I only watched the first hour of the Eurovision semi-final live because I switched to Big Brother at 9. The freaks at Eurovision had nothing on the housemates… There were the toffs, the idiots, obligatory OTT gays (at least most of the other housemates probably can’t spell “stereotype”), the sociopath, the bimbos… What an awful bunch to be stuck with. One or two might be sane/normal – but for how long?
Back to Eurovision. Despite having ranked Armenia above Slovenia, it was the chap from the latter who gave the better performance but the former who went through to the final (the country’s first). And gosh – Belgium went out! I didn’t notice straight away, it seemed so unlikely. Rob will be disappointed. Other OK tracks that went through include the entries from Russia, Turkey and Bosnia – plus the mighty Lordi from Finland. Alas, Ireland and the nonsense from Lithuania also qualified.
I’m starting to consider the possiblity that Finland will win. Not having been sold on Sweden, I suspect I’ll end up voting for Finland and Germany.
