    According to that BBC article Britain last won the Eurovision Song Contest 15 years ago with a song by somebody and the Waves. I have forgotten the singer's name in the few minutes since I read it. I don't remember that song or that 'we' won it.

    I do remember Englebert Humperdinck though - who could forget such a name. I vaguely remember his middle of the road style of singing. I suppose if we must dignify the contest by entering it it might as well be by a long forgotten one time well-known ballad singer.

    I would prefer that Britain did not enter this abysmal contest. All the songs are just "Jiggy jiggy pling plong" repeated over and over again. I have not watched the programme since I left my parent's home and I wish it would go away. The song that wins gets played on the air for a while but is usually soon forgotten.

    Let's forget the contest, it has no bearing on music outside of its own competition.

    Divisive Cotton Now I just have my toy soldiers

    Fucking hell, talk about a forgotten blast from the past

    He's was bloody shit in the 60s so I doubt if 40 years would have aged his style well

    Oddly, on one British tour he had the Jimi Hendrix Experience supporting him

    Still, it is the Eurovision Song Contest and clearly the British selectors are entering into the spirit of the event by showing that they have a sense of humour

    Frankly, I couldn't give a toss about the UK's entry, but Eurovision is a televisual highlight each year for me. :cool:

    Yeah but why would we want to win the flaming Eurovision? We'll get saddled with hosting it next year now.

    Can Engelbert Humperdinck free Azerbaijan?

    "Release Me" would take on a certain poignancy in a country with dozens of political prisonershttp://www.economist.com/blogs/easternapproaches/2012/03/eurovision-song-contest#

    But some activists hope that when he showcases his crooning in Baku in Azerbaijan on May 26th, the event will be made memorable for another reason. With some 120m people expected to tune in, they want to highlight the country’s deteriorating human-rights record.

    Azerbaijan's government is spending a great deal of money tarting up its capital for the contest. The contest will take place in the new Baku Crystal Hall, a gleaming 23,000-seat arena. But a new report from Human Rights Watch highlights the abuses that were committed along the way. Local authorities expropriated houses and evicted residents with scant regard for due process or the rights of homeowners....

    Perhaps we could use the Azerbaijan government's human rights record as an excuse to boycott the song contest and so avoid the embarrassment of having a seventy year old ballad singer as our representative.

    I think if we just didn't enter this year, people would forget about it next year and we could be free of this television nightmare for ever.

    Shreddy Please. Take some off my cheek.

    Hugh Laurie's accent as "House" sounds like my uncle from Seattle.

    Adele is actually quite svelte.

    Engel...Engel...fuck me. You fucking Englanders are weird :facepalm:

    Television nightmare? It's one night, on one channel. Not only are there lots more channels now a days, but there are plenty of other ways to keep yourself occupied.

    It is not just the one night, it is the build up over many weeks, even months and it pervades other media, the news, radio programmes, newspapers, magazines and becomes a topic of conversation. Begone I say. Let's have no more of this twaddle.

    Like picking the shittest song and seeing if you can successfully masturbate before it finishes. If not, you have to proclaim NIL POIT over and over in a loud manner whilst you scrub your nipples with a brillo pad as you cry bitter tears of shame.
