Default Eurovision song contest. Any fans here?

The contest is on Saturday and I was wondering if there are any eurovision fans on this forum. I love watching the show, it is glamorously tacky and so much fun. I am hosting a Eurovision party as I usually do.
The menu will have whole wheat pizza with lots of vegetables, fresh fruit juices that might accidentally have a bit of alcohol and lots of criticising/bashing/booing and laughing.
Any favourite songs this year? or any from previous years?

I used to live with a girl who was obsessed with Eurovision and held a party every year! Now I just usually watch it for a laugh but will be working all weekend so I'll miss watching our entry getting the usual pathetic 8 or so points, lol. Boo!!

Party going on over here, though of course, we're the UK so I don't hold up much hope for us. I wish we didn't have to keep entering songs from the 1980s!

We have to dress up as a country, I'm still not totally decided yet. Maybe a German beer maid or some other awfully stereotypical get up...

Sum38 - Sorry, I won't be voting for Finland as she says "Skipping dinner to get thinner" I could never do that!
the shiv - I think that many people will vote for Bonnie Tyler (for old times' sake) as most of us need a hero.
Fiftyfive - cute song, nice,"crystal" voice

I quite like our entry - Alcohol is free and the Icelandic one but I haven't seen all the songs yet. I didn't like the songs from the 1st semi-final.

I used to watch it every year, but I don't like it as much anymore since they introduced the semi-finals. That, and my country rarely has anything good to offer in that contest. Did win a few years ago though, and had a party back then because we basically knew that would happen. But it is hilariously tacky and fun to watch, LOL.

Can I ask what exactly is Eurovision? I've heard it mentioned before on an old Graham Norton episode on BBC America. I wasn't sure what they were talking about.

Congratulations to Conchita! I'd love to go to Vienna to see it live next year. Oh and commiserations Molly, good song Oh well.

To anyone curious, just google Eurovision, it's a European tradition, they even have a YT channel with all the songs.

I don't even fully understand what it is and we don't have any way to view it here and I'm bitter about it every year. I think it is something I would LOVE. As someone who watches Miss America for the talent portion, I feel this was made for my viewing pleasure.
