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

Wouldn't mind fewer dancers, too.

So would Switzerland have one verse to the tune of another in French, one in Swiss and one in German or three singers simultaneously singing in different languages?

I've done my duty, I've watched it so far with Mrs. B.  Gonna sidle off now to read the internets.

Malta had a cute singer and a ukelele.

Judging by the semis my faves are going to be Switzerland and Romania as long as they both got through.

Blimey, you're looking closely!

It's a bit samey this year isn't it? Bland, uncomplicated, obvious melodies, and with a few exceptions they're all singing in Ingerlish, as though they're taking it seriously. Not like back in my day when the songs were tuneless rackets and you couldn't understand a word they were saying.

Romania: good falsetto there. Not cheesy. At all.

I couldn't possibly comment.

Mainly because I wouldn't know the right note if I was formally introduced to it.

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.

That would be an old rule. They've had it a few times and then abolished it.

Iceland's song has been driving me nuts because it reminded me of something else. It's finally hit me -  Hallelujah. Leonard Cohen's lawyers should be called.

You'd end up with Ardal O'Hanlon singing Hey Nonny Nonny for Norway again.
