Catch-up with Eurovision

For anyone who feels the need… :upside_down_face:

I was half watching last night and suddenly thought the song I could hear was pretty bad. I looked up from my iPad and it was the UK. Perfectly good singer but rubbish song. I’m not surprised the UK came last. France had a plus size ballet dancer who seemed to have nothing to do with the singer and Australia had flying on wires.

I blame Nigel Farage.

If he had his way, we (british) wouldn’t have to subject ourselves to this humiliation every year :joy::joy::joy:

Ah, i see now where all the confusion has arisen - it was all about leaving Eurovision, not the EU!!! :wink:

Easy to confuse the two after all, what with the annual humiliation that is Eurovision.

I mean, how the **** is it possible to come LAST ???

Come back Sir Cliff, all is forgiven !

Visually the Australian on the high bendy pole was magnificent … certainly put Madonna to shame! I can’t remember any of the songs. It’s all image these days.

Go on Simon, spill the haricots.

Lol :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: I don’t think so Peter - I would risk unleashing the Wrath of Khan… :wink:

I didn’t watch it live this year but I love Madonna and wanted to see her performance…my first thought was…she’s been sabotaged by the sound system…!

Anyway she’s released this version on her twitter account now…x :slight_smile:

It is a revolution where we support one another regardless of race, religion, or gender.
A revolution that promotes peace and demands equality.
I don’t accept injustice. And neither should you.
I invite you all to join my Revolution of Love!

We were watching a horror film…when it finished Madonna was just starting to murder “Like a Prayer”. Think the twitter version has been pitch corrected. Take a lot more than that to make my voice sound anything other than flat mind you!
