    Once a year a conglomerate of five European broadcasting stations each chip in enough cash to fund a $25 million 200 minute music broadcast of one act per qualifying country. To be a qualifying country you have to get Euro-satellite broadcasts, so it's the whole Mediterranean rim and all countries north of there, and you have to either be one of the funders or pass a voting stage to trim the acts on the night down to around 25. The broadcast is from the territory of the previous year's winner, judging is half by by phone-in and half by a national panel, nobody can vote for their own act. It's been running fifty years, Britain's won it five times, Ireland seven and Israel twice, to give examples. A few acts are exciting, most people in England watch it to groan and mock.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    I got that wrong, I now discover. Israel won it three times, not twice. Mea maxima culpa.

    How can you put 'Musical taste', anywhere near a topic about Eurovision ?

    Be fair, my phrase was the reverse of what you imply.

    Chirpy cheep, chirpy chirpy cheep cheep, chirpy chirpy cheep cheep chirp.

    All kinds of everything remind me of you. Bop showaddywaddy.

    The songs (which the contest is supposedly all about.....hence the name) are at best third rate, performed by wannabes or has beens.
    The production is a generally very slick looooong advertisement for the hosting country, that may or may not bear any resemblance to reality.
    Most votes are cast on a regional political or protest basis, eastern Europeans, southern Europeans and northern Europeans sharing their votes between themselves, with some deviation amongst the liberal countries (suspect to garner support next year)
    The best bit is the results, where votes are totalled country by country with a running score, but only to see the exceptions to how predictable they are.
    I did actually watch most of it, and to be honest cannot for the life of me, hum any of the songs.
    Can't wait for next year.
