    It`s always the Ex-Soviet countries voting for each other.
    I think we should do what Terry Wogan said and get all the West European countries to pull out of it.

    I`m so glad Sweden ended up on the bottom.

    Pricks actually think they have a chance to win with their sh*tty music.

    The voting is political. Most countries vote for their neighbours or friends. The fact that Britain had a black lead signer and half of the countries voting have never seen a black person before (because of the immigration policy) might have something to do with it. And can someone tell me how Israel can get to be in a European song contest?

    Agree with the people saying that it`s crappy music and that most East European countries vote for each other.
    But it is actually quite entertaining to watch because most performances are so incredibly bad.

    Block voting happens, but everyone except for a few unfortunate countries, everyone does it, so in my opinion it basically is balanced out. Also, note that there is no universal bloc votes - i.e. not all eastern europeans voted high for Russia. most bloc votes were for neighboring countries, and I guess that`s only expected.

    Note that Russia had fewer 12 points than Armenia, so Russia actually won from secondary votes from more countries.

    Regardless if the western european countries pull out, I`ll still be loyally watching. Eurovision music is my type of music. Except for that !*&^*(&$^2)(*5(*#%^(*#%^*(# latvian entry, for which Ireland gave douze points for. drat you Latvian immigrants!

    You know, we in Ireland had Dustin the Talking Turkey this year because we`ve won eurovision more times than ANY other country, (7 times), and now we just dont give a crap anymore.
    We`re just taking the piss out of it.

    We could win if we wanted to.
    Just send in U2 or Westlife.

    Though with political voting, it won`t really matter.

    Ha, no Americans posting yet. It`s such a weird European thing. The music is terrible, it is unbelievably long and boring, the votes are so predictable and yet half of Europe watches it. I love things that strangely unite Europe every now and again (hate Eurovision in itself).

    I only watched the ending with the points. Thank you Ireland, we may have bombed each other for decades but you were there when we really needed you...and San Marino too....mwah. :D

    I`m also really quite convinced (would be nice if someone can burst my bubble) that since I started watching Eurovision 4 years ago, all the winners have been deserving, and they won not because of block votes but their quality and catchiness anyway (not that block votes don`t count, just that in the bigger picture they`re not a big deal).

    Oh, and Sweden is so overrated. She didn`t make a `wow` performance, and I`m surprised so many people were betting for her to win.

    Another performance which I personally liked was the Turkish one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=riMSxOc7Z...

    kikij, you`re right, in fact, Americans should be making a sweeping blanket statement about Europe on how we voted for someone with broken English to win.

    On a side note, Dima Bilan`s (Winner -Russia) album was also co-produced by Timbaland, in an attempt to bring him over the Atlantic. I`m guessing no.

    Apologies if I`m too overexcited. It`s just that I adore learning about different cultures and customs of the different countries of the world + I`m thinking about going to college in international relations, so this is a topic very close to my heart, and I`m damned passionate about it.

    Some people learn about the world around them by having an interest in the World Cup for example, or or the Olympics, or the politics, or in many other hundred ways. I explore by their music and language, and Eurovision helps me by putting 43 of them in one night for me to indulge.

    Sorry, adrenaline pumping, blood rushing to my brain... can`t... breathe...

    Israel are allowed to enter because they`re part of the European Broadcasting something-or-other. I can`t be bothered looking it up. You`re allowed to enter if you`re part of this. "How did they get to be part of a European Broadcasting thing?" should be the original question.
    Dustin the Turkey should have been in. And the pirates should have won.

    BrokenJohn, I think a few countries (Israel being one of them) pay for/sponser the Eurovision, and therefore are automatically entered - not sure though.

    Silly-cake, incorrect. The major sponsors are UK, France, Germany and Spain, and these countries (along with the host) get automatic entry into the final. This came about when one of them failed to enter the finals and got relegated, and it pissed them off.

    Magic-Number is correct. Israel is part of the EBU (organizers of the event) and thus can participate. Other non-EU members also participating include Turkey (ha!), Morrocco (once), Jordan, Tunisia, among others.

    Some people can talk football for hours on end and discuss statistics and best goals and junk.

    I talk Eurovision. Or really, world culture in general.

    psychic!

    I really think that the UK should carry on taking part out of our traditional sheer bloody mindedness, but that we shouldnt fund it to the extent that we do. I believe it`s TV license money that goes towards it and I`m personally not happy with paying for something we have no chance of winning, while those that give very little spoil the party.

    2. The performance was soo cheap.. some gay iceprincess.


    Turkey was the best imo. But i`m happy they didn`t win because they were too good for the eurovision. So I thought Greece/Spain would win. and I liked the french too it was relaxing music ;D

    domisgood + GeorgieRose - they are apart from Israel. Turkey is probably going to be in the EU as well. Part of Turkey has ALWAYS been in Europe - it`s like Russia (part Asian/part European).

    Look on the map - they are recent additions to Europe but European all the same. http://www.worldatlas.com/webimage/count...
    They are quite clearly in Europe. Israel is not.

    opiebreath, Not neccesarily from their culture. Since the voters are people from other countries (you can`t vote for your own country), they usually go for either:

    a) Pure ballads,
    b) Europop music (a.k.a. club dance, etc),
    c) Huge huge gimmicks,
    d) lame cheap-ass cheesy songs, like the pirate.

    "Best" doesn`t really fit.

    American Idol on steroids, ecstasy, pot, coke and other paraphernalia all at the same time.

    Probably right Pabasa. I never watch the big ball of cheese known as Eurovison anymore as I`ve known for years it was political. It`s not the best song anymore, its which contry has the most friends, though Lordi earned their win.

    Any American who dosnt know what Eurovison is it`s like an international "American Idol" I suppose.
    ABBA being one of the most recognisable names to come out of it I suppose.

    Like I said..it`s been cheese for years!

    What exactly are you Brits whining about, really? Your entry was completely crap, no wonder you didn`t get any votes. Norway and Greece did rather well, and claiming they`re Eastern European is far fetched.

    The Turkish entry was the best IMHO:

    The funny thing is that it`s the first time (after two times) I didn`t watch the contest and my country won (for the very first time). And I don`t even give a damn (never have). If you wanna know, that singer is really crappy, only stupid teenage girls love him here in Russia; I would be more glad if someone else among our stars happened to be so lucky.

    "What exactly are you Brits whining about, really? Your entry was completely crap, no wonder you didn`t get any votes. Norway and Greece did rather well, and claiming they`re Eastern European is far fetched."

    nobody said Norway and Greece were in eastern Europe. they were just talking about political voting.God,no need to get your knickers in a twist.

    Since every other European has posted so far... Russia should be booted off Eurovision. 1) Most of the country is in Asia anyway 2) Cowardly ex-soviet countries always vote for their leader.

    Block voting is getting out of control, but Ireland always give The UK 8, 10 or 12 points and vice versa!!
