    Agreed that Israel's song was the catchiest and, in the post Harvey Weinstein world lyrics about not treating women like toys captured the Zeitgeist perfectly. Thought Denmark's (Viking/ Game of Thrones vibe) deserved to do better than 4th.

    My favourite all-time Eurovision songs are the 1992 Greek one by Cleopatra - Olou tou Kosmou and Vicki Leandros singing L'Amour est Bleue back in 1967.

    Neither is Canada, Armenia or Morocco.
    As long as they're members of the Eurovision Broadcasting Union though, any country is eligible to participate in the contest.

    I have heard that with Israel though - that the matter is same as with Football - that there would be near on riots etc, aas all sides juyst can not get on, if they got put into say a Song Contest as with Football Matches - which I am sure their Middle Eastern Neighbours runsimilar contests to the Euros as is with Football

    Though by rights parts of Russia and in-particular Turkey are both situated on two continents and often participate - Turkey more so as a bridge in Istambul links the European part and the Aisan/Middle Eastern part as I am sure is similar with parts of Russia (or ex USSR like Kazahstan and Georgia etc - but by the same token Siberia is only 20 miles over the Water (if that) to Alaska - so make of that what you will!

    @ Dartren - as though as muchg much as I am a proud Englishman who has extremley remote Irishness in him (though I am not going to reve4al my real name on here - it's as Irish as Baileys) I also have lins to Australia by blood (though again not-direct) but through my Mum's Auntiew and Uncle becoming Honourable Austaliuan's in the 60ss - as much as people condem the Australian and say nasty things about them in how the place was founded - for me Australia and the British Isles are the greatest Nations on earth and as much and though it was an extremley crazy idea adding Australia (abliet as a "Guest Nation") I agree with the idea , in that as well England, Ireland and Austrlia are so linked now in Modern Times I feel and I just love the thought of them being involved. In conclusion i would have them as Guests" fgor as long as they are happy to be in it - I think it'd be acurate of me to say

    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 agree Darren - all this is true mate yes, with the likes of Dana and Brotherhood of Man and Abba wining how they did with Waterloo - as time just moves on etc and that is all it becomes (not a Musical Contest)! .... but hey though we can but hope/dream right!!!

    Which is why Israel, despite being a Middle Eastern country, is obliged to compete in the European group for the World Cup qualifiers. Several islamic states refuse to compete against Jews.
