don't like watching the eurovision song contest anymore......its so political !! Its not a fair contest where the songs are juged for how good they are...but more from where they come from ...and its a waste of time...all songs always talk bout the same crap

This is my argument.....As you know many countries have this system where people can vote by phone and others have juries....nevertheless these juries are made up of people from the voting country so the biase is still as strong

E.G As you have seen, when Sweden gives the results of their jury or of people's votes it goes
8 points go to Finland
9 points go to Iceland
10 points go to Denmark
and the 12 points go to.......Norway !!!!!!

same for the Ex Yougoslav countries or Cyprus always ginving 12 points to Greece even on times where the greek song sucked ! And if you haven't noticed, Austria always gives its 12 points to Germany or the UK (that i wonder why )

Thus countries like Switzerland end up having 0 points since they are not members of the E.U and thus isolated. Nevertheless their songs are far better than many.

1 )Does anyone have any suggestion as to how we can make the votes more Fair?

2 ) Don't many of you hate watching the eurovision for this reason as well

Euro... what?

I won't be watching "Gracia" embarrassing my country, thank you. This contest is so screwed up, the last time I had a good time watching it was when the Olsen Brothers from Denmark won!

Might be true but I think it most of the time is because we like the songs, the exchange of 12 points between Greece and Cyprus is far worse.
Well, this time I do hope we give high points to Iceland, not because they're our "neighbors" but because she's HOT  hearts  (and the song is pretty good too).

Gosh, you never noticed until recently?
It's been that way for at least the last 30 years.

The only thing that changed is the quality of the performances, that's gone through the floor and been washed out to sea.

And finally, we know why the Northern Sea is in that kind of trouble...  Wink
