I thought the Austrian tv's was among the better efforts, and quite a reasonable choice of winner. Disagree about the French, who IMO finished up with 3 more points than their ballsaching effort deserved; and couldn't understand the number of 12s awarded to the unconscionably bland & boring effort from the Netherlands -- must have been that beautiful hat the guy had on! I rather liked the Polish entry myself (& not only 'cos of the beautiful bosom of the strapping lass with the bucket&washboard!); and the Norwegian started rather feebly but rose to an excellent climax. Our cat liked the Polish one also because she happens to share the name (Cleo) of the Poles' lead singer!

Yes I admit it I did and like you I rated France if not to win to do better than they did, they were interesting to watch and quirky. This year I thought the presentation of the contest was very slick which added polish to most of the performers so I had difficulty in choosing tonight. For the first time in ages my elderly mother sat through the whole of the competition and enjoyed the whole thing. In recent years she would have given up and headed to bed before the voting reached halfway but it was a good atmosphere too which helped to make it enjoyable.

Austria deserved the win but there were so many this time it could have been any one of them. Netherlands, Germany, Finland, Italy, Spain. I was a little bit suspicious of Italy and I thought I could recognise a few bars from a particular rock song of the past (Hanging on a Rope?). Still watchable though.

Simon Philip Cowell, born October 7, 1959 in Lambeth, London

The Eurovision Song Contest or Eurovision, is an annual song competition held among the member countries of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) since 1956.

Pretty damn good trick by Cowell is that.

I understand, play and sing traditional music as well as enjoying social and ritual dance. I also fully enjoy the spectacle and some of the music of Eurovision. I would not dream of calling something that anyone enjoyed nonsense, even if I thought it was. But I guess that someone who does not hesitate to call a man with a beard dressed in women's clothing a freak has no such sensibilities.

Do you really like to debate, ake, or just argue? If it is the former I suggest such provocative language is out of place.

Well Dave, I mention Cowell because he produces "freak shows" for UK TV.....most of it ritual humiliation for the delectation of our moronic society.....it's worse than nonsense, it's cruel humiliation of people with often serious problems.....maybe the whole entertainment industry is full of people like that, I don't know, but I do know that the ritual has nothing to do with the music and culture that I know and love......and I include Morris and Hie'lan dancing in that.....the meaning is in the tradition.

You would not dream of calling something that anyone else enjoys, nonsense?.....Oh? I can think of many things which some people enjoy, that are "nonsense", or many times worse than nonsense.
The cruelty of killing "wild" animals for sport and pleasure being top of my list.

Provocative language.....hah! I haven't even started yet, though I make sure that I have the means of backing up everything I say.

I don't think I have ever seen a post so unrelated to what I actually posted. Probably my fault so let's go though it bit by bit. I do accept responsibility for not making myself clear enough in the first place.

You mentioned Mr Cowell in the context of referring to the Eurovision. Forgive me for not understanding that you were referring to something entirely different. If I made that mistake, I think anyone who does not know better would assume that Eurovision is just another version of Britain's got the X factor or whatever it is called. It is not. It is an event established in 1956 to showcase the best of Europe's pop music. It contains no cruel humiliation as far as I can tell. It is not a talent show and some of the best known performers from Europe and beyond have jumped at the chance to perform in it.

You also referred to a freak show in relation to the Eurovision. The winner was a cross dressing man with a beard and a very good voice. Again forgive me if the assumption was that you consider him part of the freak show was incorrect. I think calling anyone who is different to yourself a freak is cruel and unnecessary. Don't you?

Finally, it was my mistake that I did not specify that I would not call the music that anyone enjoys nonsense. I feel it is wrong to do so. The most I have ever said about the type of music I do not like is that it is not my cup of tea or I like something else better.

As to your last point about not having said anything provocative, well, I have told you why I feel it is provocative. You disagree. If you feel the need to back up your views for some reason feel free to do so but how you can "have the means" to back up anything to do with one persons personal taste being better than another's is beyond me I'm afraid.

Please refer to the thread title in any further communication and try to remember that I can only assume that your remarks are pertinent to Eurovision or at least relevant in some way.

Point 1. By whom? Point 2. No they haven't. You have enough proof on here that some people who enjoy folk music also enjoy Eurovision. How about changing your encompassing statement from 'folkies', which seems to indicate all 'folkies' to 'some people', such as yourself, which is much more accurate.

To anyone who is engaged in 'freak' bashing may I suggest you go to Conchita Wurst's web page. The opening panel says it all in two words.

I did feel sorry for the Russian sisters when performing their song knowing full well the reception they might get from the crowd. Although not impressed by the song I still thought they were brave to carry it through.

The thing with Eurovision everyone knows that it is camp or should do by now. It is hardly a surprise. The only thing that does bother me is the trend to include complex dance routines to it. It is either just a song contest or it's not IMO.

The dance and spectacle are part of it for me, Patsy. Dance and music are, in my mind, inexorably linked. I do enjoy music for itself and will quite happily listen to many different genres but something that has a foot tapping beat is just asking for either Morris dancers or traditional Polish getting kit off routines ;-)

Didn't watch the qualifying rounds this year, but those songs that did make the final
are surely the weakest and least interesting for many years ?

Graham Norton was rarely amusing; he sounded tired and sour throughout the broadcast.

Please BBC relegate the 'piss-taking' overlay commentary to optional red button
for future Eurovisions.

I must, punkfolkrocker, that there did not seem to be as many nods to the traditions of the countries concerned as there have been in the past. I can't recall when it was but I seem to remember one contest that had a good proportion of songs that could have gone down at few of the more liberal folk clubs and sessions I have been to. I don't really know if these were the weakest or least interesting because I have one of those memories that does not hold things like that so I will take your word for it.

I don't think Norton has a patch on Wogan for the commentaries but I thought he had a good try at times. I love the idea of making our own sarcastic comments and will endeavour to implement this next year. Possibly with a drinking game that will make said comments funnier and funnier as the evening goes on :-)

Al. If what you consider music was put forward it wouldn't receive mAny votes, trust me. I have lived and worked in the land of Beethoven and Bach. I still have business dealings in the area that spawned Vivaldi. I wake up in Bologna, open the shutters to let the cultural heritage of the renaissance flood my room in a four hundred year old hotel, and shut my eyes to take in the sounds.

And you know what?

The sounds coming from the street cafe below me include a medley of Chas & Dave knees up sing in Italian by a bunch of session singers with a computer drum beat behind it.

Same as in every factory, office and shop from Calais to Baku.

Many years ago, I even heard an orchestra with what suspiciously sounded like The Mike Samme Singers knocking out a jolly version of The Stranglers Golden Brown. I was having breakfast in a hotel in Munich and the waiter turned it up, started singing along.
