Anyone watch Eurovision?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eurovision_...ntest_2012

I have no allegiance to any of these countries..I just think its interesting to watch the videos and see what each country sends as something to not only represent their countries music..but try to win the Contest.

Some countries sing in their native language..others go for english..




Host country Azerbaijan sounds like they stole Alicia Keyes style and put a hot chick up

Check out what Denmark brought..A bunch of chicks oddly dressed





Turkey..Just looks odd




Russians are obviously on crack with this one

RE: Anyone watch Eurovision?
I used to watch it when I was younger, nowadays I don't really bother although I glance at a few songs on YouTube and know who won the competition. However, two of my favorite songs ever come from Eurovision:

Final tonight. Think we should get a poll going of most fuckable singers appearing in the final. Have not seen many so far but would destroy the Israeli one.

Love the way they just introduced the Azerbaijani entry with a film about Karrabagh. Who says these things are not political?

Italian chick was bangable and I'd destroy the Romanian chick too.

It's a blast if you can just enjoy it as a show. The greek girl was pretty hot, of course it would have been disastrous if she'd won. Greece would never have bee able to pay for arranging the event next year.

I was secretly rooting for the Babushkas... darnit people, I like hot singers as much as any of you but don't forget that it's also called "Eurosong".

I have been getting constant updates from friends in Malmo. The party is raging (I had tickets to tomorrow and Saturdays finals but I had to give them up) and a lot of fun. So many hot women just having a blast.

My pick this year is Margaret Berger from Norway. I have liked her music for a while so its good to see her represent.

Damn Scandinavia is good at this event.

RE: Anyone watch Eurovision?
Norway girl has a great set of hips

I almost forgot about eurovision.
I love the gems of different countries

Montenegro...should have got more votes




If you wanna look at it from a RVF standpoint..you can also see the femininity of the countries.
Even though the singers wouldnt be "average" the style and voice is a give away of how the country runs

listen to the voice on belarus
And those heels that boost her up damn near a whole foot.
Shes dancing around looking feminine




now look at netherlands
much deeper voice..no movement

The music in Eurovision, in general, is really low-quality pop music.

That said, it's still fun to watch especially when you're in Europe and everyone's all excited and has parties about it.

I'm surprised Montenegro didn't go through. Their act was a breath of fresh air compared to the other crap. Gee - dubstep isn't poppy enough for this generation?

Eh. The acts are kinda boring this year. I'll pass on tomorrow.

I was trying to be in Malmo for this. Fucking love Eurovision it's tacky pop at its finest. Especially enjoy the EE and Balkan entries. Instead I'll b looking for where the Swedish party is in London. Any ideas?

I just love the political voting and guessing if Germany and turkey will give each 12 points

if Malta will give UK 12 points
if Greece and Cyprus will give each other 12 points

etc

Me and the lads play a Eurovision drinking game. We pick countries out of a hat and when voting happens say your country gets 12 points you pick one of the lads to take 3 gulps of ale, 10 is 2, 8 is 1. Really fucks you up, great fun.

I miss Terry Wogan as commentator. He would poke fun at odd antics of some groups but he was still into it. I think he stopped because he was so disgusted at Britain's poor performance one year.

I find it it interesting that Turkey didnt enter.
Something about the rules not being fair since the big countries always get in.
Then they banned the whole thing because Finlands entry kissed another girl during rehersal for this song

kiss at 2:50








im still confusedd about the video

RE: Anyone watch Eurovision?
Eurovision's never been my thing. Too many joke acts, not enough quality. Thanks, Lordi...

I completely lost interest when Finland sent a "punk-band" comprised of retards as their entry. (This was after the bearded lady, Conchita Wurst, won)

Yesterday, though, I caught a glimpse of some show where this bunch were commenting this years songs:

And here's the new logo:

Because Marcelo Caetano never had the vision nor foresight to bribe the jury like his old mate Franco did a couple of years earlier.

It all went downhill for Portugal after that.

RE: Anyone watch Eurovision?
Two years ago in the company of a very nice Belorusskaya, I sat down to watch the Eurovision. It was the first time I had since Lordi won it way back in 2006. I had a wager on Lordi and I won big. I had a good weekend in Killarney on the back of my earnings.

Anyway, after a painful 2+ hours, I had come to the conclusion that every single song had sounded the exact same. The same timbre, beat, act, rythmn etc. It was trashy Europop flop. My boredom was temporarily relieved by the voting which had since long descended into a political farce. Of all my 35+ years, only two songs stand out for me.

Johnny Logan's win for Ireland back in 1987 is a classic pop ballad that actually topped the charts in many European countries.




And finally, the greatest Eurovision that never was. The lovely Amina from France. Robbed by a dirge from Sweden.




Will I be watching it this year you may ask? Quick answer. No.

I believe I read Ukraine has banned the Russian singer from entering Ukraine. (who was a disabled person), as she once had a concert in Crimea.

Jeez, just seen they've even banned Steven Seagal from entering Ukraine for five years, identifying him as a threat to national security.

I like oldies, Sandy Shaw in 1967 was a class act.





Also ABBA in 1974.





But for me the best entry ever, simply hypnotizing, Ukraine's Ani Lorak in 2008 with "Shady Lady", came at second unfortunately, if she was a political act she would have won like Jamala last year with a pathetic song.





Speaking of Jamala, Russia's Sergei Lazarev also kicked ass last year...
