    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

    We do have to bear in mind that the Musical Juries make their decisions based on the final dress rehearsal, not the live show, so things may have gone differently there...

    Oh, I'm so torn. I hated Sweden's song but if we go back there next year we might get Petra presenting again, and I kinda have a bit of a crush on her

    i'm not liking the booing from the audience, Serbia didn't deserve it earlier and the woman from Russia didn't either (they started booing long before she declared the 12 points for Moldova ).

    Have Austria suddenly discovered oil reserves or something? I don't understand this voting from 'musical experts' at all ...

    I'm really not getting this from the "expert" judges - Austria was meh and Sweden were poop.

    I don't know that it will be the same after the public vote though. But it's still a better song than the one we sent, and we rejected it.
