The only good thing that ever spawned from the song contest is Alf Poier's Weil Der Mšnsch Zšhlt (Austria 2003).

I'm going to watch it just for Terry Wogan's increasingly cynical and senile jabbering, it gets funnier every year.

My dad bought a double or triple CD with "Eurovision hits".

As usual it'll be full with quality songs and quality voices. Cough. But I think I'll be watching it though, because I've nothing better to do.

Well, we get in on SBS, which is a multi-cultural channel to keep up with our multi-cultural society. It is on free to air, but most people ignore it. It has a lot of good documentaries though, and it shows European soccer, as well as dodgy Japanese movies. All the best Aussie shows are on SBS too; Life Support, Quads & Fat Pizza. Best channel on tv really.

Also: Horray, my home country is mentioned on PEEL!

It's always a good laugh to watch, Wogan makes it great. I think it's fair to say that we (Britian) don't stand much of a chance, yet again. Our entry is some boring ballad by this bloke with a guitar. Sadly, you can tell he's taking it seriously! If you're are going to be in the contest be as camp and cheesy as possible!

Long live the Urination, oops I mean the Eurovision Song Contest!

Quite frankly, I agree with everything alexvilagosh just said. It's being so bad that makes it good. We don't take it seriously, the contestants (often) don't take it seriously, Wogan definately doesn't take it seriously. It's a decent evening of absolute cheese.

And the political voting...  laff

"The results from the Svedish jury; Norway Twelve points, Norvege Douze points"

And the busty European chicks... what's not to like?

Last year I went to a friends "Eurovision Party", we even placed votes.  I'm hoping to do the same again this year.

I think we should love it for what it is, it's surely not meant to be the "best" music from each nation, it's meant to be crappy.

Anyone who saw Austria's entry last year would agree, and that was just awesome, because it was so bad.

It's nearly time...

I was watching GMTV's crappy entertainment section today, apparently they think Britian's entry ought to be one of the favorites. *smirk*

Even if the entry was good, the political voting would rule us out, i mean i doubt we'll get many votes from the anti-Iraq war countries.

I don't think that Germans won't vote for GB, because you followed the US into the Iraq-war.
If your song is good, we will vote for you.

Max Mutzke, German's entry this year, has been casted by Stefan Raab (Showmaster of a late night show, was the creator of Guildo Horns song "Guildo hat euch lieb" 7th in 1998, and artist with the song "Wadde hadde du de da" 5th in 2000).

He won the German pre-election by 92%. His song ("Can't wait until tonight" ) went from 0 to 1 in the German Single Charts, in just one week.
But I don't think that it has a chance to win, although it'll be a though decission.

I found the history of the ESC. It was "invented" in 1955.

EDIT: Saturday, May 15th 2004, 15:00 : The main event has started!

Well, it's just started and at the moment my vote is going to Norway. Mainly because of his suit. He looked and sung like Ronan Keating though. Weird.

I love the way people vote in these things. there's a short space of time and everyone gets worked up. What fun.  big grin

I think it would be pretty funny if England won. Then I could go next year and boogie on down and wave flags, and wear hats!

My only worry is that there may be some terrorists wishing to strike Turkey tonight because it is very westernised.  hmpf I hope they don't.  frown

That's a great episode davey.  laff

I voted for Greece, Norway (which for some reason has no points) and Bosnia because of the great hip movement and campness.

Yay! Go Ireland! They gave us points!  love Aw, thanks Irish people. (apart from faze)

I thought the half time show with the marching people in black looked like gay stormtroopers.

And go Iceland!  love

Sweden: "We love this competition so much, it hurts."  laff  laff

At least they gave Norway some points.  big grin

I'm surprised the Xena woman won. I thought it was bad.

But no one got "nil points". Yay! One year to the next one....
