Without getting too politically incorrect...i think its shocking that the amount of polish workers in this country that ship there wages home rather than spend in our country and then fail to give "us"-molly any points in the eurovision contest and then finish higher than us purely cause they show girls with deep cleavages being sexually provocative.....or am i mis reading the whole euro vision experience....

As the workers from other EU countries are in this country they can't vote for the UK song anymore that UK citizens in this country can. You should probably direct your point to the large numbers of Britons resident in France and Spain (for example) for their lack of patriotic voting.

Nope! I'm taking a few minutes break from sorting 5,000 plus images of Special Forces snipers and troopers which I captured last week in the Middle East. However once that job is over I need to work on shots of a rather pretty young lady I photographed sporting a Beretta ARX 160 assault rifle with the new GLX 160 underslung grenade launcher.

Our song didn't deserve 16th place (top 10 for sure) but there was better songs...Our country doesn't want us to win.

People across the globe love British music, we do it best and yet we churn out 'OK to rubbish' songs come Eurovision...even Adele has offered to do it 2 years now...

Problem is no-one likes the UK so we need a 'out of this world song' to win...it can be done. Andrew Lloyd-Webber got us to 5th place and the boys from Blue got us to 11th place (we was in the top 5 for ages throughout the voting)

Whether we win or not its a bit of fun seeing all the nutty acts win, can't wait for next year!

I think it spoils the fun of watching the voting if you have actually seen the songs. If it was a serious 'song' contest they would either all be sung by the same person or the performers drawn out of a hat. Having said that I didn't see last night...

Netherlands had the best song.

Italy had the best performance.

The UK entry was good but the singer had a weak voice. Eurovision is still a singing competition and all sung parts of a performance (including backing) must be sung live. Compare Molly Smitten-Downes' performance with that of Emma Morrone -

I think all the booing every time Russia got mentioned was a bit hard on the 17 year-old Tolmachevy twins. But they have already had success having won Junior Eurovision 2006.

Other random thoughts... How the hell did Iceland manage to get ZZ Top as their backing singers? France coming LAST?!? WTF?

I stand by my view on FB:

And so the freak vote wins purely because we live in age where people are genuinely scared of what others will think of them if they don't vote that way. If that song had been sung by some random man or woman, it would have got nowhere.



I personally liked Iceland. Eurovision needs more bonkers borderline psychobilly.

I agree, actually said that musically it was too good for Eurovision, reminded me of The Handsome Family but without the darkness.

Felt sorry for France as moustaches are the in thing in fashion at the moment.
