Classics replayed in UK pastiche show

by Richard West-Soley 48 views

London plays host to a replay of some Eurovision Song Contest classics next month, as a very special pastiche show hits the UK capital.

Eurosedos is a pastiche contest where a selection of past favourites are pitted against each other, performed exactly as they were at the contest proper – down to costumes, dance routines, and even hand gestures. A talented crew of entertainers present the entries to the audience, who then vote Eurovision style on who should win and who should get the dreaded nil points.

This year, seventeen winners and two surprise guest songs will be presented in the show, which also ran in 2005 to packed out audiences. Eurosedos 2007 runs from 26th-30th June, and you can book tickets from www.sedos.org.uk .

For a taste of what to expect, you can enjoy clips from some of the 2005 performances below.
