Well since the first semi-final just went down I figured we should really start the thread.

I think the thing we need to discuss first is Macedonia. that solo came out of nowhere and made me wet myself in delight.

Everything in that semi final was dreadful. The Finnish one was actually uncomfortable to watch.

If ever there was an argument for auto-tune, that was it.

I think we should discuss whether Israel has yet again provided attractive female singers. They have been rather consistant in that field of the competition and I am eager to see what they are to provide on this occasion.

Example:



Knowing my luck they will be male this year.

I didn't watch it, but I hope Finland wins anyway. Who was their entrant?


Some dodgy folk duo.

Seriously though, youtube Macedonia's entry. The guitar solo at the end puts all your skills to shame

A folk music group of blondes. By which I mean, they played pop with two blondes, two brunettes and an accordion (and an inaudible violin).

Actually, alot of the guitarists here are better than that. I hate to break it to you, but that looked incredibly easy compared to even some of the exercises in the AT forum.

Looking up the macedonia entry, this was in the youtube comments:

"It is a great song iwth reat artists! and Macedonia is not ashamed! Cause we are not racist!"

Lol'd

EDIT: disregard that...it was just audio, yet completely different from when I found the video

My sister's pretty easy too but that doesn't mean she isn't brilliant in bed.

(note, I used my sister because using your mum may warrant some kind of ban)

Ok no, who cares, it was a good solo, nice sweeps and a really nice sound.

Yes, but to say that it's better than us was somewhat offensive to me. Also, I wouldn't have minded a your mum joke

Not racist? Weren't the Macedonian Football Association discplined by UEFA because the Macedonian fans were making racist chants at a qualifier with England back in 2003 or so?

Sieben, sieben, ai lyu-lyu
Sieben, sieben, ein, zwei
Sieben, sieben, ai lyu-lyu
Ein, zwei, drei

That's my favourite Eurovision memory, along with the 2008 Bosnian entry

I'll definitely be watching it this year. I've no idea what the entrants are like though so I'm still open.

Since when have you known Finnish, mister?

And now I definitely want Kuukuiskaajat to win, because they are singing in Karelian, not Finnish. Karelians are lush, and Karelian is lush ^__^

The only decent thing about Euro Vision was Terry Wogan, now he's gone it's useless

I read from another article about Adrian Chiles that Adrian Chiles brings to football what Terry Wogan brought to the Euro Vision. And that is not to take football or the EV too seriously like other people do, since they just have a laugh about it and enjoy it.

Ooh, Eurovision.

Perkele.


>_>

<_<

/does not know any other finnish words.


I think Eurovision is expensive (for the host nation), harmless fun. The songs are ridiculous, Spain always goes for a stereotyped 'ai ai ai' song, the Russians always bring some kid who looks like he just left an orphan and was subsequently dressed in Ralph Lauren clothes, and the English make sweeping generalisations about everyone else, before bitching about the state of music in the country in the national papers the morning after.

Also google translate is the greatest thing ever invented. I even have it on my phone.

Have you guys checked the hosting country's own artist, he's pretty boring.

On another note, Macedonia's entry's pretty much awesome!

Eurovision is expensiveee to host. The host country's song is always shit because they really don't want to pay to host it again
