well the uk did remarkably well today landing 5th position. That's the best we've done since 2002!
Norway had an excellent song choice, to which reminded me of a band called Voltaire. Norway also scored the most posts ever seen in Eurovision history, which is pretty epic!
Turkey… well… I can't believe they got even one point as I thought their song was god awful.
I really liked Sweden because I enjoy Opera.
I alsoo agree that everyone votes for their neighbouring countries, but this was actually cut down as this year's Eurovision had a new voting structure. The points were decided by a panel of that country's professional judges and of course, the votes from the public. However, I still feel like everyone just voted for their neighbouring countries.
Personally, I think voting for neighbouring countries should also be banned. I also think moscow did a fantastic job of hosting the contest, but what the hell was with that wierd swimming pool bit at the end?
ah well… I'll put up a link of all the songs if anyone is interested?
