We all know that Dana International knows how to mix it up. (Consider, for instance, the whole gender reassignment thing.) So it’s no surprise that the Israeli icon has released a remix of her Eurovision entry “Ding Dong.” Wiwi just wishes she had performed an uptempo version of the song in Dusseldorf–perhaps then she would […]
She may have won Eurovision back in 1998, but diva Dana International still has a lot of work to do if she plans to advance to the final in 2011.
Dana International has unveiled the first of two Eurovision gowns designed for her by Jean Paul Gaultier. A quick glance reveals that the inspiration was “hideous sea monster.”
