We had wine and lemon drizzle cake along with our Eurovision, so this might not be entirely coherent... *g*

Well, who didn't see that coming, then? Sir Terence of Wogan had a few choice words about that, didn't he? (Was it just me who thought he was hinting at his stepping down from Eurovision? That'll be a sad day.) Don't get me wrong, we like Dima in this house, him and his mullet, but well...

Dad doesn't usually watch Eurovision, so he wasn't quite prepared for the voting. Quoth he: "I didn't expect him [The United Kingdom] to win, but I wasn't expecting them to get shat on from a great height either!"

I can't get over Ireland giving twelve points to Latvia! Oh, country I got half my genes from, never change!

Oh, and [livejournal.com profile] jamaisneutral, can you tell me who that gorgeous lady giving the Belgian voting was? We think she was a bit of a Freema lookylikey :D

(Speaking of things Who, anyone see the trailer that played out after the Euro-hoopla? Oooh...)

The story so far:

Iceland kicked arse, the Swedish singer needs to step away from the plastic surgeon, Lithuania needs to rethink its national stance on teenage poetry and the Albanian singer is amazing and deserves to do well.

ETA: Oh god, is it just me that thought the guy singing for Switzerland (in Italian!) was out of tune all the way through? Speaking of off key, I lost the will to live during the czech Republic, so thank heavens for Latvia! Is Talk Like A Pirate day a national holiday in Latvia or something?!

ETA 2: ...and Croatia gives us the world's oldest rapper. They deserve the points for the gramophone scratching!

I think I've gone wrong... I liked Bulgaria...

Oh My GOD! Thank you Denmark! This is terrific! :D

ETA 3: The Georgian quick change routine was amazing, but I think I fell asleep during Hungary.

I approve of Malta's song, and I shall be eloping to California with their singer!

I shall say nothing about Cyprus, except that having the translation up has induced a bit of feminist rage... because of course all us women have going for us are our looks! *calm*

ETA 4: Portugal's given me goosebumps!

SON OF THE SON OF THE REVENGE OF ZOMBIE ETA: Aww, no Malta? Still, two of my picks this time - Denmark and Portugal :D And now onward to Saturday... must remember to get some wine in *g*

[livejournal.com profile] jamaisneutral, no harm to you, but if Belgium make it to the final, I'll be deeply surprised...

ETA: Andorra might look like Godspell vomited all over Moulin Rouge, but it's rather funky...

ETA 2: HUP HOLLAND HUP! We have finally achieved decent music!

ETA 3: Oh, Dima! Holy hell, I loved it. Good old Russia! Mum (Who up until then had been all for Andy) has just switched her allegiance. Although I think that might have a lot to do with Eugeni Pluschenko, of whom she has always been a big fan! *g*

Final Headdesky ETA: Dammit, of my picks, only Russia went through. And Dustin's been sent packing. *lesigh*

Andy Abraham is going to Eurovision for the UK! I admit there was a large amount of cheering in the Moose household (me and mum) when the result was announced!

WE'RE SENDING A GOOD SONG! :D

Ireland are sending Dustin the Turkey to Eurovision! *sniggers*

Also, Marija was on the celeb panel for the Irish Eurosong (alongside Dana and *spit* Louis Walsh *spit*) and mum goes "Who's he?" *headdesk*

Because [livejournal.com profile] jamaisneutral has never forgiven me for falling asleep during Eurovision a couple of years ago, I did penance tonight, in the form of the Semi finals. I present to you:

The bewildered outsiders guide to the Eurovision Semifinal )

Oh, and Brian Kennedy? Screw you, you wishy-washy-giving-us-bisexuals-a-bad-name-namby-pamby-stuck-up-prick. Johnny Logan died for your sins, bitch. And screw you Daz Sampson and your blatant sucking up to all and sundry and your shitty 'ver kids are alright if you give them a chance' "rap". Until Sunday I am fucking Finnish, and there's nothing you can do to stop me.

Lordi, we who are about to rock, headbang in your honour!
