    I am feeling schadenfreude for the failure of Germanys No-Angels. They were the first on tv casted 'band' here and the least we need is eurovision induced delusions of grandeur.

    I skipped it this year completely and just now learned that this was the German entry. And I immediately went "oh, it's the song that annoys me every time it's on the radio because it's so unbelievably boring". So yeah, even though I can't compare it to the rest of the field I'm going to slap a "a well deserved last place" on it. :p

    Don't forget the British (getting used to it yet?) and the Polish are officially ranked below even though all three countries have the same score, because zeh Germans got twelve points once.

    I guess the brits lost cause it was a bit too 'normal' for a Eurovision-contest ?

    I wonder if the former yugoslavia countries dared to vote for each other ...

    No you're not the only one. However Israel probably is in for the same reason it gets do do stuff only it is allowed to do ...

    I'd willing to bet most of them didn't, but one of the singers is originally from Bulgaria.

    The reason why non-European countries are included in the contest is because it's not a contest between artists (or in some cases, "artists") of European countries, but of musicians of countries with TV and radio stations that are organized in the European Broadcasting Union.

    It's all relative.

    Yes, yes I do. I personally detest black metal and a lot of what it stands for.

    Yeah, within black metal, it's the foremost country. But that's frankly not saying much.

    Even before the whole war thing, the UK didn't really care about Eurovision. One of the reasons, as has been spotted in this thread, why we don't exactly care who we send to it. It's basically our night to "laugh at the continentals".

    Quite frankly, I question the sanity and professionalism of anyone willing to compete in the Eurovision.

    How can you enter a competition when your placement in the results isn't based upon your effort as an artist/musician, but upon which countries your country is friends with.

    Because we all know Israel and the Baltic states are terribly good friends with Russia.

    I'm glad to be a continental then. That gives me three hundred and sixty five days to laugh about the islanders this year. I got an extra kick out of your post.
    Oh man, your head must be like a kaleidoscope of crazy thoughts. So beautiful.

    Sorry to butt in but I was just wondering what exactly Black Metal stands for, from your perspective.

    War thing? As in World War Two? That ended ten years before Eurovision began.

    Wrong War :)

    I meant the Iraq War. The voting numbers for the UK dropped like a stone after we started dropping bombs.
