100% Dedicated To Eurovision

RIP….

Posted by DINRIL on November 21, 2010

Sad news comes to us courtesy of ESC Today, who are reporting that 75 Cents, the man who brought Croatian pensioner rap to the Belgrade contest in 2008, died on Friday aged 78. The accordion player turned unlikely rapper will be best remembered – at least in Eurovision terms – for shouting all the way through  Kraljevi Ulice’s song Romanca in Belgrade, doing a bit of ‘DJ-ing’ on an old gramophone, eyeing up the band’s dancer and generally enjoying himself thoroughly. They may only have finished 21st in the final (having come a creditable fourth in their semi), but we enjoyed the performance even if the massed ranks of Europe turned out to be largely indifferent. Let’s just take a moment to remember Mr Cents’s finest hour…..:)
