It’s pretty sad when foreigners win a contest and the contestants that are native to the country do not win it. Most of all “asians ‘ that are wannabes. I hope Argentineans START taking a little more pride and emphasize on maintaining the culture and customs and everything else that pertains to our unique “rioplatenese” culture and not wannabes .

Don’t be a sore loser. Tango is big in Japan and Finland too.
