    Re: Eurovision

    The Austrian peach-dressed floaty woman wrote the song with her dad and sang it in French. Not a recipe for success. Not that I've herd any of it, I looked at the news report. On the other hand I finally got to hear Conchita for the first time. He really did belt it out, he should be asked to do a Bond song one day.

    Britain is represented by some over-eager youth and his love interest who have no doubt enjoyed leaving the UK for a weekend, it'll be something to tell their friends next week.

    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.

    Conchita is female......get with the program will you.

    The UK entry is by two heterosexual males.

    The biggest surprise is that Australia (that famous European country) is currently winning

    If I might interject, just to get it off my chest - I have no idea who Inga Beale is, but Kirsty Young has been saddled with the most unmitigated bore this morning on Desert Island Discs. Not mere dull but smug with it. Radio 4 can't cope with that many "I"s.

    Re: Eurovision

    Tell me do, when did somebody move Australia to the north of the mediterranean ? I understand that America may be involved with next year's European Eurovision Song Contest, and quite possibly China ! Oh dear. methinks Eurovision Song Contest is dead, long live The World Annual Song Contest !!!! I s'pose it was bound to happen, particularly as the Americans seemed quite envious of our ESC. Ah well the ESC was quite a lot longer this year despite having a couple of 'semi finals' to eliminate the worst of the worst and reduce the finals to a manageable 26 songs. Next year the semi finals may have to be on 3 nights instead of 2 !!!

    Well Ukraine, in the end managed to pass European Australia ( ) and reach the top slot, and I am not so sure that Ukraine should have been in the contest as the powers that be had stipulated that there should be no protest songs and no political songs, and one could be excused thinking that the Ukraine song was a possible political song. Ok it was entitled 1944 and was about Stalin, Russia, Ukraine and Germany in 1944 and the carnage that was involved then on the 'Eastern Front', but you can bet that it would be likened to Russia v. Ukraine of recent times ! I do believe the Ukraine song 1944 should not have been included in the contest. Besides, I always thought that the ESC was about cheerful things and was 'light' entertainment, not dramatic explosive gloom subjects !

    At least, with Ukraine winning instead of European Australia, the problem of which country should host next year's contest is not,now, a problem !

    Funnily enough, I actually thought that the Russian song would be a runaway winner, but there you go, the Ukraine a surprise late runner !

    That can only be a satirical observation. How Kiev, of all places, is expected to police an event like that with the citizens of 30 nations coming through their land borders - I think it'll be cancelled to be honest. We can bump the thread next year and say how wrong I was, if you like. Are you expecting them to lift their visa restrictions for the week? Can they go ahead if they treat Russian citizens differently as far as border-crossing is concerned?
