Eurovision semi-final one - Words in the Heroes' Tongue
I have a variable-sword. I urge calm.
Eurovision semi-final one
Watching the first of the Eurovision semi-finals. So far Denmark's song has been the best by an enormous margin but the most interesting thing has been Ireland's blatant play for the gay vote. Their contestant brought his priest along to support him - which, when you think about it, is weirdly appropriate.

And the Serbian entry is so utterly dreadful that it exposes a previously unsuspected weakness in the English language. None of the synonyms for 'dire' are sufficiently condemnatory.

Update: Serbia failed to qualify for the final. My faith in humanity has been restored.

I'm surprised the Irish want to be in it... can they afford to host it if they win? The BBC is quite safe because nobody ever votes for us...

Maybe the Irish have decided that the Pink Pound (or Pink Euro?) will make up for the expense of hosting the event. Or they think that they're so broke a bit more debt won't be noticed.

The Danish entry is my vote to win the whole shebang; nice to have a UK entry that I'd consider voting for if I could as well.
