How can Azerbaijan win the Eurovison?
I'm a little confused here. Seeing as the traditional boundry between Europe and Asia is the Bosphorus in Turkey and Azerbaijan is 2000KM's east of there, how can they even enter!! What next? An entry from Japan?
*Note for our American/Austrailian/NZ/global members. The Eurovision song contect is a one night extravaganza where each subscribed country submits a singing act and is then judged by the others. Most people use this evening event as an excuse to go to the movies/pub or simply get an early night.

They bribe the right people? Israel have been competing for a while now...

Because it's defined by the 'European Broadcasting Area' and not the traditional boundaries for Europe.

Accept it for it is. Hilarious and camp television. I was hoping Moldova would do well. Their hats were superb. As much as I hate the brothers Grime, they had me in stitches with their daft jumping around.

Azerbajan also appear in the European Football Championships - or at least the qualifiers anyway they are currently in the same group as Kazakhstan!

+3 for Moldova - was hoping for another Lordi!
More than the Azerbaijan question.. there is a bigger question to be asked.
How the hell did we get beaten by JEDWARD!!

Hopefully Blue will get the message and go back into retirement.

I thought our song was very boring, prefered Jedwards song I thought Spain Or Ireland should have won, Spains song was pretty catchy.
But no most countries seem to always vote for their neighboor or close neighboors countries.
Just doesnt work.

Unfortunately I must hasten to add to this a little.

It used to be funny when Terry Wogan hosted it for the UK - at least he knew all of the above and joked constantly about it!

I like Eurovision, thought Hungary's song was decent as well... let the flaming begin :P

I always hope that we get 'Nil Pwan'. Blue let me down.
Anyone remember Gemini from a few years ago? I still laugh at that now. The worst singing I have ever heard. Rightly deserved 'nil pwan'.

I still want to ask the actual real important question, how are Jedward still appearing on TV?????? how are they still earning a living??????
