The whole thing is a waste of time - votes are cast on a regional bias basis. May as well have the competition with old records, or even have the votes with no singing.

It should be retitled The Balkans Song Contest and be done with it.

I'll just add that our entry sounds really good, pity, maybe too good for this sort of thing.

will be glued to the screen. I suspect it will be for the last time, owing to the absence of our usual Eurovision host.

I can't stand the song contest or Terry, so I will at least be spared 50% of the usual agony. Mind you, with Graham Norton taking his place I might soon be yearning for the inimitable Sir Tel's return.

As for the winner - well, with Jade being described thus in her biography:-

"Jade has the technical prowess of Whitney and Mariah, the classical timelessness of Diana Ross and the eternal cool of Donna Summer." it must be in the bag, mustn't it?

it was funny when wogan got wasted while it was on, and seeing the other drunken over seas announcers, thats all

OK,OK, I'll admit that I'll probably be watching it, I've dusted off the Octoshape plugin so that I can watch it on line.

That's my street cred ruined :(

Don't have Wogan's tolerance so gave up watching some years ago.
