I love the Eurovision. I always have done.
Yes it’s a bit more frustrating these days with the political voting and stuff but at the end of the day you usually find the songs in the top 2 or 3 slots are actually the best songs…it’s all the others that are subject to the politics.
I reckon a few things should happen.
1. The UK should stop being a major sponsor and should qualify like everyone else. That way if we have a pants song it gets kicked out
2. We should stop trying so hard – lets have fun and enter fun songs. Eurovision about fun
3. You should be able to vote on Twitter or Social media in some way. Because that’s where the party and opinions really were. The opinions of Twitter were not reflected in the British vote and that seemed very wrong.
I had two parties going on. I had a couple of friends over (Jen and Neil) – something I’ve never done before but was really good. At the same time I was on Twitter and sharing with my friends what Twitter was saying.
I also downloaded the Eurovision App so I could keep track of our opinions and see what the community was thinking about songs. Again – for some reason the UK couldn’t vote through this app even though other countries could. What’s that all about?!
I stuck a bunch of ribs in the slow cooker and the hubby had fun concocting in the kitchen to come up with a goulash and side dishes.
The little one was settled in bed at 7pm as usual so by 8pm we had eaten and settled down in front of the TV with a beer.
The evening was great. Eurovision works brilliantly with Twitter and it is fun to have more people in the room to make fun of all the acts with.
Just so you know our favourites were:
These weren’t in any particular order.
Obviously none of them won. We didn’t have the man in a box from Azerbaijan even on the radar!
I felt sorry for Ireland. Their song wasn’t that bad. My theory is that the problem was it was a good dance track like the ones that ended up at the top and they were last so the others got the points instead. I really think it would have done better if it wasn’t last.
