  1. Every so often either one of these songs...

    ...will come up on shuffle and I'll be thrust straight back to MGP 2015 when the alt-gay vote got split between these two statuesque queens and allowed a dumb cOmEdY song about pizza to get through to the Gold Final in either of their places

  2. Human Beings were my MGP 2015 favorite and it definitely would be my Eurovision 2015 winner... I still feed sad about that.

  3. One of the biggest injustices in Eurovision is the sleek and classy bop only getting 3 points. It legit sounds a couple of years ahead of musical trends for the time.

  4. One more reason to love Lisbon 2018: Mans was nowhere near it.

  7. This performance will never not be brilliant

  8. Every once and I while I put this on and it just brings me such joy. The song, the iconic staging, Kate's beaming smile, the audience trying to sing along. Just wonderful and the 7th Heaven remix slaps.

  10. Still a terribly dated song regardless of the language, but I never knew Greece sang part of their song in English during the dress rehearsal in 1998. This was obviously before the free language rule came in. Does anyone know if any other countries lodged complaints as was the case with Poland in 1994?

    I suppose it was all overlooked given the general chaos around Greece's performance and rehearsals that year.

  11. I don‘t know about anyone else except for the Legend that is Poland 1994.

    Such a clever trick to get high jury points (and also proof that we neeeded to ditch the language rule).
  12. The language rule was becoming obsolete but where else could you hear songs performed in so many different languages? I wouldn't mind some kind of hybrid rule for the future, where a certain amount of the song must be performed in a national language, even just a verse or a chorus.

  13. One of the best vocalists to appear on the Eurovision stage. It sounds so effortless and you sense she's really holding back.
  14. On Saturday, the ESC Youtube channel will launch the Eurovision 2006 HD version.

  15. Not only is it HD but it won‘t be edited so you will see how the stage is setup between the songs.

  16. Im definitely biased being Greek and all but I love the amphitheater staging of the Contest. I feel with the giant screens used from the 2010s the stages have started to look very samey contrary to the more unique ones from the 2000s.

  17. Had a random eurovision memory today, and it sounds ridiculous, but bear with me

    Does anybody remember many years ago, I think around 2004, where an entry was disqualified from the Lithuanian preselection as it turned out to be "Ben" by Michael Jackson, and the intended "Artist" that had supposedly sung it was Lolly, at least a picture of her was used as the supposed entrant?

    Sounds crazy but I'm quite confident I haven't made it up, but can find no evidence online.
  18. Yep remember it too, and here is proof

  20. Well I'm not a certified psychologist...
