Eurovision Song Contest

It should be done under trading standards, and renamed Baltic/Balkanvision.
And I was disappointed in Terry Wogan too, he's usually much funnier than he was last night, but maybe he's been told to tone it down.

I've awarded my husband the gong for comment of the night - he said the French entry should have been called Four Piafs and Piano - I almost choked on my red wine.

They're really called the Fatal Picards - it's certainly killer music - next year's entry must be a top priority for Sarkozy! :)

The picture, which is very flattering, is of the winner - Serbia's Marija Serifovic, a Balkans' k d lang look-alike me thinks.

I haven't watched the Eurovision since... eh... the last time I watched it with my parents (who are currently visiting). This lot certainly had us wetting our pants too! A prime example of why the French SHOULD NOT sing in English (or wear pink and have cats and wings attached to their jackets!!!!)
Oh and the UK entry was pants wasn't it?

Yes we were pants too, Easyjet does Eurovision and I think the planes graphics must have worried them.

We actually forgot Eurovision was on and only managed to catch the end - you know, the bit where they were doling out the points. So we missed all the songs. Apart from the French one you've got here. I thought it was a spoof at first, then I remembered Scooch...

Never have the French made me laugh so much!

Oh what a hoot! I missed it because I was out seeing Alan Stivell being all winsome and melancholy and singing in Breton, and doing the little finger curling Breton circle dancing shuffle, and might well not have watched it because it just goes on for so many hours... one can only be ironic for so long. My husband who stayed in said he read a book all evening, or that's his story and he's sticking to it.
So thanks for that Apprentice, i laughed all the way through!

I hear a very strange rumour at one point that Morrissey was going to be the UK's entry.

I liked the bit when he said "Des fleurs, des fleurs, des fleurs" and ran his hands from his head down to his body like he was dripping in des fleurs. Oh my! Tres sexi-beast, n'est-ce pas?

I'm glad to see someone else liked the French entry. It should have won by miles.

Sam, problem-child-bride: Morrissey was indeed involved in talks to do Eurovision after he suggested he could do better than last year's entry, but the talks fell through earlier this year.

The problem is - no matter how good a song he came up with, the UK would still have finished in the bottom 4. It's a hiding to nothing.

Fl:ux I'm glad it gave you a laugh, I was pleasantly surprised at the French doing something other than the moody ballad.

Lucy do you get British TV in France?

Jan, that's the exact phrase, a naff pantomime, it has nothing to do with music, but at least it brings people together.

Sam I'm glad you liked the dance routine. The remind me a we bit of that "I'm too sexy for my shirt" lot.

Rob, you're rght Paul Gambaccini says the fall off in our result mirrors our intervention in Iraq, funny no-one remembers the millions who took to the street to oppose the war. I guess that's our brand abroad, which is fairly scary.

a late answer to your question!
Yes, we still get terrestrial beamed across from Jersey as there are no hills between us and them, as long as the weather is OK and the pressure not high. With digital you can get more, but we're holding out till the last possible minute!
