Pop goes the world

A neat little YouTube video taken soon after Serbia’s Marija Šerifović won last night’s Eurovision contest. The revellers have gathered in Belgrade’s Square of the Republic, the site of numerous anti-government demonstrations during the 1990s; after a brief spell of nationalist chanting, the crowd spontaneously bursts into song. That the song in question is a no-holds-barred lesbian love power ballad makes the scene just that much more fabulous.
