Eurovision Song Contest 2021

  1. I love Lesley but searching for excuses to grab onto... isn't the tea.

    I'm sure the extra-long wait for production to get ready for her performance shook her confidence a little but, honestly, that was the least of her worries.

    The song, presentation and performance was simply outclassed by a bunch of big hitters.
  2. That message from Lesley isn't it.

    I fucking hate that condescending, "well clearly some people just didn't understand it" angle. It wasn't complicated, we got it, it was just shit.

    Decent song, terrible effort at the staging, choreo and most of all, vocals.

  3. I appreciated the use of props rather than relying on the video screen, but compared to most of the other performances yesterday it truly looked like a high school theater production.
  4. Ireland could have achieved the same sort of idea with the staging given the space and technology available to them without ending up with something that looked like a GCSE Art project. She also sounded dreadful on the night, but her joy and emotion at the end was a lovely moment. She should be proud of herself, focus on the positive, and not look for reasons for why it didn't happen for them last night.

  5. Yeah the song was ok, her vocals were off and the staging was naff. It's not some big conspiracy, a lot stronger songs and performances didn't qualify (Croatia....)

    Everyone watch and support now:
  7. I didn't bother with Ireland her 'artsy' performance during the semi final and I'm certainly not gonna bother with it now. Poor thing.

  8. I don't think she was hinting at the conspiracy, just the fact that there was a five minute delay between the postcard and the actual performance due to technical challenges. But yeah, it's barely worth discussing.
  9. Me waking up after Croatia NQ'd

  10. Seems a bit bitter there tbh
  11. Ireland is a prime example of just creatively getting it wrong with the live performance, the song was fine and had a decent chance of qualifying and not much more. Ukraine seem to be gathering a head of steam across the socials so will be strong performer in the public vote, how do we think the judges are likely to score it?

    Malta pretty much nailed her semi performance (maybe a little wobble on the big note at the end) but the audience ate her up, the song is an absolute ear worm, They seem to be the safest bet for a strong audience and judges score so I can see how its a strong favourite.

    Lithuania are great and should be top 5. Poor bloody Iceland, I am not sure they would have won but my feel is that the general public would have loved them and the judges too. I hope the recorded performance does them justice. Russia also ones to watch as well.

    So far it feels like an incredibly close Eurovision. Saturday night is going to be tense, so many strong entries.

    Of the big 5, I actually think only Italy stand a chance of doing something. Netherlands entry I love but not sure the live performance is it.

    God its so great to have Eurovision back!

  12. It was far too focussed on how things looked for TV too - the performance must have had NO energy in the arena. You can tell everyone woke up once she got away from that stage.
  13. This is me

  14. Poland is really going to come out on the very bottom tomorrow aren't they ddddd.

  15. I think the NQs will be Poland, Austria, Georgia, Estonia, Portugal, and Moldova.
  16. It's what we deserve.
  17. Iceland have Covid so no live performance from them tomorrow or Saturday! Let's pray they are the only ones and they are ok.
  18. Praying Flo Rida doesn't infect our freaky Queen.

  19. If Moldova was in the first, bop-filled semi final yeah but I think she has a strong chance tomorrow.
