    Teaser trailer for Netflix's Eurovision, starring Rachel McAdams, Will Ferrell, Pierce Brosnan and Dan Stevens:


    :)) not a fan of the contest though with Will Ferrell involved this is bound to be utterly stupid, so I will watch it.

    Still not watched this since Katrina and the Waves were in it. I think Terry Wogan was still hosting the show.

    I'm not generally a fan of Montaigne's sound, but her song 'Clip My Wings' is real good.

    I'm really not a fan of Montaigne's entry, but thought it sounded much better when she performed it live at Mardi Gras.

    Mostly horrible to listen to, as always. However, some songs would work on the radio and gain popularity before the finals. My bets are on Belgium, Croatia, Finland, Ireland, Malta and Spain.

    And check this out: San Marino and Serbia seem to sing the same song - brilliant!

    Those atleast get some fame or big fame in The Netherlands

    1997: Katrina And The Waves (England, Winner)
    1998: Dana International (Israel, Winner). Edsilla Rombley (Dutch, one of the host in 2020 and 2021) end 4th place. In 2007 she give it another try, but without succes.
    2000: The Olsen Brothers (Denmark, Winner)who started as 13th. Act Dutch people only can follow on Belgium channel or BBC. Because this nightmare year of Firework disaster in Enschede on same day earlier in afternoon. After ''Linda Wagermakers'' did her performing for The Netherlands (Started as 12th) the program stops.
    2003. Everyway that i can (Turkey, Winner)
    2004: Ruslana (Ukraine, Winner)
    2008. Hind (Dutch)
    2009: Alexander Rybak - Fairytale (Norway, Winner)
    2010: Lena - Satellite (Germany, Winner)
    2012: Loreen - Euphoria (Sweden, Winner)
    2013: Anouk - Birds (Dutch, 9th place)
    2014: The Common Linnets (Ilse Delange & Waylon) - Calm After The Storm (Dutch, 2th Place)
    Carl Espen- Silent Storm
    Conchita Wurst - Rise Like A Phoenix (Austria, Winner)
    2015: Måns Zelmerlöw - Heroes (Sweden, Winner) Guy Sebastian - Tonight Again
    2016: Douwe Bob - Slow Down (Dutch)
    2017:Og3ne - Lights And Shadows (Dutch) Salvador Sobral - Amar Pelos Dois (Portugal, Winner)
    2018: Netta - Toy (Israel, Winner) Waylon - Outlaw In ‘Em (Dutch)
    2019: Duncan Laurence - Arcade (Dutch, Winner) Guy Sebastian - Before I Go

    It possible that are some others songs from 2017 or 2018 get some fame.

    Asking Hind was not a bad choose, but then it take till 2013 when The Netherlands send Anouk and some other great ones exept Trijntje Oosterhuis (Who overall i prefer when she was part of group Total Touch). Duncan Laurence (With Ilse Delang be one of the producers, writers of the song.) have atleast three other hits after Arcade.

    Technically, yes, they should. The BBC is still a membr of the European Broadcasting Union. And the UK hax been part of the Eurovision Song Contest since 1957, way before it joined the EEC, and later on the EU. Plus, if Israel takes part in the contest, why not the UK ?

    So The Netherlands won 5 times, Belgium only ones and there is one Bond artist. Lulu won in 1969 with 3 other winners, 5 years before TMWTGG.

    65th edition of festival is now on 18, 20 and 22 May 2021.

    The best of those must be Norway s Nocturne, and the worst probably the Latvian winner.

    I suppose this contest will be one thing that we won't have the good fortune of being cancelled due to the pandemic then?

    Alas, this shameful event with politically motivated, talentless singalongs for the masses is going to happen, no matter what, @Dragonpol. I wouldn't mind so much if it wasn't for the fact that this BS keeps the news and pretty much everything people talk about for a week hijacked. It's an insult. ;-)
