Really? That's today? Oh no, I'm missing it!

.....

Nope, I can't even pretend to care, sorry. I don't even know who "we" (the Netherlands) sent this year.
And we never get a high place anyway.

You sent some lady who apparently was a bit rude and risque and some practice-run. Her dress at the show was decent enough.




I kinda hoped she'd be naked.



Finland; what the fuck?

Oh gawd, I just checked the Eurovision website out of curiosity and discovered we sent Trijntje Oosterhuis.

Bleeeehhhh. We're not progressing to the finals, I'm guessing.
As we almost never do.

Someone just wrote a text to the Danish commentator telling him to 'do something' about the Armenian song.

It was the second song. And I doubt they had 126 people on stage; bit above the allowed 6. Skywise Wink

Serbia's singers hair reminds me of those things you use to scrub pans with.

anyone know what we sent this year? I've been without proper internet and missed all of the build up. More to the point, do I want to know what we sent this year and should I apologise yet?

What did you guys think about the Norvegian song? Loved the song, but didn't feel the eurovison feel over it, Sweden had a great song Smile Gash, I had a lot of favorites this year, I like MGP.

I think it's fun how I totally didn't agree with the newspaper's opinion - the songs they hated, I felt were okay, and the songs they loved, I never wanted to hear again.

I think the Norwegian song was okay, but you're right about it lacking the eurovision feel, Blackbird. I'm just happy we didn't send the pizza song - how can someone honestly think that would have won? Shocked

OMG..the pizza song...I thought that was just a joke, how did it even get in there?? They should have know most people have such a crappy taste of humor, so it get a lot of votes Razz

What song did you like?
A Monster like me is a song I could picture in a musical or something Razz

I liked the Norwegian song, especially for choosing a serious topic... but it was against a pretty stiff competition. My favourites were Azerbaidjan (Elnur's voice is a-ma-zing!), Montenegro, Slovenia, Italy and Estonia, though... but when I heard the Swedish entry the first time I sort of knew the winner. That stuff is ESC material.
I'm not even disappointed that Germany and Austria got 0 points... Ann Sophie and The Makemakes reacted professionally: http://www.dw.de/heroes-to-zeroes-ann-sophie-takes-eurovision-defeat-in-good-humor/a-18473878

That's what I figured too. I know some of the songs aren't too serious, but that was just ridiculous Neutral

@Blackbird wrote:

Ah, I didn't think of that, but now that you say it, it would be great for a musical!

I haven't listened to all of the songs, but of those I heard I really liked Montenegro's, I though Israel's was catching and San Marino's was cute. The Swedish was catchy too, I suppose, but I had to hear it twice before I remembered the lyrics and for me, a winner song should stick after the first time Razz But congrats, Sweden!

My alltime favorites would be Fairytale from 2009 and Helene Bøksle's "Vardlokk" from 2011, a real shame we didn't send that, but "Haba Haba" was very catchy too, though

Yay, I like the serious songs as well! We need more of them, I'm honestly thinking of writing one myself. I think I'll entitle it Lacrymosa.

Yup, the original winner, Andreas Kümmert, withdrew because the ESC would have caused him "too much stress" (something he MIGHT have known before taking part in the competition...).

Here's the story: http://www.dw.de/germany-startled-by-its-eurovision-winners-withdrawal/a-18299788

Don't think Germany would have scored any better even if they had sent that straggly beard instead of Ann Sophie...
