Well... I'm not actually watching it but I can hear Eurovision on the gogglebox.

 

It's only the highlights because it's vote time and we were watching Gotham (Box-Set).

 

Netherlands entry sounds good to me !

I saw a few clips just now, and I think Israel won something <<< OMFG I watched that girl and wanted to smite her down ;) ... Cypriots and French were both quite effective I thought.

It's not over until the fat lady from Israel sings?

I watched your clip ^^ late last night Outcast_Aussie. It's outrageous <<< that's all I got :P

... on further thought, it thoroughly craps all over Israel's entry :)

 

Jessica Mauboy needs to sack her fashion advisors. She's never looked good. Not since she left Idol anyway. She could be sooo classy, it's a shame. Her song was a bit, meh.

And who ever did her choreography needs smacking upside the head. She just looked awkward and uncomfortable throughout IMO.

The problem is, like Australia, Asia is not part of Europe. It's called "Eurovision" for a reason :)

Just a slight alteration to "Eurovasian Song Contest" and it'd be done. With a properly sophisticated marketing campaign, they could probably fool people into believing that it had always been called that.

"EveryoneExceptTheUSVision Song Contest" - IMO expanding it just shrinks it's credibility.  It is what it is, if they want some worldwide or wildcard entry alternative then create one and leave the original the fuck alone.

The Europeans are just aware of the fact that they can't compete on a musical level.

Agreed, Such a shame as back when I saw that Idol show, I thought she was a really promising person to keep track of . Hell of a good voice with a natural appeal. But most any time I saw her after wards she was just not right somehow.

Actually, I didn't mind her in the film The Sapphires.

 

Ooo not to sure about " Eurvasion " ... it sounds like a skin irritant or something.

Nonetheless, just look at what Asia has to offer.

 

 
Tragically, European artists displaying such extraordinary talents tend to be quickly institutionalised. Asia is far more accommodating and typically waits until these artists are in their mid 20s before removing them from polite society.

some of the bollywood-esque arm movements were executed well enough in isolation, but the whole thing just didnt hold together well.  really wasnt a fan of the parts where she squatted for a shit. 

 

and the song itself was a whole lot of meh.  she can do so much better.

 

and yeah, she hasnt been "right" for a while.  she is a great singer, and she has an abundance of beautiful features.  but at her best, a huge proportion of her overriding appeal is down to her actual personality, not the one increasingly denatured by filtration through the corporate machine.  too many ill-informed and ill-fitting cues taken from Beyonce et al when she should be opting for minimalism and naturalism.  ie. lose the femme fatale pretensions and manufactured glam, and just sing.


no pung intended

The underlined I giggled at. Exactly the thought I had when I saw her clip the other night <<< but I thought I was being unkind and out-of-touch :D

mmm she's got sooo much natural talent, it's like someone/s have made a concerted attempt to thwart her ... or else she just has no real idea or confidence in herself, I don't know, but I would love the chance to tell her to start being herself.

You know, it was no more weird than watching the Israel contestant ( this year's Eurovision winner no less ). I thought the guy seemed quite normal, mind you, I have no idea of what was said or sung during any of it.
