yeah potentially... that would be cool!

I understand they've been invited to the 60th anniversary because of the huge ESC fan culture in Oz but not having them from here on out would be kind of a dick move imo.

Guilty conscience, or guilty pleasure?

The UK entry sounded like a 1970s euro/novelty pop rip-off...

This was an exceptionally boring line-up – so much forgettable drivel. where were the goofy costumes/all-out camp/ironic acts?? I wonder if that's why the awesome finnish down-syndrome band didn't pass the jury in the newly installed semifinals – too much edge.

It also turns out Australia's appeareance was a one-off. Lighten up a little ESC! Well maybe if they win the next contest would have to be in Oz right? Australia definitely had the most convincing act.

Lol - blocked in Germany yet again.


And man do I hate the German commentary. He's always talking, talking, talking, talking - and a lot of crap as well. Instead of letting the pictures speak for themselves.

Really pissed me off in recent years.



But I like the new idea of the ESC - they uploaded all videos to YouTube this year around. So if there won't be a DVD/BluRay (which they are really bad at), you can at least see all entries again.


EDIT:
Germany tries the "Spy Theme" route this year? Well, at least it's not such a bad entry like in recent years...
