Eurovision 2008 - Chig's 34th favourite song

Germany - 'Disappear' - No Angels

Dullsville Deutschland. No Angels somehow managed to beat one of the best songs in this year's national finals, by Carolin Fortenbacher, so I really, really don't like them anyway. Even so, this is very forgettable and they won, by less than 1% of the vote, because they were once famous and have reformed. However, No Angels ain't no Spice Girls. Hell, they ain't no B*witched! This will struggle to make 20th in the final, especially as no one will have heard it in a semi-final.

Just to rub it in, here's Fortenbacher's powerful ballad, which could well have made the top ten in Beograd. (She's also recorded a great version in English.) A power ballad, a wind machine and a key change. What more could we need?
