Still not over the Netherlands losing to Austria because they had a woman with a beard.
 
Overall I am not a fan of Dutch contributions. This may be because we usually send boring acts and our media is always absolutely convinced we’re securing the win, and during the live broadcast it’s mostly complaints about other countries and favoritism. I’m not much of a patriot, haha. I usually prefer the Balkan countries because they deliver the best camp.

Most memorable Eurovision moment for me was watching Dana International win in 1998. I think that was the moment I became fully aware of trans people being people too (it sounds so terrible saying this now, but I was a pretty sheltered 12-year old kid and the only context in which I heard the word “trans” was to call someone a transvestite and/or travesty as a curse word)
She was such a force to be reckoned with, an empowered, formidable woman. I was obsessed. I played Diva so much, my parents “lost” the CD, mysteriously.
landverrader!

 
I thought all the songs were so good this year (I listened to every single one of them), but these two were my favorites. I do have kind of odd taste in music though, compared to most people.




Poland's entry was a runner up for me. My girlfriend and I listen to a lot of Polish pop music so I'm used to this style. This singer reminds me a lot of Viki Gabor and Carla Fernandes.

Eurovision turned into a big thing here this year, Finland is miffed and upset with Sweden because Sweden won, Sweden is upset with Finland for being a sore loser and not giving Sweden any points and Norway is watching this from the sideline and yelling "fight! fight! fight!" :D

Anyone here watching Eurovision in Malmö? The finale is tonight. This was the best thing on tv yesterday, 12 points to Swedens interval act. "Please don't be angry with us, we just love Eurovision too much" 😆

Yeees! And really happy we finally had a great song and show to offer with Nemo :)

Congratulations to you guys with the big win. 🥳 Huge win, so many points.

The less said about us this year the better. Norway got 16 points... 16! Last place. For the 12th time... 😔

I guess we can say we are very good at finishing last. But you know what, this year two Norwegians were part of writing the winning song for Switzerland. So we won a little in a way. 😁

Thank you for that, in that case 😀
 
Forest Cat, I'm rooting for Norway anyway. They should try something like this and maybe even start attacking a few countries for dramatic effect.

We messed up this year, we sent the band Gåte. Imagine being one of the most popular bands in a country and you have been that since the 90s. Sold tons of records, played hundreds of concerts. Then you have a go at Eurovision and you end up in last place... That's not funny. But they were the wrong band for Eurovision, everything was too Norwegian and they sang in Norwegian. But next year we are coming back strong. Winning. :D

Yes, I think I see what you mean. Impressive song, but Eurovision seems to lean towards flashy dance party music. But I say that as someone who has only paid scant attention to it.
