    Eurovision Live thread

    It's a bizarre ritual that is either essential viewing or utterly perplexing, depending on your take. But as it is nearly upon us, here's a thread for live discussion of the Eurovision song contest from Portugal.

    "The worst moron is the one too stupid to realise they're a moron."

    Just over 30 minutes to go! Got the say if the UK song finishes in the top half it'll be a miracle. Also keep your eye out for the 'Emotional Pirate' from Lithuania, that song's so much better if you see at as her going, "Aaarrrr."

    I'm already very excited because of that post alone!

    Always loved me a bit of Eurovision. It's cheesy as hell abut stupidly fun. And I do like the message and intention behind it, uncool as that may be.

    But watching it with Leaf and Oli and now Imp is the best part!

    I sit in the room while it's on, then make snide comments about countries voting for their near-neighbours. It's sort of a tradition.

    Haha I get together every year with my parents to watch it, used to watch it growing up and all laugh with Terry Wogan together. Now I've found out Eurovision's even more enjoyable with the aid of alcohol.

    On the message, the best part for me is how strongly they get behind it. Like on Thursday when it was announced the EBU (European Broadcast... Union?) banned the TV network in China from broadcasting tonight because they sensored/cut out parts of Tuesday's Semi Final. Big set o' balls on the EBU!

    10 minutes to go! Oh yeah, also the hosts are so bad at their 'comedy' bits this year. Cringe worthy hosts are back, ooo yeeah.

    This is the most hilarious thread in the history of LOP. I might watch with beer just for the discussion.

    I'm probably the least apologetic Eurovision viewer you'll find! I love the thing, warts and all!

    I remember watching for the first time in 1997 - the last time we won it no less! My god, that song was bloody terrible....

    Indeed she is. And Norway have brought their epic winner in too. It's a real who's who of who are you!

    We even have the lady from LazyTown representing Portugal!

    Side effect of watching with the parents, working to be on time for something is an alien concept. So I'm gonna be about 20-25mins behind the rest of you. Bright side, I can skip through the host's nonsense. So suck it, the rest of you have to suffer!

    Melovin looks like he's one hell of an Undertaker fan. Spitting image of the fan plants they had for the guy in the mid 1990s!

    AND HE STOLE ALESTEIR BLACK'S ENTRANCE!

    And he stole Gangrel’s shirt!

    EDIT: There will be double posting during this thread.

    I dislike Ukraine a lot. Mostly because he scares me. But just dreadful.

    I love Nortonís commentary so much.

    The stair's are on fire. Somebody doesn't want him to come down. Ever. Poor Gang-stair Black.

    And yeah, Norton is awesome. Nobody will beat Wogan, but Norton has done a stand up job taking over!

    Spanish dude's voice is annoying the hell out of me already.

    Sorry. I prefer Norton. Heís very Eurovision and slightly less downbeat about it all. Woganís Cynicism started to grate.

    Spain is more my cup of tea. Cheese all the way.

    This could win. Cheesy with the crowd participation but also ticks all the boxes of what is popular these days in music.

    And she’s gorgeous.

    I enjoyed that. It was on mute whilst I ordered food though.

    This song does nothing for me and the only observation I can make is that it sounds like she is orgasming in the chorus.
