Im glad Azerbaidjian won, I liked the song and the act as well. Sweden was too cocky in my opinion, so I did not want them to win (even though the song was ok). I'm never too fuzzed with all the Eurovision hype, I just enjoy watching it very much.

If Israel could be part of Eurovision why can't lebanon also participate?


You're right, they're not European countries. But it's a contest for countries that are members of EBU. Countries such as Egypt and Morocco could participate too if they wanted, but I surely hope it will never come to that. :death:

I find it so funny that it's so hard to find the videos on youtube as opposed to 2009's. I like Swedish's entry. Pretty good. Blue got robbed. They should have at least ended in top 5. I love German's entry, but the performance is boring. And Jedward's one is pretty interesting.

Most videos from this year are getting removed from youtube

was it actually on tv or did you watch it online? (I watched it online for like 10 minutes but then I went out...)


Yeah, it was on tv(Rai 2), Raffaella Carrà was presenting a show with different guests(music and tv "experts" I believe, Bob Sinclair was there too), and they were commenting the performances! I just catched the last 30 minutes though, as I went out for dinner, so I haven't heard any of the songs lol

I'm actually VERY surprised Italy reached the top3, I don't like the song, it's quite boring imo, but I'm glad our comeback was a success! :D

my faves were:

Ireland
UK
Serbia
Croatia (even though they didn't make the final)

and our Slovenia had a fantastic entry finally after a few years, she was one of the best vocals of this year's competition

The winner song is alright. The Italy song was good, musically and vocally, but too 'serious' for the Eurovision song contest, but it's good that he was the 2nd, I hoped he'd win just to prove that it's about MUSIC and not back up dancers, sexy outfits etc.

My favourites were Ukraine (but I'm a bit biased, because I listen to Mika's music since 2005), Ireland, UK and Germany. Sweden was alright, overrated as usual, I prefered Charlotte Perrelli's 'Hero', which did really bad, but I think it's one of the best Eurovision songs ever. Hungary and Austria were good, too.

lol and since when is ESC about the lyrics? Overall the songs are quite silly and some are written in a language you can't even understand. It's more about the feeling, performance and melody.

it just sucks that nowadays amost all Eurovision contestants sing in English...the official language of just three countries taking part in the competition: UK, Ireland and Malta. I think that we all should be proud of our languages and cultures in Europe...

Then there was no reason to sing at all. And the message woulnd't come through. Then you can just stand there and sing a lot of crap or have the biggest meaningfull song, but no one understands

So you're not able to appreciate a song performed in a language you don't understand... wow :despise:. I believe a great artist can get the message through regardless of the language. It's not like they're gonna sing about something offensive since there's of course rules for that. Plus, a song about world peace isn't necessary better than a song about dancing. If one is that worried about the lyrics you can probably use google for a translation :grin:.
