Eurovision predictions:

Postby Square12 » Sat May 18, 2013 7:50 pm

Ok so what are your predictions for the Eurovision voting?
Just to explain for those of you who have never seen the Eurovision Song Contest, it is basically an ingenious way to prevent world war 3 by letting all the European countries who officially hate each other, vent their frustrations on an annual basis by deliberately not giving their rivals any points. Oh and before this political popularity contest there is some sort of amateurish musical warm up act for a few hours.
Now some of the more obvious scenarios include: Scandinavian countries voting for each other, likewise former soviets, Spain and Portugal usually help each other out as do Germany, Switzerland and Austria. Surprisingly France often manages to get some points and Ireland inevitably win, because they get every one else drunk and give them the wrong number to vote for in countries that have a telephone voting system.
If you can fill the unforgiving minute,
With sixty seconds worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a man my son.

Very neatly summed up Square. :lol:

I have absolutely no predictions for this as I haven't heard any of the other entries yet (including ours). However, I am already wishing for the return of 'Lordi'. ;)

Oh come on we all know the actual music is largely irrelevant as half the time the singer is either not from the country they represent or not singing in their own language. Justin lee Collins tried to get in ferchrissakes!
