Come on own up, how many watch this ?   I use to be an avid fan, 'we Brits' even had Eurovision parties,  :cool: I kid you not.   It became political of course and UK was always null point, or at least in the bottom three songs.

What are the odds on this year's winner,  Ukraine  ? yes even though they're at war, they're competing in the song contest and at the moment are favourites to win it.   If they do win, it will be another confirmation that the contest is a political farce.

It will probably win as you say but I couldn't listen to much of it. Perhaps I'm just an old fart.

I stopped listening to the show a long time ago. Devoting an entire evening to mediocre songs and finding out just how much the rest of the world hates us just didn't seem to be a good use of my time.

I thought maybe the Eurovision entry would be this one...



Or the English language version



Perhaps there were afraid of null points from Russia?
Ah no forgot - they were chucked out.

Bayraktar is the armed drone they got from Turkey

It's good to moan.

Not seen it in over 30 years, never could be bothered with it.

zoony

Me either. Posh frocks and forgettable melodies.

I liked Katie Boyle, multi lingual, and so elegant.  Wogan didn't do a bad job either, and we've had some popular entries. I have little interest in it these days.
Its not how old you are, but how you are old. 💖

Just checked - ABBA won in 1974 with Waterloo - bleedinellfire - 48 years ago!

I think that song is a bit boring.  We don't watch Eurovision any more.

Jacqueline

Haven't watches it since a couple of years after Riverdance, how long ago was that?  It gets worse each year and the bloke with a beard in drag finished it off completely when it won.  About time it was given a decent burial, absolute rubbish.

Michael Rolls

from what I remember I doubt that I would call it that good!

I like the song.. Sam Ryder has a great voice..
With Ukraine being the firm favourites it will be interesting to see who gets a second..


I don't watch it..
Don't ask me.. I know nuffink..

Alex

He has a reasonable voice, but the song is nothing special.  Bookies not taking any more bets on Ukraine winning  :grin:

I wonder if Putin got one in....

It's good to moan.

Alex

Nah, think Russia was banned before odds were given  :grin:
