To make up for the deserved national humiliation...
I did better than the UK (who deserved their last place in ESC, being worse than anyone else apart from Spain) and as well as Chelsea - and I'm not going to sack my (non-existent) manager.

The Hour of the Troll won Runner-Up in the 'Best Crossover with Book' category at the Sunnydale Memorial Fanfiction Awards.

Well done! Much better than the UK, apparently.

Thank you! Olaf is undoubtedly a better singer than the UK's Eurovision entry.

They all sing better than me, but that's not really saying much.

Well done!

I didn't think we deserved to come last. Maybe 15th or so.

Thank you!

I think we deserved to come nearly last. The Spanish entry was worse that the UK's, indeed it was worse than the Permian/Triassic mass extinction event, but not much else was worse.

Believe me, I am no fan of the UK entry, but I can't see how you can say it was worse than the German, French or Bosnian entries (to name four off the top of my head). Or the Russian one for that matter.

The German entry was just as dire as the UK one, and shared last place on merit. The French one had at least the novelty value of the bearded ladies - my theory is that France was going for the (not normally highly valued) Hasidic Jewish vote - and, after all, everybody expects French pop to be appalling. I thought that the Bosnian one was moderately entertaining, at least in Bosniak - the English version that I found on YouTube was cringe-makingly awful.

And I'm not going to say anything too condemnatory about the Russian entry because I prefer my coffee without added Polonium-210.

When I add Polonium-210 to my coffee it always gives me a warm glow.

good God! Were the UK really last? Woah! I missed the whole thing. Well, looks like you were vindicated by events then.

Congratulations on the award!

I take it that you lost interest when Dustin the Turkey was eliminated in the semis?

Thank you!
sammywol From: sammywol Date: May 26th, 2008 11:17 am (UTC) (Link)
To be frank I lost interest after we won with Riverdance that time - I know, I know that wasn't the entry but I am convinced that the voters thought that it was. Since then I tuned in to watch Lordi but that has been about it - rather liked the Hard Rock Hallelujah.

It nis kind of funny over here that after a great deal of national archnes of the 'oh it's all a bit of fun' variety, since Dustin was Boo'ed and fired out of the competition there has been a flood of popular calls for heads to roll etc.
