Eurovision song contest

    Recommended Posts

    I'm a bit confused as to how Australia got in it in the first place, but I was very proud of my adopted representative. He did great.

    I do miss watching it live though. :-)

    I saw who the winner was via Facebook, but nothing on how Australia did. There seemed to be a bit of an argument as to whether Sweden should've beaten Italy, and whether it was down to politics lol! What did you think?

     

    As for how we got in...goodness knows! They said it was some wild-card thing, but perhaps it was gratitude for Australia showing it every year? Or as further punishment???

    It didn't seem political voting so much to me. Australia came 5th. :-)

     

    No, I figured it was just silly whining, but as I didn't see it, I couldn't judge.

     

    Coming 5th is amazing...wouldn't it have been weird if we'd won! Must've made it quite exciting to watch.

    I think Guy Sebastian didn't quite grasp the kitschness of Eurovision - if he'd dressed his backing singers/dancers in matching outfits/primary colours, or done something a bit innovative (like the guy that won did with his cartoon backers) he'd have come even higher! In Eurovision, having a good song and great voice is only part of the equation :-)
