    What do people think of this show?

    Personally, I think it is okay though England never wins. The song this year for our country is bloody terrible.

    This is a mix of TV and music so just put it in general section.

    When is it on? I don't really care who wins. I just watch it to see the nice foreign ladies.

    I think us Brits just see it as a bit of tacky, tongue-in-cheek fun whereas it's taken way more seriously abroad. I just watch it cos it's sort of tradition! We usually have 'Eurovision' get togethers

    I think that our song is so AWFUL this year, we might actually have a chance of winning.

    Well, not winning, obviously, what with the political voting. But doing slightly better than usual. All the really tacky songs seem to do the best at Eurovision.

    aah, Eurovision. I love it. I fall into that minority in the Uk that realy think it's a great musical event - it's a pity we don't take it very seriously.

    after seeing all the videos for this year here, I think the winner will be one of:

    Sweden
    Greece
    Romania
    Belgium
    Bosnia-Herzegovina
    Croatia
    Norway

    with honourable mention to Iceland, Finland, the UK, and Slovenia for bringing us the campest dancing ever seen.

    Just like every year then . I think the point of the contest is not to have good singers in it though, its more for entertainment.

    My imagination tells me you got those tips off somebody else and are passing them off as your own ideas. My alternative silly and unlikely idea is that you watched them all yourself.

    Oh god, Lithuania of all places! :afraid:

    Seriously though, seeing Eurovision makes me realize just why some people are opposed to us being in the EU - it's just painful, horrible...

    But I'll probably watch it anyway :p:
