Broke the 100 points barrier - well done Blue.
IMO best song was bosnian
is there someone from here that heard macedonian song? if yes i want to know what you mean-we didnt made it into final
will hil ranked us at last place
We did all right this year; I suspect (for right or wrong - probably for wrong) it was down to our act's recognition factor across Europe. But we far from deserved to win. Azerbaijan certainly had a radio-friendly ballad as Norton pointed out, but it was hardly remarkable. And they benefitted greatly from the usual political voting. Yet, I've nothing against former Soviet countries getting the chance to host a party like Eurovision and show off - let's be honest, their populations had little really to celebrate and be proud of for so many years.
Glad Jedward did barely better than us in the end, must say - pair of little ****. The Danish entry wasn't bad, mind, while the Italian one was actually quite good. And I rather liked the first one - by Finland, I think? - because I'm getting old and in need of a pipe and slippers, no doubt.
Oh, and by the way (shameless plug alert!)...
100 points though, very good I thought - and on the left hand side of the scoreboard.
But really that show is where my wife and me part ways for an evening. I'd rather watch a Timothy Dalton movie than watch that bloody contest.
and dalton is great actor,every movie with him is good just cause he is in it :)
I must admit that this year, I didn't follow it (Hawaii Five-0 was on another channel, and since BSG, I have a crush on Grace Park). But I do admit that the Moldovan entry was the kitschiest. I don't mind regional costumes, but the unicycle? As for the winner: Very 80s, not in a bad way but still bland. Where was Lordi when we needed them?
And every single act would love to break through in the UK, more than anywhere else. After USA we remain the major market for world pop.
How was Italy?
How was San Marino?
How was Belgium?
Was the Azerbaijan song a deserved winner?
San Marino - Belgium I don't know if they were involved in the main event - if they were they were forgettable.
The Azer's was a cliched ballad - so your choice really - you love that sort of thing or you don't.
I personally loved the Hungarian, Spanish and Moldavian entry.
And the Hungarian presenters big melons.
For the record, my own Germany did quite alright (at least we topped off Blue and the UK), but then I never thought it to be a clever idea to have lovely Lena defend her title. Worst entries IMHO were Greece :-(( #-O ~X( and the wannabee Miley Cyrus from Estonia. Azerbaijan just won because they actually got votes from practicaqlly every country apart from Armenia...
Anyway, I think it's fair to say that other nations who've won the thing in recent years probably wouldn't had tactical voting not come into play (Russia, Serbia, Ukraine and Estonia)...
Well, The ESC has been loinked to Bond on at least two occasions. First, Isabelle Aubret sang the french version of "Do You Know How Christmas Trees Are Grown" on the french dub of OHMSS. And second... Well, one name will be enough: Lulu. Any other hopefuls (because that's all the winners I can think of) have been linked to Bond before or after they entered the contest?
I'm pretty sure Sweden will win this time... :)
Don't see it winning. Everything is possible, but frankly, I'm pessimistic.
"Echo" is something i haven't heard before. Pretty original and I love it :)
"Euphoria" is pure art. Stockholm 2013
Don't worry too much samuel? I won't! ;) lol
