Malta 2011 - J. Anvil - Topsy-Turvy
Malta's qualification tournaments are generally packed with overweight women in shiny frocks singing mawkish Disney ballads and pasty-faced boys trying to get all earnest with guitars. But when they try pop it gets even more hillarious.
Witness J.Anvil. He's been trying to get to Eurovision proper for years, but always fails badly. But this year's he's got a crack crew of international fanboy songwriters to pen him a delightfully twee spot of showbiz. He'll probably just miss out on the final again, but for once it would be fabulous to see him get there.
Oh, and this one's got one of the best build ups to an artist reveal yet this year. Splendid stuff!
