    Eurovision 2019 - Live Thread

    Good evening, Europe, this is Lords of Pain calling!

    It's that time of year again folks. After last year's Eurovision thread bizarrely but rather quite wonderfully became the most active thread on the Forum of the night of 2018's song contest, I figured it would be a good idea to make another. So post here if you're watching this year's contest, due to kick off in around 40 minutes, live from Tel Aviv!

    My brother's American wife is watching with for the first time, she watched the semi-finals with us, but we've not told her they go round every single country one by one for the judges votes, "This is the next hour of your life, Hannah, time you'll never get back... and then you'll willingly do it again next year."

    That last line is the most perfect definition of Eurovision I think I've ever read lol. I haven't seen either of the Semi-Finals, so going in completely blind apart from our own entry. Which...well, UK gonna UK, right?

    I've heard Australia might win, and have to nominate a European country to host.

    Still confuses the help out of me that the Aussies are a part of this...

    Fantastic - start with Malta dancing like your Mum at that relatives' wedding while doing an awful karaoke mix-up of Chameleon. Start as you mean to go on!

    Pretty sure Albania hosts a property show here, the name of which escapes me right now...

    Location, Location, Location! That's the one.

    ‪This performance has about as much personality as Adrian Chiles doing a crossword.

    I feel like they've gone down the route of that one that won the other year that was secretly all political and stuff.

    It didn't work...

    Also, lol at Euron Greyjoy having previously hosted Eurovision.

    Nothing says this is the Czech Republic entry than dressing up in the colours of Germany.

    Totally missed that! Haha, amazing. Too busy wondering why the guy has, like, two drums. And forgetting the song immediately.

    Not a bad thing.

    The only thing I can comment on here is that he’s got nice hair.

    I didn't mind Russia. Best out of those first five - even if the staging was absolutely bizarre.

    San Marino is a dentist, who took five minutes to write his song and looks like a bad Pitbull look-a-like.

    I want San Marino to win.

    "he says the song took him five minutes to write... I imagine he spent the other four minutes shaving his head"


    On the floor.

    I mean, to be fair, Norton has been a tremendous replacement for Wogan I think. It'll never be as good, but he does a bang-up job every year and there's always a couple of laugh out loud moments from him, for my money!

    That was amazing. I want San Marino to win.

    Actually quite liked North Macedonia. Probably the best yet I think.

    Distinctive lack of socks and trousers that fit means I am of the belief Sweden should be disqualified.

    Well the last entry (Serbia, I think?) were awful. Sweden apparently co-wrote our song too, and their entry went down well, so you never know. Now we have "If Sunny were in Demolition."

    Plan, if you mean that duo, think it was Slovenia rather than Serbia.

    You have to work in Vince singing Puppet on a String.

    Before the lights came on -“It’s Peter Barlow.”
    When the lights came on - “It’s Borat!”

    It’s like we’ve found some random teen who works in Greggs and had Andrew Lloyd Webber write a song for him.
