    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 reasons'

    This forum is drinking anything alcoholic and raiding the cupboard for crisps.
    We are going to be a stone heavier by the time this has done.

    UK rejected this Austrian song as an option for Song for Europe . Good decision?

    What the fudge has this fella got on?

    Best song so far though.
