Is anyone else watching the Eurovision Song Contest? It is utter rubbish, but I feel I have to watch it to see how the politics mean that even though there are some ok songs, it's all about politics with the votes. Always makes me laugh ^^;; .

So, who else is watching?

I gave up watching it about 10 years ago... I thnk Terry Wogan puts me off more than the idea of sitting through hours of dire Euro-Pop ;)

Hehehehe we completely failed (uk). Im surprised the Irish gave us 8 points XD

And as you said, it's all political. Iraq war = no votes.

I`m watching it right now. And sadly I have to admit it, it`s all about politics. One country gives highest points to a neighbouring country just to make it look like: "Hey, you`ve received 12 points from us, you know we like you". I hate it, seriously but it`s true it`s funny too ^_^ I would Norway or Hungary to win but I don`t think they`re gonna make it... And I`m really glad that my country (Poland) didn`t make it to the final. It would too big of an emabarassment. A Russian living in Poland singing a Gypsy song, bleh :P

I agree on the votes.
I only watched it to listen to the songs (some were really good).
I'll probably switch it back to see who wins, but if I won't see the result, no regrets.

I am currently watching this. The songs were a bit strange this time and some of them were quite similar to each other. For example Greece and UK was exactly the same (song, music, singer, performance xD). And Germany was the worst - I hate the singer Gracia (she came to the Grand Prix by chart manipulation just like Switzerland).

(edit)
Oh, Greece won. I wonder why the British clones didn't make so many points xD

just saw the result, not something important unlike few years ago I watched it.
Now, if I remember it or don't have anything to do I watch it.

Not really original with countries that are allowed to sing in English intead of their own language.
Main stream songs. Like pop music and consumering selling tracks.
All are not bad but 2-3h to get good stuff, I rather better to listen to music with Indy and reading a manga.

Haha~ XD I just had to watch to see the Polish entry (thanks to Sigourney <lol>).. ah, it's amusing. ^_^' Some of them are amusing. Maybe one in ten are good. Most are, like you said, utter rubbish. I don't really care much about the politics thing, but.. oh well. I seem to watch for the cringe factor.

I don't watch it watch it, but I watch it if I'm desperate... I guess the show is ok... but some of the "talent" there is well... ^_^' It's like buying a can of tuna to find sardines inside instead o.O And strangely enough I find it funny those kids performing are my age or younger... feels so weird.. .@.@

well, it was fun as it still used to be called ....errr....this french name thing ^^;...donno how to write, but it had character and was - at least - another reason for partying^^ it just used to be a classic. but nowadays.... its not better than any stupid pop idol show, stuffed into one long night, so i just read the result in the newspaper next day. i dont think that it is much politics, its more geography....or neighborhood. therefore iam glad that greece won. uk failed, but germany has failed much more and we are against iraq-war (*lol but must admit that it was the only correct voting this evening - the act was indeed awful ^^p - and Gracias permission to perform was the same like the american president election ^^p) however, hope we'll send another comedian next year to grand prix who doesnt care about this seriously ^^p ...may then i would watch parts of it again.

suck ass!

first of all, the votes must be fixed :p, because i`m thinking, all the greeks voted cyprus and get the 12-points? this applies and others affiliations betweens countries.

also, people tend to get obsessed! >.< "aah we won" and blah blah blah... all vanity all the time T_T.
also, here (i believe this must happened to other countries too), there was a huge, enormous hype about the stupid song... hello? we cannot (out song, who cares anyways) vote so why so much hype? :S

Awww... Bucky >xd;;... and here I told you not to watch it xd;;...

Anyway... I try not to watch it ^^;;... but sometimes have to when my family is watching... why I don't watch? Well... because I know that the bands (Polish bands) that are chosen to take part in it... always suck ^^;... and I don't really want to die out of embarrassment ;p... + rarely there are bands/songs I like (from other countries) ^^;... really picky when it comes to music ;p...
