I didn't get to see it this year but I do love Eurovision, been watching it since I was a kid .. .when Abba won in 1974...I was there (watching it on telly of course!). I never predict the winners or anything because my tates are so different from the mainstream. It's also gone a bit trashy lately...but I suppose that sort of reflects pop music as a whole.

Anyway I'm glad Italy did well and came second, with a classy song, not the usual pop-trash .. the winner is uuurrghh, so American, so artificial...as was Sweden's.

Yip, there is a thread for almost everything in the dusty archives.

Silly Beatles story of the day: Brian May wanted The Beatles to compete in the Eurovision Song Contest

 

Anyone going to be watching tomorrow nights Eurovision? I am tempted to grab some snacks and sit thru it all for the first time ever - tho in reality will probably get 30 seconds in to the first song and need to turn over. The results are great tho, love watching that.

Yeah i'm watching it. 

That Israel track was pretty good.

This Estonian one however is pretty dodgy, sounds like your bog standard boy girl moody duet that bores the UK charts - ooh a trumpet part. And whats up with the staring?

Happens every year, it's to promote the country for tourism I think.

 

Wasn't as bad as one of your songs in 2009 (?) I think where ye pretended ye were airplanes. Then again Ireland did send a turkey puppet....

Well, if you ignore the vocals and the lyrics and the stupid electronic bits that dont fit the song its decent enough. 

Why did we have a Louis Armstrong impersonator?

Do you want to see if I can get Graham Norton to give the Biblers a shout out? 😛

 

Oh no it's a sorrow ballad!

We pretended we were airplanes? Oooooooooookkkkkay then.

Turkey puppet? I presume that isnt a dig at Jedward.

Didnt we send Jordan one year or was that in a vote for who would go?

Ye did in 2005 and nope we did send another turkey puppet that wasn't Jedward.

He's a popular character on children's television- Dustin. Surprisingly since he's embarrassing 'failure to qualify' he hasn't really been on Irish television for some strange reason....

Tweet him.

Let's call us Rodney and Abby (get it, Appy and Rodney (after Dave) and we'll be watching from the Shetland Isles because it's Scottish and I like ponies. 

 

Is it just my eyesight or does this one have pink hair?

I think saying "Appy" would probably be unrealistic so for all intents and purposes I'm Abby.

I set up a Twitter account for the occasion so Graham you better say our fake names!

 

Well Norway will lull me to sleep

Austria is the only country in the world where you can paddle down a river, surely you know that mmm?

So many German flags in the audience!

I do like Graham Norton a lot. His sarcasm really suits the show and works as he obviously loves the show behind it.

OK then. Man randomly goes into a cave wearing a space suit. Its Sweden, where my sister is.
