    Yeah.. um... that's sort of the appeal to most of us, duh.

    I'm sure the bitchy vitriol of norton will make up for it :)

    I can think of nothing worse than camp gay bitchiness. It's not entertainment, it's just noise.

    Wait, given this, you're watching eurovision why exactly:p ?

    that's a bit like objecting to a commentator being a bit aggressive at a bare knuckle fight:p

    I need some drinking games to play when Eurovision is on.

    We currently have the sweepstake and when your country sings you have to drink a shot, but there must be more.

    One drink?

    Possibly two if they win.

    That's got to be the worst drinking game I've ever heard of. :p

    For a Eurovision drinking game, you could have had a drink every time Terry Wogan said something bordering on the xenophobic. You'd be pissed by the first-half hour. Now he's gone though...

    Most drinking games revolved around a) Wogan being a cantankerous old man b) highly predictable voting. With a) gone we're going to have a drink every time Norton makes a ham-fisted sexual innuendo, although he's probably got the producers all over him to keep it clean and daily mail friendly (read fucking boring).

    I think the best drinking game with Eurovision would be to drink until you think the UK have a chance of winning.*




    * drinking that amount may actually kill you.

    Would the Daily Fail readership watch Eurovision though?

    Wouldn't they complain that the British invented the concept of singing and pop music and the like and that Johhny-Foreigner can piss off back to where he came from if he thinks he's better than the British at it?

    Maybe Norton will surprise us all...

    Just drink until watching Eurovision seems like a good idea.*





    * drinking that amount...oh you get the idea.

    It's not great. It reminds me of that 'I am What I am' song. By which I mean, it's really gay.

    Azerbaijan and the moody girl with the straight black hair and the violin (Poland?) for top 5 spots.

    Netherlands to be cast into a pit, never to be heard again.

    Does anyone have a link to a pdf of all of the flags that are in the eurovision 2009 final?

    I can't seem to find one.

    There's been some years I quite liked listening to a few tracks, so I'm glad to not have Terry fuckface drunkenly taking the piss the whole time. On the other hand, I missed it last night. D'oh

    But yeah, the hosting country goes to all the effort of organising big long set pieces to fill some breaks and like a twunt he'd rabbit over it. Fuck off, or put him _on_ the red button.

    What was the UK's entry again? Bunch of chavs singing about their dole cheque being late and running outta scag? Or did we have something decent this year?

    haha! I remember that. Wogan got away with loads of stuff, but he was still a boring person. Norton might spice it up a bit if he's aloud to say what he wants. Should be funny.

    Went down hill from here - keep him on the radio away from me.

    Same idea, but just have a drink every time Graham Norton says something containing sexual innuendo. You'll be pissed in 10 minutes.

    lol - I bet when he watches all this stuff about how we're "finally taking Eurovision seriously" this year, he sits there frowning, muttering "but I *did* take it seriously!!"

    Never send a Daz Sampson to represent Britain.

    Is anyone suspicious of our entry?

    I remember watching the mini-audition show to get Jade. They went though a lengthy process of whittling down applicants, when they where down to the top 8 or so, one of them "dropped out" and Andrew quickly found Jade as a replacement, then she sails though the knockout process.

    Then I heard the song and lost hope and interest in our entry immediately.

    The song is bloody awful. And Lord Andrew's a freak. A major freak. I feel like going up to him and saying, "Oi! Clean shirt". He'd then think "Wait, isn't that a good thing?"
