    Eurovision 2015....and more



    Australia taking part this year? That is something really new. Maybe we see Canada next year? I mean Celine Dione already won it for them in 1988.....in the name of Switzerland of course :). I guess because of the interest it generates and the majority of the population is related mostly to European countries. Im not too familiar with the demographics but it seems like it.

    Thanks Maleth...since Italy didn't compete for years I didn't keep up with it much. I'm more of a San Remo girl. That's not to say that I like most of the offerings there, either.

    ?????

    What Happened?

    Italy is back in Eurovision?



    Well personally I voted Lordi in the past, and I enjoy it much,

    this year I might vote 'Punks not dead' you can guess who


    Although I believe that Ukraine or Hungary might win,
    ΟΘΕΝ ΑΙΔΩΣ OY EINAI
    ΑΤΗ ΛΑΜΒΑΝΕΙΝ ΑΥΤΟΙΣ
    ΥΒΡΙΣ ΓΕΝΝΑΤΑΙ
    ΝΕΜΕΣΙΣ ΚΑΙ ΤΙΣΗ ΑΚΟΛΟΥΘΟΥΣΙ ΔΕ

    When there is no shame
    Divine blindness conquers them
    Hybris (abuse, opprombium) is born
    Nemesis and punishment follows.

    Εχε υπομονη Ηρωα
    Η τιμωρια δεν αργει.

    Well the Eurovision is a San Remo creation . I am still sussing out all the songs, and I think im getting close to a favourite. My favourites do not mean much as they usually never win haha.

    From what I can see on the comments, people think the voting is usually for allied or neighboring countries. Is that true? That would be a shame.

    Favourite ballad:- Russia - Million voices (of course they have to be very careful not to get two men together in video because they will get arrested for promoting homosexuality according to Putin's gay propoganda laws .... but two women is ok, will not end you up in jail. Great song never the less.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jBVY7Glcd84

    Favourite Dance:- Sweden - Heroes

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZhfLQrw3Sss

    Most talented:- Italy - Grande Amore

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w1f6o1HQBvg

    Most refreshing:- UK - Still in love with you

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eniaB0xchTY (somehow reminds me of 'On again Off again Malta's entry in 2004 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hbKBo7QhwcI

    Over all favourite:- Belgium

    Yes its very obvious neighbors vote for each other, most obvious are Spain and Portugal, Greece and Cyprus, Scandinavian countries and believe it or not BALKAN countries like ALBANIA GIVING 12 POINTS TO SERBIA But in all fairness the best songs always do prevail. Another thing is the general taste for a particular genre of music is different in all regions, so there are always a couple that seem to go down well across the board.

    yeah

    the 4 12 points of Scans
    the 5 12 of ex-Yugoslavia
    and the 6-9 of ex-Ussr

    !!!!!!


    and strangely at most countries, half points are by people votes, 1 E in Greece
    and other Half from a comittee!!!!!!!!!
    no it is strange,
    since the year with the lowest comittees and max of voting
    the most free Eurovision, was won, by who?
    BY THE PEOPLE, and not by the 'comittee'

    Athens 2006 The most Free Eurovision, with less comittee votes, what Europeans hear that year,
    away from Woman legs and t***, and pretty boys with slim characteristics




    Next year Eurovision officers forced a non rock-metal policy, and most countries votes were 50% by a 'comittee'
    isn't that strange?
    but after realize and start to open mind,
    and allowed the Austrain to finals, even win!!!
    that is why I will vote Finland this year again!!!!
    Punks not dead

    Lordi song was a good one (except for the masks). I think it was much better then this years, although it might get a good number of 'sympathy' votes (so to speak)

    yes Lordi song was good,
    but poor as metal, design for Eurovision,
    this year Finland song is the first Punk song ever been in Eurovision,
    but Punk musigue runs for more than 2 decades Europe, and eveb travel to USA,
    so even if late, I believe a Punk song must win once,
    and offcourse not British
    since both movements start from there, but never went to a Eurovision contest, with that flag.
    although in Britain, and generally in Europe, climb the charts and even broke the limits sometimes,

    Disco music had its best in Eurovision, especially with 1979 Germany,
    It was like a boney M at their best, and even better

    I used to enjoy some punk, sex pistols were ok but Adam and the ants were my favourite punk group. It would not be my choice, but if Lordi were able to win, I have no doubt that a punk song can do it too. Eurovision is quite unpredictable these days and has become 'bi polar'. I think its good.

    All I got out of these last bits is that Yetos doesn't want to look at women's legs and pretty boys singing.

    Speak for yourself, Yetos. I'm sure plenty of people want to look at both...heck, even I like to look at pretty boys singing...it's better than looking at ugly boys singing.

    Ed. Sorry, just good humored teasing. No insult intended.

    oups I got caught!!!!
    Yes I like monsters!!!!!!

    it is a show, ok, a show must satisfy both, eyes and hears,
    nice t*ts is a good view,
    but is a song contest, not a show contest, so it must please my ears, not my eyes,
    anyway, many times in Eurovision the stylistic costumes were such .... that many cabaret women would envy
    or the dancers had such muscles, that Arnold Schwarzenegger would fenvy.

    anyway Russia has a fantastic song,

    it is a show, ok, a show must satisfy both, eyes and hears,
    nice t*ts is a good view,
    but is a song contest, not a show contest, so it must please my ears, not my eyes,
    relax take a deeeeeeeeeeep breath and close your eyes :)

    anyway to go more with Statistics.

    many famous, and I mean famous, did not manage to win the contest,

    I think the artist with the most perfomances was a woman from Malta, or Andora in the decades of 70's
    a tremendous singer, with tremendous abilities in vocals, little bit fat, if I remember correct.

    anyway, now days people prefer to sing in national language or English,

    this is from ESC (European Song Contast) Mother of Eurovision,
    at that time people prefer to sing in Francais or Italian




    France Gall

    I think you mean Chiara, quite obese but sweet. She came second and third, Malta will never win, came second twice and third twice, one of them should merited a win for sure, at least we won juniour euro festival last year.
