    Plus there's always a number of good songs left behind

    I've usually only watched the finals since I first started watching it but for the last 2 years I've been following the youtube channel for eurovision, so i think i might watch the semis this year

    The ones that qualify to the final aren't necessarily the best

    Yeah, rehearsals were good! I don't think a win is on the cards, but top 10...maybe even top 5 is possible. At this point I think Italy is almost unstoppable. Rome 2018.

    Me and my friend make a huge deal of Eurovision every year. It used to be so much better when it wasn't taken so seriously

    Australia back again though :laugh:
    Dude, Aussies are mental about it. It's incredible. I think that's why we now seem to be a permanent fixture (lol). Plus it's all televised during the middle of the night there, so it's always mad all-nighters!

    Damn i didn't realise it was already that time of year.

    Gonna be betting again, hoping to extend my profit to 4 years in a row. Anyone got tips?

    I'll probably slap it all on UK finishing last... Feeling it after the Brexit vote.

    Remember it's 50/50 split between juries and televoting. And since last year's scoring changes the two are counted separately, so a good jury verdict ought to save us from an abysmal televote one. At least, let's hope it does.

    First time betting on Eurovison, I bet on the UK to win (it was 50/1, now it is 25/1 :eek:), to place top 10 and to be the top of the 'Big 5' countries. I'd be really surprised if the UK didn't come top 10 this year, so I hope to at least win something. :afraid:

    Amazing! Always wanted to go proper all out and have a massive Eurovision party. I bet a late night Aussie Eurovision party/BBQ would be amazing! Plenty of drinks and Eurovision. What's not to love?
