I've seen this a fair few times on YouTube. One bloke was singing at the start, until about half way through, he suddenly stopped singing for no reason. At this point someone else walked on to the stage and started yodelling:

Eh-oh-lo-lay-lo-lay eh oh-lay-lo
Eh-oh-lo-lay-lo-lay eh oh-lay-lo

and so on, on and on and on. Eventually the original singer started yodelling along with him, until at the end there were just a couple of notes to abruptly finish the entry. Weird to say the least!

I was led to believe this was a protest song against a hydroelectric power dam. Still Eurovision wasn't exactly the place to sing and yodel about it. Protest songs usually do badly, after all. It's hardly surprising it finished 16th out of 19 songs with just 15 points.

Lol, i really like this one... and it's kinda like a precursor to Georgia this year, in some ways.
