Luckily I was not at home. For years now, I don't watch it anymore. The songs are so bad.
I remember, 20 years ago, that everybody stayed at home to watch this contest. Now, everybody is leaving there house in some sort of speak just to avoid this terrible show.
Belgium always have to try first to get trough the semi-finals. I must say that sometimes the song is not that bad, and yet we cannot pass.
But that is the result of the voting by the people. Like Clare said, it is all about politics.
Anyway, it is over.

Nah, it's good for a laugh even though it's so bad. However little a chance we've got of winning, the contestants will tell you it's the taking part that counts - the humiliation is an added bonus!!

I'm not sure I agree it's not even funny anymore its just bad and as for humilation, its not just the singers its about humilating the country as a whole.

I blame the morons who actually voted for that song to represent our country. It's members of this country who voted and they're the first ones to complain we only got 19 points, it's rediculous!

I think it a good competition for foregin realtions, they have to stop letting the British public picking such shite songs, the onces the put up for the voting are bad enough, they should let us choose who should write and sing the song from the beginning!

Would it really matter who represented the U.K if the method of voting used by continental Europeans remained the same. I mean, will the Scandinavian countries stop the yearly cycle of voting for each other irrelevant of song quality? The same with the newly formed independent countries.

That said, it doesn't change the total mince called Scooch.

Hahaha, when I read these reactions to this topic, I notice that you people from the UK think just the same as we do in Belgium.
The majority of the people think we have to stop participating, because we make a fool of ourselves in the contest.
I say that everybody in the contest is making a fool of him/her self, but apparantly that is what the audience wants. Everybody is looking to the show! So the producers probably love a sily song just to have more viewers.
A viewer is a viewer to them. It is all about money.

Eurovision 2008 is May 24th I believe, anyone planning on enjoying the naffest collection of songs on one evening? Another year of the Eastern Bloc and Scandinavian countries voting for each other.

I saw old Terry promoting it on Paul O'Grady and he looked exasperated at what we've got to look forward to, I think the French entry looks particularly obscure.

At least the UK entry was joint last and didn't have the dishonourable distinction of claiming it for ourselves. I'm tending now to lean towards the idea of either withdrawing from all future contests or calling the whole Eurovision thing quits.

Eurovision 2009 occurs in Moscow on Saturday May 16th, do we know if Terry Wogan will be true to his word that he's chucking his presenting duties? Since this competition started in 1956 in Switzerland there's been numerous outstanding winners like Abba (1974) but now, it's absolute pants.

The last time I watched Eurovision, I wanted to throw large objects at the TV, so now I tend to just give it a miss. It's not worth the hike in blood pressure!!

The 2010 competition is hosted by Oslo on Saturday 29th May, I fully expect the drastic standards of recent history to continue - and who would have it any other way?
