    Well, it's normally a nightmare. Abba were the best.

    I still have faith in you.

    Didn't you even notice that we won the international juries' vote at this year's Eurovision and only came second overall instead of first because of Putin's invasion of Ukraine (let's face it, the Ukrainian group could have come on stage, dropped their pants and farted for 4 minutes and still won this year).
    The UK has entered absolute dross for too many years.
    When we enter a decent song we can win - as 2022 shows us!
    Exactly, I remember a pre-Sugababes Jade Ewen did well when singing an Andrew Lloyd-Webber song since 2003, so it's a case of making an effort & being rewarded for it. No conspiracies required!

The Germans have historically been lovely, and the Spanish conquistadors were so nice, to name but a few. I can only assume it's masochism on behalf of the British, who love getting spanked.

    UK winning the international music juries' vote and Ukraine winning the most massive public phone-in vote ever, in an amazing show of international solidarity against Russia's brutal aggression.
    I reckon next year's EVSC will have to be held in the UK, as I cannot see the effects of the war on Ukraine's infrastructure having been rectified in under a year's time.
    It might work out like that, as usually if a winner can't host it a British one is a stand in.

    The big family Eurovision BBQ is being hosted this year by my daughter-in-law's parents, so I can just turn up, scoff at the performances, sigh dramatically at the politicised voting and get sozzled!
    Can't wait!

    I liked the songs of Finland, Israel, Greece, Italy, France and Ukraine the most. The song from France is very reminiscent of the songs of Edith Piaf, a classic French chanson.

    I was wondering which country's authorities would have dealt with the winner's drug situation - would it be the Italian (because he's from Italy), Dutch (because of where the contest was held this year), or Swiss (because the EBU is based in Switzerland?)

    We hear about drug taking in sports such as athletics because the competitors think that it makes them perform better (which it doesn't of course), but I would never have imagined Eurovision having a drug problem in a million years.

    pure Eurovision !!

    It certainly looked like he was snorting a line and France, who came second, complained and wanted the Italians disqualified.
    I see though that the singer did undergo a cocaine test and it was negative. He says he was just brushing or blowing some rubbish off the table.
    Glad the best song won overall.

    I was thinking last year when Italy was the biggest country in Europe affected by coronavirus and when last year's ESC was cancelled due to COVID - I bet that if Italy had won in 2019, and (would have) hosted it last year, the decisions would have been made sooner than if the Netherlands had hosted it. Just a thought.
