    Default Eurovision

    Right, since no-one else seems fit to mention it, it's happening tomorrow night.
    Who will you vote for?
    If you want to check out how fit.. sorry, how good the songs are, go to:
    www.eurovision.tv/english/index.htm

    My vote is for Israel..

    Hey hey, time for more skimpy-clad women to woo the juries and men at home in those few countries allowed to vote.

    Let's face it, no-one watches it for the singing, its for the women and Terry Wogan.

    The Norwegians will have to fight hard to get less points than us Finns.
    If you're fighting fair you've made a miscalculation.

    Eurovision is a great way to get yourself motivated to do something better on a Saturday night... I taught myself how to juggle whilst watching Eurovision... The caterwauling on the telly forced my brain to concentrate on the juggling!
    Still, at least there is more talent on it nowadays (and I'm not talking about the singing).

    Terry Wogan is a genius at this time of year, especially 3/4's of the way through when he is drunk and doesn't give a damn.

    3/4 of the way through? If you ask me he must be on the sauce from about 9 am.

    It certainly does seem as most nations have worked out that the international language is not music but good looking women. (Except Norway ho ho ho. And the standard you have to meet to be a superstar in the Ukraine seems to be pretty low too.)

    (Note to Norwegians. Terry Wogan, who has presented the UK Eurovision show for about the past 600 years, can be relied upon to make many "Norway nil points" jokes every year. Its sort of a running joke. But we aren't generally rude about Norway never fear.)

    As said above, the only way to win is to distract from the song.. look at how Javine won the qualifiers after she 'fell out'..

    Terry Wogan is the guy that comments on the show for the BBC. He is a comedian, and likes to taken the piss out of the hosts and the singers...

    Yes, he called the presenters one year "Doctor Death and the Tooth Fairy". He always cringes when they start talking in rhymes, only they might change from French to English to make a rhyme. He called the winning entry last year "And here it's Zelda, Warrior Princess!".
    If the UK wanted to win on the girl side, they should have chosen Jorsan. She has the biggest amplifiers I have ever seen!

    Yes, at least we did that. I think the swiss entry "Why don't you kill me?" sums up the whole event. But wasn't the female presenter awful? She sounded as though she didn't know she had a microphone and had to shriek everything
