    SEMI FINALS, that is, a true festival of alternative song and dance, and quite witty, chat from Scott Mills etc.

    Probably more fun to watch than the finals, as the utterly shit entrants are the best ones.

    Given the continuing apartheid in Israel I’ll be giving Eurovision a miss this year thanks.

    Perhaps if PW Botha’s South Africa had taken part in Eurovision a bit of glittery pop would have disguised their apartheid too?

    And yes, I am great fun at parties.

    man with no socks or shoes, on now, hoping to win to be able to afford some, poor song choice though

    What sooty said.

    “We know too well that our freedom is incomplete without the freedom of the Palestinians.” Nelson Mandela

    But please remember that Jews were at the very forefront of the struggle against apartheid in South Africa, as they are indeed today against apartheid in Palestine.

    No fun watching it now that El Tel no longer supplies the running commentary.

    Excellent staging and some different commentry from Scott Mills and the other chap, some real crap songs and a few that may well win something.

    Next episode on thursday night

    I’m cheering for Norway and Iceland after the semis. British bloke has a good voice, OK song, but I’m sure that’ll be irrelevant.

    Saw Tuesday, missed last nights, will be watching on Saturday

    No fun watching it now that El Tel no longer supplies the running commentary.

    Oh contraire, Graham Norton is very good, as are Scott Mills and Wotsit Plasticface.

    I hope somewhere less controversial wins this time, it’s been a while since we’ve done a Eurovision European city break. Saw the semis in Dusseldorf and Malmo, it were brill 🙂

    Anyone else watching? Malta catchy, but Albania a bit of a dirge & has already run out of lyrics.

    Loved the German entry, they couldn’t sing for toffee but it was a good song.

    What the hell was that friend of a friend guff?

    Was odd – singer affected a bit of a geezer accent and felt a bit Johnny hates Jazz.

    Nice staging for the Russian entry, but the song quite forgettable.

    Oh JPG! I miss Eurotrash.

    Russia was very good, great vice, and not bad song.

    Slovenia…. i’m calling pound shop, the XX.

    And Sweden trotted out Chris Kamara.

    San Marino so far.

    But it’s all a bit low key this year…

    Which is probably because Israel isn’t Europe so the whole thing is even more of a farce than normal

    So far, Norway the winner, but I favour Jean Luc Picard from Sam Marino, due to the meaningless so perfectly Eurovision “na na na” title.

    Iceland for the win! Hate *will* prevail

    I thought France was quite good. Better than expected.

    my moneys on Azerbaijan so far…. although Russia will most likely take it on the block vote and the fairly slick production,

    Australia…..Kate Bush on a stick.

    I reckon Australia have just hit peak Eurovision with springy Kate Bush

    Netherlands was also good. Wouldn’t be amazed by the Aussies winning though! France still ballwank too.

    Generally a pretty good year!

    …. me Madonna would come last if she was competing in this years Eurovision… it’s bloody awful. Even had a wardrobe fail due to he wearing a load of chain mail and an eye patch… wtf.
