    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

    Hucknall also doesn't seem to have aged.
    We do have freedom of thought. Now all we need is a bit of thought.

    Because if they ran on the stage for that you would have people queueing on the sides to get on!

    I keep flicking over from BGT.
    TBH there's little difference at times. So far we've had Russian weird mouth plinky thing, some bad bazouki music and a rather fetching trio of ladyboys.
    So much for more channels providing variety.
