I’ve not really paid much interest in the entries this year but I will be watching tomorrow night. I think our entry isn’t a bad song but it kinda lacks something. Can’t say what exactly but it feels very amateurish.

IMHO Waterloo by Abba was the best entry/winner EVER when you've witnessed the best never mind the rest.

The Chinese are not showing the Euro vision this year because the Irish entry features 2 guys dancing together under the rainbow flag. Nothing to do with the song.

They claim to be an all inclusive society, but seemingly this is just too inclusive for them!

I love Irelands entry! Not sure it's very Eurovish, but a really lovely piece of music..

Seemingly we are in the top 5 favourites! Considering we haven't made the final for the past 5 years, this is a big surprise.

I shall be indulging in the cheese fest this evening. That’s if I get my housework done today.

We've done our family sweepstake so we're all set, the excitement is building! Helped along by speaking to one of our neighbours yesterday who is from Romania, lived in Hungary and now living here! We've had such a laugh about it!

Oh no poor SuRie!

Hmmmm, not good but might get the sympathy vote.

She has had the chance to perform again and has chosen not to...

I don’t blame her. How did that dick get on the stage? It was like Jarvis Cocker all over again.

12-05-18, 10:51 PM
They could have been armed. How did they get on stage in the first place?

Ireland was good. I liked Germany and Netherlands. The Estonia entry, that woman’s voice was impressive. We’re a few decent entries.

I’ve just watched back the UK performance from last night to confirm my thoughts on it and I genuinely believe that the stage invasion actually helped her. She was imo playing safe and it was hard to believe in the song but after that moron, who I’ve just learned has done this TWICE before, she seemed to let go. Still a horrible thing to have to experience and her performance will be remembered for all the wrong reasons. Credit to her for continuing.

I just don't see how he was able to even get up on stage.... That shows a complete lack of security surely -in this day and age where (let's be honest) it would have made a great terrorist target...

Although Israel was typical of Eurovision I still don't think it deserved to win...

I am wondering if Brexit has anything on the public vote from other countries, her song was better than others.

I thought that GB's entry was pretty good. I think it's all political. I don't know why GB bothers! I think poor old SuRie did really well all things considered...bah humbug!(knitting)
