Re: It's EUROVISION Week!!!

Ok, I have watched some acts now that are all really awful.
What makes me wonder most now is the quality of my own country's, Holland, song. I have never heard it but if they could not make it to the final then how bad must it have been?

It is now certain that next year IKEA will sponsor the contest. So, no jumping on the platform

They won! They were not bad, plus, they can afford to organize the next contest without ruining their public budget..
Congrats, Sweden!

I voted for Turkey, but only 3 points was given
I also voted for Romania..and 0 points from Ch. But I also voted for Moldova, equally - 10 times, and was happy to see they got 2 points from CH. The points that are given are not depending only on the poblic vote, but there is also a jury involved, as far as I understood..

I like Sweden's song though, although I would have loved to see the Babushkas winning!

But you have to say, hats off to both Britain and Norway for being so completely graceful in defeat. Wonderful to see such a sporting and gentlemenly response.

Good luck to them both next year!

You are absolutely right. But the problem is that the jury should not have such power in a very public contest.

Otherwise it will be like Hunger Games

Re: It's EUROVISION Week!!!

BAsically its a farce because all the baltic and asian and ex-yugoslavian states vote for each other, no matter how bad the song is. Makes me wonder why they had to massacre one another and separate in the first place, since they love each other so much. The Swedish song was good, but so was the Spanish, or the Moldavian, or the German for that matter. It's a real shame that countries get voted according to how popular they are and not according to how good the music is. You could more or less predict which country would get points from who. Sorry for Hump, he didn't deserve to be second but last.
