It's weird, last year I moved on immediately after the contest, as I was so disgusted with the results (not just our poor placing, but also what was in top 10, apart from the winner...) In fact I...

Just a final bit of information, as I probably forgot to say this earlier - we were seen as quite the jury favourites (like 2nd placed in UK jury :)), but actually in some countries it was the other...

Oh no, I wasn't referring to you at all! :) Ok, I think we just have to agree to disagree on Nightwish.

Funny though, if you think "Bye Bye Beautiful" was a bit too much and too personal, you should...

To those points in your last paragprah, I could say those are quite typical features of Finns actually, Finnish men especially. Not wanting or being able to talk about difficult subjects, or too much...

Hmm, judging from everything I know about him (ever since the very start of the band's career), he's actually quite modest and his ego could actually do with some boosting! He is self-absorbed and...

Well, yeah, Bon Jovi can be seen as slightly cheesy, but to many it brings teenage memories, that's why it's so liked I guess.

And of course I know those bands you mentioned; Amorphis actually used...

Yeah, to my knowledge in most of Europe Eurovision is actually shown on a channel that has no ads, i.e. a non-commercial channel. Here in Finland it definitely is.

It's surely clear for everyone that it was Russia that was booed, not the girls...!


Sorry if this is a stupid question, but why don't you in the UK have a full-fledged forum for Eurovision alone?...

Me too, that and this year's entry are the only Azer entries I've liked. Just a pity that they got their worst ever result with one of their best entries :(
