 Favourite for me so far is Austria with their 'Fuck him in the popo' lyric.

This is the technical challenge of the year. The best commentary is from Ken Bruce on Radio 2. The TV picture is digital, I've got a number of digi boxes, but does the delay on digital TV match the delay on digital radio. Why o' why doesn't the BBC broadcast the Ken Bruce commentary on the red button?

I was watching it at work, whilst trying to sort out what was happening with a slightly weird rsync using ftp.

I think this years award for strangeness (so far) has to go to Russia with their troupe of singing grannies.

Albania was rather weird (almost a prerequisite for Eurovision I realise), Israel seemed a bit camp, but I quite liked the Facebook song, done by San Marino, which had to become the Social Networking Song, because of Eurovisions ban of any commercial message in songs.

I thought Jedward were actually a bit meh, and not half as nutty as they seem to have been in the past, or maybe I'm just getting used to them and desensitised!
Actually, it is rocket science.

London members are invited to my place in Limehouse. Let me know if you wanna pop down. It'll be on a BIG screen with a BIG sound system for full effect.

Loved the comment last night likening Jedward to a golden shower.

Apparently the Spanish don't want to win because they would be able to afford to host next year.  Wonder how they going to get on with the 19bn euros bailout of Bankia?

I would hope so.  They are trying to raise money for their church.

As far as I understand Jedward are doing it in order that no part of the western world remains oblivious to their lack of talent/self-respect.

Russia is probably one of the few countries that can still afford to host it.

Who are this lot? I have the red button subtitles on and it covers the name of the country. They're like some sort of Eurovision Blue, and that's not a good thing.
