If I want to see a Polish whore molest a kitchen utensil, I'll take a wooden spoon to an east London side road at 4am and pay the first one I see £4 to do so. I don't need them shouting at me on television.



Why does it have to be a wooden spoon, Marm?

It was the first kitchen item that came to mind. If you'd prefer the Polish woman molest your blender, or your George Foreman grill, that is of course your prerogative. It's your money. Whatever floats your boat.

I made it to the 16th vote before collapsing face down on the bed. But I still managed to watch it! #trooper

And then we watched 'strange sex' on TLC after.

I do not recall making an out of date and context Simpsons reference, and do not know why I would. :confused:

I am sort of depressed now. I'm starting to realise that it's over now. This is like a drug. There was a high of excitement and now it's over for a year.

^ I usually feel like this, but I'm taking it as an opportunity to use my now free evenings for other ventures, such as the new Zelda 3DS game that should arrive tomorrow. I'm also going to steer clear of ESC music for a little while to clear my head a bit.

A few comments about Eurovision:

That being said, for me, the clear winner was Sweden. An elegant lady singing an elegant song without all the tacky Eurovision theatricals, and she sung it all on-key (which is rare for the competition). I found it very impressive, and was glad she made it to 3rd place. But since Sweden won so recently, there wasn't much chance of it winning again.
Hungary was a second place for me. I liked the song and unlike most of the songs, it had meaning. Malta's Mumford and Sons rip off came third place for me, as I quite liked it.

The show's worst song award goes to the travesty that was the Australian performance. Not the Jess Mauboy bit, but that tacky, stereotyped boppy trainwreck that came before. No eye bleach will remove that sight for me.
Sadly, the show's best song award goes to Emmelie de Forest, even though she wasn't in the competition That rendition of "Only teardrops" outdid any of the contestants.

Most overrated songs - Armenia and The Netherlands

Final comment is about the Russia controversy. I found the whole thing laughable. After cries to censor Conchita from Russian broadcasting (lol), two Russian twins sing about love and acceptance (lol) and then get shamefully booed by angry spectators who are there to celebrate love and acceptance (lol). I guess that politics can't be distanced from Eurovision.

I really disliked all the anti-Russian booing. It goes against the Eurovision principles. Eurovision was created to unite Europe after the second world war with some light entertainment. And bringing politics into it seems a bit distasteful. Especially since those girls have nothing to do with politics and had a good song.

As for the Australian performance - I found it quite amusing. It was sort of typical Eurovision. And Sea of flags was a nice song as well.

I too hated the booing directed at the Russian girls. Their song whilst nowhere near the best of the night was a perfectly good entry and they deserved their moment in the spotlight without the booing of the audience to tarnish it. It was so insensitive and shameful - they're 17 years old, and did not shape the Russia that everyone hates today. Like the Olympics, Eurovision is meant to be an escape from politics (politically biased voting aside)... at a push I won't complain about the LGBT flags in the audience as at least they are a celebration of good, successful and progressive politics. But the boo'ing was wrong, and it's ridiculous that so many people fail to draw the line where Conchita Wurst is concerned - she will have gotten votes because of her gender identity, but she got a hell of a lot of votes because she delivered a fantastic performance as well. You can't just assume the one bearing a political conflict only met success because of that conflict.

As for the British vote, when you take out the jury voting for the night, Austria only placed third in our votes, with The Netherlands coming second and Poland coming first! This says a lot about British tastes, and frankly why we have a jury vote.

I've actually downloaded the Austria and Netherlands songs... I really like them both. :nod:

Well I was traveling backwards in time today. So I went and watched the Eurovision 2000. My god. How did Eurovision become something so awesome? Because it was horrific back in 2000. There were a few good songs (namely the British "Don't play that song again" and the winning song). Maybe a few others. It's probably just the fact that the music featured there feels old as hell. Or maybe the Eurovision really did get better in the past few years.

Some of the best years came between 2003-2010. Lots of songs with ethnic flavours- this year they all sounded the same.

I voted for that song! :awesome:

On a less happy note, the two sisters who sang that song were part of this year's Armenian jury, who conveniently happened to all dislike the UK, Sweden, The Netherlands and Austria more than the other songs. The fact that those songs were all at the top of the bookies' odds along with Armenia is just a complete coincidence...
