If you’ve been following the run-up to Eurovision — and I won’t be at all surprised if you’ve had better things to do — you are probably aware of the controversy surrounding the U.K.’s sending Englebert Humperdinck (II) to Eurovision. As Deborah Orr wrote in the Guardian, who knew he was even still alive?

It’s a bold move, probably born of desperation (can you blame them?), and I suppose that I have to grudgingly applaud it.

But the fact is, this act is going to eat Ol’ Englebert’s lunch.
