We had a great time last night. Eurovision is so ridiculous that you need to either ignore it completely or embrace it entirely.
With alcohol. (Which is free*.)
So, for those of you who missed it, we've chosen some of our 'highlights'. I use this word VERY loosely.
Our favourite was Malta, who sang a very sweet song, perhaps the only one ever with a lyric about risk assessments....
I don't remember who Graham was talking about on the commentary when he said it (Iceland?), but I'll say it about this song - If the Eurovision song contest was a contest about singing, this could have won it...
Then we loved the Lithuanian entry - a guy whose life is ruled by his shoes!
(One is called Love, one is called Spain...)
Performer with the most terrified boyfriend must go to Finland... she wrote this song as a hint for him to propose to her. I'm guessing she's not into subtlety.
And special mentions for what Jo called 'Sheer Whatthefuckery' (No, Sherlock. It's on the list.)
And Romania. It's...not what we were expecting. This is the one that made Sherlock stop and stare at the screen...
If you want more of the 'fun' you should go here and check out the other videos.
