Serbia's Marija Serifovic won the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest early Sunday with a heart-wrenching power ballad that beat 23 other entries in a competition dominated by Eastern European countries. Serifovic's ballad "Molitva," or "A prayer," received the highest score in a 42-nation vote count, followed by a glitzy drag show act from Ukraine and Russian girl band. Hosted by the 2006 winner Finland, the annual extravaganza of clashing musical tastes was broadcast live to an estimated audience of 100 million, with viewers picking the winner by phone and text messages. "All my life I have been singing and tonight this (victory) makes me very proud," said Serifovic, 22, who sang about love and pain in Serbo-Croat, flanked by five other women dressed in black suits and ties.
