With the Eurovision song contest being hosted in Helsinki (12/05/07), do you love it or hate it?

It is an institution that cannot be taken seriously, the political undertones when the voting takes place is a joke.

Hmm, mixed, Wogan's comments are funny he should be aired to all the countries, what he gets away with! But some or the music can be pretty dire, and they're talking of Casualty for it

You're 100% right about the dreadful quality of the performers/songs, it's probably fortunate that language barriers prevent us from understanding the songs. I just love predicting what countries will proclaim "nil points" to a competing country. Tel rambles can also be as entertaining.

I do miss Casualty when there's a episode break but that's BBC scheduling I suppose.

From what I've seen of it I hate it, even more so now it's on instead of Casualty.

If you had a choice, which Casualty character/actor(s) would participate in Eurovision?

I'm with Shelli, I think Terry is brilliant on it. I remember years ago Michael Ball was asked if he would ever do the Eurovision again, he replied that he would rather stick pins in his eyes. :lol:

I think the majority of the music on it's awful and cheesey.. but I love the fact that some of the songs are so bad that they're good

Just watching the performance from Finland, and it was really good! They did a rock song, like last year! Soon the UK might learn that the world doesn't wanna hear cheesey rubbish any more, and they want ROCK! hehe!

Sarcastic commentary is funny though

But Eurovision is all about cheesy rubbish, if it was real quality music it wouldn't be on Eurovision!

Eurovision 2007 can't be described as a joke because Jokes are generally funny. This is a complete farce, did you see the German dude? What was that he was wearing?

And what about that Finnish 'barbie doll' in the green room with the contestants? With England's Scooch - and here was me thinking it was the UK!

Come on, somebody ANYBODY give the UK a point. Please.
