It's that time of year- Eurovision
« on: May 13, 2016, 01:30:46 AM »
Russia look hot favourites with a song co-written by their ex-Boy George clone - Philipp Kirkorov -the video is good, too

Ukraine

Well their song is by a Tatar and is sailing close to the wind - re Eurovision rules and politics - drawing attention to the plight and oppression of Crimean Tatars in Soviet times.

Rossiya - did not mention the origin of the lass or the meaning of the song [1944] - which was telling - as they covered other meanings

The song doesn't impress and may not make the final

I still miss Terry Wogan's predicting the votes and it will be interesting to see how many votes Ukraine give Russia

They just played the sympathy vote!! Next time the UK should have Shaker Aame representing them. Maybe he should wear some bright orange funky suit and have tears in his eyes whilst singing about life in Guatemala Bay..

Im sure he would win. But I don't think they would stoop so low as the?

I bet there are some people in the Ukrainian government having a few laughs today :laugh: Lets see if the International monetary fund threw them a few billion :money: to help stage the next show..

Farce Farce Farce...

Vietnam have been invited to sing in next years Eurovision. I hear they have a singer that suffered burns from Napalm dropped by the the USA. She will also be singing about some peace and freedom bollocks.

Lets see if she wins  :laugh:
