    The Italian tune is fantastic. And the boom boom boom bit is obviously a reference to the workers bomb.

    That's a credible song and might go down well with a UK audience. In the vogue of some of the best female pop singers around with a real band instead of some sampled piece of 90s rave music that seems to pass as credible in some parts of the continent.

    I thought the Italians stopped going because it was getting so ridiculous (in the land of Berlosconi TV that's a scathing inditement).

    Agreed with one piece I read, who was expecting the worse from Englebert, turning up in leather trousers doing some sub Tom Jones sex bomb thing. But no its a dignified entry and he looks sharp and can still sing.

  6. Italy 4th favourite according to oddschecker http://www.oddschecker.com/specials/tv/eurovision/winner
    Is that a dig at me? :hmm: ;) I genuinely enjoy the rave-ish Ukraine tune - my favourite of those that have qualified. (I dont think it uses samples though)
    Dignified is a good way of putting it. I think (not 100%) that Englebert is the final song of the night, which makes sense in that it has something 'final' about it. I wasnt really joking about the lack of a drop though...it does do something at the end, but i doubt it does enough to get people really excited about it.

    It's a competitive sport. What's not to like? Channel hopping between Azerbaijan and the kicky-ballo in Norway with the singism being the more competitive I'll wager.

    First time I've heard this - definitely better than some of the pop idols we've put forward in the past, but I fear it's not memorable enough to win from 1st place (iyswim).

    Also sounds like he doesn't have the breathing for it.

    Definitely wasn't embarrassed by it as I have been in past years, was nice to actually have a half-way decent song up.

    They're really going to make the most of these pyrotechnics aren't they :D Can't wait for a gentle love ballad to be interrupted by 10ft flames :D

    We're not going to win :(
  28. FiFi

    FiFi Can never think of funny comments!

    OK, it was a harmless song, and some non-embarrassing dancers.
    Even if he doesn't win (and he won't) it hasn't shown us up too badly.
