Has anyone bothered their @rses to watch it?

I used to when it was a song contest, then I stopped and used to just listen to TW's comments while the scores were announced. This year I haven't bothered at all.

Not that it counts for owt anyway. I just wondered.

    It wasn`t even very funny this year.

    i thought it was hilarious, especially when Icelance had a model smoking volcano on thier table, in fact icland having to choose slightly tubby backing singers so they didnt make the main singer look out of proportion was funny as funny

    in fact I laughed my censored off at the terrible-ness of the whole thing and at my friends wife who thinks that the scoring is someway linked to the song they just heard

    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.

    Don't really understand why anyone would watch it. The UK should stop entering.

    Niether do I, especially now TW's chucked it in. I believe the UK are one if not the major funder of the "contest". Can't imagine Azerbiajahn tv having a great deal of cash to put in can you.

    Please tell me there is a Facebook group calling for Britains withdrawal from the Eurovision Song Contest. Oh, there is!

    Is it ok to watch it in a post-modern, ironic kinda way ?

    Why would you waste your time?

    You could be sticking pins in your eyes or extracting your own teeth without anaesthetic in that hour or so...

    Good to see that you take full advantage of life's rich tapestry. :lol:

    I remember when that Babestation censored started, they nearly showed nipples then got told off. How long before they start jamming stuff inside each other? Never seen such terrible censored on TV before.

    I don`t think that`s allowed but if you watch it long enough you sometimes get a glimpse of something you shouldn`t and when that happens they have to stop the show {they could lose their license} and the girls are taken outside and shot. :(

    They don't make 'em like that any more.

    Love the comment from the guy wanting the English mp3 as he already has the Swedish version...

    Well I reckon the Armenian singer deserved a show of her own and her dress deserved an award (best supporting structure or something).
