    It is that time of the year...

    If you don't get TV coverage (eg., semifinals, the first one was yesterday), you can watch at http://eurovision.tv

    I really can't see the point. It used to be crap, but funny. Now, people are pretending to take it seriously...but it's still crap. So it's not even funny anymore.

    I have it on the big screen as background at the moment. Not a fan and don't bother with it usually, but I am quite intrigued that this year some of the countries actually have songs from this decade.

    30 million quid it cost this year, apparently.

    Just heard the UK entry on the News.

    She sounded bloody dreadful.

    We were at a wedding do, so unfortunately couldn't watch. We did however get to listen to the scoring in the car on the way home, but Norway had more or less won it by that point.

    So, not a vintage Eurovision year for the Jaffas...

    I was in London with some fellow MR people, including a Norwegian. So he should be happy!

    Missed the singing but went round to a friend's in time for the results.

    MUCH more fun when the UK gets points from more than 2 countries, and you can get all angry when we're bumped down from 2nd etc. Thought Graham Norton was great :)

    Only just heard the UK song today though and it's bloody awful.

    Graham Norton made it as watchable, but wasn't as sarcastic as terry wogan. Thought it got better as it went on. The burlesque dancer one was absolutely awful though
