Something I've been tuning into since Puppet On A String days.It's a display of campness unparalleled by anything else on the box.You can usually expect some country coming up with something outrageous.Most of the tunes will be dire, some will be quite catchy.You can really on the block votes,politically biased towards someone or other.I'm expecting the British entry to be nationalistic to the max,plenty of union jacks etc.I doubt this will go down well with the rest of Europe.I hope Isreal get the reception they diserve,and it will stretch on and on.Anyway will anyone else be tuning in?

I'm watching. Post Brexit vote this could be a laugh.

I'm expecting a lot of "Breetun... null pwa"

Also, in amongst the pish ballads there's always some nutter from Eastern Europe doing something that sounds like Devo while riding a unicycle.

It's on my telly now. Since the 70's I've thought it was sh*te. I thought the Wogan commentary was priceless. Maybe I'm getting gold

Apparently some sort of protest during the British song.








Anyway...

It was probably the noise from the shitey song? They thought people were booing, in fact that was the chorus.

I'd rather gouge my eyes out and pour acid in the sockets.

Isreal for me. It was like Beth Ditto having a meltdown in Kavos.

Ah yes, those well known european destinations, Israel and Australia....
Its based on some sort of music industry definition of "Europe" apparently. Technically Canada are allowed to enter too.

Is it over yet?

To be fair I used to like it before it got political, or I noticed it was political!

It now seems to be some paragon of diversity. I'd suggest it's nothing of the kind and does not a lot to represent European, or a few other random, cultures.

Sham.

So it’s basically a white people’s competition?

I think I got Hungary in the office sweep.


Or it may have been just hungry in the office.


Did I win?
