No way. The Eurovision is the best on tv when it comes to comedy XD

Perhaps we could do the same with football - just 1 match every 5 years?

just 1 match every 5 years?

Why that often?

Be like me, ignore it.

I wasn't even aware it was coming up until this thread!

Now if you were talking about Formula 1.................!

I'm with morddwyd. These days I cannot be bothered to watch it. Our entry is always well down the votes, now whether that is due to the song, the singer(s) or the politics of the other countries I do not know, but will leave that for speculation of the learned members of this forum.

I was PRIVILEGED, yes privileged, to have front row seats for the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest at Brighton.

That was the year that Abba won with Waterloo and it really was a spectacular show and very entertaining and I got to meet virtually all of the contestants, including Olivia Newton John, before the show.

A really great event and nothing at all like the present day, which leaves me cold.

Eurovision Song Contest

Every Song Crap

Actually the formula 1 idea isn't bad, forget the tedious live coverage and boring travelogue clips, just do a potted highlights and the final scoring, get the whole boring farrago done in half an hour.
