Eurovision

May 12th, 2007 (08:20 pm)

Ah, Eurovision... never, ever change.

You just don't get this level of entertainment anywhere else. As Terry Wogan said, you just don't get two men walking across the snow in furcoats, underpants and an accordian before throwing themselves into a hot spring.

So far, I rather liked Belarus.

The Finish singer looks like she wants to rip out the spines of any man near her. Leave Me Alone indeed.

Oh god... the girl in the pink dress basically demanding to know where the camera is and wanting to present. Wogan : "What a delightful spontantanous moment." You could practically hear his eyes rolling.

Slovenia's corset is.... interesting. I suspect my goth friend will regret missing it. :P

Hungry appears to have gone the other extreme from Slovenia. Both song-wise and most definitely costume-wise - literally looking like they've just got off the bus.

These really are very odd representations of Finland - bog football and computer shows?!?!

Greece is very kitch - and exactly what you think Eurovision is all about. Wogan on the dancers: "Plenty of thrusting."

Sweden has gone back to the 70's. Imagine a cross between T Rex and Abba.

The commercial break with Cisse!!!! Oh my god... kill her now.

One of the French singers has a cat stapled to his shoulder. Wogan : "Gosh, wasn't that awful?"

Attempted live blogging abandoned, and left to passing snarky comments back and forth with curiouswombat in the comments.

DW Don't Look Back (DW 2x03)

We did finally get a trailer for next week's ep just before it.

Looks good.

I liked the Finnish lass - and she can compete with the Slovene in a kind of corset-wars if the Slovenian girl wears the same costume as she did in the qualifiers.

The girl from FYROM is wearing the same thing she did in the semis - reminds me of the things we wore for gym, only with a lower neck-line and jewels....

Head-desky [lurker32]

Twinky pinky must die.

And Sweden did look a lot like Iggy Pop and Marilyn Manson unholy love-child.

Why is France running while singing? Is it that bad a song?

Yay

I think in Bulgaria we have the outright winner of corset-wars!

And you can just have the guy taken round the back to my tent.....

Also I like the song!

dawn - yes

It definitely grew on me.

So, um... if you happen to be splitting them up, any chance I can have the singer?

And there is something wrong in the world when Britain is exporting its Turkish dancers to Turkey....

What did I miss

Ah - this is the girl of whose costume I commented - I think it stayed in place by being stitched there with her pubic hair.


I hardly noticed the song....

Booster Stylish [wildecate]

Overall, I should be voting for Belarus, Slovania, Greece, Sweden, France, Ukraine and Bulgaria.

Purely on entertainment value for some of them.

Tampere

you just don't get two men walking across the snow in furcoats, underpants and an accordian before throwing themselves into a hot spring.

Hi! *Waves*

I ended up here from a random link on my f-list and just had to drop by to defend the Finnish honour and to correct you - and Terry Wogan - that it wasn't a hot spring, it was a frozen lake ;)

And the girl in a pink dress is a popular stand-up comedian whose character is pretty much the Finnish Ali G.

Bwah-ha-ha-ha!

Ahhhh... thanks for the info on Pinkie. I kinda suspected something like that - she was too over-the-top if you know what I mean. No-one could be that annoying and on tv that much without faking it.

Policitians excluded, naturally. *grin*
