I hold my hands up I enjoy Eurovision. It's mildly entertaining. But why are we always last? I understand that we are not a very popular country but even so - is this fair? There are some good reasons for hating this country but this is petty right?

P.S: I know 99% of musicians frown on EV and that so do many other people but I find some of the songs are actually quite good. I also know that I'm asking for aload of smartass answers but hey - that what the 'Pit' is all about.

So Andy Abraham the Binman - very mediocre - what do you think?

But rock bottom? Come on there was worse up there...

See Eurovision thread for my input and view.


You lay me down as I go to the store
Sorrow ate me, I'm not me anymore
Play these heavens one more time
I'm not yours and I'm not mine


When you hear music after it's over, it's gone in the air.
You can never capture it again.

Yeah, I hate England. Don't know why though, I always have.

#17
We're always last cause we're always crap.

Wow. We suck.

We could have Paul McCartney write the song and another big star to sing the song, we'd still rank bottom.

no, if there's one country almost-universally hated it's the US, though England is a close second due to association

Its because all the eastern European countries in-vote for political reasons, the French hate us (so far as to never ever give their results in English) and the few other countries don't vote vote for us straight up because our entries are always stupidly crap.
#23
Not too fussed that we didn't get higher than last place, im just pissed
that Greece didn't win, i wanted to see that singer again!!
#25
its cos we hav bad taste in music and dont pic the right stuff. and how come for "england" i didnt see one white guy in our act? i mean wat the hell, it was like a jazzy thing

Eurovision has nothing to do with talent. The Judges consist of a few drunken CEO's who decide to vote on whichever country has the most prostitutes.
#29
England loses because whoever they send to represent them is always either terrible or not poppy enough, simple really. and I think I'm probably the only American on this forum that actually watches Eurovision or knows what it is (yay satellite TV)
make Industrial and/or experimental electronic music? Join my group!

Then you'd know, or should do, that this is wrong. It's political...

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

I liked the English song

I dont see why Europeans dislike England. I dislike England (the country, not the people) because of what arseholes they were in Africa. But yeah, that was a long times ago.

England didn't do anything but more forces to the french border when poland was invaded.

Well, I see the ban-hammer coming down on some people if tongues aren't kept tight.

Still, Wikipedia threw up some interesting ((and mildly comforting)) facts!

The United Kingdom holds the best record at the Contest in terms of average scoreboard position; having finished in the top two in 20 out of 52 Contests (1956–2007).


Suck on that, Ruskis.

Terry Wogan is the only reason alot of people bother with eurovision now anyway he always makes me laugh at just how ****e it really is, he makes it fun to watch. As for england if we keep going the way we are its just going to get worse, but theres time for change yet so its not all bad.
