Is it just me or is every song angst-ridden? Boom-bang-a-bang!

Is this the Swedish singer or is it Queen Boadicea with claws?

Austria so far. Mind you, I did enjoy the semi-porn in the Poland entry....

Well Greece gives Cyprus douze and Cyprus gives Greece douze. If that's supposed to be a political statement it's a pretty poor one and hardly one that will stick in the memory, let alone start or end a war. It's far more likely to make both countries minor laughing stocks than anything. Let it be. Horses for courses indeed! No-one is forcing anyone else to turn the telly on!

The viewers votes have always been poitical but you would expect allies to support each other. Apart from the UK and Ireland seemingly! Other than that, no, it is pretty non-partisan.

As to the performances, well, yes. The performance of a song can be of equal importance to the song itself in terms of enjoyment. Why else have live performances if not for the visual impact as well as the music? If you want to hear perfect music, listen to a rcording. If you want all senses stimulating, go to a live performance. Horses for courses!

More about theatre and politics than music these days?

I’ll be doing the same as you, Steve - spag Bol on knee, but without the wine (Mrs Backwoodsperson will probably swig enough for both of us!).

Mebbe. Let's hope it goes well (as it's Liverpool l'm sure it will!), and either see it as a whole bunch of fun or just don't bother with it!

I heard a discussion on BBC2 this morning where it was said that the UK was lucky to be presenting the ESC because, if it wasn’t for the war in Ukraine, it would have been presented from Ukraine.

I beg to differ. If there was no war in Ukraine, the ESC would still be being held in the UK because, without the huge sympathy/solidarity vote, the (IMHO, pretty poor) Ukraine entry wouldn’t have won last year, Sam Ryder’s UK entry would have taken the top spot.

All IMHO, of course, and YMMV.

Well it certainly brings our family together. None of us can stand it at any price. But thanks for not starting this as a music thread.

We wanted to watch the ten o'clock news on BBC 1, but had to endure for the SECOND time the selection of the final ten for 10 mins before the News started.
I have enjoyed some of the old songs from past Eurovisions, eg Bucks Fizz 'Making Your Mind Up' and Abba 'Waterloo'.
Tut tut, I must try to stop living in the past!

Absolutely not my kind of music on show, ever. And I certainly haven't been watching these pesky semifinals. But I can't help meself. I watch the bloody thing on Saturday night every year, get all animated about who should win and what's utter crap, etc., and absolutely love to slag off Graham e**ing Norton. One year, we even had a party-with-sweepstake on it. Ye gods. But I'll be there on Saturday night, spag bol on knee, bottle of red to hand (essential for getting through it - the corkscrew will be on standby just in case a second bottle is called for...)

Wouldn't miss it for the world. It brings people together, it's in Liverpool fer chrissake, one of the world's friendliest and most inclusive cities (with the greatest football club in the history of humanity) and it's in honour of Ukraine. Be there or be square!
