Eh, no Eurovision song can ever compete with "My Lovely Horse."

Hey, Russia,

Next time you complain you got robbed in an international competition, just remember the 1972 Olympics. Specifically, the men's basketball gold medal game.

Until you give the U.S. team the gold medal they deserve, sit down and STFU.

Maybe the Azerbaijanis were just too sleepy after having to listen to that bland paean to bland blandness to vote for it - or their bodies revoted against picking it from the sheer horror that someone would create and perform a song that makes Manilow look edgy and deep.  I mean, Romania's was pure pablum, but at least it had Leather-Daddy Castrati Dracula to provide entertainment value

There's another scandal brewing. Not that I care about any of the shiat that seems to always win.

Azerbaijan's foreign minister, Elmar Mammadyarov, said the country's mobile phone operators reported that Russia's Dina Garipova came second in the local vote, which would have given her 10 points.

Comrade!  Your phone records do not indicate you voted for Dina Garipova!  Please wait outside of your flat for the police to arrive.

If their entry didn't have a certain Rebecka Black vapidness.

Oh god, the winner was worse.

I keep forgetting this is a vapid songwriter contest.

Yeah, "shiat simply became genuine" doesn't make all that much sense. Also somewhat lacks in subject/verb agreement.

The only time I regretted not watching Eurovision, was when those guys won :

Otherwise, this is just a contest for the most boring song, and is nothing but politics.

I'm sure the Russkies are happy their entry won't be the theme for Brokeback II Son of the Mountain like this most wonderful Eurovision winner of 1973.

He's not the only one that feels that way.  I think the players have it in their wills to never EVER let any of their descendants EVER accept the silver medal after their death. Even the refs refused to sign the scorecards, they were so embarrassed.

That's part of why I love Eurovision so much. After the terrible songs, the ridiculous costumes and staging and seeing if my usual prediction that we'll come away yet again with a deserved nul points come the usual excuses and complaints about bloc voting, politically motivated voting and migrants voting for the homeland.

All of which are, of course, true. Which is why the only other country I care about in the contest is Ireland. Unless they send Jedward or Dustin the Turkey again, of course.

Hey FrancoFile, WTF are you talking about?


/pedantic mode on, sarcastic mode off

Sociological analyses of competitions (world cup, rugby, eurovision) usually have some wishful-thinking line about how nationalistic tensions can be sublimated in 'harmless' activities like these, instead of war.

However, it seems that it's working in reverse. These competitions focus and encourage nationalistic tensions - witness all the race-baiting and rioting around soccer matches (club, Eurocup, Word Cup) and the endless punditry talking about this silly and pointless music event.

The various European national identities are all rooted in "we're not like those people" emotions, and you should stop pretending that they aren't.  Witness the failure of the EU to acquire any kind of grassroots support.

/pedantic mode off, sarcastic mode on

So just skip the middleman, and have a small war every once in a while to get rid of the overly-aggressive people with nothing better to do than hate on each other.

We came last. Even the farking Brits, who we can normally depend on for a sympathy 'douze points' only gave us a single, yes one, point.

Between that and the famine, they're a shower of bastards.

So basically you want Europe to have small wars, because there are no wars anymore, which might lead to big wars?
