Re: Eurovision - anybody watching?

Spain is up. Can't tell you who's singing - too many letters in the alphabet.

The singer looks like something from Strictly Dancing with a short blonde haircut and nice moves. Good song but it sounds a bit turkish.

Re: Eurovision - anybody watching?

And Spain sang, "Take me, Shake me". The singer used to be an air hostess. Still looks like one.

All the finalists have sung. Now it's time to vote.

I'm off for awhile. Who do you think will win?

Re: Eurovision - anybody watching?

Turkey was really nice and now that Im watching the recap, Armenia was pretty good too! My vote goes to Turkey (inspite of my troubled past with the airline :P)

Re: Eurovision - anybody watching?

I liked Greece. The guy in the tight white jeans and the open white shirt reminds me so much of George Michael's Wham days.

Portugal and Finland are also some favourites of mine.

Re: Eurovision - anybody watching?

It's so desperately awful that I'm bleeding out of both ears and twitching weakly. The Mrs likes it and enjoys the novelty of being able to vote for the UK...

Re: Eurovision - anybody watching?

Is it just me at this time of the night or does the singer from Norway, Alexander Rybak , look like Johnny Depp?? I didn't like the song very much but liked watching him perform.. and by the likes of it alot of other people did too.

I have visions of someone in your house surrounded by sandbags, huddled over an old valve radio set, listening for messages from Europe...
