Did anyone else think there was something a little bit special about France's entry?
Either France or Bosnia. I'm actually appauled that Russia won. What a joke.
about this in another thread. I thought it was fantastic, and looking on Wikipedia he sounds like quite an interesting fellow. And agree with the comment above, the Bosian entry was genius. Definitely the top 2. I can't believe I didn't have anything better to do on a Saturday and am now commenting about it though!
I should have voted but I totally missed it.
Where did they come?
Other than it being totally shit, then, no.
when he revealed the swedish votes..
like Jarvis cocker with a beard which is a good thing in my book.
The rest of the show=shit
at the time,.
they didnt agree
they jsut stared.
glad someone else shares my opinion..
It was recieved with the same languid staring. It's the flamboyance in his step that does it.
I keep waiting for him to go into Grizzly Bear 'Knife', that would've been insane
... I heard he's performing at latitude this year. Anyone know if that's true?
It sounded like Bruce Springsteen meets Gogol Bordello if they weren't shit.
it's on his myspace, it's going to be awesome
Can't wait! Bring on Latitude!
Apparently it's "this generation's Bittersweet Symphony", but it's much, much better than that.
...like 'Bye-Bye'' from 'Politics''.
points did this get from the uk?
shame on us
I voted 5 times for him on the night, shameful we only gave him 2 points. I know that a lot of males in this country voted for Greece (who got 12 from us) coz she was fit.
all I could think of was Peter Sutcliffe: The Musical from The Day Today.
tellier ftw! we had a eurovision party, and silence descended on the room during france's entry...
it was the women with beards that did it for us.
that bit where he seemed to try and drink out of the globe he was carrying?
The camera cut away and focused on his slippers.
(There's a couple of sentences you won't read again in a hurry...)
Sébastien didn't win just demonstrates what a complete and utter farce Eurovision have become. I've always loved the silliness of the whole thing, but I really hope that we (along with all the other Western European countries) just pull out and leave the Eastern countries to have their little love-in on their own.
Now everybody should go and buy 'Sexuality' to make up for not giving France 12 points.
Oh, and Bosnia's song was amazing.
I dont remember it being that good.
Eurovision just isnt interesting any more and has become over predictable. I cannot see the UK ever finishing above the bottom 5 after Blair jumped on the Bush bandwagon.
Obviously the vast majority of europe had no idea who Sebastien Tellier is, as it made no difference how good his song was.
The bookies had Russia and the Ukraine as joint favourites i think, in which case Ukraine pissed all over Russia's mediocre entry.
to start with
When Scandinavian countries and Cyprus/Greece and England/Ireland gave lots of points to one another everyone chuckled (including Terry Wogan) about how funny it was. Now the Eastern European countries do it and people act like they're making a mockery of the whole thing. Of course the voting is stupid, but it always has been.
Tellier was robbed though.
was possibly the worst WORSt song ive ever heard, but in an awesome way.
truly would have been a deserving winner
loved wogan too saying 'were really going to face a tough decision about whether or not to enter in future - its just not about the music anymore'
Best country and song in the contest hands down. That angel had soul!!!
