    I completely agree with Ewan when he speaks at 34:45 about the framing of the signature dance move. My worry with Italy has aways been that they are trying to jam in too many vote-winning moments. They all need to be treated with care, otherwise they are wasted. Well done for being the first site I’ve followed to reveal the name of the Gorilla. And I’ve followed a load of site this past week.
