Well I have loads to tell you, but first last nights Eurovision…..well what did you think?
We had our own party….sad! We sang along to the songs and danced (to some of them). Now either I’m getting old or something because I didn’t find it too bad to watch last night. The voting was mad, everytime Germany got a vote Andy started singing last years winning song! I was so tempted to film them all being muppets but thought I better not.
Usually I feel like I’ve been watching it for a fortnight and although it’s a pain it’s something that has to be done, like going to the dentist.
Anyway dare I say it I actually enjoyed last nights show. Graham Norton is hilarious with all his little comments.
I was glad Germany won because it’s a really catchy song. I also wouldn’t have minded Turkey winnning: MaNga sound like a really good band, I will have to check them out. I am going to download both of these songs onto my ipod…..oh dear there really is no hope for me.
As we were watching I was on twitter and magicmum. Phil Jupitus made me laugh when he said Niamh Kavanagh looked like she’s been sponsored by Cadbury with her purple dress.
People are complaining that the UK and Ireland did so badly and blaming the voting tactics…..but would you buy either of those songs?
The UK were badly out of tune and it was an 80’s song which would have been OK in the 80’s but not now.
The Irish song was like one of those ballads from the 90’s and I’m guessing Niamh was put in because she won in 1993….but that was 17 years ago. I remember it well because I was in hospital waiting for Jono to put in an appearance.
Other countries put in young, trendy looking girls (wearing next to nothing) and Ireland put in Niamh.
Well what do you think? Was it better then other years? Or am I just sad?
Oh and by the way, the photo isn’t ‘my’ lovely horse. It’s just a reference to Father Ted’s Eurovision entry. I say this because someone did think it was my horse.
