Commiserations to our dear Nordies, null points for the truly dismal UK entry.

I think Iceland would have won it last year. I watched their 1997 effort at Eurov in Dublin and it was an astonishing performance, though it  hardly got any points, way ahead of its time.

The UK song was totally crap  but can't help feeling that  the total boycott was also an Asterix inspired Euro 'Merde' to the British.

Same thing happened after the Iraq invasion.

Wonít be long until Scotland is in it anyway.

I thought Ireland had made it but obviously was wrong. I never understood why we donít enter a song showing off our traditional instruments and music. Europe goes mad for Irish  music, and even if you never win, at least youíre showcasing your national music and sound, staying true to yourself. Instead of the bollix we send to it. Sure itís nothing more than a hideous karaoke nowadays.

Said the same last night. In fact all nations should have to produce a song in their native language with traditional instruments. Ireland would give it a rare blast alright but letís face it, Ireland donít want to win it as it is too expensive to run!

The winners from 1995 and 1996, Europeans would lap that stuff right up

Best song won. There is a snobbery that a rock/punk song can't be any good. That's it. Gimmicks and tricks will only get you so far. Ireland and UK are trying to hard to fit in. Be yourself, do the style you are best at. If the UK's foreign policy is not liked and affecting their Eurovision results, what the he'll is going on with Israel who do well annually and won the competition 3 years ago?

European guilt complex.

UK talking about doing a dustin the turkey type parody but I thought they'd been doing that for years.

Roll out Bucks Fizz I say.

Didnít Israel win because they had the freak act?, ie. a big fat lesbian dressed like a clown. Usually the freakiest weirdo wins.

The skirt ripping would piss off the feminists/millennials/politically correct/whingy bastards these days though.

Even more reason to bring it back then!

Ukraine the clear favourites this year (no need to guess why) one lyric in the song "I'll always find my way home even if all the roads are destroyed"
