Eurovision 2022


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I really hope that this year I can watch it all the way through. I try every year but just get disheartened by the Europop so given your thoughts @Doctor J maybe this will be the year for me. 
 

Edit - I’ve just seen Anna’s for the final and it didn’t look half bad.

Oh dear.... I'll be honest, I'm not a Eurovision fan - it's not recent, goes back to the 1970s... Some people I know are quite obsessed with it and will be having a 'watch party' for it... I didn't make myself popular when I said I didn't like it...

We're all different, so I'm fine if it floats your boat.

My son knows someone whose sole (and entirely serious) reason for voting leave was "because they all keep ganging up on us in the Eurovision Song Contest".

Actually this year the UK is one of the top runners.

Reasonably safe bet I would imagine, given how political the voting has always been. The reason the Eurovision is such a joke is because it has absolutely nothing to do with talent. Kind of like a continent wide X Factor.

 Ironically enough, that has turned out to be as substantive a reason to vote for Brexit as any of the supposedly more serious reasons put forward.

And for this reason, we will inevitably come dead last again. It stopped being even remotely about the song years ago. Wiggy was right when he pulled the plug.

I am not either, however I was forced to watch the final as I was visiting a friend whose GF at the time insisted on watching the final...

 

It was 2006 and I loved it when the Finnish goth-monster-rock band won with Hard Rock Hallelujah, so much so I was dying with laughter...

 

Needless to say, his GF was not so happy...
