Eurovision will start around 8PM on BBC 1 here in UK & who do you think will win this year?

My Pick: Some Eastern European Country

Why?: Eurovision is mainly politicial voting nowdays not based on talent example look at Ireland with Jedward that just shows ya
EDIT: they should now call it Politicial Comedy as alot of acts are sh*t, they get votes & its all based on politics they should only have 10 countries in it each year to make it better just like the good'ol days

I agree, eurovision isn't really about songs anymore...people vote for show more. Only thing is, that the judges only vote for the song, not the show. So at least thats a good thing. I like Sweden and Estonia myself.

Oh God, they've got an elderly gentleman sitting on a bunch of pillows.
What is wrong with these people? All this contest serves to do is remind us how freakishly unkempt most European nations are. Except Germany.
Apart from Germany they all seem like a bunch of rural bumpkins.

I don't fully understand the rules of Eurovision, but are we not allowed to use famous bands/singers ? Though even if we were, I doubt they would want anything to do with this tripe.

if that people vote for countries they like it is all political now. E. European countries will vote for each other Germany and Austria vote for each other, and since UK is hated by europe for being seen as USA's lapdogs we get few votes. that and in our country we give any duck a record deal so they are suddenly too big for eurovision. gone are the good days of eurovision (ABBA) it is not political or in some cases for show but then again music itself has become about show, only the pretty ones get to be successful, not about music anymore. VIDEO did indeed kill the radio star

I don't like nor understand the new system. I preferred it when everybody competed, not now with this crappy knockout thing. The best part for me is the voting anyways, and seeing UK get nil points everytime is pretty hilarious, or seeing Ireland give us 12 points because they feel sorry for us. The low point was definitely that flight attendant group we had one year, Scoop I think they were called. And I miss Wogan and his great way of taking the piss, Graham Norton isn't bad but Wogan was better.

I watched it one year with my nanna, and nothing gets her more angry than foreign people. She was pretty angry the whole night, although she did keep commenting how "Fern Britton looks so lovely". I tried telling her it was Fern Cotton, and not Fern Britton (google them and you'll see there's a big difference) but she wouldn't listen.

We are, infact the east side of europe have their best singers on the contest unlike the main european countries like UK, France, Germany, Italy etc JLS rumored of wanted to do it this year but we get an old man from the 60s
(I hate JLS anyway)
we could have Jesse J, Plan B, Coldplay, Susan Boyle, Tom Jones, Take That not saying i like any of these but they do have a chance of winning unlike the junk we ut on each year but i guess its better than Ireland with Jedward jesus if you dont know who they are just look at them

I don't think he'd really want to do it lol.gif As I still think due to the aforementioned political reasons we would still lose and no famous musician would really want to be seen losing to some of those bands. Plus nothing says desperate to regain career as this contest, to Britain anyway.

Though, Andrew Lloyd Webber got involved. Though we still did not do well.

It's amazing how a song is electronic and there is a acoustic drum kit on stage. And also a drummer, who's not even a real drummer. Don't forget background vocalists who are singing the same sh*t the lead is singing, and you can't even see them. Eurovision rules.

Russia is bullsh*t, there, i said it...
I really don't see why do they vote for them? The only thing that attracts votes are that the singers are old...ofc, when i mean singers, i mean these old ladies who can't sing actually. SOng is stupid, just look at the lyrics. I really don't like EV anymore, because they don't judge fairly.

Or Europeans are predominantly tacky, nostalgic weirdos who enjoy watching bewildered elderly women prance about like diseased cretins.

France is our biggest ally, declares Obama: President's blow to Special Relationship with Britain

Barack Obama has declared that France is America’s greatest ally, undermining Britain’s Special Relationship with the U.S.

The President risked offending British troops in Afghanistan by saying that French president Nicolas Sarkozy is a ‘stronger friend’ than David Cameron.

The remarks, during a White House appearance with Mr Sarkozy, will reinforce the widely-held view in British diplomatic circles that Mr Obama has less interest in the Special Relationship than any other recent American leader.

That show is an absolute joke. I and all my familly and everyone I know that was watching voted for the UK and I'm still at a loss at how they only got 4 off us? Also It's just the same countries voting for eachother over and over again. How can a couple of f*cking grannies get that many points? At this stage I think all the western countries should give up and leave let all them eastern european countries have fun voting in circles.

So you're annoyed at the fact that countries vote in blocks and for their neighbours, yet that's exactly what you yourself did? And Sweden won, they are a western European country and they were one of the best acts. I don't really get what you're bitchin' at.
