We should. Pre-Brexit we didn't have a chance in hell because everyone hates us, post-Brexit all the other contestants could be blown up by terrorists and we still couldn't win.

Yep, nothing to do with the fact your entries are such crap.

Do you rate Phil Collins better than Sting, or do you like them both the same?

Wife and kids are watching this, as is the tradition in Sweden, 1 hour in and they've reached song 12 of 26. 2.5+ hours to.go. Fuck me. It's dire. Early night for me I think. ......

Australian hooligan showing his arse on live TV. Vamps, I hope this is not going to happen every year or your lot will be out.

Yeah, shame he wasn't one of ours as he livened up a pretty drab show this year.

Seems you've got to have a right on/sympathy back story to win these days. You poms will win by a landslide next year if you can persuade Dale to sing for you.

The winning song actually is quite a good piece of song-writing and the singing kind of reminded me a bit of one of those Joabim classics like Desafinado in that I can see it being turned into a jazzy/bossa nova thing sung slightly off key. Not too sure about the singing- probably needed to hear the song without seeing the singer .

Hey. Brett. Have you ever thought about the fact that your favourite singer Phil Collins wrote so many songs but his only number one was a remake of a Motown song. You can't hurry love....Still, as long as you like him, that's the main thing.

So true. Makes me think what Brett sees in the useless cunt.

He just loves mind-numbing pop, the daft twat.

Even as a relentlessly piss taking cunt, you've totally lost me with all that.

Well, Brett. The clock is ticking towards the greatest show on earth and you've not said a word about it.

Maybe the fact that you know we have the trophy safely in our hands this time is keeping you quiet.

Maybe he's just stopped rollerblading and sucking dicks, so no longer has an interest?
You know, I'm sick of following my dreams, man. I'm just going to ask where they're going and hook up with 'em later.

She doesn’t sound Welsh, Rhys. Guess that means she could come from Cardiff.

To be fair that's not the worst Eurovision song I've ever heard.Obviously derivative and a bit of Annie Lennox in there or whatever but reckon it might be in with a chance . :oops: What's the betting say ?

Edit : just seen you can get 40/1 . How is Estonia the bloody favourite again ??????? Bloody politics innit ?

Re-edit : you can get 110/1 on Betfair :cry:

What are your chances this year, B.

I've been chatting to SuRie on facebook and she's quietly confident of winning it :salute:

That's awful. It's like they've gone back to the boom bang a bang days, when all you need in your toolbox is some syrupy repetitive shite that mentions kids, dreams etc
