    I voted for France, I genuinely thought they had the best visual show. But they came last! Iceland had a great pro-tolernace song that might have done better had it not been given such an early slot and maybe appeared directly after Conchita Wurst. The Danish entry was so damn catchy - and I am in love with the hot male dancers! So glad Austria won. All the liberal countries (Scandinavia, UK, Ireland) which gave their 12 points to Wurst were clearly determined to stick two fingers up to Putin and all other homophobic medieval relics of the past!

    I can't believe I totally missed Eurovision this year icon_eek.gif but looking at some of the videos I can find on Youtube I saw on the opening Finals one of the contestants went shirtless or something... Which nation did that? Anyone know?

    OMG Paula Seling & Ovi were there this year, love them icon_razz.gif
    Loved the song they did that one year for Eurovision "Playing with Fire" that should have won that year.
    From this year...was okay certainly not there best performance.

    I am going to go ahead and admit my ignorance. What is Eurovision and how does it work?

    My parents have gone to Eurovision almost every year. It's where they went on their honeymoon and 3 years later where they saw ABBA win something like 10 years before I was born. They still go, and have missed less than 5 in all those years. So it's always a big topic of conversation in our family, as most of my siblings and I "went" as babies, either newborn or about to be born.

    This year Conchita was a lively topic of conversation. The best was my dad, who now has 2 gay sons (ok he always had 2 gay sons, but my brother only figured it out and accepted it this past Christmas), who said, "I've got a lot more to learn in this life but I know great singing when I hear it, so my eyes will just have to figure out what I'm seeing!" I love my dad.

    toybrian saidI also have never heard of this but looks good so can someone tell us when it comes on or what time of year -around this times every year and maybe what channel produces it -the affiliated TV company of the previous year's winner. Most of the money comes from a minority of countries, these don't have to qualify (even though they all hate us in our case)?? The clips were amazing and would love to see it..

    I wish I remembered it! Maybe that's why I love ABBA so much though. icon_biggrin.gif
