Good old political voting at its best. France, UK and Germany should stop funding and allow these so called ' European' nations to run the show themselves. Honestly are even half of these countries in Europe ?

As soon as Terry Wogan stops, i will stop. His comments make it somewhat bearable but im sure he's had enough now.

I'm very proud of Israel.

This year (for a change) we sent a really great song.
The singer was Boaz Mauda who was this year's winner of Israeli Idol.

He did a great job and we came in 9th - which is fine in my book.

Personally, I was rooting for Romania, Norway, Poland and Portugal - however they were all excellent songs - so naturally they didn't stand a chance!

Besides, the Eurovision is no longer pan-European. It seems like the contest was dominated by the eastern bloc countries which left out the western European and Scandinavian countries - so Russia's win wasn't a surprise. There are so many new "splinter" countries that were formed after the breakup of the Soviet Union and Yugoslavia, it was obvious that one of the Eastern bloc countries was going to win.

Anyway, as I said, Boaz did us proud!

Note:
Congratulations to Ireland for sending the absolute WORST song ever entered into the contest. They made a mockery of the contest and the "booos" that they received in the semi-final were too kind to them. Shame on you Ireland! For a country with the most Eurovision wins you really dropped the ball this time! Where's Johnny Logan when you need him?

As a public service, and for those of you who sat whistfully thinking of ESC gone by, I'm happy to post a brief video history of all the Eurovision winners from 1956 till last year. It's sad to see how it's all gone to hell.....

ENJOY!!

Part 1

To be fair, the voting makes a mockery of the whole contest. Ireland could send u2 and Britain could send Paul Mcartney and we would still be no closer to winning the contest.

That's very true.

However, if Ireland didn't intend to take the contest seriously then they shouldn't have gone.

As it is, I have a feeling that a lot of countries will be dropping out of the ESC because it's just not worth all the trouble if the voting only goes one way.

And AchtungBono, sending good songs is so not the point of Eurovision. UK came stone motherless last and their song was good. It's how bad your hair cut is that wins Eurovision (ie Russia).

You know something? I totally agree with you!

Although after this year I guess it's also the height of the mini skirt that counts....

The Eurovision song contest hasn't been about decent music since the 60's...too many power ballads and nonsense...that said still oddly loveable nonsense, but I am beggining to bore of it.

Now if we had Bell X1 (for Ireland, U2 too obvious and would be considered cheating:wink), Air (France), Rammstein (Germany), Bjork (Iceland), Alphabeat (Denmark), Gogol Bordello (Ukraine) etc that would be an excellent contest.
