Because it is the most important day of the year, you lucky people get Open Post early! How very lucky you are indeed. Its Eurovision and that means I’ll be sitting at home all day screaming and crying at the TV. And this year, Eurovision is actually being aired on American TV! For the first time ever! In color! Thank god I don’t have to suffer through a crappy live stream online. Those grainy feeds start and stop all the damn time and it really takes away from the miracle and gift that is Eurovision.
Our host for the day is the gorgeous and stunning video for San Marino’s entry, “I Didn’t Know” by Serhat. Sadly, San Marino didn’t make it to the finals. I don’t want to say anything bad about Eurovision because it is my god and it can be a vengeful one, but how this didn’t make it to the end, I have no idea and I’m just gonna put the word “rigged” out there. This magnificent musical epic was directed and art directed by Thierry Mugler, now Manfred Mugler, legendary 80s designer. It takes some with the mot exquisite taste to put together something as glorious as this. While he may not be in the final, Serhat is a reminder of why Eurovision is so incredible. Without it, where would we get this level of ART? Let’s all put on our monocles and get ready for the greatest event of the year!
