It's that time of year again. Countries scour the dregs of their society for the biggest freaks, arm them with microphones and the entire world watches the carnage unfold.

The favourites this year are Russia. Though there are strong contenders from Australia and France. The UK entry is pretty decent and I'm confident we won't finish in the bottom three. It starts tonight at 8pm GMT.

I will be honouring this occasion by getting drunk and laughing lots. Who's with me?!

The UK entry is pretty decent and I'm confident we won't finish in the bottom three.We could revive the Beatles and have them duet with an also revived Freddie Mercury led Queen while the Spice Girls dance about singing about girl power and we'd still come in the bottom three. Europe fucking hates Britain, and Brexit isn't exactly going to have thawed relations. Though admittedly last year's Birdseye Potato Waffles cover was godawful so we don't help ourselves.

I'll be watching! Any spooty or weird songs to look out for?

Brexit

I know this isn't exactly the thread for this, but I only recently found out that this word exists and it immediately shot to the top of my "fuck that stupid word it is awful" list. Whoever came up with that should be banned from humanity. My guess is The Sun.

This year's UK entry is frickin' awful, I can't stand it. I actually preferred last year's at least it was a bit different. I haven't actually heard any of the other entries this year, I want them all to be fresh when I hear them tonight.

Also, if Australia really wanted to win, they'd have stuck gay icon Kylie Minogue on the stage. Do you KNOW how many gays vote in Eurovision? Lots.

This is what we should've done to begin with. Then Belgium rejoins the fold so we can play the European cup as well. Then we take Spain, to pay back for the war, and France for backstabbing us in another way. Then we take Scandanavia, and Denmark, who would've been subjugated anyway if not for us in 1800. Then we pay a nice visit across the canal.

"The voting was biased, it's clear", Russian state TV commentators say. "Burning disappointment".

"Sergey was the best for us anyway".Russia as a nation gets seriously pissed off about Eurovision. Expect a statement from Putin soon too :hahaha:

I think this about sums it up:

This is why nobody cares about this festival. Timberlake was wrong. Awful songs win this festival, so they all make awful songs.I care about it, it's great. The voting is irrelevant, it's all about the comedy songs. Lighten up old chap!

The parody song was fun. The rest was just trout. :colbert: LET ME SALT THIS OUT.

To be fair, the Netherlands came second in 2014. With a country and western song. Which promptly got copied without fail by at least one country since then (it was a very good song).

Honestly, I watch Eurovision for the silly frivolity of it all, and its brilliant. I just watched it with all my friends from the University's LGBT society and had a riot. "SMURF OFF AUSTRALIA" basically became a rallying cry, and that new public voting was super-tense.

The surprise stand-out was France in 6th. They've achieved their highest placing since 2002, and they've done crap until this year. The Netherlands came a respectable 11th with a good country song, and heck Belgium put in a decent showing.

There will always be political voting, that much is definite, though I like how the voting has become more transparent. The splitting of the jury and public vote was a very clever move. Eurovision is Eurovision. It will always be the best worst television show ever.

But seriously UK, Lithuania was our favourite? The hell!?

This Eurovision thread needs gaying up. So, here's my rundown of the bangable guys of Eurovision. Hungary singer and French singer can get it, and so can the guitarist standing on the left side of the screen from the Netherlands singer, the bald one (the guitarist is bald, not the singer). Sweden singer from last year who's presenting this year can get it too, as long as he doesn't do that creepy-arse smile. Timberlake's still bangworthy, although that performance was meh at best.

Like Formy says, we were at an AWESOME Eurovision barbecue party. Seriously, it was one of the best evenings EVER.

Operation Keep Mother Away was successful. I'm also a recovered Eurovision Addict myself. Your mind just.....feeels better when all you have to hear is "third from the bottom" on the radio news.

Woo, Australia represent! I just heard SBS is going to put together an Asiavision possibly next year which could prove to be incredibly funny. :)

Watched this the other day, not a fan of the winner at all. Thought her song was average to poor. Other countries did much, much better.

Yeah I wasn't a fan of Ukraine's song, either. Although she was singing about her dead grandmother so respect to her for that - must have been very emotional for her belting that out to a worldwide audience.

Also I got completely smashed thanks to Australia - I had to have a shot every time that they got 12 points :D

I hosted a ESC party with 17 attendees on the night of the finals. We all wrote down our top three when voting ended and Ukraine was not mentioned once. NOT ONCE! :lol:

My favorites were Bulgaria and Russia. :ffvising:

I LOVED Bulgaria's entry. Great song, and those dance moves were sweet. The light-up outfit and the enormous earring made it all seem suitably zany and Eurovisiony.
