    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

    These are the votes from the Musical Juries. The phone vote results come later - so yes, we have to go through all the countries AGAIN for another round of voting.


    And YAY - two points for us from Latvia!

    Why do they always pick the most boring backdrops for every country? Last year it was fountains, this year it's anonymous tower-blocks.
