    The once a year Guilty Pleasure thread - IT'S EUROVISION NIGHT!!

    The once a year Guilty Pleasure thread - IT'S EUROVISION NIGHT!! 12th May 18 at 3:33 PM
    I'm surprised that there isn't a Eurovision Song Contest thread popped up already on here, so I thought I'd start one.
    I've already stocked up on 'pop' and crisps, etc.
    Norton will be on mute, and Ken Bruce will be talking through my headphones.
    Anyway, I don't care who wins (think Israel has a good shout though), 'cos we don't have a snowball's of winning. But it will be interesting to see who in Europe still hasn't forgiven us for voting out, and who still hates us for just about everything else.
    See you all in a couple of hours

    Is it not a prerequisite to stay in tune? Even if you have a red velour suit on?

    BBC are saying about the stage invasion during the UK song:

    'The stage invader is thought to have said something like: “For the Nazis of the UK media, we demand freedom,"'

    I've muted the sound on Moldova.
    After all, cellulite is just a packet of crisps that made it.

    OK, Moldova - opening sounds like a mangled version of the Strictly theme


    The staging reminds me of a cross between one of thos ekids book where you can mix and match body parts, a Loony Tunes cartoon and a mad magician act.


    All in all, my favourite so far!

    I think I prefer Moldova.
    This is just plain irritating.

    No-one in Eurovision land likes cheese much anymore, do they?
    It's a shame
