The Greatest Political Moment

I think DR and the European Broadcast Union realized that there would be huge boos from the crowd when Russia qualified, so they hedged their bets by recording extra cheers and applause before the show, to mix in.

But the greatest political theatre is the kind that flies under the radar so it makes its impact before anyone knows to stop it.  I hope this was the case with the massive eruption of waving rainbow flags that blanketed the fan section next to the stage during Russia’s actual performance.  I didn’t get a good shot of it, but here are a few token flags waving near where I was standing that I caught on camera.
