It’s not often that you associate Sweden (yes, that’s Sweden) with failure. I know there are some of you out there who think that the country of the blue and gold flag can do no wrong, and should win every year. But of course there are times when the discerning people of Europe disagree with you. And it raises certain questions.
Why, for example, did today’s birthday girl Anna Bergendahl fail to get out of the semi-final in Oslo? What happened to her guitar? And, more importantly, how do you find a use for 10,000 unwanted glow-sticks earmarked for a Eurovision Grand Final? It’s this sort of question that keeps us all hooked on Europe’s favourite TV show.
Anna is 25 today.
Grattis på födelsedagen, Anna!
