Eurovision 2024

These notes about UK being raunchy... did I miss something? It wasn't exactly pornographic

I actually didn't find it that raunchy, but to be honest it did come across a little sleazy and tacky, like a promo for a gay sauna (as interesting as the spinning gimmick was) I've seen him today being called a pound shop Sam Smith...

To be honest he is better than that performance and the song was hard for him to sing live even though the studio version is great. I saw another clip of him performing it on TikTok I think where he wasn't even moving around as much and it sounded so out of tune.

Omg why is this so accurate.

For me, the faces he made were too much. I don't know what the intention was, but he genuinely looked possessed at some points. Combining that with the sexual elements of the performance (hot guys, etc.) I can see why people might've thought of it as raunchy. I didn't mind it, of course.

He deserved much more than 0 points though. I was honestly gagged by that.
 
Looking back, and this might have been discussed thoroughly already, but if the EBU couldn't exclude Israel because of their 'no politics' stance, they could/should have done it out of safety reasons. Especially with contestants like Lithuania, Switzerland and Ireland coming out about feeling unsafe. Oh well.
 


The best moment. The cheers when Ukraine got their amazing, well deserved score from the public vote, then the reaction when the leader board is shown and Ukraine is number one and Isreal can officially no longer win.

Memorable moment indeed. The relief! But why does it take 15 seconds between saying their score and seeing on the scoreboard that they moved to the top spot? That could be done better.

Nemo and Bambie both filed complaints with the EBU about the Israeli delegation/broadcasting teams. Bambie actually submitted multiple, had it confirmed to them that the Israeli commentators did in fact break the rules by insulting them in their commentary, and still nothing was done. It's shameful, really.
 
Hopefully next year, whatever happens with the contest, the positive trend in native languages being used at Eurovision continues. This year marked the highest percentage of native-language songs since 2008, and nearly half of all entries were partially or completely in a language other than English.

Another positive aspect is, like in recent years, the non-English language songs haven't languished at the bottom of the voting either. Half of this year's top 10 are in languages other than English.

I really hope Belgium sends a song in Dutch.

I really hope the UK sends a song in Welsh. It's something we've never done so would be a talking point, and with the right vocalist could lap up jury votes.

Well this is exactly why the best (and most probing question) to the delegation in the press Q&A was exactly around this. To which their response was, nothing basically. Mess of a year. I'm sick of hearing about it honestly. Martin must go No.1
 
Oof, I hadn't noticed that. Ouch indeed.

I've definitely missed something but why is Måns on the shit list? Is it just because he's thoroughly bland, or has he done something?
He's currently doing Masked Singer on a different network so I think it's just contractual obligations.
