    ^ This. I never watch Eurovision. Even if the terrible music wasn't bad enough (although Dana International's entry the year she won was pretty catchy) the voting is so rigged and political that the whole thing is meaningless. I actively don't care and will go out of my way to watch anything else.

    I think you totally misunderstand the point of watching Eurovision...

    1) Listening to the barely concealed sarcasm from Terry Wogan, and now Graham Norton
    2) Listening to how bad the UK entry is - it always amazes me they think the dross we send over each year is worth more than nill points
    3) Seeing if the UK can actually make in to double digits
    4) The political voting - it's a laugh in and off itself
    5) Finding the 2 good enteries - and then being disappointed when they barely score above the UK

    But mostly - it's about Graham Nortons commentry.

    LOL yeah, he started out so optimistic and got more cynical as time went on. It's quite funny.

    Lets hope the UK actually does well this year, as always I seem to annoy the entire of my Facebook Friends list as I continue to post a song-by-song commentary on my Facebook, might keep up the tradition this year :3

    Eurovision is such a guilty pleasure. Will be getting the Dominos and a few drinks in!

    I like to watch when the votes come in, they show all the different countries, and most of them won't shut up, just keep talking crap rather than saying the result.

    I hate the Eurovision wailing contest, but we didn't come last. We came 17th. France was last. :P

    26 entries, 25 sang in English, 24 sang in a Lanauge that is foregin to them and we still can't come first . Maybe next year the UK entry should sing in French.

    Eurovision, for me, serves only as a reminder as to how immature and childish humans in large groups are. It's abominable, watching supposedly grown people behave like playground kiddies, ignoring the supposed "bring us all togetherness" and "music" for the sake of money and politics. The event itself can be a bit of fun, seeing some of the outfits, a few actual hints of talent, the sarcasm from Terry (or Norton, but I haven't seen any EV with Graham yet). Laughable even more as this year they had apparently changed the voting rules and yet nothing actually changed?

    The voting rules were the same as the last few years, with the public having 50% of the vote and a 50% to a jury. What happened this year is that they've actually published the voting results individually, which showed the public had Poland winning and the Jury had Austria winning, with Poland in last place. This doesn't show a stitch up, it just shows there were a lot of very drunk blokes hitting redial (if you watched it you'd understand why)

    Why hasn't "Eurotrash" been relegated to BBC4 yet?
