Eurovision Song Contest 2019

Recommended Posts

FWJ

The only European competition that matters.  The first semi-final is tomorrow at 8pm the second in Thursday and the Final on Saturday.

Israel is in it because it is in the EBU (European Broadcasting Union).  Australia is in because they have a special invite as it’s so popular there.

My BDS stance means I'll not be paying any attention to Eurovision this year, which is a shame as it's one of the best drunken nights in of the year.

Hope to read about the Icelanders doing something crazy though.

I don't listen to the songs, but like to watch the voting. Does that make me more or less of a weirdo?

Taking a leaf out of the playbook of the Anti-Apartheid Movement of the 60s, 70s and 80s and applying it to the wannae Apartheid state that Netanyahu is building.

Love the voting. Trying to guess who'll give full points to who based on geopolitics is my favourite part.

Friend at work said this too.

 

I’ve not heard any of the songs but I am going to a Eurovision party on Saturday. Last time I drank loads and barely watched any of it on the telly. Was still fun though.

This is dire, Georgia.

As much as it wasn’t my thing,  Czech Republic is the only reasonable one so far.

Was Iceland using a vocoder?  Thought they weren’t allowed.

 

Estonia nice and safe.  Can’t hit those high notes though.

Australia deserving 1st place but the competition is weak. Estonia 2nd and a big gap until 3rd with Iceland.

 

Estonia going for a Tom Dice style song, he did very well himself (6th in 2010 for perennially unfancied Belgium).

I think another act (Norway?) used something similar a few years ago and the rules changed since.

Cyprus, Australia, Iceland, Estonia to go through.

 

Poland going through would be a travesty. Things like Portugal is why people make fun of the whole thing.
