Well I have to say that overall it was the best Eurovision I've seen for many years, except for the ghastly set and light show.  Thank God someone made sure they turned all that horrible stuff off for our entry.  One of them was lit up like a circus and when there was a shot from above we could see that various green circles were rotating on the surface of the stage and making the whole thing look like something from Teletubbies.

I don't think the best song won by any means, but I suppose everyone was captivated by his boyish charm and decided to ignore the tinky-tonk tune and the daft lyrics.  I thought that half a dozen other entries, including ours were better than Norway, although I thought our lyrics were equally banal.  Never mind, it was a much better show than usual.  And I watched it without any alcoholic lubrication!

Despite having watched the show I still haven't heard the Norwegian entry the whole way through. Our song was dire.

I just cannot be arsed to watch it these days..It's not as if anyone can remember enough of any of the tunes/songs to be humming them the next day..It's become less about the song and everything about the singer.

Personally I think the same person should sing ALL the songs and then everyone sends in a postal vote.That way we might just get an overall consensus about the song not the singer and the programme will be that much shorter.

That sounds like a good idea, but it would be an enormous ask to have the same person singing 24 songs one after he other, and probably impossible for most pop persons.

And I'm not sure that the people responsible for it would fancy losing a big annual bun-fight celebrating the European Vision, although, of course, it is already straining the idea to include Israel, Turkey and Cyprus.

I actually quite enjoyed it last night, apart from the ridiculous set, but for the first time ever I had to watch it alone since John and Charles refused to watch it because Wogan wasn't presenting it. I though Graham Norton was a reasonably worthy successor and in fact, he said a few things rather more pointed than our Tel would have done.
