Eurovision And Politics

Published by at 10:36 am under Blog,Music

Dustin the TurkeyI have seriously had enough of Europolitics. I have immersed myself in it far too much over the past few days, more so than I would have expected or intended.

So, this evening, I am going to switch off my brain, open a few cans of beer and settle in to watch the semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest.

I truly love it. It’s stupid, it’s over the top, the music is generally poor and the presenters are invariable an embarrassment. What’s not to love?

Linda Kavanagh in PantoDustin will be up 11th and I may have to go for a bathroom break at that point. Needless to say, sending Dervish, Brian Kennedy, the small odd brother and sister who were clearly a little too close, that awful Chris Doran (remember that?) have not worked for us in recent years, but sending a loudmouth bird (not Linda Kavanagh) to represent us can only end in disaster. My prediction is that we won’t even get to the final, which will, admittedly, be a pity. Watching the painfully inevitable voting at the end of the night is (I say unashamedly) very exciting.

This year, I haven’t had the opportunity to listen to all the songs prior to the event, so I will be making my mind up at the same time as everyone else. Bookies have Russia as favourite to win, so rather than cause us further misery by posting up Dustin’s video, here’s Dima Bilan with Believing.

StumbleUpon It!

    Go on Dustin! He could do it, although he’s in the more difficult semi with all the bloc voting countries, so hopefully they’ll get the joke!

    Dustin’s gonna fail, I’d love if he offends some tiny little country also but probably wont happen.

    I hate how everyone in Ireland gets obsessed about the eurovision, not me, no way.

    …I’ve just thought of a eurovision related blog idea!
