An absence of Eurovision May 28

Regular readers of this blog will know that I usually post a summary of the Eurovision entrants around this time of year. Alas, what with elections and then post-election holidays and then going to the pub a bit, this year there will be no blog post. I know, it’s a tragedy.

However, it’s not all bad news. I’ll be live tweeting along with the Eurovision final on Saturday night on my twitter account, so much of the, er, insight that usually finds its way onto this blog will be available there. Watch out for numerous Blake’s 7 references.

You can also fill this blog-post-sized hole with my contribution to this week’s Pod Delusion podcast. You’ll find me wittering on about Eurovision (recorded in one take I’ll have you know) around 26 minutes in:

Finally, don’t forget to tune in yourself to BBC One at 8pm on Saturday (or some red buttony thing that I don’t have that gives you the lyric subtitles). I’ll be backing Denmark. Or maybe Romania. Or maybe Albania. I haven’t quite made up my mind. And whereas last year I correctly predicted (for once) that Norway would storm to victory, there’s no such obvious victor this year.

  1. I found myself in the same situation this year – instead of writing about the Eurovision I tweeted it – twitter and Facebook have reduced my desire to blog as I have other outlets for my um… opinions.

    Will be live tweeting as well and of course – watching yours – Eurovision is what Twitter was made for.

    I’ve rather enjoyed a slightly different way of blogging about Eurovision this year and deliberately avoiding the rehearsals. Ryan’s right. Tweeting is brilliant fun during the show – I’m always amazed though how the conversation trails off as soon as the voting starts.
