Nevena Coneva--the biggest star ever to come out of the Bulgarian Idol show:





In a bold (reckless?) move--Nevena takes on Dolly Parton:

Here we see how an arrogant Russian casting director comes the village, corrects (i.e., defaces) the Ukrainian sign, and is run out of the town by the Ukrainian Nationalists:

EDIT: Since it turns out I put Angina on the "Russian Speak Translation" thread (and then forgot) we don't need Angina here too. geek

I should have started with the true star of Bulgarian Idol--Valentina Hasan with her rendition of "Ken Lee, tulibu dibu douchoo..."

I like Nevena in the first audition when she says "Everybody comes on this show and says POBYEDIT'! [to win]"

The judges didn't believe Nevena could sing Danyova Mama ("My son, I let your father go off to war, and then I let your brother go too when he became a man. Come back. Take for yourself a beautiful girl; it is time for me to see my grandchildren").

When she showed she could sing that, it was a "Susan Boyle moment."

This is the original "Freestailo" clip--but we must also explore the many fine remixes:

ar6inkov echos the words of the noted social commentator Randy Newman:

"very far away in a foreign land
lives the yellow woman and the yellow man
He's been around for many a year
They say they were there before we were here."

Has The Dictator's Sacha Baron Cohen been banned from the Oscars?

Deadline blog reports that the Academy has pulled Cohen's tickets until he promises not to appear at the awards as his latest alter ego, but Oscars organisers deny they have banned him

Sacha Baron Cohen has reportedly been banned from Sunday's Oscars over his plan to appear as the Dictator, his latest alter ego and the subject of a forthcoming film.

The Dictator
Production year: 2012
Countries: UK, USA
Directors: Larry Charles
Cast: Anna Faris, Ben Kingsley, Sacha Baron Cohen

The Deadline blog says the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has pulled Cohen's tickets for the event until it receives a promise that he will not turn up in character as the Saddam Hussein/Muammar Gaddafi-style autocrat. "Unless they're assured that nothing entertaining is going to happen on the red carpet, the Academy is not admitting Sacha Baron Cohen to the show," studio Paramount told the site.

Oscars organisers later denied they had imposed an outright ban on Cohen. "We haven't banned him," an Academy spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter. "We're just waiting to hear what he's going to do."

However, Deadline said it was sticking to its story: "The fact is that, this morning, the Academy's managing director of membership Kimberly Rouch phoned Paramont's awards staff to say Baron Cohen's tickets had been pulled unless he gives the Academy assurances ahead of time promising not to show up on the red carpet in costume and not to promote the movie on the red carpet," its report read. "The Academy made it clear that, without those assurances, it would not issue him the tickets. So he's banned."

Suggestions that Baron Cohen was planning some sort of stunt emerged yesterday. The comic has a history of making dramatic appearances at high-profile events: in 2009 he was lowered bottom first on to an apparently outraged Eminem (the rapper was later revealed to be in on the joke) while dressed as flamboyantly gay Austrian fashionista Brüno at the MTV Movie awards. He was invited to present an award at the Oscars in 2007 but opted out after being refused permission to do so while dressed as Borat, his earlier and perhaps best-known creation.

The Academy had invited Baron Cohen this year as part of the ensemble cast for Martin Scorsese's 3D fantasy Hugo, which is up for 11 awards. However, organisers have long been keen to discourage attendees from promoting their upcoming ventures: the body has only just begun to allow adverts for new films to be shown during commercial breaks for the Oscars telecast.

The Dictator, described as "the heroic story of a dictator who risked his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed", is Baron Cohen's third collaboration with Borat and Brüno director Larry Charles and hits cinemas in May. The 84th Academy Awards are due to take place at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday, with Billy Crystal hosting for the ninth time.

Is Deadline still sticking to it's story? Borat did show up--in costume--so this movie-promotion event has now been contaminated with movie promotion.
