Eurovision - Words in the Heroes' Tongue

Eurovision
Watching Eurovision.

One would have thought it impossible for anything to be worse than Jedward but so far Russia, Greece, and Italy have all managed it. And the Russian even managed to beat Jedward for the position of Eurovision Contestant I'd Most Like To Punch In The Face.

I'm waiting for Georgia: a very good song being sung by a girl who is the spitting image of Michelle Trachtenberg and has a decent voice and a superb stage presence. And who will, no doubt, be beaten by something utterly appalling.

Is Eurovision like our American Idol?

Not really.

Elisi explains Eurovision.

The above is a link - they just don't show very well in this colour scheme - click it and see!

Well no wonder you want to watch, that's just silly fun!

I thought the German song was rather good. It can't possibly win. In fact, it'll probably be last.

I'm just happy that after this evening, and tomorrow's coverage, and Monday's analysis of why we ended up dead last again and why the Russians are evil, it'll all be over with for another six months.

Man, I wish there was some way we could just get disqualified for ever and ever.

I thought Italy had been booted out, or had refused to participate or something. But after 14 years they came back for more.

Sometimes, you just have to accept it. People are weird.

Blue=UK.
Jedward=Ireland.

Jedward are Ireland's entry, not the UK's. It's the 'My Lovely Horse' gambit again - Ireland can't afford to host the show so they've put up the worst possible act to make sure they don't win.
