MadeInHeaven said:I'm not 110% sure but don't Australians screen the show on a time delay (I seem to recall they make a weekend of it over Friday/Saturday/Sunday night?) so, whilst some fans must try and keep themselves away from the internet to spoil the show, do we think it's possible that a lot of them knew Azerbaijan had won the contest and therefore didn't vote for the song by the time they got around to watching the show?
Still not getting the Greek love.

cjwhite1 said:Haha, point taken. But I mean more as we gave Jedward 12, they are an incredibly familiar act in the UK, surely the same should have gone for Blue in Ireland? Didn't they give us 5, or 6?
I looked a total idiot at my Euovision party... "DON'T PANIC GUYS! We'll definitely get big ones from Ireland!!". Cringe.

WowWowWowWow said:Not sure where else to post this, we don't seem to have a Eurovision General Chat thread (probably for the best) -- but I just discovered this article in the New Yorker (a stodgy American magazine). It's a bit of a long read, and it's from 2010, but I find American press coverage of an event that America doesn't much care about as a whole (except for us random people!) to be very interesting.
