  • Eurovision is fun to watch.

    Eurovision it's weird,wacky and look there's someone dressed up as Kiss that's just part of the charm of Eurovision and also the fact that some acts are well lets just say strange.

    This beats Australia Idol (and the ones from other countries except Polish Idol now that was pretty strange but it was funny).Also it brings Europe together with the competition getting held a different each year and really it's just one big party and celebration of song and dance in Europe.

    I'm a fan of Eurovison now from watching it I think 2 years ago and I hope my review gives you the urge to watch it next year or even enter just remember to thank me if you win.moreless
  • A great night of diverse music, friendly competition and European solidrity!

    Eurovision is a great event, call me lame but the gathering of nations for something other than football and for something thats more of a laugh is a worthwhile event. Eurovision has a bit of a naff reputation, but this is largly because the British mainly because were monolingual have little tolerance for foriegn music. If your in the know or have broader taste however you'll be aware that with every passing year the quailty of songs is improving vastly any many countries use thier top musicians. In the last few years I've genuinly enjoyed many songs and still listen to some.

    Eurovision however is just as fun for the bad songs and the live mistakes and the guilty pleasure of laughing at whoever gets 'nil point'! My god did us Brits take it badly! We however diserve everything we get because we simply do not try.

    I've always made an event of eurovision along with myfirends so this show will always have a special place in my heart no matter who wants to knock itmoreless
  • Honestly, this is the best song contest in the world.

    I only started watching the Eurovision Song Contest about three years ago... and what was i missing out on! This show has grown on me so much.

    There are amazing performances and amazing songs. The hosts are great and the whole show is put together wonderfully. It is bringing Europe closer together. However, I really don't think there is a need for a commentator. Thank god Terry Wogan has quit. He was the most annoying personality on TV. This years (2008) Eurovision Song Contest was held in Belgrade, Serbia. The only reason it was held there was because the worlds best singer, Marija Serifovic, won the song contest in 2007 with her song Molitva. I was obsessed with Molitva for over a year and Marija has become my favourite celebrity. I must congratulate her on the song as it blew me away. I have all her CD's and hope to meet her one day.

    I'm definitelly looking forward to next years Eurovision which will be held in Moscow, Russia.moreless
  • I love it but also hate it!

    This show is a guilty pleasure thats also very annoying!! For the first hour and a half this show rocks! But when the voting begins it gets very annoying and very political i'm from the UK and I don't blame people for not voting for us, I mean why should they? Even if we come last ( which we always do) we are still in the show every year as we put to much money into it!! But the voting is still extremly political and hardly ever based on how good the song is! I think we need to go back to the old system of voting where judges pick a winner based on the song or tweak it a bit and have the judges pick 3-5 songs then people vote for the best one out of them!!moreless
  • I have to watch this every year... I'm an ESC geek and I'm proud of it!!!

    OK so it is the 53rd year this thing is going on! And there are more countries than ever who has submitted a song, so for the first time we have two semi finales before the big finale. But the thing that is a bit disturbing is that Great Britain, Spain, Germany and France has a permanent spot in the finale, it's because they give so much money to the competition, but I think it's wrong. I live in Sweden and we take this thing really serious, we have a 6 part competition to choose the song we wanna send to the big ESC, and it's a big thing, over a third of the population watch our domestic finale! I think it's kind of weird how people can send so stupid songs to this competition, I like the eastern European countries because they take it seriously!!

    Hopefully Estonia, and Ireland will send something less sucky next year!!

    Tonight is the second semi finale and I'm counting the minutes to 21:00 when it begins!!moreless
