    Eurovision.tv and SVT Play definitely aren't. I have used those two but haven't tried any others.

    You can also check ETV - http://otse.err.ee/etv/
    and ORT - http://tvthek.orf.at/live

    KONSPIRACY THEORY ALERT (some gossip roundup courtesy of the Polish OGAE journalist)

    There are rumours amongst the press that there were not enough televotes in a lot of the ex-Yugo countries so only the jury votes were used. That would explain why no ex-Yugo countries qualified. EBU said that it's will neither deny nor confirm that info because 'it wants to protect the contest from manipulations'.

    There are also rumours that the Armenian singer is gay. Shock, horror.

    And there is a feeling amongst the press that Denmark is being pushed to win. SVT reportedly wants to transfer everything to the Danes, they are supposed to have reserved the arena in Copenhagen already and they got what's perceived as more or less the best starting order.

    There will be another gay kiss in the final! The tide of history is sweeping on. :)

    ETA: It's a real shame that France is opening and will be forgotten by the time voting starts. It's one of the best songs this year and deserved a stronger starting order.

    I wish they haven't given such a good slot to "Waterfall." :/ Ireland closing is a good choice (Romania would be even better :rofl:).

    13th (first after interval) seems perfect for Anouk.

    I think Greece is now guaranteed top 10 and might even place top 5. Since none of the ex-Yugo countries have qualified and neither has Bulgaria, Greece is probably going to scoop up the Balkan vote.

    It's pretty easy for the juries to bury songs like Greece with the new voting system. So that could keep the 12s and 10s from going to Greece.

    If I followed them, I would die of alcohol poisoning less than 30 minutes through. ;p

    With some alcohol in the blood system, you will not be able to notice all the reasons Eurovision gives you to drink :D

    a large pack of cookies and a packet of peanut crisps are waiting! plus a bottle of wine, it will be necessary if one of the songs I seriously dislike wins (Greece, Romania, Georgia, Lithuania, Belarus).
    as for the drinking game - with so many rules, I'd probably pass out in a quarter :p.

    I'm at the annual ESC party. It's me and 6 gays - one of the highlights of the year. So much fun. :D There's alcohol, but it's not free (this is Norway after all). Have fun, you guys! And may the best song win. :cheer2:
