Perhaps there should be a rule banning all countries from voting for a country that's within 500 miles of its border...
I'd likely have greater reason to watch the Ukranian show next year, mostly for the traditional country dancing that would happen during the breaks and before and after the show. Being the Ukraine, it would likely be a form of Cossack Dancing, since they're very much into regenerating their Cossack heritage after 70 years of Soviet purging. It will also likely prove to be many times better than most of the entrants, possibly even the Ukrainian entrant too.

Not surprised that my place ended up in the 19th place, we seem to like it down there...then again I stopped watching that thing ever since we sent PŠll ”skar with his Polar bear...in fact I haven't heard our song for this year and don't intend to.

Or alternatively you could keep the entries anonymous and have the voting countries vote for the entry rather than the country.  wink

And if you really wanted to make it anonymous, you could insist that each country had to sing it's song in another language than it's national language.... evil laugh

*points at Fred* Perve!  tongue

Nosebleed: I love them because they gave us points. Also, they rock.

But why don't we make the whole competition a lot simpler by introducing these rules:

  • Everyone must sing in English
  • Everyone must give their results in English
  • Everyone must wear a hat
  • Everyone must vote for England

Now that's in the interests of Europe.   tongue

Norway came last? Again?
What surprised me is that Ireland came near the bottom. They usually get a lot of votes...but thanks for the points, Ireland!

Irland have you been deliberatley choosing an act to get no points again,  voters in the U.K are the only ones that gave you points.

I have to say our public is really stupid for voting James Fox, Do they not understand what makes a proper eurovision song, It needs to be fast, silly, over the top and catchy, that makes people want to drunkenley dance to. not an Acoustic Guitar ballad.

Don't forget the stripping! Hey, it worked for Bucks Fizz.

I think Norway deserved more than 3 points, but the best entry was the camp Bosnian.  big grin

Thanks for this short statement. Exactly my thoughts.
The problem with Max is that you have to hear this song more than one time to really get into it. I mean it is a slow love song, there is no showact nor other action in it.
And seeing all the others performing a short "peepshow", it was obvious that the quiet, on his stool sitting, eyes closed Max had no chance. It was nearly the same with the dutch duo or the spain guitar dude.

The way to watch Eurovision is with Ceefax's subtitles, which translate the lyrics of all the songs.  Totally hilarious!

Well the song wasn't bad but i don't think that this song will come into the Middle or West European charts like the Turkish song last year.

Well Eurovision has been and gone, and so has its humorous peformers and presenters (did any see what the turkish woman presenter looked like?!). We can only hope that next year the voting is about the songs aswell as which country you are situated next to (or am I hoping too high?).

Wow! Eurovision! That's still on?! It'll be on the air forever, won't it? Hasn't it been on, what, fifty years, now? Oh man, I used to love that... Good times.

Nye- No, I can't think of any American variant of Eurovision, we have throughly lame TV shows.

The best about this years Eurovision song contest was that Germany finished last with only 4 points! (I hoped it would be a 0, though). I didn't see the contest itself, just the point giving. So I don't really know how bad/good every competitor was.

Hey Lulu, it's on for exactly 50 years now. If it was a guess it was brilliant.  smile

Eurovision is still awesome. Norway 2005 entry was fantastically terrible. Glam Rock is back!

No-one votes for France, Germany or UK any more because we have no friends. We aren't in a tightly knit bloc. Bastards. Still going to Ukraine we got Ant and Shriek.

@bendernye: there's no US equivalent I know of, you guys wouldn't have the right camp attitude. Part of the point of Eurovision is to see which countries have been invented since last year. Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia? The fuck?

That I am German doesn't mean that I like the song that represents us.
The song was crap, so was the singer.

edit: Who was one of the shoot-outs of the German pop-idol (called "Deutschland sucht den Superstar" - "Germany searches the superstar" over here) contest.
