Watching the Eurovision Song Contest. For those of you who have no idea about it, it's a song contest (duh, obviously), contested by 26 countries - in the final anyway. It's truly dire and brilliant in equal measure. I love wathcing it for the scantily clad Eastern Europeans - but don't tell the wife. I'm here dutifully scoring the contestants on their musical prowess of course. :)

A secret passion...

//EDIT

OMG - Romania have to win!!!

Even if Bonnie Tyler (UK entry) is Welsh. That's going to be embarrassing.

Watching it at the moment, not sure how that Romanian contestant got those notes that high? Hearing it in the background I was sure it was a woman in parts.

Nah only the first half :)

And BTW - Bonnie Tyler was really that bad. :(
I was laughing at Englebert Humperdink last year. I take it back.

But if Greece wins, what would they do when they come to host the next one?
It isn't like their economy can support it.

Host it in a field?

Yeah, take it back to its roots, grassroots, literally.

They were obviously saving the best for the 2nd half. Iceland, Azerbaijan, Ukraine and Italy good too.

Heh heh, I wonder what you're getting at :>

Greece so far - has to be, surely?

I agree. They won't win though. There are countries that just vote for eachother no matter the song.

Ireland - quite good. Could be a contender. Love the drums.

Did you hear that Turkey withdrew due to the girl-on-girl kiss by the Finnish entry? Hah! What did Graham Norton say? Something like "people who find a girl kissing a girl offensive, should grow up"

Still smiling at that one.

OK, I'm officially bored now. Denmark by a country mile at the mo.
