All the women were wearing the exact same sparkly silver dress that looked like a 70s lampshade over a pair of tights, all the men were wearing oversized suits in a distressing array of primary colours. The exceptions were Iceland, who dressed as the University Challenge finalists, and Germany, who had one member dressed as a giant middle finger.

All the songs sounded the same except for the three token ballads and two token rock songs, and they were equally forgettable.

Our guy was unbelievably bad

Iceland were peak Eurovision

France accidentally sent a competent singer?

Netherlands sent the Lighthouse Family

Finland sent Linkin Park

San Marino sent Flo Rida. Literally it was Flo Rida

You've met the grey man of cairngorm folklore.

Norman Collie in 1889 posted:

I was returning from the cairn on the summit in a mist when I began to think I heard something else than merely the noise of my own footsteps. Every few steps I took I heard a crunch, then another crunch as if someone was walking after me but taking steps three or four times the length of my own. I said to myself 'this is all nonsense'. I listened and heard it again but could see nothing in the mist . As I walked on and the eerie crunch, crunch sounded behind me I was seized with terror and took to my heels, staggering blindly among the boulders for four or five miles nearly down to Rothiemurchus Forest. Whatever you make of it I do not know, but there is something very queer about the top of Ben MacDhui and will not go back there again by myself I know.

Not at all. Portsmouth already has them around the place (theyre doing a city-wide rental trial). Also, theyre already everywhere! Lots of people have them, and are all whizzing about the place. Costco were even selling them at Christmas for like 2-300.

I only caught the winning song and wtf that wasn't even funny bad, just incredibly generic.

EDIT: pretty funny to end up with nil points though. Is that the first time since Gemini?

While we came last, I feel like Portugal should have joined us there. I'm surprised how little the move to 50% judge points has shaken things up.

France's entry felt like she's probably quite a good singer but she fluffed the performance on the night for some reason.

Iceland were in a tough spot with how good their song last year was but the circular keytar was a good choice

Italy gave a fun performance but it didn't feel like it should have been such a runaway victory.

And that is my Eurovision review. I enjoyed it very much.

I had to explain to mini that although we voted for the Ukraine twice, its hard to comprehend how much Eastern Europeans, the Scandinavians, and Germans adore a rock song performed well.

Amazing. My only gripe is that many if not all stores seem to have discontinued ‘bacon bits’. No idea what they actually are but they’re crunchy as gently caress and and essential salad topper along with grated cheddar.

Genetically modified wheat or something in them all it seemed, which is probably why they don't do them anymore.

the view was very bleak and death stranding-esque.

that's quite spooky, you have the approval of the midnight society :spooky:

i think being in a tent with a lonely, burly ghost would be a good premise for a eurovision act

I'm currently in the process of switching from BT to Virgin mid-contract and it's a complete loving nightmare, wish I'd never bothered. I'm having to constantly go back and forth between them to get them to talk to each other and of course every time I mention to BT that I'm calling about a potential cancellation I have to sit through their "maybe we can do you a better deal" spiel (which they can't, as Virgin's 2nd-from-bottom tier internet is 3x faster than the fastest they do). I think I'm just gonna knock it on the head and wait for my BT contract to run out.
