Eurovision thread

Recommended Posts

Interesting. You bring things up that are ages ago while the Ukrainian song has an actual meaning. When was the annexion of Crimea again. 2 years ago? She may have sung about what happened to her Grandmother during Stalins leadership but the relation to current events under Putin is quite clear.

What the heck?????

Are German people nowadays responsible for Hitler? I don't think so. Russian people aren't responsible for Stalin. That girl sings about Stalin, something that happened when Hitler was murdering millions of people too.

And Crimea was RUSSIAN for centuries. since the mid 18th. It has only been INSIDE Ukraine (not Ukrainian) for decades. And under the agreement that no matter what, Moscow would always be the owner. Nothing to do with the song.

Oh so many wrong things that I don't know why I bother.

No wonder that turd won if voters thought it had anything to do with Putin

For the record, only when Ukraine let NATO install bases in Crimea did Russia use the agreement. Something that any other government would have done too.

I'm tired of NATO propaganda, when all this is in history books.

Sure they are. Ever heard of collective guilt? And everytime it fits someone they pull the Nazi card. I cannot recall how many times I have been called a Nazi when I worked in hospitality industry and people wanted things they were not entitled to. And sorry to say that, but yes, it was mostly Israeli people. Older and younger, the younger even worse because they are survivors too. The fact that I wasn't born or not even my parents were born back then was not of any importance. I will admit that since the football world cup 2006 the reputation has changed. But I guess it also has to do with the fact that survivors have almost all died.

Not sure why you all dislike the Ukrainian song - it was my favorite. She deserved to win.

And saying politic should not be part of a song contest is rather dumb if you ask me.

Well, Russia is pretty angry with this Eurovision mess. Expect some song next year about how cruel are the Germans when they raped and killed Russian people in 1941 hahahaha.

They better not open pandoras box on this issue. For more then 50 years until the re-unification German people acknowledged the atrocities German soldiers and SS people did to the Soviet union but it was a no no to talk about what the Soviet army did to German women and girls on their way to Berlin. Mass rape. They took revenge the worst way possible. Women did not speak out of shame and political correctness. And quite frankly, Russia should have no say on those issues at all. Contrary to Germany which has acknowledged its past and the crimes against humanity it has committed, Russia with its Soviet past never did. They still seem to glorify all of it and ignore the fact that Lenin and Stalin were just as evil as Hitler and millions and millions of people were imprisoned and killed because of their political views or religious believes. They seem to think because they won WWII they get a free pass.

It was originally supposed to just be for one year due to Australia loving Eurovision so much for decades. However, they extended the invitation. I have a feeling we will be invited back because of the incredible popularity of Eurovision in Australia. There are rumours that we will be have an automatic invitation each year but won't ever be able to host it because it's rules said that it has to be hosted in Europe. Plus they are saying that it would be too expensive for some countries to have to fly to Australia and bring all of their equipment and support staff. That is fair enough and Australians are more than happy just to be able to compete.

Oh, if i had new that i would have supported Australia more! I thought it was just like Israel.

I'm sure that Ukraine won't have any problem inviting Australia. It would be absurd not doing so.

Georgia and Spain for me although the Spanish woman's wobbly knee dance was terrible!

Russia was very overrated and just a rip-off performance of last year. The Ukraine song was OK but not sure it was the best one of the night.

I was so shocked at how the UK did after the public vote. I just feel it didn't deserve just 8 measly points. It is a good song and a fun performance. Can't believe the Weird Al Yankovich Polish guy was at the bottom then got catapulted up the scoreboard.

The show overall though was brilliant. The hosts excellent and their songs were hilarious. Who knew the Swedes were so funny!

So, the ukranian victory is becoming a diplomatic confict in Russia. The Government spoke, there's a petition to see the real results to know if the victory was real or not, and the UHER (organizers of the festival) are considering showing Russia all the documents.

What a mess!

I didn't knowt that the festival was so incrdibly important in certain countries. In Spain is a gay event for freaks and most people laugh a it. We don't mind much if the song is at the bottom (well, die hard fans always got furious, but most of us simply don't care) but in other countries is THE EVENT and there's even special reports and tv programs after the semifinals, etc. Russia is one of those countries.

Interesting observation on the BBC site about how Poland went from bottom of the table to eighth place when the public vote came in - they thought it might be because there are so many Polish people in other countries who were able to vote for their own country as they were outside of it!

Can't believe the Russians are being so angry about this though! The fact they did so well is amazing given they were booed the last few years!

Eurovision Schlong Contest: The secret fetish porn past of Russian favourite

EUROVISION favourite Russia was last night caught in a fetish porn blunder after pictures emerged of its contestant seemingly posing for a series of explicit snaps.

Sergey Lazarev, 33, is seen sitting naked on a bed while menacingly holding a saw to the throat of a woman handcuffed to a radiator.

But the Kremlin dismissed claims its star man was a porn actor, insisting the images were taken to highlight domestic violence issues.

UPDATED 8 July:

6 Ukrainian cities are formally bidding to host next year's Eurovision Song Contest.

Dnipro
Has proposed 3 different venues: Dnipro Arena, the Meteor Stadium, and an unfinished indoor arena.

- Choosing the Dnipro Arena would require the construction of a roof.

- Choosing the Meteor Stadium would require significant renovation work, including the construction of a roof.

- Choosing the unfinished indoor arena would, obviously, require significant construction work, which would be privately financed, though.

Kharkiv
Has proposed the Metalist Stadium as venue. Choosing this venue would require the construction of a roof.

Kherson
Doesn't have any suitable venues. Therefore, local authorities have proposed constructing a new indoor arena, which would have to be financed mainly by the government, though.

Kyiv
Has considered 3 different venues: the Palace of Sports, the NSC Olympic Stadium, and the International Exhibition Centre.

Local authorities haven't announced which venues are included in the formal bid, but their first choce (Palace of Sports) isn't available.

Lviv
Has proposed 2 different venues: Arena Lviv and an unfinished indoor arena.

- Choosing Arena Lviv would require the construction of a roof.

- Choosing the unfinished indoor arena would, obviously, require significant construction work, which would be privately financed, though.

Odessa
Had proposed the Chornomorets Stadium as venue. If this venue is chosen, it will be temporarily covered by a tent structure during the contest.

The host city and venue will be chosen and announced no later than 1 August.

Btw, these are the criteria outlined for the selection of the host city:

- The venue must be fully covered by a roof and have a minimum capacity of 7,000 (preferably 10,000+).
- The host city must have at least 2,000 European standard and fairly priced hotel rooms located in the city centre or close to the arena.
- The host city must have modern transport infrastructure amd must be served by an international airport.

It appears that 6 Ukrainian cities are formally bidding to host next year's Eurovision Song Contest. The main issue would be the lack of suitable venues.

Dnipro

- Three proposed venues: Dnipro Arena, Meteor Stadium or an unfinished indoor arena.

Kharkiv

- Has proposed the Metalist Stadium as venue.

Kherson

- Considering the Krystal Stadium as venue.

Kyiv

- Has proposed the Palace of Sports as venue. However, this would Shakira the Division 1 World Championships in ice hockey to be either relocated or rescheduled.

Lviv

- Considering Arena Lviv as venue.

Odessa

- Considering the Chornomorets Stadium as venue.

Apart from the Palace of Sports (Kiev), choosing any of those venues would require significant construction work, including the addition of a roof.

Btw, these are the criteria outlined for the selection of the host city:

- The venue must be fully covered by a roof and have a minimum capacity of 7,000 (preferably 10,000+).

- The host city must have at least 2,000 European standard and fairly priced hotel rooms located in the city centre or close to the arena.

- The host city must have modern transport infrastructure amd must be served by an international airport.

Do any or all of the above fit the bill?
