Verka Serduchka, Ukrainian Eurovision Entry

Verka Serduchka is one of my favorite entertainers in Ukraine and this live show doesn't do his/her videos justice. Evidently there was some controversy about the orginal lyrics that said something like "goodbye" to Russia and have been changed. A shame really since Ukraine has been trying to say goodbye for way too long.

I spent some time with corporate Ukrainians in Kiev for a while and was surprised to learn they were embarrassed by Verduchka. They should be proud.
