I am very tired today after three late nights of Eurovision viewing.  I don't mind that Azerbaijan won, though I don't think it was a particulalry great song. I thought France would have done better, and was surprised that Italy did so well.  I don't understand why everbody was so sentimental about the return of Italy, they haven't had a good song since I don't know when.  My favourite Serbia did not do so well in the vote, but Nina sure gave a great performance.  I am still working on my final votes, and will post the results soon.

Azerbaijan won the televote, but Italy won the jury vote by approximately 70 points I believe. Even the televoters placed Italy 11th.

There are rumors the Czech Republic and Morocco might return to Eurovision in 2012, while Israel and Portugal might withdraw. What does Neville think of this?

As a European I have to say that Eurovision is the collation of the best bad sog from Europe.

Sweden has won the 2012 Eurovision:
It wasn't that bad of a song honestly but Sweden wasn't my favorite. I also have to say Russia surprised me this year with grandma pop song.

The Eurovision season for 2013 began 2 days ago with Belarus' selection of their entry! Alyona Lanskaya will finally get to represent her country in Malmo next year! Her song is 'Rhythm of Love', and it is a dance song.

Interesting note about this year's Danish singer, Emmelie de Forest. She claims to be a great-great-grandchild of Queen Victoria! (Her grandfather was supposedly an illegitimate child of King Edward VII.)

Denmark's song is one of my favorites this year, alongside Belgium, Ukraine, and Albania.

Also of note about this year's Eurovision, the Salvation Army (of all people) is representing Switzerland! Their song isn't all that bad, actually.

And apparently Emmelie de Forest isn't at all descended from Queen Victoria, that was just a marketing ploy. Okaaay.....

And the biggest shock from the second semi is that Israel failed to make the final despite absolutely deserving to! I'm still amazed that Romania and Hungary got through!

Denmark won Eurovision for the third time today. And Eric Saade was completely inappropriate on live television.

After Austria's Bond theme-esque song sung by a drag queen won for Austria in color for the first time last year (and second overall), pissing off Russia something serious, Vienna will host this year's Eurovision. Since it's the 60th anniversary, Australia was invited as a guest, and the Czech Republic will return. Ukraine took a year off due to the War in the Donbass. Sweden and Estonia are the favorites to win Eurovision 2015.
