Just so I can start a thread with several hundred replies...
I missed the Eurovision semis etc on BBC3 the other day. Sounded class.
is really awful...
this should be fantastic
like the serbian one, which was just bizarre. a lady being groped by lots of other ladies.
i want ukraine to win. maybe. or else, er. turkey! yeah.
Also, you gotta love that former-Soviet voting bloc thing they've got going on
not a single country from western europe qualified from the semi-finals. well maybe their songs were just the worst but political voting is far more likely.
belgium and andorra should totally have gone through. they were ace.
as for tonight.. Sweden FTW?
They may get a decent share of the lady vote and the gayboy vote but yeah - it's mainly about the politics
But I think Spain have a propa chance. They are pretty boys.
(also, I just found out the greatest thing ever. Paul Harrington, who won in 1994 with this rubbish song http://youtube.com/watch?v=_fNhDhtpOH8 is my dad's colleague. lol.)
that was the third year in a row Ireland won, so this rubbish, rubbish song had probably been specially selected to lose. and yet it still won. crazy stuff.
and it IS fantastic.
that was one of the funniest things i've ever heard!
put on your white suit and get those synchronised dance moves in motion
but I can't remember what the french commentary is like. The BBC said the belgians hate it (as do some of the french)
does that mean it's good then?
I'm watching the Lordi fire and Ice intro while listening to Phantom by Justice
is going to go BOOM during every song, isn't it?
Oh man. what a cheese-fest.
will do ANYTHING not to win again, won't they?
WTF are they doing singing the blues?
well done sue.
here's sue diamond, didnt know she was from lithuania!
is like that Shirley Bassey dance remix from a few years back. Not bad!
since when did the french allow english words in their songs? I thought they despised that idea
still a bad song though
at France. What the fuck!? Nil points
ever and thats saying something!
The butlers got though. This song is great. Latvia for the win!
why is there a guitarist on stage for russia?
and taste my cherry pie.
russian songwriting :(
also i saw a guitar but didnt hear one? lol
The Russians used the word 'bitches' in the chorus.
its all about harriet potter from serbia!
See also: that Amy Lee lookalike from earlier.
it is actually the worst song of the lot (so far)
Serbia women are truley scary
Looks what follows Ukraine...
we have a wiener
deserves to win!
when it randomly went WOOP WOOP
in the camp hyper-pop stakes we're not even close
Stop the contest now and give it to Ukraine.
Here's another Sue. Well Su. Su Pollard.
Hi-Di-Hi from the 25th century!
This is fantastic. I'm not even drunk, and I think it's fantastic. BRILLIANT
...and that one HAS to win.
I am so embarrassed to be British.
flying the flag
"flying high in Amsterdam" , eh?
Makes you proud to be British
you've got no chance
even by Eurovision standards.
Nil points coming up!
did the two women dressed as bucks fizz come from? i dont remember them from a radio one roadshow circa 1998
but europeans love that sort of sound, however they dont like us so we would get close to nill even if we enterd Radiohead.
On another note whats the point of the accoustic guitar in the romanian entry?
looks like a prison christmas production.
Pandering for votes. Disgraceful!
Let Romania have it if Ukraine don't.
and ron wood.
This is much better.
It is as well! I was wondering why I was beginning to love it
sheck eet sheck eet
amazing haha, it grew on me n the tounges he spoke at the end made me laugh my head off.
Doesn't mean you have to sing in English.
Makes me want to never ever go in a kebab shop ever again! o wait :S
tell me what you're thinking.
or is it just because its from finland?
Back in wanky ballad territory.
till the very eeeeeeeeend
sounds like it might have been on that programme with andrew toad-webber earlier.
to give you something vaguely interesting to look at.
How the fuck did Israel not get through?!
in the semi finals. Bloody racists.
Wasnt the tranny that won a few years back from Israel though?
that isnt in EUROPE.
hurrah, more dodgy rock
lordi was the best thing on so far, closely followed by ukraine
i quite liked the french one too...
in the Cyberdog shop in Camden!!!111!
look at that 99p beard on santa!
I've been good this year. Give me stuff.
just because I can
1 - Ukraine
2 - Georgia
3 - Russia
4 - Latvia
5 - Sweden
1 - Romania
2 - Slovenia
3 - Ireland
4 - England
5 - France
if you want to take the credit..
The only one people seem to be talking about atm
some countries take this thing seriously
that wasn't serious
at how many people in Sweden thought it was a disgrace that a joke band should win
if ANYONE votes for Ireland they were watching with the sound on mute whilst looking away from the TV
as well as the most ridiculous performance.
I think Russia will win though just because they were totally hot.
because of all the eastern european nations in it.
but im hoping it'll be france.
terrible in a good way!
like a pub band. Ukraine was eurovision terrible!
but im trying to be less obvious, and more indie!
heavy metal cello. I need to visit Finland.
just the surrounding countries then!
france have votes!
"we are already better than last year" - french commentators
still down the bottom.
i dont even remember what latvia's song was.
singing in opera voices. I thought that was one of the best!
..but I just made a coffee, and turned the tv on whilst I sat drinking it. I caught the rundown of who had been on. And from the 15 second clips of each artist I have to say that my vote would be going to these:
Go team Russia!
we wont get any 12s
but we wont save them
and it still happened
but better performance this time.
i think we have a chance; there must be some scooch fans in ireland.
Someone give us some points :(
it was rubbish!
IRELAND HAVE POINTS
Keep it up, lads.
We're the shithouse of Europe! :-)
"pushed the button" hmm.. nuclear holocaust?
He sounds genuinely disillusioned by the eastern European voting blocs...
imagine what the EU is going to be like in ten years.
do you think that's what Serbia say to themselves?
no wonder we're on 0 points with that kind of attitude!
it's pretty obvious
it's all about displaced ex-pats
Germany giving Turkey 12 for example - it's not just the eastern bloc voting
Denmark and Norway gave sweden 12
and the balkan voting blocs are fighting it out with the former soviets bloc
Ireland don't give us points. I want to see the big zero...
i hope earland give us one point, just to make me feel less bad.
that was lucky.
come on ireland
ireland you have let us all down.
voting for the UK. this political voting is absolutely shocking.
IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD!
i think you're right about the displaced ex-pats then...
what the fucking fuck
K.D. Lang/anidifranco effect + Balkan/alpine voting bloc = the win
You all need to watch Neil Hannon's mickey-take Eurovision song, it's class.
'Tis from The Culture Show last week.
should resign the acts there do get trough to uk public vote are one big joke at lest finland had the got to take big gamble last year
Although I thought Ukraine and Georgia were the best and Serbia, Hungary and Latvia were clearly the worst
Who was that hideous woman in the pink though. Girlfriend of one of the producers methinks
he would have done anything to hide her...
Justifies his existance
