Romania 2012 - Electric Fence - Shunta
Nestling among all the usual turbo pop, plinky plonk and mawkish ballads in the Romanian final, you can find this splendid little joy of boisterous wonder.
Employing the the kind of hardcore folklore frequently beloved by their cousins next door in Moldova, this is a happy-go-lucky stomp riot that would light up any stage - and especially one plonked on the very banks of the Caspian Sea.
I'd love to see them send this to Azerbaijan, and fancy that it would do pretty well if it got there - but will the good people of Romania be brave enough?
