Question: What are the FSU voting timelines? Are you able to post them in the sticky Eurovision thread?

Thanks.

For the semis it will be 30 April. Then we'll all vote again for the final. I hope to have all results by 21 May.

Never mind the bets. Get on with your points! ;)

Some songs are not in their final versions yet (Angel Si Ti is going to be translated into English, for one), though.

And there are usually huge differences between the recorded versions of songs and the live performances when it turns out most of the participants can't actually sing. :P

And I guess what you judge in the end is the whole performance. Pretty much all songs who have won in recent years are ones who have put on an amazing show (and would have possibly be totally ignored otherwise).

I guess our results will be a testament to the actual songwriting. :D

Best Eurovision act ever.

I am still totally :rofl: over the fact nobody understood it was all a joke at the time (Silvia Night is a hilarious over-the-top persona played by a professional comedienne).

So unfair that she hasn't qualified. :drama:

UNGRATEFUL BASTARDS! :mad:

Thanks! :cheer2:

Ziggy, the last three years we did the polls FSU got the winners in 2007 and 2009 right and our pick in 2008 came 2nd. That was all without seeing the final versions. ;)

And here I thought the winning was all about who used the most fire/smoke/pyro and had the hottest dancers with the tightest routine. :D

Just to clarify: We're not allowed to vote for our "own" countries, right?

Shame, the Swedish song is the best of the GFBs this year imo.

Results sent. :)

I did understand and loved her humor, and so did some of the posters here. ;)
She was one of my favorites that year, and I totally wanted her to win!

My favourite line of hers was:

'You vote for some ugly old bitch from Sweden [and you don't vote for me].'

That's exactly what I thought about Carolla too. :EVILLE:

I can never get over BWO's "Temple of Love" not winning Melodifestivalen that year. :drama:

My annual bash (the 2nd group)
Armenia - I don't believe she won't be offkey during the actual competition. Wait,she's already off key. Needed to look on the screen to figure whether it's a male or a female singer. Apricot? Seriously? Erm... ok...

Israel - yay, he is singing Hebrew. Thanks for that. Which is just as well, his articulation is horrible and he's swallowing 2/3 of the constonants (the 1/3 he is mispronouncing to begin with). I actually like the song and the style

Denmark - the style, ah the style. Love it. The accent is funny. Arrrrgh, the key change, why oh why. Still it was goodl

Switerland - yay, another language. Good. Started listening and liked it, so decided to take a look whether they are equally hot as last year's entrance. Now I'll have nightmares. Hello, Cheburashka

Sweden - meh... usual boring ballad... Um.. is she serious about the pink sneakers?

Azerbaijan - I was ready for a nightmare, rightly so. It's so usual - a shouting woman who probably doens't understand what she singns, looks kind of hot in a trashy way and there are seeeeeexy moves around her... Her accent is hilarious.

Ukraine - I expect someone good looking. Ok, she is. If she won't be off key it's not bad... Wish she was singing Ukranian though

Netherlands - nice and catchy

Romania - will they sit near the pianos till the end or will thye jump on the piano? Calling `boy' someone who is obviously in his late 50th is kind of funny

Slovenia - totally cute and NOT English!

Ireland - totally meh

Cyprus - oh well...

Croatia - the first lady is off the key even before the song had started. Some extra points for not singing English. The 2nd lady is not much better. Ladies, you are supposed to start the sentence from the right note, not slide into it at some point. I won't even start commenting on their movements on the stage.

Georgia - after hearing how they sing in the churches I can't believe the crap they send to the Eurovision. The 4 girls we heard in a tiny church in a god forgotten village were SO much better... And they sang Georgian which is kinda cool. Oh well, at least unlike the Azerbaijan she is dressed... and erm.. was she ever told that producing the voice through the cheekbones and nose is much less painful than pressing the throat.

Turkey - if they were singing Turkish.. oh well, it's not that bad anyway

OMG I just hope that Spanish clownish dancers donīt push illegally any other participant before entering the stage making you (again) lost money :shuffle: :drama: ;)

I might have said it already but way to go having made a young girl look like an old whore. :rofl:
