I’m getting in first before the AW server is overwhelmed by this year’s Eurovision chat. This clip whistles through all the entries – a few seconds each – which is all you need really for most of them.
Based on watching that, I want Iceland or Australia to win but Norway look like a strong contender. Laughs can be had from TV’s San Marino and apparently Madonna is performing her latest single during the interval. She’ll be hoping it’s a big hit like “Holiday!” or “Into the Groove”.
The UK entry is another weak effort. The tune is OK in a Backstreet Boys ballad-type way, but this was an opportunity to have a unifying lyric aboutt climate change. The Eurovison panels would bloody love that. The song is good enough to win but the lyrics and the stage performance are not. .
Anyway – I enjoy watching the show each year and I hope you do too.
