    The UK is at the highest place it's been in a long time (despite having such a bad song).

    EDIT: Norway won with 387 points.

    Well, once again, we got a decent winner. Not my favourite song of this year's contest, but damn good anyway. To boot, for once I don't have to deal with sore loser whining about the giant Balkan conspiracy scheme.

    Next year Rick Ashley needs to start with a new 8bit version of Never Gonna Give You Up. Anonymous has to strike. 12 points per country. GO GO GO!

    The new voting system certainly makes it far fairer than it was previously.

    Thank you, Norway, for delivering fun(n)ky aftershow coverage in your native language.

    Good **** this year. Higher overall quality than we usually get. Shame the winning song/singer was a tuneless pile of wank.

    Are you guys watching the press conference? Did you just catch what the Norwegian guy had to say about the gay parade and what happened to it? I'm seriously gutted now, and I feel like verbally abusing him for some time to come.

    He basically questioned whether it was the right moment to have that protest. Because hey, the day of Eurovision surely is the most inappropriate time to hold a pro-gay rally. What an idiot. It really bugs me, especially how the police actions against the demonstration yesterday are treated as a non-issue.

    Well they did forbid the protest ... and that rarely goes well in 'civilized' countries, so it's not exactly a surprise that stuff happened in Moscow.

    I see. It would raise the fun factor though if you wouldn't restrict yourself to verbal abuse. Just beat him upon the head with a dildo.

    I want to post strong insults towards the event, the contestants, the audience and anyone associated with the eurovision...

    nah ... the contest isn't worth the effort of posting insults.
    Besides in some ways tv-shows like Popstar/Holland's got talent/etc. are even worse then this ;)

    Se sou chuva és aguarela - If I’m rain you’re watercolour
    Se sou sal és branca areia - I’f I’m the salt you’re white sand
    Se sou mar és maré-cheia - If I’m sea you’re high tide
    Se sou céu és nuvem nele - If I’m sky you’re cloud on him
    Se sou estrela és de encantar - If I’m star you’re enchanting
    Se sou noite és luz para ela - If I’m night you’re light on it
    Se sou dia és o luar - If I’m day you’re the moonlight

    Sou a voz do coração - I’m the voice of the heart
    Numa carta aberta ao mundo - In an open letter to the world
    Sou o espelho d’emoção - I’m the mirror of emotion
    Do teu olhar profundo - Of your deep look.
    Sou um todo - I’m a whole
    Num instante - In an instant
    Corpo dado - Given body
    Em jeito amante – In a lover manner
    Sou o tempo que não passa - I’m the time that doesn’t pass
    Quando a saudade - When the lonely feeling
    Me abraça - embraces me

    Beija o mar o vento e a lua - Kiss the sea, the wind and the moon.
    Sou um sol - I’m a sun
    Em neve nua – In naked snow
    Em todas as ruas do amor - In all streets of love
    Serás meu e eu serei tua - You’ll be mine and I’ll be yours.
