Nothing more fitting than starting a community on good European music off with the good old crappy cheesebag Eurovision, is there? Gotta love it. I don't usually look into it too much beforehand, because half the fun is the "surprise" of the desperate attempts of various countries to win this darn thing, but I doubly enjoy the occasional good band in between. Is there anything exciting going in this year?

I haven't seen Gipsy.cz live yet and from the small bit of the song I've heard the lyrics are awful, but with the current gipsy/balkan music hype they might actually have a chance to not fail miserable in the semis. With a good live show they might even place well. Outside of Eurovisionland a somewhat disappointing song from an otherwise quite good gipsy hop group.

Don't really know that many other contributions. As for the given dreadful, not even Dita von Teese will be able to save Germany, but at least there'll be something for the eyes. France will be difficult, great singer (obviously), not really a eurovision song though (and I doubt many of her fans will watch). England will be my loo break, have actually heard neither the song nor the singer, but after having to sit through Cats once I'm sufficiently prejudiced against Andrew Lloyd-Webber to flee.

Anyone have any favorites from the last years (either awful, cheesy or actually good)?

i'm actually totally looking forward to eurovision! i've been following it for ten years and there's nothing more fun than cheering on and point fingers at and facepalm, in the sofa, with good company!

i think my winning favourite for this year is Norway, with an awesomely catchy and original song as well as a cute boy performing :D that said, finland's song is an earworm as well... i haven't checked really checked anything else, half the fun is the surprise :D

but i think my favourite of all eurovision entries since i started watching, was The Worrying Kind by The Ark (Sweden) in 2007 :D <3

do i understand correctly that dita von teese will enter for germany? O.o

yeah, not to mention that when the finale comes on, they use the same recordings from the semis >.< you can easily tell, every single move is identical <.<

it's got violins in it and that alone is a win :D

oh, i see. haha, ohdeargod. that happens way too often, the pretty female singer halfway undresses during the song to get more votes (from the men).

totally <3 do you know the rest of their stuff? i'm contemplating what band i should promote first in here, and i'm torn between The Ark and Uniklubi (finnish band that sing in finnish). :)
