Russia. This HAS to be the summer hit 2012. (and it is not even a joke - this IS the Russian song this year!!!)

PARTY FOR EVERYBODY!!!

Yes! They have just performed.

Someone suggested they all fit inside each other, and thus save on the air fares!

Thank you Sbrinz! I started to think that I was the only person watching it.
You are! It is, as always, AWFUL!

Have you seen the two fat Austrian pole dancers? They do distract from the Rap song, and I have my eyes on the poles, maybe they are made of carbon fiber? They seem to be strong enough!

I really don´t know what to think now. There are a lot of miraculous elements in this year´s performances. Like the Montenegro

How ever I must say the Swiss guys are really good, compared to the others. Of course no one tops Russia

Re: It's EUROVISION Week!!!

Hi my name is SwissMs2000 and I'm a Eurovision contest junkie.

Favorites so far are Switzerland & Romania. The singer from Israel reminds me of Sacha Baron Cohn Lady with the birds nest was trying too hard to be Björk. Will be interesting who moves on.

As nationalistic as I am, I still find it a pity they let that horrendous Canadian do the dirty deed back in '88. It would have been FAR more honourable to LOSE!

I liked Latvia and it didn't make it..neither Switzerland.
Anyways, the Babushkas were cool!

Thank you Sbrinz! I started to think that I was the only person watching it.

But I disagree with your comment on the winners. Everybody remembers celine dion ( winner of 88) and abba (winner of 74), but may be it is forgotten that they won the eurovision because their following productions were even greater.
So, like 2 groups/artists out of how many entries in how many years?

Re: It's EUROVISION Week!!!

So, I just listened to the Swiss song on youtube for the first time....and I must say, that it would have potential.....take a trip outside your hound...don't kill me more....sream against a sream (possibly an old saying from where the boys are from actually meaning "shrimp against a shrimp" which stands for each to their own)

Sure by far the cutest and best performance. But I can't belive the crazy Irish twins got voted in.

Everything sounds the same more or less, pretty interchangable. And who in their right mind voted for the lady with the vipers' nest on her head?

Well from these group of buffoons two global success is already a big achievement. Expecting more would be unfair, don't you think?
