Belgium’s Eurovision 2008 Entry

Ishtar is the name of the band Belgium is sending to Belgrade. Wikipedia tells me that their traditional-sounding song, “O Julissi Na Jalini,” is sung in “imaginary” lyrics. It’s ridiculously adorable, although it goes on a bit at the end, even though it is only a two and a half minute song. Still, the performance was good and I love the video backing the band up, which I think was directed by Elaine May.
