Or better still, create a new thread!

Please direct all future Eurovision natter to this thread. For reference, the previous thread is here.

I'm not that excited to find out who will be representing the UK this year because the result is too much of a let-down when I allow myself to get hyped up. I'm more looking forward to listening to all of the entries after my exams. Roll on May! :awesome:

I never watch videos before it because I don't want to ruin the surprises on the night!

Also, nothing makes me happier than the Eurovision jingle.

I'm gonna put an early bet on Iceland for a top 3 finish.

I also thought it was quite amusing that Serbia have recognised the largeness of their vocalist and chosen to make the most of it by dressing her in white and using her as a projector screen.

What children watch Eurovision? I mean, I accept its a dated and painfully uncool platform, but that surely alienates children before it alienates adults.

Children can't appreciate the humour.

He's just salty because Belgium usually gets a shit result and often doesn't make it into the grand final. :P

I am not the only one then. Except our own of course. I didn't even watch the semi-finals until a few years back.

And yes. That intro music is just pure awesome. It brings good memories with it:lol: .

I am pretty sure that most people watch Eurovision. Some just don't want to admit it.

It gets quite good viewing figures over here at least, although not anywhere as many as it used to when we stood half a chance of winning probably.

My friends and I are using it as an excuse for a get-together-sort-of-party thing this year. All getting together, unashamedly having a BBQ, then watching the acts later on, and probably having a little too much to drink along the way. :P

We often have eaurovision drinking games, where you have to drink everytime you see a common trope (gay singer, glitter, outragous costumes, and whatever stereotype you can think of)

Our national selection was today...

She won:



That's the first time that I actually liked the winning song. There can only be two reasons for that... 1 - the song was good, 2 - the other ones were pure shit. I am gravitating towards option 2 to be honest.

Also - Raay wrote the song again (he is the one playing the piano). That's the second year in a row that he has written our winning song.

^ The fan reaction to the Slovenian song has been very positive so far, so you never know. Of course, plenty of past fan favourites have flopped, but it's still a good sign. Maybe you'll be in the grand final for the second year in a row. That alone would be pretty good. :thumbsup:

We all know that we aren't going to win any time soon. I'll be really happy if we get into the finals. That's really the most we can ask for.

But surprisingly not many people are complaining on the forums this year. Most of them seem to agree that it was the best song out of the ones competing. And there are even more comments about corruption. Because they change the rules every single year.

This was in the second place: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z9bXFmHzSnU
It's just horrific. Though Italians and Russians would probably like it :lol: .

Yikes! It's got a certain flavour to it but probably would have crashed and burned in the semis. Saying that, Greece could enter something like this and get a top ten, and that's Eurovision for you! :lol:
