    I still vote for my country to drop the Eurovision Contest, specially if they lose to the UK.

    Can well see the UK getting 0 points its a terrible song
    would love another Channel to take over, The selection process from the BBC is a joke.
    We've got such a huge array of Music and styles and again Cruise Ship melody main "choice"

    For me switzerland/netherlands/australia, one of those will win. Swedens was good, I thought denmarks song was simply beautiful, I personally liked norways song the chorus had a very similar tune to another song that I cannot remember.

    As for the UK, well yeah its bottom 3 for me, nothing special and simply too cliche. Along side albania and slovenia.

    I wasn't sure watching it but judging by the Israeli reaction to her performance I think she might have put Israel on blast, which is going to be awkward for the media because she's some kind of Jewish (Kabbalah right?).

    Either way the reggae section was a banging melody, waaaaaaay too much auto tune on the vocals but I'd put the melody on my play list. Gonna have a YouTube search tomorrow on Quavo.

    Think so, gets expensive if you have to move the mediapark to there, and prolly having a vote time far after midnight will be nasty.

    It was deserved. As soon as the wife pointed out the German song wasn't about Wincest then it fell flat, the UKs entry was equally milquetoast.

    Sweden should of won though, an actual track with notes of acid house and a whole lot of Gospel. Would do pretty well in the UK charts and I wouldn't feel incensed.

    Personal favourite for me was San Marino. It featured the lyric "be the hero of the rainbow" and was so utterly sleazy that there is no way in hell the song wasn't about sexually assaulting someone.

    Still going to happen. Eurovision is just a massive corrupt festival were friends/neighbours vote for others. Eurovision as it is now should be scrapped and reworked. Make it a podium for talent and not hidden political messages to friends/enemies.

    Lighten up..... It is to Europe what Miss Universe is to the rest of the world. One huge joke but quite funny.

    Honestly while watching I would basically go "yep, this is better than UK's entry" I did that for all but 2, albania and slovenia. I guess it didnt help that both of those songs weren't sung in english but they just lacked any sort of emotion and catchiness.

    The best song won in the end, swedens was really good so to was australias (Which bombed in the public voting, probably because, well, they aint in europe), switzerlands should have finished higher imo, my personal favourite was norway I loved the chorus and it was a real fun song but they never get the votes, oh and demarks song was just simply beautiful.
