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.
I claim plagiarism!
Decide for yourself!
The Turkish entry was the best IMHO:
I hated the UK one though...so I`m not bothered that we lost miserably.I would have preferred Finland or Turkey to win. Or even B&H :DORR Azerbaijan, simply for the inhuman noise the long haired geezer makes that sounds like a car stalling.
Plus there were some fun groups out there who didn`t win and the bland boring ones did.
missa miehet ratsastaaaaa
I thought Finland and Turkey were good, as were Estonia.
I was hoping Latvia would take it. :P
That or Ireland, cuz it looked like a bad acid trip. lol
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!
Though, really, Serbia did well last year.
Or have I just lost a year???
Or maybe I`m just biased.
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.
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.
but you`ve got me a couple of hundred miles away.
pirates pwnd these n00bs =D
*cough* mmkay, no more geekness for me...
^ bit lame?
and the baltics vote for russia fro the same reason
I can`t think of a witty description. Someone wwith better sense of humour help me describe Eurovision to the rest of the world.
i used to watch it when i was younger but now it is just so lame and pathetic
anyways, isn`t that blond guy the one from skating at the rythm of sex bomb?
Mind, you need to download the Octoshape plug-in. If you`re not interested, everything is on youtube already.
I have a weakness for thick eyebrows (not bushy, mind). Maybe coz I lack them.
My other fetishes include... oh, you`re not interested. Nvm.
Karaokeing to it feels good.
The lame ones are sure to be entertaining. Keep an eye on Bosnia & Herzegovina, Spain, Latvia and of course Azerbaijan for the truly cheesy ones.
Heck, here`s links to them:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d8wjcMus_... - Azerbaijan
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0r567UNGE... - B&H
Latvia was here on IAB.
And here`s the wiki with scorecards:
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
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.
Gz, you`re pathetic.
Anyhoww, this year wasn`t so good, but whatever, that`s my opinion...
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.
Our entry,Dustin The Turkey.
She declines it, but it sure looks like 5 liters of botox.
bosnia&herzogivhina were amazing
who rmembers france from last yr...i loved that 1
I was rooting for France and Spain :D
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...
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.
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...
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
We could win if we wanted to.Just send in U2 or Westlife.
Though with political voting, it won`t really matter.
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!
Mussolini would be proud.
i was mostly thinking finntroll, turisas, wintersun. but hey, HIM isn`t that bad.
my friend, i love finnish rock, but their song was with all due respect, meh. =)
anyways Armenia should have won cos she was FIT
comming from sweden myself i fully and totaly agree with you. i am utterly ashamed of the content put out by us.
I had high hopes that turkey would win. i liked their song.
Pricks actually think they have a chance to win with their sh*tty music.
