      Hey, I never said they were the musical geniuses however what acts in Eurovision really are? :rolleyes: You need a catchy song and a gimmicky singer or group.

      I wouldn't say many of friends like them either however there is no denying that they sell out most venues to the teenie-bopers these days
      Hah, I didn't say anything about any of them being musical genius. I'm just going on what I know of Jedward and the fact they are plain annoying.

      If we were holding a competition to find the most credible and taltented artist in Europe then Jedward would be no hopers....but this is Eurovision, where kitsch, camp and crazy is the name of the game. So in a bizarre way, I think Jedward are the perfect choice. And preferable to Blue...at least Jedward haven't been caught pissing on a public cash point.

      Jedward are 2nd favourites to win overall.. so I think we can guarantee them qualifying tonight. If I'm wrong, Stray_talk, feel free to message me your home address so I can send you a large Domino's pizza of your choice.

      Yes, I'm THAT SURE they'll go through. What of it. :cool:

        Then why didn't these guys win?


        Eh, I'd not want Jedward or Blue to win but like I've said, I've seen more entertaining acts and presumably ones that don't act like total n00bs a la Jedward

          Ireland's song is also catchy and is known around Europe. Did you forget that fact? Plenty worse than Jedward's song tbh. I'm pretty confident it will make it to the final and the top 10. Winning would be unlikely though.

          Yeah, I actually really quite like the song! I hope she does well

          And as for Jedward, I quite like how much they annoy other people, and though they can't sing their song is ruddy catchy...

          If I could vote tonight I'd be voting for Bosnia & Herzegovina. I even downloaded it from Amazon.

            Where's all the cheese? :sad:

            The songs so far have been good but where are all the dance beats and camp performances? Dana International better not fail to impress.

            I want something like this:

            The song of Belgium was great! This was real music! Sadly, real music is not the thing Eurovision needs :P
