    Norway's voice was awful. She didn't deserve to qualify.
    I have to admit the verses were really bad... but I liked the chorus

    I don't think Azerbaijan should have qualified, I thought the singing was quite dire. Not as bad as San Marino's though.

    In all fairness though, it's not one of those songs that demands a fantastic voice. It was more about the performance and the atmosphere it created with Norway than the actual singing, although yes she was a bad singer.

    No idea why Ireland thought it would be a good idea to put Jedward in as their entry.

    They should use this instead:


    It does go by vote you know, and teenage girls are fairly savage at text voting. It beat the standard girl singing ballad by 2 points in the end- Johnny Logan was disgusted! People are torn over it, there's the 'ah fair play to them they're very energetic and the song is camp enough to be perfect for eurovision' and the 'I hope someone assasinates them on stage' camp, as well as the 'don't care, won'tbe watching, I hope they don't win because we can't afford to host it' group. Personally I think it's extremely catchy and that it will at least stand out and not be forgotten. Would be cool to win but can't see a win happening ever again. The more interviews I hear with them, the more I think they're actually hilarious to listen to. Very bad I know..

    Much more likely to do better than My Lovely Horse, even if Dermot Morgan was still alive! I can see that going down like it did on the programme ha. Classic episode.

    have to say greece were awful and the rapping part made me cry of laughter!

    gutted Norway aren't in the final, though its a shock as early on during the selection process around europe (around feb time) they were the hot hot faves to win!

    Iceland is very good. I love it. Plus the story behind it.

    Finland is awesome. Love the song and the fact that it's kiddo's creation 100%.

    So, for me, till now, it's Finland/Iceland.
    Me too....they were the best. I voted for both of them and when it was getting down to like 3 left I was worried that they weren't going to get in. But they did

      I wouldn't be so sure, it's more than just a ballad conquest these days! Plenty of camp cheesy songs have done well and it's certain to not get lost among crappy love songs at least. I would be very surprised if it doesn't get through really. Don't underestimate the power of teen girls! I've said this before, but they were chosen because it was an open vote and teen girls have phones! It beat a ballad that was half decent by 2 points. Johnny Logan and a few others are disgusted. Personally I think it's very catchy and hopefully could do well. I can't see it not making the final but you never know.

      Whoa calm down with that sort of talk. Jedward will do really well, they are already pretty popular in Dusseldorf and haven't even sang yet, also their song is the most searched Eurovision song on youtube.
      Despite the fact they act like they have ADHD and are on acid the song is catchy and people warm to them...:cool:

        I know of few people in the UK who warm to them :lolwut:

        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
