I think the Eurovision semis just killed Twitter.

Ah well, it was fun while it lasted and Bones will be on soon.

I'm pretty sure it was Hungary's... well, let's call it a performance, okay? :D
have really come to a middle.

(Sorry for the paraphrasing!)

Ireland wasn't in it. (Don't mention the turkey!) but we had a great night thanks to (a) company, (b) wine and (c) [profile] nhw  and liveblogging on both the songs and the voting.

I voted in [personal profile] dougs  poll. No prizes for guessing what got my vote though.

So the Eurovision was won last night by a Russian ripping his shift off. Not a problem in itself. It was a good song, he could sing and of course there was the obvious. But...

Eurovision block voting.

It still annoys me, even though its basically time honoured at this time. The "please don't invade us again" vote is so patently obvious at this point. And not just from eastern europe. Finland votes 12 for Sweden? Surely not! They simply have the same taste in music. Obviously.

Bosnia-Herzogovina.... um, what? They appeared to be channeling something from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Azerbaijan had angels and devils.

Finland went heavy metal again.

The theme for the year appeared to be corsetry. That didn't help the Germans, who had rummaged in the bin of Girl's Alouds' "songwriter" for their entry.

Most of these are up on YouTube at this stage so I will leave you with shirt ripping Russians...

And the wildly overlooked Latvian Pirates (who could not have voted for the pirates?)
