    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

    Just found a great quote about the staging this year after the organisers decided to get rid of the LED screens in a failed attempt to try and return the focus to the songs rather than the presentation (resulting insttead in the huge number of props, tricks and flames we've seen) - "In some instances we have Cirque du Soleil-level artistry. In other instances, it's just a circus."

    Used the 1/2 hour interval to do a number 2, made it back with 5 mins to spare.

    Last years winner got so bored in the middle of his interval song he shoved his head inside the piano and started banging on the frame in an effort to make the lid collapse on him and put us all out of his misery. Or at least, that's all I can suppose he was trying to do

    Forget waterboarding or torture.

    Make a terrorist sit through the whole of this including the voting at he end.

    I guarantee they would spill the beans within 3 hours of watching this!

    lots of middle-of-the boards including Austria, UK, Netherlands, Australia, France, Denmark, Moldova (for the cheese factor).

    I will be here for the voting, ooh the suspense is killing me .
