What a truely awful program it was. I was forced to watch by the long haired general who went as far as buying wine and snacks for the event. I was asleep shortly after the strange Austrian done his set - one of the worst for years. The only redeeming feature of the entire thing is Terry Wogans commentary, which is always a laugh.
Are we really that bothered by the opinions of countries who produce acts such as 'Nena' (she of 99 red Ballons & hairy armpits), that little frog slapper (can't remember her name but she sang that 'Joe le Taxi? sh*t), the Gypsy Kings (bunch of fat guitar playing Spaniards)?, the two commie lezzers dressed up as schoolies (OK, I can live with that one for a long time ) Oh come on, just have a look at the charts for each of these 'European' countries..........dominated by Brit bands....... whilst their home grown tosh only gets played on their respective versions of Radio 2!! (and in 'Out of Bounds' German bars)
Besides,all of those countries have more in common with each other, than they have with us............they've either been liberated by us, invaded by us, defeated by us or bailed out by us!!
'Nul points' in the Eurovision Song Contest? My chest swells and I'm proud to be British. I become depressed when we do well in what has to be one of the most appalling televised events of the year. I'd rather watch the shagging Oscars for God's sake!
Let's be positive about the whole thing, they had a terrible song - couldn't sing on the night and so saved us - the taxpayer hundreds of thousands of pounds, as we will not have to host it next year...
Ma-sonic, come on Nena was gorgeous (if like me you were 14 and stuck in a nearly all boys boarding school in the middle of f--king nowhere) and that bird in Joe Le taxi? Vanessa what sit? come on be a man......
But I notice they all sang in our languague so whose cultural superioity is on show there?
Molest me not with these Abba wannerbe's.
(Mind you it might have helped if Jeminie had been able to sing in key)
For all of the above reasons the Eurosong comp is still well worth it every year! I laugh my ass off at Sir Terry's observations and the pathetic point scoring of every other nation, who gives a flying rats ass, it's still good television and should be seen as such.
For what it's worth the two talentless scousers, who aren't even pub singer quality, were crap and they know it. Politics my ass, they were just shite and out of tune.
They were sh*te weren't they? I only saw the highlights today, f*ck me the Chuckle Brothers could have done better. I can't see why anyone whinged about them being last, they were talentless gits, he was a right a**se and her singing was as flat as Jamspanglers wifes chest (which is so flat it has double yellow lines along it). They didn't deserve any points. Mind you, as Scousers, they probably went through the changing rooms like a dose of Andrews Liver Salts, so the night wasn't a complete waste of time for them
OK 8esar, point taken, but I did retract earlier.............still wouldn't do the 'furry' boxhead though mate!
Can you remember the TOTPs appereance by Venessa for 'Joe le taxi'? I was in Germany at the time, and feeeking hell, I can remember this young lady, minus a bra, pointy nips and all, plus a suggestive dance! The NAAFI bar 'buzzed' for a week after about this young French girl and her 'pointy nips'!!
What your looking at in Soldier Why's links is the Holywood version of her. In the late 80's, dressed in Fu&k me boots the girl was a godess, now shes in a "low carb, gotta be thin, married to a star" situation.
But agree with you, shes french, so send her to the "what amimals shall we kill" thread in the NAAFI Bar!
