Posted:well i never normally watch it but i decided to this year. luckily i missed all the songs so i jus watched the voting smile i had such a laugh! terry wogan has a new place in my heart. some of the things he was coming out with were quite amusing ... complaining how long the voting was going on for, commenting on the predictability of voting and generally taking the piss out of the whole contest with his sly digs.

what got me thinking was the fact that all the competitors take is so seriously. do the europeans really think that this is good music? and do any of them/you take it as a totally serious competition?

i know that its pretty much a joke in the uk. even if we did win it (which is never gonna happen) the artist would maybe get a bit of admiration but would fall very quickly into the pit of musical nothingness. ok it was different int he old days when bucks fizz (???) won it but its changed

why is it that the biggest countries also being the largest contributors came last (uk, spain, germany, france)? do you not like us or was our song really that bad? tongue i dont see why we cant get a decent act together

i think its more of a political contest now. germany dont vote for us (uk), we dont vote for them. we vote for the countries we like to go on holiday (turkey greece spain), and they vote for us.
anyway ill be watching all the fun and games next year ...

I want to see more cheezy metal on Eurovision.. Maybe this is opening a new door as far as the competition is concerned and some good stuff will get on..

But then we'd lose the cheesy charm which makes it so special...

"I can't remember that song. Actually, I can't remember any of them."

"I haven't even had a drink yet"

"you don't need a microphone!"

The music however, was crap as usual.

Posted:he probably confused half of europe with the whiny cockney accents and school uniforms. My friend in Slovenia was quite taken aback when i told her that practically every kid in the UK has to wear one...

maybe there was also an element of political voting...

....and he was utterly crap....

would we even let that song get into the charts in this country? why do they always put something utterly rubbish in eurovision, he should have known he had no hope of winning, not against Lordi, or LT United goddang! - the UK should have a pisstake entry next year, any volunteers?

Posted:*thehe* I saw Antti



But what I really don't get is why Serbia won. I saw the Eurovision together with a friend of mine and our comments when watching Serbia's performance were:

me: are they all touching her because she's about to trip over?

her: could it be that she's turning red as a tomato?



Our top three were:

1.) Georgia: now that was a cool song. I also liked the sword-dancing

2.) Hungary: really beautiful song, even though the singer seemed to be nervous

3.) Bulgaria: that was fun!

Israel is also participating in pretty many European research project. So once I asked someone from one of those projects why Israel always turned up in the among all the European countries and he said: Isreal is pretty much isolated in the Middle East. So if they want to to participate in international research projects of want to be a member of an international network, they can't do it there. And so they usually join the European countries.

Posted:Thanks for putting these vids here. I have something on video from an early rehearsal that I might upload on YouTube later. I hate the way the shot and cut the firepart of our show. But it wasn't as bad as I remembered. I hope we later get more videos shot from the audience. I actually had a routine and all that but you couldn't see much on the tv.

It was a great experience to perform there though and we had an amazing group of artists. And the biggest audience that I will ever have.

About the songs..... I really don't get why people liked Georgias song. I had a plan to say to the singer to her face that their song sucked and then kick her in the knee just before she got on stage. ubblol But I forgot. Danm.
