EUROVISION 2010

I do love a good Eurovision contest, the tacky pop songs, the even tackier fashions and just how serious the Europeans take it all. It adds up to a great night of viewing. Sadly this really requires copious amounts of alcohol as well and this year I'm up north in a camp that only serves mid strength beer. Yes you read right, mid strength beer...it's unaustralian I tell you. Onto the show....

Some highlights (or lowlights depending on your angle) of tonights final....

  • Belarus take it out for me wth the best surprise moment, not content with bringing back the front curl in womens hairstyles the three woman behind the two guys sprouted butterfly wings near the end of a very intense song. I snorted my mid strength Peroni beer out of my nose the instant they popped out .... too funny, I mean seriously watch this vid for the curls and then the wings....

  • Serbia narrowly pip Belarus for best haircut of the night with Milan Stinkbitch and his fringe....

  • Greece, what can I say about Greece...OPA!! Note the 3rd back up dancer at the start, now we now what happened to Kylies dress from that video....


  • Georgia get a guernsey not because they did anything horrendous but just because the singer Sofia Nizharadze is so damn fine, although apparently she doesn't have the ability to walk on her own....

So all up not the best Eurovision I've ever seen, no way near enough kitsch and the hosts were never crappy enough. Deep down though you coud dsee the tackiness bursting through everywhere so there's hope for Eurovision yet. The UK sucked AGAIN and can someone please explain to me why they do the votes in English and French. Everyone speaks in English on the night, they even moslty sing in English so what get's the French the second language rights? Why not in Polish as well?

The winner was definately the right choice, don't click this if you don't know who that is yet.

When I was in Portugal most people spoke French as a second language but yeah it is kind of baffling why they announce in English and French. Showing off?
Stu said…
exactly, it's not like even 25% of Europeans speak French??
I think it may have something to do with how France, the UK and a couple of others have automatic entry to each years finals. Not sure why they do but possibly there's a clause from the french that it must also be "douze points"

Someone compared das German M├Ądchen's accent to a "Swedish speech therapist impersonating Ali G". Which is about right! :D
