Back at Eurovision 2011 Aurela Gaçe and Emmy were two very different artists. One was a rock chick with a pair of lungs which even Florence Welch would be jealous of, the other a cheeky bubble gum pop princess.

Last night the Wiwi Jury—our in-house panel of music unprofessionals—packed up our Lonely Planet travel guides and headed to Yerevan to review the Dorians’ Eurovision song. Did the touchy-feely number inspire us to do some good? Or did it induce nausea and vomiting? Read on to find out…
