Yes! Come on the Netherlands. Nice song, by The Common Linnets. I will be glued to it tomorrow. Perhaps it's the gay side of me, who knows.

That really is rather good. How did it manage to get selected for Eurovision ?
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

Yes, is good isn't it. Bit like the Civil Wars.

Now, that there Austrian singer seems an odd cove. Can't quite put my finger on it.

That is the best entry I've heard since ... well, possibly Abba/Bucks Fizz (but that's an apples/pears comparison).

Sadly it's totally un-Eurovision, and too good to win!

The Germans take this seriously.

I Might have to pop into Kempen and find a bar or something with it on. But it's an hour later here so the judging will take forever!

I quite like Molly, the UK entry, but then I thought last years entry by Dingleberry Pompadeau was good and it came nowhere.

That's probably because it was Bonnie Tyler last year.

Was Dingleberry two years ago, blimey. I liked it:

My favourite bit was the emoting, see him move his hand up and down on the key change? Genius.

Where does a hamster wheel come in the Eurovision drinking game? I quite like this Belarus nonsense, although I do not like cheesecake.

I thought the first singer looked much nicer in the short intro film, before she got caked in slap.
