I think there would be no more scandals as there are only two countries that has had some problems with Russia recently. I mean Ukraine had a gas row and Georgia had a war. Seems like the other European countries coexist right now more or less peacefully with Russia.

Throughout time Eurovision has become rather a political contest , than a creativity one!!
I claim this because there were songs which really deserved the 1st place, the reason of not winning the competition was,of course,the one aforesaid.

I like the song of Greece last year.

This year my fav is Turkey {-:

What about you ?

Which are your favourites ?

Hello everybody! Would you do me a favour?
The name of the singer who will represent my country(Belarus) at this contest is Petr Elfimov. And here is a link to his official video with the song.

Hello neighbour!
Well, as far as you haven't asked about his song I will judge only about his appearence ;-) - yesterday I saw him on TV - in comparison with a black-haired one that represented Belarus a year or two ago (please, can't recollect the name, but he was truly handsome) - Petr is less attractive! :-P But please don't feel offended, just a single opinion. I also find him a bit chubby and I can't stand when men die hair and wear tight pants.

And about the song - I don't know I never like ones that win the contest, The one thing I'm sure in - ours is uglier - I mean both the singer and the song :mrgreen:

Thanks for your opinion, Tora. As for me, I don't like Petr either. Many people blame him for being too arrogant and selfish. Besides, the song could be better. I don't think he'll be extremely successful at Eurovision.

Woof, I'm happy I haven't heart your feelings. Well, I suppose here it's quite an event, even my beloved Prime-minister visited the eurohouse or something of that kind.

I suppose I'll watch the final, whike the rest I can easilly skip ;-)

Let me be the first one to comment on the show this morning - for the first time I'm so proud of the show that my country has presented, I believe it was one of the most exciting in the history of this contest. The singers were quite good to my amazement.
As for my preferences - Portugal, Iceland, Norway, Turkey and Armenia.
erm, the ukranian girl was a mere example of how common society thinks about slav ladies - the next step after this is sexual slavery, very vulgar.

I liked Estonia, but the chorus melody still remembers me about some other song I can't recognize
The British girl has a wonderful voice, but unfortunately the song was really boring :~:
I don't want to comment on our singer, I have already spoken about it :~: :roll:

That' all, folks!
