The Eurovision 2012 thread

245 posts in this topic

Okay, hopefully now that everyone has blown off enough steam over the trivial picture / politics / cats / pensions threads :doh:, we can get back to what this forum should really be about; music.

So, the rehearsals started last night in Azerbaijan (I kid you not), but the real stuff does not really start until the semi-finals on 22nd / 24th May, with the Grand Final on Saturday 26th May starting at 8pm.

So who is going to come away victorious this year and does Engelbert Humperdinck stand a chance :dunno:.

Serbia has all the right ingredients... Iceland has very good chance. Ukraine has the catchiest song but too generic and no chance due to political reasons.

Sweden looks like favourite but too dance-y to win, I reckon.

So I'd go for Iceland as the winner. :geek:

Listened to them all the other night.

Serbia is surely a contender. I like Bosnia as well.

Turkey and Moldova will get some votes I would think. There are quite a few other reasonable ones.



The Netherlands entry is completely batty, and unfortunately, Latvia has a very good chance . . . . . of coming last. :(



Humpaduck is doing his best, but it's a bit like putting up HMS Victory against the Bismarck.

Just been watching some of the semi final..... some wonderfully awful stuff.
Austria - "Vokki mit dein Po-Po" (no translation needed I think)
Ireland - Jedward, truly truly dreadful - RTE execs making sure they can't possibly win but didn't want to do a full Father Ted.

I'm confidently predicting victory for the Russian Grannies on Saturday night.

Nah, I reckon Portugal will give them 12 points irrespective.
The voting is just so blatantly political nowadays.....

Shame, I'd have liked to heard their version of "My lovely horse" ;-)
