Eurovision SF1 tonight

I just realized that I have tickets to see Fiddler on the Roof the night of the finals. Never been a big Eurovision follower anyway.

I'm totally watching. Can't wait to see Iceland's entry.

Not a great Eurovision year when the UK entry pisses all over every song in the first SF

thank god for the mad Icelandic one

I will be watching Thursday's when the NL are up.

I totes predicted that we were gonna win this thing maybe 6 or 8 weeks ago already.


The uk song is worse than the worst of the crap ones last night. 

I saw Fiddler on the Roof last week, PP. Did you see it at the Playhouse?  What did you think?

The UK song is just generic blandness. Like eating plain cooked pasta. No sauce, no meat, no spices. Yuck. I quite like his voice tho, and he'll score points with that, but it's a bit of a shame that you've sent him away with a really sh1t song.

Am seeing it this Saturday, Badman. Got tickets before I realized that it's Eurovision night--not that I would have changed plans anyway.

Am I in for a treat?

the UK's song is terrible as usual (although I can remember the chorus of it) but I was surprised by the utter shite on offer last night. Terrible songs and even the half-decent ones (e.g. Czech Republic) were really badly performed.

maybe they're saving all the good ones for Thursday.

Still backing Iceland to win, they have a Lordi-like 'fuck you' attitude which is fab

Thursday has NL, Russia, Italy, Switzerland. Lots of good stuff.

I quite like the happy-clappy song from Spain. Italy is cool as well. Do not like Iceland because it's just another gimmicky act.

PP I have heard it is very good, someone in work recommended I sell a kidney to get a ticket

I am at the ballet on Saturday night :(

booked before we realised it was eurovison, I should be home before they finish calling all the countries

Soz Tricky the Netherlands one is really fucking boring

SF2 was much better though - liked Sweden, Switzerland, North Macedonia and Azerbaijan


I can confirm that Fiddler on the Roof is very good. Badders got tickets as a surprise and it was fantastic.
