It used to be pretty entertaining when you were younger. But the songs all suck, the results are biased. UK comes last almost every year!

Yeah I’v noticed that with the UK :lol:  It is a lousy Competition IMO. And the styles of music some of the countrys come out with….its like their stuck in a 1990’s time warp

Ok Eurovision, for those non-Europeans amoung us is a singing contest started up sometime in the late 1950’s I believe (it’s late I want to get to bed but need to reply to this first for reasons known not even to myself and so have no inclination to look it up) as a friendly way of competing each other and designed to increase foreign relations particularly since memories of WW2 were still rather fresh in people’s minds at the time. Starting off with just 8 or 9 countries, I believe it was, each country would in turn sing a song and the other countries would judge each other solely on the performance given on the night and the winner would then have the honour of hosting the next contest. As more and more countries joined in and it became more popular the rules were changed so that you had semi-finals to knock out certain countries to stop the show from simply going on for too long and boring everyone and the winner of the previous year is excepted from this as they are hosting. In reality 4 (the UK, France, Spain and I forget the 4th, possibly Germany) go through automatically due to the amount of money that they put into the competition each year (not sure what happens if 1 of the said 4 countries win). Now as more and more countries have joined Europe and Eurovision itself voting (for some reason) has become very political (there was always a political element to it but never as bad as in recent years) and due to us going to war with Iraq we became rather unpopular with the more eastern European countries and so lost a lot of votes because of that, the fact that we had a load of lowsy entries didn’t exactly help matters at all really.

And whilst I’ll tend to not like the style of music thrown up at Eurovision you’ll tend to get 1 or 2 tracks that I’ll like and it’s always a good laugh anyway. I will admit that losing Terry Wogan as commentator is a bit of a blow really as far as I’m concerned but that’s just personal preference. But on the whole if you stip the show back to its bare bones it’s just a good bit of fun where we get to laugh at the foreigners once a year and they get to laugh at us in return, politics has just ruined the whole thinking behind why it was started in the first place.

I hope this makes sense and is accurate, if it not let me know and I’ll alter it when I have had some sleep and don’t have revision on my mind.
