It’s my understanding that Fran Drescher is in Cinderella on Broadway.

But I think we can all agree that she’s wasted on any stage except that most noble of places: Eurovision. Although the harsh realities of geography bar us from competing, at the very least she could host the BBC America coverage that REALLY OUGHT TO HAPPEN AHEM PEOPLE GET ON IT. I can just hear her and, say, Anderson Cooper, dissecting the symbolism and pageantry of fire cannons, and who was too preachy and who was too sappy and whether there was enough eye-banging from the plaintive ballad singers, amid her dramatic readings of the English-translated lyrics. Suddenly the Polish entry this year feels incomplete without this experience.
