Ukraine in the Eurovision Song Contest 2009

Svetlana Loboda used to be a member of popular Ukrainian pop trio VIA gra, but her biggest solo hit was called "Mischka". She recently brought out a clothing line bearing the name "F*ck the macho". She won't find many of *them* at ESC.

Her song, "Be my valentine", alledgedly takes the pish out of crazy Eurovision performances, and includes a dress change, drum solo, terrible lyrics and English pronunciation, but best of all, she begins and ends the song dangling upside down from one of her dancers' shoulders.
