Teapacks Looses At Eurovision

Teapacks' Push the Button, the Israeli entry in the 2007 Eurovision song contest, failed to make the final round of he voting. It finished 24th out of 28 in the preliminary round of voting. Clearly European voters have no taste. The highest score it got was from France, which placed it 5th. (The song was partly in French, so maybe they got some of the clever lyrics.)

The eventual winner was the Serbian entry. Smaltz!

An interesting artifact of the voting was that Israels top votes all went to countries of the FSU - Belarus, Ukraine, Russia, Georgia and Armenia, in that order. No doubt this reflects the large number of "Russian" Jews in Israel.
