I'll record it, and fast forward through it just before the voting

Might watch Madge but she ain't the looker she once was

If the clip of her at the show I saw is anything to go by not even autotune can help her hit the right notes...  noooo:
You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe

The whole thing was utter shite even on fast forward.  My only vestigial interest was whether I'd get the family sweepstake prize for Belarus coming last.  But the UK's dreary effort (if that's the word) out losered them so that was 30 I missed out on

It long lost any merit and sadly it's just not funny any more and Madge's awful rendition of the classic Like a Prayer was the turd in the whole fetid swimming pool

Apparently the only reason the UK came last was because of Brexit...  lol:

Madonna has reached the point where she either has to accept that she has aged and reinvent herself accordingly or turn into even more of a parody of her 20 year old self.

Nah not Brexit, nor even lingering Iraq feelings but so many nations hate that we (and Germany etc) are big successful nations and they aren't and even more that they know we produce so much excellent music year after year but offer up such insulting dross for our Eurovision entries.

We timed it so we wouldn't have to watch any of it live and then the sods over ran so we had to watch much of the voting live.  Was funny when Germany got not a single point from the actual audience voting and nor should they.

As ever the Enosis conspiracy meant Greece and Cyprus licked each other's arses with douze points each but even that's not funny anymore, just predictably boring.
