Default This Eurovision was horrible.

First of all, almost every song was the same, horrible romantic song style that nobody listens to. There were a few good songs, but the rule was bad.
1) People's votes only made up half of the points, the rest were sent by small groups each country had.
2) Germany's song wasn't bad, but it was certainly not the best. Still, Germany is very strong economically, and got ridiculous amounts of votes.
3) There were groups of countries that voted for each other all the time. (For example, Turkey, Albania, Azerbaijan and Romania)
4)France sent a black singer. Since there are tons of racists, even though the French song was really good, it got totally downrated.
5)So many countries, so many languages, still, almost everybody used English. Do Russians talk to each other in English? No? Then why enter with an English song?
6) Two specific countries had incredibly ridiculous songs. I won't mention which countries, but they are pretty obvious.

If it is going to be that horrible, better not have the contest at all.

Because everyone else speaks English. Russians don't speak to Russians in English; But Russians might speak to Germans in English.

Having watched the show for the last few years (excluding last year), I thought that it was extremely good. The songs, overall, were of a much higher standard than previous years, and the show was quite amusing at the same time.
Of course, the UK came last, which I don't exactly find surprising, considering how poor our entry was. For some reason, the UK never has the initiative to enter an act that is already popular with a popular song. That was what Germany did, and look where that got them!

Well, hey, several countries didn't even make it to the final.

Finland picked a Finnish song and look what happened. Singing in English is just playing it safe.

E: Oh, and I don't like how they always subtitle the songs (stupid translations).

UK came dead last for the finals. Obviously, we did something wrong, since we came 5th last year. Of course, I only watched the points being given out and Germany's redo. So yeah.

Who remembers 2007 when Serbia won, with a rather bad song?

Andrew Lloyd Webber didn't write the song this year.

I found it boring. I watch Eurovisions because there are lots of different kinds of songs, and it is fun to watch ridiculous people some times. This year, almost everyone sent the same kind of songs, I don't know how it is called but you get the point. I hate those songs, I just hate them. I don't know about other people, but I only liked the French song, and the Greek song. The latter probably doesn't count, since I am Greek, but I find it extremely annoying that the French song was so downrated. But hey, a majority of Europeans are racists, the French should expect that.

I totally agree, I found Greece and France quite good, but I also extremely liked Belgiums song. And I find that Germany`s song was EXTREMELY annoying. Thank goodness Serbia didn`t win, though.

I didn't find any of it annoying, just disappointingly non-insane.

And we had to see that TWICE, because some idiot absolutely had to enter the stage.

Edit: And I have to agree with Felixrain about Serbia. That kind of songs have won in the past, fortunately that didn't happen again.

Yeah, that was pretty crazy, but not up to scratch on some of the craziness from previous ones.

Hehe, I thought he was part of the act, and said "Oh no! They're going to have a rap bit!" Then he got escorted off the stage. Sill, he joined in with the dance pretty well. If he'd been English he would have been shouting abuse and pushing people over.

I thought he was part of the act too! And I didn`t realize that the two people grabbing him by the arms were police; I thought they were dancing through the crowd with him, and the three were going back on stage!
