I saw the news last night and for a glorious moment I thought we had failed to qualify for the finla, and that all those who had came from Eastern Europe. Apparantly though we get an automatic bye into the final.



And I seem to be displaying far too much knowledge about this.....

LURVE eurovision - won't hear a thing said against it!

In no particular order, the best things are

1. Terry Wogan, as his smart arse comments
2. The crap music
3. The Kitsch
4. The voting for ones neighbours and not ones enemies
5. Terry Wogan
6. Terry Wogan

Look there is nothing wrong with Terry Wogan that a good snorker and a basket of muffins would not fix. He has 8 million listeners every morning and he makes me laugh.

SF you make me laugh but that is because you frighten me!

Sir Terry for PM!

Ah, that age-old needle match between the the W. European bloc, the E. European bloc, the Scandinavian bloc plus Iceland, and the Balkan bloc, (not forgetting, of course, the usual rigmarole involving Turkey, Greece and Cyprus), with everyone except Holland and Eire putting the boot into the UK because of Iraq.

Never mind the music, feel the politics. Thank goodness for St Terry who gives it all the 'gravitas' it deserves. (Not that I ever watch it myself, you understand.) :oops:

Bang on!
And I won't be watching the Spanish TV version of it tonight! Which will be about as dry as week old toast.
Plenty of good wine and food laid in though to ensure there is no memory of the thing tomorrow.
I miss St Terry and reckon that Sarah Kennedy should get a knighthood. I've almost driven off the road on account of some of here comments.

Actually, in all fairness I think some of the bands are relatively good. The Finnish band last year was rather, different. It will be interesting to watch and besides, Eurovision easily beats a lot of the crap that producers put on television anyway (ie: Big Brother, I'm a Celebrity...Get me out of here!, etc).
