Eurovision 2019



  • Mostly boring songs in this years competition, with a couple of exceptions

    Australia Eurovision team:
    Give me ideas what sort of theme we should go for:

    • Disney princess
    • Mad Max
    • The Fifth Element

    F*ck it, lets do them all

    Iceland
    Screw trying to win, we are going full on metal with a bondage themed performance

    Cyprus
    OK, lets put on a second rate Madonna impersonator dressed in flimsy bits of plastic, and don't feed her for a month before the performance (wait till she strips half way through)



  • Thought Norway, Sweden and Switzerland were the best songs. A bit surprised that Netherlands and Italy went 1/2, I wasn't particularly inspired by either.

    I had Norway in my top 3 as well. Apparently they may have been screwed on the professional judges votes a bit - the judges see a separate performance, and during that the video screen died affecting their performance. They asked to be able to take it again, and were told no.

    I've listened to the screechy Poland song a couple more times since they lost in their semi - it is growing on me



  • My Top 5 were

    Australia, Azerbaijan, Estonia, Norway, Switzerland

    with Azerbaijan winning it

    #NotEvenClose

    Yeah Netherlands didn't live up to the hype. Very ordinary.

    Why on earth is Aus still there btw? Stupid.

    Er yes. Israel at least has a Mediterranean coast and the Arabs won't let them in anywhere anyway. Australia is slightly further to the east. Like farking the other side of the planet.

    True it pretty much is Europe, whereas Australia has never had anything to do with it, does Australia even have any ties to Britain or Italian/Greek immigrants?

    Well shît, then why not include New Zealand. The US and Canada too. And South Africa. India was a British colony, chuck them in as well. Yes, Israel being part of Eurovision is stupid, but including Australia is utterly farking retarded.

    Australia should too apparently because they have migrants who like soccer.

    Should they? You've changed your tune.

    That sounds pretty dumb to me. Although they should definitely include Lebanon, Morocco etc. Because, med.



  • @Rancid-Schnitzel Europe has always stretched further east than Australia 🙄

    That's just silly. It makes more sense if they include a country 14,000km away because migrants.

    Sounds a bit like Australia. Those buggers go nuts for stuff like that, it was all over the TV when I was there and has been for thirty years or something so they got invited to join for some anniversary thing and of course never left. Typical.



  • Guys, let's take a deep breath. You are arguing over... Eurovision.

    It's supposed to be stupid. It always has been, and always will be. Australia being in there makes no sense, and that's why it's so perfect.

    Just go with it.

    Arguing!? I'll show you arguing!

    Agreed.

    Tbh it's not very big here. But, like in Europe, it's huge among the people Foulhow says will go hell and I don't mean the fornicators and alcoholics.



  • @Rancid-Schnitzel geez I'd hate to see what is big then, that and Archie have absolutely dominated morning television. More so than in Britain I reckon.
