Eurovision song Contest 2019

It's the time of year again!

Personally I can't stand it because for some time it's been a political pissing contest with jurors ignoring the music and concentrating on the country.

It was only because of the outstanding quality of the song by this year's host that there was no escaping the final result.

So hopefully this year the only thing to be watched will be the singing and the only thing to hear will be the music instead of any form of political protest from placard to stage invasion.

Or terrorist attack.

After all the venue this year is Tel Aviv Tues to Sat this coming week.

I strongly suspect there will be nothing significant that takes place because the target of opportunity will be adults protected by the IDF in one form of another.

That's not the ideal target for cowardly SOB's. They much prefer the innocent just going about their everyday lives.

Re: Eurovision song Contest 2019

For a few years now itís just been about countries voting for their neighbors, regardless of the quality of the song, they have altered the voting from last time I think, but I didnít notice any difference,

I gave up on it years ago, I'm afraid.

Not only did I find most of the songs boring, but the blatant politics made such a mockery of the whole thing, I considered it a pointless exercise.

Let's face it, most of the winning songs melted away into oblivion shortly afterwards, so I rest my case.

Re: Eurovision song Contest 2019

... bit of a laugh innit?

If it puts countries like latvia & lithuania on the map, then I'm all for it.

They do of course know that Gran Britannia does music par excellence.

It would be interesting to know how many British songs and songs by British singers/groups are bought in the Eastern European countries, Top Ten stuff, I mean, compared with indigenous songs.
