    What does that have to do with anything? Anyone who knows anything about the USSR knows that Stalin deported Tartars (and millions of other non-Russians) to Central Asia, it isn't an unknown story. Ukraine never entered a song about the plight of the native Crimean population before - the only reason they're doing so now is because they've lost the Crimea and want it back.
    I mean we can go into the whole political aspect of it but I think that even then she is still giving perspective, I understand your opinion though.

    I bet £10 for Australia to win at 16/1, £10 for France to win at 13/2 and £10 for Italy to be the best big five country at 3/1. (I got a £10 free bet, I'm not that crazy). I think with the new voting method, truly great songs have a better chance of doing very well. I would've been reluctant to back these three countries last year under the previous voting method.

    Fingers crossed!

    Well it looks like Russia is going to win, and France will probably beat Italy.

    Both are equally as likely. I can't help but think that votes by the public for Russia would be hindered by politics. It's a great song, and should not be affected by that. Nevertheless, it was still a big factor in me not backing them. Regardless, they still did very well last year.

    I think Dami Im has a hint of Loreen in her song and voice... that's one of the biggest reasons I backed Australia.

    Very unlikely that anyone will ever get zero points under the new voting system.
