Bonnie Tyler representing the UK in Eurovision

Postby Vampire » Thu Mar 07, 2013 11:33 am

Following Macca's diabolical performance at the Olympics, there seems to be a minimum age of 60 to sing for the UK on the world stage.

Any thoughts?

Oh dear God!!!

I used to love this show but only for Sir Terry Wogan's piss-taking commentary!

Vanilla innit, Just seen a Siouxie Sioux concert on Sky Arts, now she'd do a cracking job, and she's still got it, but alas is only a youngster at 55.

Thoughts? The eurovision is utter garbage and no self resepcting artist would be interested in doing it unless it was to get themselves back in the public eye for a bit. Justin Hawkins had a go the other year, seemed to be taking it seriously, but we voted to send some other tripe instead - sums up our level of interest.

Why is it of interest down under?

Just seen a current photo of her online, with the antipathic voting towards the UK and her current looks....we're fucked, again! :burnley:

Well. I'm slightly curious as to why you're reading and asking about this when I've not noticed it in the UK press meself. Slow news day down under?

I'd only find this entertaining if we put some sort of complete dubstep or grime filth out there, just for the purposes of annoying our continental neighbours to the utmost extent possible.

Does this mean the UK press are censoring embarrassing news?

Out of interest, how was she selected? Did you all get to vote on it and was the minimum voting age 60?

Nope, it means the UK press aren't covering things which don't constitute news. Given the shit they do publish, this gives you a guide to the approximate number of fucks given in this instance.

Except in Australia, apparently.

We get Bonnie Tyler to do ours, which will no doubt be the usual shite.

Meanwhile, Armenia rope in Tommy Iommi to write theirs for them. I bet it's a thousand times better than ours!

this sparked a brief office discussion about people's favourite ever power ballad.

i couldn't decide whether Sweet Child o' Mine was a PB or not - maybe a bit too fast in places?

What what what?

This is what I've never got about Eurovision, it's as if it exists outside of the music industry. Why don't they get, you know, good songwriters and stuff?
