Yes, it’s that time of year again, and The Bloke and I have got the snacky treats ready. It’s the Eurovision final, and I’m teaming up with Hugh (Hugh’s Views and News) and Helen (Journey to Ambeth) for a Twitter-fest during the show. Normally, we would be joined by Steve (Steve Says), but he’s decided that our company isn’t good enough this year and has gone to the live show in Stockholm (of course, I’m not jealous in the slightest).
Last year, the UK entry was so awful I was under no illusions that we would do badly. However, this year, Joe and Jake’s song has grown on me and I’m genuinely hoping that they do well. It’s a catchy song, the lads have worked hard and seem like lovely people, and deserve some success from it. I can’t vote for them, but I’m wishing them lots of luck! There are a number of surprisingly good songs being performed in the final, so it’s a close race.
So, ladies and gents, here are my points for tonight.
One point goes to… Belgium (Laura Tesoro – What’s The Pressure). Sounds remarkably similar to Fleur East’s Play That Sax.
Two points go to… Poland (Michal Szpak – Colour Of Your Life). He’s clearly been adopting his inner Conchita.
Three points go to… Sweden (Frans – If I Were Sorry)
Four points go to… France (Amir – J’ai Cherche)
Five points go to… Russia (Sergey Lazarev – You Are The Only One). I like this song, but they have blatantly ripped off the staging from Sweden’s entry last year. This one will do much better than I’m suggesting, but I’m going to find it interesting how it will be hosted in Russia next year if it wins.
Six points go to… Lithuania (Donny Montell – I’ve Been Waiting For This Night)
Seven points go to… Italy (Francesca Michielin – No Degree of Separation)
Eight points go to… Ukraine (Jamala – 1944). I hate this song, but this is the sort of stuff that always does well.
Ten points go to… Australia (Dami Im – Sound of Silence). The best voice in the whole competition.
Twelve points go to… Israel (Hovi Star – Made Of Stars). I don’t think it will win, but I like this one very much.
Go and check out Steve’s and Hugh’s points and predictions too! Happy Eurovision!
Awesome! Can’t wait 😀
I remember hanging on every note as a teenager. Brings back fun memories!
I’ve watched it every year since the 90’s… It’s the third best time of the year (after the start of the summer holidays and Christmas)
I remember that same feeling. We were on pins and needles.
This year was even bigger, and so many of my friends are still in tears!!
That Australian number was spectacular! She puts me in mind of a cross between Pink, Katy Perry and Celine Dion. LOVE the outfit. Best of luck to everyone.
She’s got such a great voice hasn’t she!!!

Oh! Interesting. We only chose 4 the same. Looking forward to it so much, especially as Helen is joining us.
Tweet to you later.
Yay! In a bit!
I’m rooting for Ireland. Are they winning? Hopefully, they sent U2 to compete this year… 🙂
Haha! Apologies for the late reply Austin. Ireland didn’t even make the finals unfortunately!
What’s the craic? Why are the voters always giving out to the Irish!
Haha! Someone’s been spending lots of time with the Irish methinks! 😉
You’re being mental now! 🙂
Enjoy your evening, sorry I can’t join you, there’s an awesome tennis match going on. See you when the Winner’s announced. Blessings Joy
Thanks Joy, enjoy the tennis!
I didn’t like the Ukrainian entry either, but I’m not surprised it won.
Me neither – it’s a depressing and political song, so it was bound to do well….
This is amazing!!! Hoping to join the elite group of tweeters this year!!😄
You’re more than welcome to join! I think Steve is going again this year…
I’d love to go again, but not sure I’d want to go to Ukraine
Yeah me neither at the minute – I’ll just watch it on the tv
