    Yes. I am a fan. Have been the last few years.

    Any bets on who will perform for them?

    Be some obscure eastern european country who wins thanks to the votes of all their neighbouring countries. The sooner this drivel is ended the better, BBC pay way too much to keep this rubbish going year after year when nobody cares about it anyway.

    No you wouldn't.
    Rejecting 'analysis by checklist' and 'skill absolutism' since Dec '09
    Rejecting 'selection deontology' since Mar '15
    'Stats' is not a synonym for 'Career Test Averages'

    i mean, the cost of european peace is a yearly singing competition. if you don't like that then that's pretty gross.

    It's not so much that an 'eastern' country is winning per se, its the fact is so predictable in voting it kinda makes the whole singing part pointless (unless you put the subtitles on and laugh at the translation of the lyrics)

    Besides, Ireland monopolised this bugger so badly they had to enter a http://youtu.be/-n--JnAwirk]turkey puppet[/URL] just to stop having to host it. Given this was an era of both Westlife and The Corrs, that's one hell of a low to scoop to. Pretty sure Bertie Ahern linked the Irish financial crises to the cost of hosting this event so often in the 90s.

    Also, its another 4 hours of Graham Norton on the BBC, taking it up to approx 168 hours for that week. He's just no Wogan...

    I watched it in the 70's, then just watched the scoring for a few years in the 80's, and then gave up altogether late 80's and haven't watched it since.

    Was at a mate's for the UFC. Watched the first half of the scoring, they put all the countries who just vote for their buddies on first. After that we turned off, nobody needs to see people voting seriously

    I always think that if the UK get more points than I've got on my driving license it's been a good year.
