Eurovision needs a new rule: you can only sing in your country's language(s). 

Alternative: Performers sing the the language of the country hosting the competition.  I think that could be fun. :)

'Nuvver alternative.  They must sing in Esperanto.

Whatever happened to Esperanto?

Say that again in Esperanto.

But does it have the answer too?

I don't think "42" works...

The young Lithuanian guy with the Lithuanian votes just  professed some sort of love for our Bonnie. Slightly odd, but sweet.

I'm defo one for Andrij's singing in the host country's language suggestion.

Well Denmark you only have yourselves to blame, last year you sent four stoned students to Baku and they were crap. This year you went credible.

I'd love to see an austerity version. People could sew foil milk bottle tops on their frocks for glitter, and the scoreboard could be operated by women with sticks, like in WWII RAF Ops rooms.

FFS!  UK voters obviously voted for Denmark's X-Factor production values.

Mrs Nutty was amazed that I picked the winner as soon as I heard it.

My votes (if I'd picked up the phone) would have been.

1) Denmark.  I loved the voice of the singer, the drumming/pipes, and the tune.
Others, and I couldn't settle the order - Malta for the lyrics, Iceland for the tune, Greece.

Others had a good set (the guy dancing upside down inside the glass box), but fell into the everybody else category of being totally let down by all sounding the same flat Eurovision durge.      France might have been a good exception to this from the voting highlight clip, but I Mrs Nutty tuned in too late for me to see that.

According to the article I read earlier, last night was an austerity version.

Somehow, and I'm not entirely sure how, I allowed myself to be persuaded to attend a Eurovision party in a riverside apartment with views of the shard. I agreed on the condition that there would be plenty of Veuve to soften the blow. On reflection, there was little that I remember before Romania. It was all terminally dull, and I busied myself watching the setting sun from the balcony.
Romania, however, made me sit up and pay attention, only to be surpassed by Azerbaijan.
Boy inna box? Priceless!
The Veuve helped. I think there was still some left when we went home at around 02:00.
An excellent evening - not quite the one I'd planned. Rescue breakfast is currently being consumed.

Oh - almost forgot. We had  fondue which included Ikea meatballs and reindeer meat, amongst other things.

The Swedish presenter was brilliant.  One of the country score announcers called her a 'milf'. She didn't react much, possibly because the culprit was many miles away.

My rule hasn't been implemented yet.

My rule:

Bjorn'n'Benny write the lyrics to a song then every country to set it to music and stage it how they see fit.

AND, it has to be performed by the PM/president of the country, Cabinet as backing singers mandatory.
