Eurovision worth watching again...

  [DELETED] 08:18 05 Dec 2008

Terry Wogan is stepping down as commentator on the Eurovision Song Contest after three decades.

Fellow Irishman Graham Norton will take over for the 2009 contest, which will be hosted in Moscow.

never know - new brush sweeps clean etc,.- and there's 35 years worth of cobwebs to clear. :)

Today's paper reports that Terry's reason for leaving is that he thinks the voting is rigged between neighbouring countries. He's commentated on it for 35 years, and he's only just come to that conclusion...?

I heard that the voting is to be combination of a Jury and a phone-in from the public. The claim is this will prevent strategic voting by eastern bloc countries.

More likely it is another money making scheme by the broadcasters?.

Why on earth was this little nauseating person chosen to replace Terry. I have never seen what is funny about effete men either pretending to be or advertising the fact that they have certain abnormal tendencies.

all of the time.
whoever they had chosen would upset someone or other.
Think yourself lucky you might have got Ant & Dec ;)

Why the UK take part in the farcical European song contest is beyond comprehension

They've had phone voting on Eurovision for years, I think they're bringing back the juries to provide balance...

Because we were one of the original founding nations of the European Broadcasting Union, which came up with the idea for a Eurovision song contest.

Many people think that the contest is in some way connected with the EU, but it isn't; you don't have to be a member state of the EU to participate.
