Denmark: one final for
dk News. As in previous years Denmark will select its Eurovision entry from within one final – nothing more. When in 2002 Denmark scored a last place, some people feared – and others again hoped… – that the Danish interest in the Eurovision would silently die away. However, this year DR has again received thousands of songs for next year\’s national final – already before DR published any official information. This apparent interest, one might argue, might have made DR take after its Swedish brother SVT and introduce semifinals, but DR – traditional as traditions bid – will have one final only, informs Jan Frifelt, coordinator of events at DR. The reason for this might be that the television audience are already saturated (and beyond.

DM and Jemini Scala, LondonGuardian Unlimited
In marked contrast to the standard hip-hop braggadocio, his witty lyrics are almost singularly concerned with failure: his car is clapped out, his gold jewellery is fake. Brooklyn-based headliners Dangermouse and Jemini are a more complex proposition. Their recent album, Ghetto Pop Life, has attracted acclaim from critics prepared to overlook the fact that they have named themselves after a cartoon character voiced by David Jason and Britain’s nul-points Eurovision flops. Their performance is curiously devoid of the arhythmic rapping and obtuse musical backgrounds favoured by their underground contemporaries. Instead, it boasts r’n’b influences, hooks, steamrolling beats and dextrous, intelligent rhymes that, on more than one occasion, lambast the situation in Iraq. This is underground hip-hop simply because it has yet to be recognised by the mainstream. DM and Jemini are joined on stage for their entire set by a stocky white man in a flat cap.

But perhaps they didn’t intend to pose starkers at all. Perhaps, ladies, it was a just simple matter of their bikini tops falling off. After all, these things frequently happen, especially, we’ve noticed, if one happens to be (a) at the Eurovision Thong Contest in Faliraki, or (b) starring in Carry on Camping. · This week’s debate: Miss Abby Titmuss – “modern-day Florence Nightingale”, or “bazoomas out Jordan-style clone”? We reckon the smart money’s on the rank outsider – “young lady out on the razzle in a low-cut blouse”. · We’ve been riveted by an article on the Newsweek website about catcalling in Latino culture. Anna, in Harlem, found the frequent shouts of “nice ass” so disturbing that she, “bought a big dog”.

Teen’s death prompts police to clean up notorious resortIrish Independent

General Overview Of A TV Show’s SuccessDar Al-Hayat
Warda, Sabah, Melhem Barakat, Abdullah Rwaiched and many others. The show was however limited to the discovery of news voices but did not bring anything new to the art world. Not one single new song. They will say it is a television show, not a festival like the famous Eurovision, which presents new songs performed by new singers, written and composed by new talents. The show however lasted for months, moving from one place to another just as a festival could do. Art and creativity continuously create a new relationship through the magic of surprise and discovery, and this extremely important and vital element was lacking in this show, whereby the underlying message sent to the public was that the magic of art only lay in reviving the known and in redeveloping an old desire, without calling for discovering new and unknown talents. Yet, one is encouraged to support this show, for it is a step in the right direction, and it certainly needs to be complemented by another show and by other efforts from the world of creativity.
