Monty: Ukraine - one giant leap...
There have been some changes to Ukraine's presentation: Zlata is now wearing a shiny metallic frock that blends from red to blue in the spectrum, figure- hugging to the calf from whence it flutes out. The giant, however, is still here, now bedecked in some get-up featuring feathers sporting from his headgear as he stomps on to shaky camera footfall effects and plonks Zlata on an ornamental rockery segment. The backdrop flits from a lightning bolt to birds flapping and she belts it out as well as you'd expect. But there's something wrong here: it's all terribly distracting and really detracts from the song. I think this may finish mid-table in the final, though I'd be very surprised if it doesn't get there from the semi.
