Tonight will see the UK choose it's artist to perform at this year's Eurovision in Kiev.
Eurovision is infamous due to the fact that the UK doesnt take it seriously anymore yet the rest of Europe does, especially the Germans  Wink
Terry Wogan with his brilliant commentary is an aspect to Eurovision loved by many in the UK  Wink

So who is the contestants from your country?  Wink
Will it be Jordan from the UK perhaps?  Wink

I reckon we should go for nil points again. That was the funniest thing I've seen in years.  Silly

Trouble is, those buggers allow professional songwriters to enter the competition, we don't. Gives us a bit of a head start in the nil point stakes, really.

Though it does show how our amateurs are as good as their professionals.  Wink

Well, Javine is representing the UK this year, lets hope she gets some points. Did you see the look on Jordan's face when Javine went to shake her hand? If looks could kill, lol. She is a sore loser but she couldn't sing anyway.

Edit: Javine just fell out of her dress, LMAO!!!

Jordan has had more air time since she came out that plastic jungle. Everytime I turn on my telly looking for Panorama or something sensible, I see her crooning or a 2 hour documentary on her and that orange Peter who she poses with in my mums OK book

I'm very sad for watching the Eurovision program in the first place, but I must admit I'm disappointed Jordan didn't win! I see Eurovision as a bit of fun which should be taken light heartedly. It's not as if each country enters their prime musical talent.

Jordan is cheap, talentless, attention-grabbing, tacky, common, plastic and her performance features stripping backing singers. Surely there isn't a more suitable Eurovision entry - it would have either won or scored 0. Javine may have an ok voice and wear dresses she can't contain her breasts in, but she doesn't have the voice (think Tricolore) or wow-factor (a la Jordan) to win.

In that case, we may have a chance. Hey, it worked with Bucks Fizz.  Wink

God, I've just realised that was 24 years ago. How old do I feel?

lol, Gkirk, the person who started the thread is a person who isn't interested in the competition. So why did you start it?

Did you see how "serious" we Germans take the contest? Have you seen the people who wrote the songs?
We have an old guy, Ralf Siegel, who writes songs which are very popular but everybody denies to like the songs (but they get elected).
On the other hand we have Stephan Raab, and when you have seen his shows, you really can't say we "take it seriously".

Also we only won once (grrrrr)

Shamrock747,

You are not alone, I was well disappointed when Katie Price didn't win. She is so Eurovision. Camp, trashy and the song was quite boppy. Oh Well maybe Javine will accidently let her tits fall out (just like last night!!) and we will get some points for that.

Long live Katie.........

Oz

Ps I did feel a bit sad for old Gina G, afterall she was fantastic way back when.. Ooh Ahh just a little bit, Ooh Ahh..... dammit need to stop singing now.....

Camp, trashy, and would be eight months pregnant by the time of the contest. It'd look like weekdays at Lakeside Shopping Mall.  wideeyed

No, no, no! It's not that we don't care about it, we thoroughly enjoy it. It's just that we don't care about winning it, an entirely different thing.  Wink

Banco,

You are totally right. She would definately look like lakeside on a saturday afternoon, but still an opportunity missed....

To NoUFO - we DO love Eurovision, but couldn't care less who wins it. When Gemini got Nil points - The whole country thought it was funny......

Ah, he misses the whole point! Long may it continue!  Wink

The reason you don't like it is because you see it as a competition, there for the winning.

We see it as a pathetically appalling, high camp, dog's breakfast of an event, where we can piss ourselves laughing at the daft Europeans desperately trying to win this piece of crap.

No Banco the Wanko Wink, I don't see it as a competition, I couldn't care less who wins and I understand you actually watch it (oh shock, oh awe, oh horror) to feel entertained.
You, for whatever reason - call it humour or bad taste - feel good watching it. But this implies that you can stand spending hours watching this crap. Congratulations. I can't. Even with the sound on mute. The pictures are bad enough. They really are.
(But this, however, should not lead to the completely arbitrary - and more so: wrong - assumption you isolated islander're superior to us reunited German tribes. Beware.)

I believe that if Javine (? Ja who? Yahoo? Big grin ) wins the prize but rejects it in disgust.
