The timing was right, because yesterday the draft European Constitution was finalised by Valery Giscard d’Estaing. As if to mock this show of unity, a dispute of unprecedented acrimony between the German chancellor and the Italian prime minister showed no sign of abating. Meanwhile, the European Commission was engulfed in yet another corruption scandal, while the still greater abuses of the EU’s aid budget and the Common Agricultural Policy persist. The economies of the euro zone languish on the brink of recession.

Before his death he had written a song with Torben Lundgren, which is now one of the 315 songs submitted for the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2004, next year\’s Danish final. Already when alive, Tommy Seebach set a record by entering the Danish finals all in all seven times (and on top of it winning three of them!), but now he might set an even more unusal record if his co-penned song is selected for the 2004 Danish final, and wins. Tommy Seebach is a legend in the Danish Eurovision history. In 1979 he performed Disco tango at the Eurovision Song Contest and ended up 6th. In 1981 he represented Denmark with Kr?ller eller ej (Curly hair or not), together with Debbie Cameron, and ended up 11th. In 1993 he sang Under stjernerne p? himlen (Under a starlit sky) at the Eurovision stage and reached a mere 22nd place, Denmark\’s second worst result. Tommy Seebach also took part in the 1982, 1984, 1985 and 1987 Danish preselections with the songs Hip hurra, det\’ min f?dselsdag (Hooray, it\’s my birthday), Pyjamas for to (Pyjamas for two), Det\’ d?t jeg altid har sagt (That\’s what I\’ve always said) and Det\’ gratis (It\’s for free) respectively.

Meanwhile, DR announced to take a close look on the rules hoping that changes will affect the European edition too. The first edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest is about to take place; exactly one week to go before the show will be aired for the very first time. Taking this into consideration, the story comes up at a very unlucky moment.

VIEWTIFUL ? that?s the only way to describe it. The brainchild of Hideki Kamiya, the director behind classic titles Devil May Cry and Resident Evil 2, this game is so ?out there? that it?s actually merited the addition of a new word to the gaming vocabulary.

Israel Turning Its Back on Peace and NeighborsArab News
Israel is building 360 km of 10 meter-high concrete, electric barbed wire, check posts, watchtowers and a squad of armed men ready to shoot “any person who passes or damages this fence. ”Initially termed a “separation obstacle”, the wall is now referred to by the Israelis as a “security fence”. Israel claims that the sole objective of the fence is security from terrorists and suicide bombers. On the Palestinian side it is seen as a wall surrounding a concentration camp: Brimful of humiliation and collective punishment, a massive land-grab and a frightening disaster.

But the much improved second series of Fame Academy crept up quickly and grabbed hold. Actually, it was still only semi-OK – a bit rubbish in a way that made it seem even better. Cameras wobbled, celebrity guests in the audience were always caught looking the wrong way (main culprits: Shane Ritchie and Ricky Gervais), and no one ever seemed to know quite what to do – walk off set or stay put? Hug presenter Patrick Kielty or ignore him? Yet last month’s live final had that Eurovision feel about it: friends invited round, free-for-all repeat-dial voting, guilty enjoyment of tension in something so facile.

The Female
The exact triumphal formula used to apply for Skunk Anansie. Undoubtedly women are nowadays just as able, if not even better than men to combine lyrics with seductive melodies and make it right to the top. Though locally, there is as yet no professional recognition for singers, the unparalled success of Mary Spiteri, Chiara and Ira Losco (all attaining a top-3 placing) within the much-prized Eurovision song contests are testimony to the competitive merit of Maltese female artists.

Word Games…
Scrabble (another modern invention, it became popular in the 1950s) combines the delight of crosswords with anagrams, and of course it’s not a solitary pleasure, you beat other people at it, and a game is not really a game at all, some might say, unless you can beat somebody at it. Even my dog likes to beat me at tug-of-war, there’s no fun in just tossing his old jeans around by himself. Anagrams, by the way, just to remind you, are what you compose when you take, particularly names, and rearrange them to make other words: Florence Nightingale: flit on, cheering angel. Britney Spears: Presbyterians. Western Union: no wire unsent. Eurovision Song Contest: I vote on cretinous songs.

These three dancers were given the opportunity to train with the rest even though they were not chosen as finalists. Towards the end of this week?s programme we will also find out who has to face the first challenges next week.
