    I never quite forgave Abba for beating them.

    Waterloo.

    There was an entry from Israel a few years ago singing about peace and harmony. Also included something about cucumbers according to the translation.

    The first I remember watching was when Brotherhood of Man won in 1976. Can't be bothered with it these days, the voting has gone far too political.

    Has to be Finnish group Lordi with Hard Rock Halleluah. I actually think the Eurovision Song Contest is dire but when Lordi blew the contest away that was brilliant. No other country votes for the uk as they are all in the fix to choose the 'winning' country - the sooner the uk is out of the EU the better I say

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    I think that the UK's success with Katrina in 1997 was well deserved - so many countries voting for us, not like nowadays!

    There was also Jemini and Daz Sampson, but they are a lot more recent.

    Thinking about Israel's win just now reminded me of their successful run in the late 1970s - give me Milk and Honey's Hallelujah any day of the week rather than the sub-Norman Collier chicken impersonation.

    I do wish that the contest was straightforward just like its 1970s heyday. Cliff Richard or the Brotherhood of Man never had to put up with intruders on the stage and sabotaging their songs, did they?
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    I enjoyed the show this weekend, the quality is much higher that the 70s, when I was first watching it...

    Ive not saw it for a long time at least 10 yrs.
    one reason being is countries will vote for each o
    ther cause their neighbours such as the scandinavian nations etc.

    Although they do now have semi finals so only the better nations songs get to the main final.

    Also didnt like how australia were in it last year as they aint a euro nation.

    I thought the standard of songs was very good this year, Israel's was quirky but deserved to win, & 3-4 others I would have been happy with winning.
