Furgiven, but not furgotten


I've been getting more and more into Eurovision because my boyfriend is a massive Eurovision nerd

He not only watches the final contest, but at least half a dozen of the various countries' national finals in the lead up. February through May each year I hear so much eurotrash at home, its seeping into my brain

I'm going a little bit Kreisí ( if anybody at all gets that reference)

Fill the airtime where they would normally broadcast it talking about how mean and bad Eurovision is and how they totally would have won... I guess.

The former Soviet bloc countries are going to be so lost this year. Who will they give their yearly 12 point tribute to? (Probably each other.)

A couple of actually fun songs this year, but nothing that just jumps out as amazing.

Closest thing we have to peak Eurovision is a guy in an ape suit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mj6tVGKzfhU

Edit: I suppose Montenegro has some potential. And Moldova has RETURN OF EPIC SAX GUY.

I'm really liking the UK's entry this year. Feels like the first time in decades that we figured out that sending a decent song instead of some novelty/X-Factor loser/exhumed corpse might be a strategy.

Sadly this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Xo_ua6sfbM won't be gracing Eurovision this year.

Moldova is sending Sunstroke Project back to Eurovision. They're the group with Epic Sax Guy and Neon Violist.

It'll be hard to compete with Romania's Yodeling Shakira knock-off, though.

withdraw because their singer was banned from entering Ukraine after she illegally entered Crimea

I like the horns backing track. The singing, eh, not so much

If Italy wants to win, they should pay Talco to remix St. Pauli for Eurovision




e: everyone in Finland that voted for their lovely rear end ballad is retarted. Y'all won with Lordi of all bands. Do more of that. It works. Its different. Its a winner. gently caress YOU

Italy has the best song, but Sweden's entry puts on the better show, I think. So it's going to be between them for first, probably.

Unironically upset that this guy didn't win the Swedish finals. He's got a nice voice and is supposedly a former criminal or something, so that sort of makes up for not putting on a spectacle.

Edit: this off-brand Cillian Murphy sex doll won.
