    Latvia had the pirate song "with a hi hi hi and a hey hey hey, pirates are all we can be"


    Yea.... it is funnier than 90% of comedy on TV.

    FIX!!!!! it's all corrupted, and i think something needs to be done about the way the voting is decided.

    That's half the fun - terrible songs, good songs.. it doesn't affect the voting in the slightest

    It's all about politics. I'm not saying ours was brilliant, but how comes Spain beat us xD ?! We get (hardly) no votes, yet we are (or our language) is obviously needed, as 95% sign in English! Even the French! Anyway, Britain's Got More Talent was better anyway, so didn't watch much, except Iceland (Which I liked)


    (no racism intended - it's is known the French pride themselves on their language)

    Life is good. Simples. Cccchhhhh.

    Yep. What a great continent we live in, a contest about music and all the voting is political

    How many really vote for thee songs they like? xD Most countrys do friends-voting, which is why we almost didn't compete at all this year

    I agree entirely with what Wogan was saying at the end. Should we bother anymore? This is no longer a song contest.

    Now don't call me a bad loser, but I seriously believe the BBC should pull out of Eurovision. Sure it would possibly collapse (the BBC is one of, if not the, largest TV company contributing to it) but I certainly wouldn't care. Hell maybe even the TV licence would go down. The BBC news report earlier on was yet another piece of proof that this is a waste of time - people have studied the 'contest' for a while, and can correctly predict the results with clever computer programs. In fact, even Terry can do it. It is impossible for the UK (and many other countries) to win. It doesn't matter what song we have, or how good it is, we cannot win. I definately wouldn't be sorry to see this go. Sure it would be the end of an era (of Wogan and Eurovision), but it would be ending of no fault of our own.

    Lol. You could do most of the voting before the songs, it makes no real difference. There was a lot of former USSR satellite states through to the finals this year so Russia were on for the win.

    TBF he has said that for about the last 4 years. This is nothing new, it was just worse than usual this year.

    So true, our commentators was sitting and telling us which country was going to get the 12 points almost all the time
