    Hmm, well done Jess, I quite like that song. The whole thing is very kitsch, yet strangely watchable, if only to laugh at some of the stuff they wear! <IMG SRC="eek.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    It's strange how we can sit and know who is voting for who.

    Well that was a good laugh. Some really fit birds this year, the usual political voting (Cyprus-Greece, et al), the usual sarcastic commentary, political point scoring by the Israeli vote spokeswoman, an absolutely appalling song from Greece, bizarre short clips between songs and a wooden couple presenting the event. All in all well worth it! Long live the Euro Fest!

    P.S. Still, it takes a lot of liking to get 30,000 Germans watching it live from the main square <IMG SRC="eek.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    I wanted Malta to win <IMG SRC="frown.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">
    The Austrian entry (yum) and the transvestites were the highlights of the show for me though!

    You gotta love Terry Wogan's commentary though.

    Weren't they the only two countries whose performers played their own instruments?
    I voted for Belgium, but I thought about voting for Estonia.

    How do they choose who goes forward to represent the country anyway? Do the acts have to be unsigned?
    Because Gina G released her single before she entered, didn't she?

    It's all about the songwriters rather than the performers, any British band or singer could have done it, as long as the songwriter had never been "used" before.

    Poor old Terry gave up on them after the first few votes - about it not being about the music in the slightest, how else could greece have got points, unless there are some sarcastic punters out there.

    My favourite was the Macedonian entry, probably just didnt do as well as it wasnt in english, shame really, it should be about the style of singing and general performance, but it's great to see the smaller European countries getting a chance for a little piece of the Eurovision pie, even if it almost killed Estonia's economy. <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    No disrespect to Jessica Garlick, but why can't we find anything better than that then?
    You would've thought that the people who organised it should've learnt by now! <IMG SRC="tongue.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">
