It's Eurovision... [May. 24th, 2008|08:13 pm]
The Love Bug
... our yearly fix of Europop trash crap!

Now, usually we do the red button feature so that we get the english translation of the song lyrics, but this year there seems to be this extremely camp guy called Boogaloo Stu who keeps popping up on screen to give us factoids about the country that’s performing.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t the only reason to watch the Eurovision to listen to Terry Wogan getting more and more pissed as the evening progresses? So why on earth would I want to see some cabaret performer spoiling the view and drowning out our Terry?

Back to standard subtitles, methinks.

Anyway, we’re song 2, and we’re on now apparently! Good luck, Andy!

(although I ain’t holding my breath on this one!)

Absolutely! Unfortunately dur to illness yesterday both Nic and I couldn't watch it live, so we Sky+'d it.

Can't say I'm overly surprised about the result tho, as I think the days of us (or indeed any of the 'Big 4' European counties that actually pay for the contest!) winning it are long gone.

Oh well, always next year I suppose - least it wasn't another nul points!
