    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

    He's a bit smug, isn't he?

    OK, who got the the Diva from The Fifth Element out of storage? That dress was more memorable than the song, though - perhaps that was the intent

    Did Norway not get any other candidates?

    I know why Danny Cipriani is leaving Wasps- he is secretly moonlighting as a Norwegian singer

    'shoo be doo dab dab!!'

    Disqualify him immediately.
    Or better still - let him win, and let Norway pay for hosting it next year.

    No, Norway, that really ISN'T how you write a song - unless you're trapped in the 80s...
