Impressive record of USA.  

 

I'm not 100% sure but I think it's the only recurrent participant that I have never voted.

We'll see if that changes this time.

Thanks, I was doubting if I went for 12 (because I got all emotional lady-like with this song years ago) or for 0 (because I thought I'd be too biased), but apparently I went for the first one :p

I remember the whole story you said about it. Apparently the song was playing on the airport when you were stalking meeting your Brazilian girlfriend for the first time, or something. :p

Almost :d 

 

Ok, because I've got nothing better to do: this Brazilian girl and me were kind of saying we were dating, even though we had never met face to face yet. Before I went to Brazil to meet her for the first time (which eventually resulted in a 3,5 year relationship) I used to watch videos of other people on YouTube going through the exact same thing (especially that insanely nervous first moment) and in my favourite one they used 'A moment like this' for the backdrop :p
