    Meh result. Dislike! Italy did ok again. Top of the Big 5. The French singer had a good song but her stage presence and charisma are non-existent. Hence the result. Interestingly, all the ex-Yugo countries gave Denmark 12 points except Croatia which gave it 10, total 58 points from them alone :O

    Tell us how you really feel, Ziggy. I hadn't been following at all this year but looked it up on YouTube. As someone said upthread, it would be a mid-popular indie love song for sad college girls here. Maybe. It wasn't atrocious.

    He was partly off-key, wasn't hitting the high notes and I still think that the presentation of the song is a chaotic mess.

    How could you possibly call that song 'an indie song?'

    It pretty much follows the 'how to write a winning Eurovision song' recipe.

    An ethno ballad with a cheesy flute hook, 'organic' presentation and a really flat delivery which was OTT emoting throughout and showed no variation or light and shade.

    Nah, the rest of Europe was just jealous of our fine hot men.

    Well, it worked then I guess. Mission accomplished.

    I think I know how you feel. Last year we sent Tooji and thought he'd do OK, and he came dead last. We were all like "how the hell did that happen? He didn't deserve that!!"

    Ireland certainly didn't deserve last place. I loved your song. Heck, I gave it 12 points in the semi!!! And the dancers were super hot!

    Rhetorical question, but has the government of Azerbaijan not got more important issues? I love Eurovision, but that is seriously ridiculous.

    Thanks!

    But I wasn't really upset. Someone has to finish last innit.

    Maybe we can come back strong like Norway this year although I have my doubts that we will.

    Meanwhile.....

    That has to be up there with Terry Wogan blaming the Iraqi war in 2003 as the reason the UK got zero points that year.

    More DRAMA and KONSPIRACY between Russia and Azerbaijan!

    Russia's foreign minister has called Azerbaijan's failure to award any points to Russia's entry in the Eurovision song contest "outrageous".

    Sergei Lavrov said the points had been "stolen" from Russia's Dina Garipova and "this outrageous action will not remain without a response".
    Despite the high-level political interest, 10 points for second place from Azerbaijan would not have made any difference to Garipova's fifth place, since she finished 17 points behind Norway.

    Azerbaijan, which hosted last year's contest, has traditionally tried to maintain good relations with Moscow though there have been tensions over energy in the past.

    Meanwhile, the president of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, has weighed in with his own accusations. Suspicious that the Belarusian singer did not receive a single point from Russia, he has claimed that the final was falsified.
    Let me just guess, there's got to be an oil or gas pipeline involved in this somehow.

    What ... Azeris have enough oil of there own, I am glad they are not planning any invasion in the name of peace and Justice.

    It's going to be a hat-trick for Valentina Monetta!

    Valentina Monetta to represent San Marino in 2014

    San Marino seems to perceive their Eurovision participation as a good way of promoting their country. They were also very happy with her performance this year saying 'Valentina did everything she possibly could. To us, she won.' Valentina also seemed to be having a great time this year and the song was very well liked by Eurovision fans (but apparently not anybody else ).

    Hopefully her 2014 performance will be even more epic.
