    It's a catchy song, I find myself singing it all the time.
    Wonder how many of Lena look alike we will see in the next ESC.
    If she participates too, we will be able to actually compare them live.

    Whilst it was pretty, I found it extremely dull, it hardly changed from start to finish other than increasing in intensity.

    And he didn't sing as well as he could (although the final was much better than the semi).

    How did they factor in the jury votes? I saw the country audience votes and that seemed to be the only thing they were tallying on the votes board. How were the jury votes counted?

    What you saw being tallied on the scoreboard was a combination of televoting and jury votes (50% each). The juries voted on the dress rehearsal the night before.

    Looking forward to seeing which city will be chosen to host next year and who will present. Perhaps Marlene Charrell again?

    If our participation is confirmed, this will actually be the first time that Ireland competes in an ESC in Germany as we weren't in it in 1957 and had to withdraw in 1983 due to financial reasons. Here's hoping we can qualify to the final.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    The juries voted after having watched the final dress rehearsal, which was at 1PM on Saturday.
    Voting method

    Citizens of each participating country vote by telephone and SMS, which counts for 50%. Each country's 10 favourites are awarded 1 to 8, 10 and 12 points based on the number of vote. A jury in each country also has a 50% say in the outcome.
    Same as last year.

    Lena is from Hannover (wheee, local girl for me) so it is speculated to do it in Hannover next year. Then the FSU Eurovision party can take place at my house.
    Berlin or Hamburg are the other alternatives but nothing is decided yet.

    I would be happy just to have it on US TeeVee. Besides, I don’t know how many rude ‘mericans would get ESC.

    Is it time to start a "Eurovision 2011" thread or is it too early?



    Well, the following countries have confirmed their participation for next year: Azerbaijan, Belgium, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Malta, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey and Ukraine.



    Austria and Hungary are undecided and Liechtenstein might make its debut!

    Not surprising Poland isn't confirmed after the results we've had in the last several years.

    She probably considers herself far too good for it. Her ego is massive. And it's just been boosted by her getting 70kPLN for her 20th anniversary show she's just done for one private tv network (that's over 20k$ or almost 17k€).

    To return to Sweden not making the final, which was seen as a national disaster, Salem Al-Fakir that definitely should have won Melodifestivalen ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBREf1tUUZE ) would have surely done much better.

    A few days ago, I've finally listened to the Alcazar song for the first time and it's wonderful, camp fun! Shame it didn't even make it to the final.

    Best Week Ever did its part to pump up the gaudy fabulousness of Eurovision to Americans.

    Ah but alas, such an endeavor is likely a waste of ink on the American public ... akin to other lost causes like soccer.
