On Saturday was the Eurovision Song Contest. I don’t really care for the ESC, nor do I watch it regularly. I tend to think most of the songs suck and the whole thing is just boring and/or annoying. I do love the score board at the end though.
But this year we did some live blogging on eurout, so of course, as the entertainment editor I had to participate. I decided the best way to go about this is to have something to drink. The something soon turned into quite a binge.
Actually, I did not even drink THAT much, but I was drunk enough as if I had done so. Oh well, at least I had a really good time. Plus I think I did not say anything too embarrassing and I could still type. So yay for me.
What I couldn’t do so well anymore was write. I already am not blessed with very nice penmanship, but the notes I made while watching the ESC look simply horrible. I was going to scan them in, but I decided I am too lazy to do so.
Just trust me when I say those notes are a mess. I did manage to sort of deciphering them, so here’s what I thought about some of the entries:
Sweden: Horrible, crap song…awful dress…nice lady. HOT ARMS! Damn.
Iceland: Nice sweet song and cute girl
Lithuania: Boring, but cute boy in a boyband-ish kind of way
France: Patricia Kaas is not really my taste, but I do think she is way too good to be taking part in Eurovision
Greece: SO GAY!!! Where are we? Are we in Moscow or at a gay club?
Russia: WTF! @ The close ups. Before the end of the song I was shouting: MAKE IT STOP!
Bosnia & Herzegovina: Weird….with drummers…and a red stage….I kinda like it.
Moldavia: Everyone seems to love it….I don’t get it.
Malta: Nice background music…I like the sparkly stage
Estonia: Like it! Nice song! Nice girl! Violins! She has a lovely smile! My favourite so far!
Denmark: It sucks. It’s like a bad Boyzone cover!
Germany: LOL! So CRAP!
Turkey: Average song. Hot women dancing. I love Turkey. Every time (Huh? Not sure what I meant, but I sure seemed to have liked Turkey)
Norway: SO BAD!!! Boy can’t sing! No one hears it…They like him. WTF?
Ok to sum it up….
WORST: Germany, Norway and Finland!
FAVE: Estonia (& the arms of Sweden)
Who won? Norway. And by a lot. I still don’t get it….(I might have said that A LOT on Saturday night).
Did you watch Eurovision? If so, what did you think?
