yes folks,another year has passed and its time to dig out the lederhosen,tune up the accordians and dust down Cheryl Baker [Bucks Fizz] and tut at the tv for the wonderful nonsense that is the Eurovision Song Contest from Oslo.
the first of the semi-finals [curse the fall of the Soviet Union] with all the countires ending in "onia" is on tonight 8pm UK time BBC3 with the 2nd semi-final with the countries ending in "akia" on thursday same time,same channel.
this year the UK has decided to "Rick roll" you all and is sending a Rick Astley wannabe to see if we can get lower points than Gemini did..
so,what dreadful dirges are we set for this year I wonder? and do i need an extra bottle of Jack Daniels to compensate the appaling lack of taste from the continent?

i dont want to spoil it for anyone who hasnt watched it yet but...
there were only 5 countries that can afford to host this nonsense  at the moment and the UK was one of them but Europe hates us so we dont have to bother.i Wonder what other countries pay for this every year no matter who wins?..hedge your bets anyone,ok,i narrow it down to France,Germany,Spain and Azererbejan.. guess who won out of that?
oh,btw,it always makes me giggle when Israel gives "nil point" to the Germans when every other country gives 12 :-D

I once again managed to fall asleep during the show.
Obviously I didn't miss anything, other than the whole point of why anyone would want to hear that German song ever again. The winning song is bordering on a pastiche of everything that's wrong with music today. Perhaps that's why it won.

I am gutted and bitter that my personal favorite, that androgynous Serbian did not win, that haircut was a winner.

My second favorite: Greece,  they did fairly well, but not as well as I had expected. Another winning combination, an aged balding machoman from Greece, looking like he was full of hidden rage, with a stage performance where he was surrounded by younger male dancers. Now that was a Eurovision classic in the making!

I was also puzzled by the Danish song, it sounded like some DJ had mixed together "Every Breath You Take" and the chorus was taken from "The Best".

And the new voting system, how did it prevent countries from favoring their neighbours?

With national broadcasting companies deep in debt, why is this nonsense still alive, year after year?

the Greek bloke kind of reminded me of Paul Rodgers but the reason that did kinda well in the contest had nothing to do with him but the 5 buff tattooed dancers around him.i was watching it with a bunch of women and they couldnt get their fingers on the dial pad quick enough to vote for them which probably explains why the UK gave them 12 points :-p
i hope everyone is sitting down when they read this next bit...

i wanted France to win :-p

Once again Britannia is shafted by Johnny Euro when clearly our song was the best. We should now do a Dunkirk and withdraw our forces back to Blighty until next year, when our song should be the Dambusters Theme.

I agree to that. Not only was it a piss poor song, it was sung by a piss poor ""Rick (Gh)Astley"

check out "Rick's" crap dancing as well....

Of course I voted, I bought 25 pre-paid mobile phone plans to cast
several votes, learned basic Serbian/Greek to sing along with my favorites and studied their dance routines carefully. However, my wife was strictly opposed to the idea of getting Milan Stankovic-haircuts for the entire family.

Great, Pete :-) Finland gave Germany 12 points, thank you very mucho. Now they celebrate the winner like a national saint who redeemed the country after 28 years of failure at the Eurovision Contest. I heard there will be a Lena Meyer-Something statue in Berlin soon ;)

Hold on, someone actually celebrates Lena Myer-LandmineSomething? Germans should be celebrating their fantastic 4th place in the Hockey World Championships, and almost making it to the final. Or Michael Schumacher's 4th place in the Turkish GP last weekend (he drives well for a 109 year old 7time world champion), or celebrate Dschinghis Khan, the greatest German ESC group ever.

To be serious, I do think the ESC has been rigged for several years. I think nowadays they ask for a countries to volunteer to win the damn thing.  It explains why Finland won. Just look at the list of winners from 2001 onwards...  Estonia, Latvia, Turkey, Ukraine, Greece, Finland, Serbia, Russia, Norway and Germany. Something is wrong with that list, if we consider that these are winning countries of a "song contest".

^ its been rigged since at least 1968 when Franco rigged it for Spain to win

however,i had forgotten that Germnay hadn't won since Nicole back in 1983,makes the UK's woeful run in ESC seem ok now :-D

ps,did anyone else in Europe see the bit where Graham Norton was being interviewed in his boothe by the host and chatting to the UK "live" at the same time..naughty ESC :-D

Sorry Jon, but the English song was really bad - it might have had a chance in 1965!

Here is my all-time fave British Eurovision act:
