Eurovision Song Contest 2004

So who watched it.....?

I love watching this each year and the guy who does the commentary here in Australia is just as entertaining in his remarks and opinions as the actual show. So I missed the final bit of it, but am I right in that the chicky who looked like Zena Warrior Princess won???

I really liked the song from Malta- it kinda seemed very comical

I watched it. Xena won. They were my favourites. Some of the performances were really, really, really bad. Eurovision is scarier than I ever imagined.

I work in a busy hotel kitchen, and the night of the contest some french dude from the room situated above the kitchen was complaining that he couldn't hear it over our radio, and was leaning out of his window every five minutes LOL

I the Eurovision song contest. It's so tacky and politically biased

I couldn't believe that people were voting for that awful Turkey entry, and what was with the baldy woman on stilts during the French entry?

I have to say though, it wouldn't be the same if Terry Wogan didn't do the commentary. Some of his comments were truly hysterical

I prefer Terry Wogan too. I havent watched it for a few years and theres an Australian guy on the Australian version now. Hes funny but no where near as funny as Wogan.

I watch it solely for the voting. I love the politics. But it was played in the evening here. It used to be on at 2:30 in the afternoon. Much easier to fit into the day. I only managed the first hour. Xena did seem to be the least worst.

Aaahh, Eurovision, Cyprus gives 12 points to Greece and behold! Greece gives Cyprus 12 points!

I wonder what poor Norway did to deserve such humiliation.

My family decided that the Russian girl was the worst one and truly embarrassing for our former country.

What about the Turkish hostess and her screamingly horrible yellow dress? And did the guy host look like Spock or what?

The German guy had the worst unibrow in the history of mankind.

The French one with the scary stilt woman gave me nightmares.

I quite enjoyed the badly lip synching Bosnia and his 3 crappy dancers

What is this Eurovision ... is it a tragic rip-off of Pop Idol/American Idol?

Unfortunately no. Eurovision has been around for about 50 years. Its the original tragic Pop Idol show
