THE HORROR!
The post I was planning to write tonight got sucked out of me by the execrable awfulness of the Eurovision Song Contest Semifinals. I was transfixed.

Brain scrub, stat!

It's become a freak show... It could be a LOT shorter if they would disqualify all participants that can't sing. ;-)

Ouch, I just saw the Ukrainian transvestite. And you thought Denmark was bad...

I thought they were ALL bad!! Except Hungary. :)

I liked Hungary too. And Georgia, for being original.

It's like really, really bad Vegas. hahaha

OMG! I always thought fan dancing was only performed by females....there's a reason for that!! But, looks like they forgot to take their clothes off! Lizardmom

i really wish hungary would win because they got such a good singer and a song. at least she got to finals now i have something to look forward to on saturday!

I agree! She was the only one of the 28 songs that was good. We have to tape the final on Saturday because none of us will be home to see it!

yeah, thumbs up for her, i hope she wins this contest of all the singers. :)

I saw a picture of Peter Andersen, the Danish drag artist wearing "normal" female clothes and an appropriate wig. He looked much more believable than in that garish outfit. As many people said, transvestites and transsexuals have already been done in the ESC, so you can no longer count on getting votes out of sheer thrill. He did sing better than most other transvestites so far, but the outfit and a boring song worked against him.

I'm mostly sad for the sake of Andorra missing the final. I'm also a little bit sorry for the horrible stylist the Moldavian girl must've hired. She looked a bit like an Xtina (Christina Aguilera's former sexy image) lookalike, just that it didn't look sexy, just stupid. If I remember correctly, she wore something like a white blouse and jeans in the video, and they probably should've worked out an outfit from there.

A few of the other participants had their clothes improved from the former performance. While the Portuguese girl still sang out of tune (like almost every Portuguese entry the last five years or so - don't they have voice coaches in Portugal?), at least she had been awarded a somewhat decent dress, if one is fond of knee-length bright white dresses.


over here, they are showing it on Saturday night, so I shall have to wait till then to watch. Of course here it is looked on as broadstroke comedy, with the most interest in what over the top puns and old comedy material Terry Wogan can wheel out.

This was the semi-final. The actual song contest final is on Saturday.

i can't believe i missed the semis.... looking forward to sat. :)

Believe me, you didn't miss anything!! *scrubs brain again*

I agree whole-heartedly...

I couldn't watch all of it. LOL! And wow has it become East European song contest... Saturday will be a nightmare that way, during the voting. Haha.

I couldn't either. I kept walking away, and then I gave up after Hungary (that was the only one I liked and I was sorry to find out this morning they didn't make the cut).

(Anonymous)

Where did you find that out? They DID get through?

I liked Hungary too. I am happy she was as great live as she was in the preview video!

I liked Iceland as well.

Wait, what?! Someone told me at breakfast (at work) this morning that she didn't make it. I'll go check out the actual website.

I saw them get through with my own eyes! :)

You're right! I just checked the official website! I'll have to go bop my ignorant colleague on the head for bumming me out. :P

what was up with the entry from Turkey!!!??? That was horrid!

And I can't believe Hungary didn't make the cut. They had the ONLY good song! :(

I don't remember Hungary. I liked the last one with the six guys. I thought that was neat. Gearing up for saturday. Will have lots of alcohol to make it (more)amusing. :)

ooh yeah!!! HUNGARY!! The blues girl. She was AWESOME! I can't believe they didn't make it either. I thought she would make it....NOT turkey!!!! ugh!

I just found out that my colleague who told me Hungary didn't make the cut was misinformed. She DID!

Squeal!!

LOL! Was that a squeal of joy or revulsion?
