. She missed out by quite a long way. Does that make her more Glennis Disgrace?

Glennis is 40 today.

Gefeliciteerd, Glennis!
