Yes, outside of the 'alternative media intelligentsia' there is widespread public understanding of what would come next.

A lot of backlash at the win online, but it was inevitable really. Interesting that the judges were somewhat more impartial and the European public were the unequivocal aspect. Many thought the opposite would be true. Without a war situation we'd have likely won, so can't really fault second place. Good tune, belted out. That'll do.

I only watched two songs and much admit that I liked the Moldovan entry. The second one I saw was the yellow wolf song and it made me wonder if that was the best song that Norway could come up with what on earth the losers were like

I read this morning that that's the 16th time the UK has been the runner-up.

It's a conspiracy! When even the cheese eating,surrender monkeys give us maximum points, there has to more to this than meets the eye............
in these harsh economic times for everyone, who wants the added costs of putting the show on next year? I know!, we'll vote the Brits in this year and make them pay........ Oh, and we'll give the sympathy vote to Ukraine, and if they cant afford to stage the event next year, then we still get to hand it to the Brits.

No, the Ukrainian song was good enough to win in its own right

Don’t know why the judges didn’t see it that way, the public tends to know what works for it better than the judges

I never watch the actual songs but I switch over for the voting which I find very amusing. I'm pleased that the Ukraine won it for obvious reasons, but I hope the UK doesn't get stuck with putting on this costly luvvy-fest next year. I bet we do though.

According to the news from Moscow, Russia won!

 


Dad and I watched games standing on the muddy slope of the Holmesdale Road end. He cheered and I rattled.

I heard this morning from David Bull on Talk TV that we are one of only five countries that pay for the whole Eurovision!

I doubt that we would’ve won it even without Ukraine getting the “sympathy” vote. We are always going to be on a loser once it goes to a popularity vote from the people of Europe.

They can argue the toss with North Korea who are no doubt also claiming victory.

Mate, it's 'Ukraine' not 'The Ukraine'. Despite Mr Putin's contrary belief, Ukraine is an independent nation. 'The Ukraine' was used to identify a particular region of the Soviet Union.

Really? I thought it was awful, but then again I liked Czech Republic and that came nowhere, but still, there’s no way that song would’ve won without the sympathy vote. No wonder that fella had that beanie hat down over his eyes, it was out of embarrassment
