How can you mention Poland? The song itself actually wasn't all that terrible. But the presentation...

Anyways... Award for the gayest voice in Eurovision history goes to... Russia in 2001:

I would have gone to that, but I'm on tutorial in Birmingham so I can't travel to London for it. :(

I'm pretty excited for this. Its nice to have something Eurovision related in the UK, seeing as we're not going to win it in the near future. :D

Think tickets are about £60. I'm disappointed they've left out Alexander Rybak and a few of the famous novelty acts though. :(

I'd have been tempted if he was in the line-up as well... less so as he's not. There are a few good artists taking part though.

I think Eastern Europe is grossly under-represented in the lineup. They could have featured acts from Greece, Turkey and Ukraine, to name a few. :english:

How they've left this classic out is beyond me :lol:



I agree completely though. I wish they had more acts too. I think the 50th anniversary had a lot more.

You know, I reckon Verka will perform if asked. Maybe it will be a surprise performance! :awesome:

So Australia has been invited to compete in the final this year, to mark the 60th anniversary. :)

^ Any pedant that complained about Azerbaijan competing in Eurovision, who has no problem with Australia competing deserves nothing but death.

Whoah. This is pretty big! I'm quite excited to see what happens. I wonder if the UK will get any diaspora votes from Australia. :D

That'll likely be my family then. :P Including my sister who is still insistent that it's Azerbaijanistan, because we must label all those countries a with a 'stan' suffix and then complain about them on Britain First.

I think there may be some mutual friendly voting here potentially, particularly from Brits (I guess there might be more of a political impartiality from Australia...who could potentially vote for the genuinely best performance) though I guess it really does come down to the act.

It's an old argument, but I still wish we weren't guaranteed a spot in the final. Aside from eliminating fair competition, it also reduces exposure to the guaranteed acts. By the final, viewers in other countries may have already chosen an unfaltering favourite.

Meh. Germany won in 2010 and they qualify directly to the final every year. It's doable.

I'm fine with Australia competing. If they send Kylie.
Didn't Australia already take part in that failed Asian version of Eurovision around 2011 or so though? I vaguely remember a white girl singing in English.
