tonight: eurovision!!!

i love eurovision. i lovelovelovelooooooove eurovision. absolutely love it.  i first watched it in 1999 on sbs in australia and was hooked straight away.

i mean, wha’ts not to love about it? the cheesy performances, the crazy clothes, the so-last-century songs, the spectacular stages, the terrible hosts. and then there’s my favourite part: the counting the votes. it’s quite funny how these countries all have their ‘allies’ they vote for. take the scandinavian countries, for example, who give top points to each other. no matter how good or bad the performances are, they’ll vote for each other anyway. it’s ridiculous.

now that i live in norway, watching eurovision (or melodi grand prix as they call it here) is even better because i have someone to cheer on. i’m going to cheer for norway and MOH is going to be patriotic  and back england.  i’m pretty sure norway is going to do better than england today.

so let’s go norway!!!!!!!!

ps. i hope after tonight i won’t have to listen to alexander rybak singing ‘fairytale’ some more because that song is starting to get to my nerves. it feels like i’ve heard it a thousand times already. kinda sick of it. i’m even sick of the violin part even though i adore violin. it’s cute the first few times but when you go to bed and wake up haunted by a song for days, it’s just too much.

    OMG! Your country won. Err, I mean the country where you live won. I mean……nevermind! LOL Norway won!

    I can’t believe it. I didn’t watch the show last night and just asked my friend who won and they said it was Norway!

      oooh… how come you didn’t watch the show? eurovision is so much fun. hi-freaking-larious.

      i can’t believe norway won either. i thought one of the half-naked ladies from other countries would.

    Bener, top deh tu fairytale, sampe2 supir bus aja nyanyiin terus tu lagu 🙂
    Aku pikir yg bakal menang tu sweden or denmark, suara mrk bagus2 bgt. Gak nyangka rybak bakal menang soalnya lagunya rada childish gitu, he2..
    Skrg pasti norway lagi pusing.. gimana bisa bikin studio lebih bagus dari rusia buat taon depan 🙂

      mgk rybak menang soalnya lagunya happy trus simpel jd gampang diikuti. trus catchy jg pas bagian ‘i’m in love with a fairytale’ jd orang2 gampang ingat.

      sweden sama dk kurang entertaining jd ga menang 🙂

      iya pas udah keliatan rybak bakal menang, hubby langsung blg, liat deh, duit kita tahun dpn yg dibayar ke nrk hbs kepake buat bayar ini.
