There’s one country we missed – Portugal. We had cued up a Cesaria Evora track, but then decided to leave it at the last minute.

At least musically, I’d say the clear favorites are Brazil, followed by Germany and Italy. I won’t even get into predicting the outcome of the tournament, though, now that both my teams (the Czech Republic and the USA) have been eliminated 😦
