Apparently its next week. Let's get this cheesy and likely disappointing party started.

Gadgie singing ours is from Hartlepool.

That party may get a bit lively when he loses - which he will -  and chins some cunt...!

 

XYY

I've still got the semi-finals to watch - pretty sure I recorded that.

This year's will have to go some way to be in the same league as Jessica Mauboy's effort from last year.

I like singing along to this one. If I get sufficiently drunk one night I might record it.

And review it in the morning.

Watched the second semi tonight. Shaping up to be a vintage year IMO, lots of camp disco stompers and pleasingly a lot of the tuneless shite hasn't made it through- my only major disappointment tonight was that the Albanian dirge made it through while the Croatian lad didn't. Even some of the slower numbers are very listenable this year. I missed the start of the Tuesday semi; the standard seemed a bit lower anyway, it didn't really get going right until the end with this instant classic, which just scraped in to the final, much to my delight:

Rather infuriatingly my mother-in-law is insisting on having her 70th birthday meal on Saturday night so I won't be able to watch it live; I plan on listening to all the songs beforehand and voting for the best ones from the restaurant, then stay off twitter until I finish watching my recording of it at 3am or whatever :) .

Edit: just flicked through the Tuesday show on YouTube, and as I thought the he sang the whole first verse out of tune. I guess they sorted his monitor out for the second verse and he pulled it out of the bag. I was rooting for him! Having listened to it again I might vote for this 10 times and the others I like once...

I didn't catch the first semi-final but did watch last night's.

The only song that I thought wasn't total shite was The Netherlands' entry.

Not normally my sort of thing, but apparently it's tipped to win. Despite having a really odd hook into the chorus which makes it sound like it doesn't really have one.

I'm hoping I missed something good from earlier in the week. I'll find out tomorrow..

I have been invited to a party every year for the past decade or so to watch the final and take the proverbial out of the entrants.

I have just learnt two things from this thread - that the final is tonight and that I have not been invited to the party.

Oh, I am a bit shocked. That will teach me for voting for Brexit and being immune to TDS.

Was not everyone supposed to be boycotting it because it was in Israel and therefore serving the international Zionist conspiracy or some such bollox .

I heard on the radio that the Israel feed for one of the semi-finals was hijacked towards the end and overlaid with explosion footage.

Here it just terminated early.
