So, on a scale of "nil poi" to 10, how extremely dull and dreary is the UK's entry by Jade whatsherface, written by Sir Andy Lloyds-TSB Onionhead?

I forecast the UK finishing below a Romanian song about donkeys and a Finnish song that goes "boom-ba-ba-KLONK" over and OVER again until your ears bleed.

Yeah right! I bet you've got the party sorted where you dress up as a participating country.




Or is that just me :unsure:

:D Just you! Or maybe Ricey as well! Couldn't tell you what other contestants we had, what our song is like or where it's taking place - other than it's not here!

Moscow is a great place to visit though, might watch the beginning purely for the bit they usually do where you get a whizz tour around the sights.

I want to go to Moscow.

Was lucky enough to go with the school back in '79, not long after the Iron Curtain swung open. Amazing place, all the stereotypes we'd heard about were true - from kids all wearing Lenin buttons on their school uniforms, to people queuing for bread and people trying to barter for jeans and chewing gum at every opportunity. We got to visit a couple of schools, the ballet, some military place dedicated to space exploration, the famous store Gumm (which was more like a covered market), the Kremlin and then go on to St Petersburg for a few more days. Plus we got to stay up with the teachers drinking vodka every night - brilliant!

Hockley now on loan to Rayleigh
Gone £50 on Bosnia at 14/1 and £50 on Malta as a wild card at 40/1 though I know the singer of the Malta entry did well in 2006 or 2005 so mite be in with an outside chance.

We've got some girl band representing Irlanda tonight. Never heard of them...Why Daniel O'Donnell doesn't get the nod I have no idea :(

B'Witched? Have they reformed?

Still think this was Ireland's best entry ;)

Should think it's quite different now, much more polished in presentation. It was just so cheap when we went, got to see the Kirov ballet perform in St P's and another lot in Moscow (can't remember who now). Would recommend it to anyone though, just for the experience. The Hermitage (Winter Palace) is amazing.

I was in St Petersburg 3 years ago, although it was work I did get to see a fair bit of the city, and the Winter Palace is fantastic.

Back on topic, the only thing I watch on Eurovison is the voting and the pithy comments of Wogan who'll be missed this year. The potato headed pillock Norton won't IMO be a patch on TW.

Is Terry not doing it? :O Well, then there's no reason to watch the contest bits at all!

Incidentally, back on the Russia thing - Aeroflop are the only airline I've flown with where you get caviar as part of your standard airline meal!

Oh yeah my old man did Russian at Uni so he was over in Moscow back in late 60's early 70's, he said it was just a really surreal place!
