The Eurovision Song Contest 2012

Anybody going to be watching this later? HarryHoskins started a good thread for last year's programme, so I'm hoping he'll be back again this year to emcee.

Just off to check our Engelbert's entry on Youtube.

Evening, mirandashell. I was hoping you'd be back too. I'll catch you later for Eurovision - I'm currently watching The Voice whilst reading the Guardian live blog and the BBC POV thread (& keeping an eye on things here too, lol!).

Aw, that's a shame, Ben. We've just had

01 United Kingdom

and now we're on to

02 Hungary

Is there any way you can catch it somehow on the internet? (I'm not sure whether you'll have access to the BBC's iPlayer - it might just be available for people in the UK?

The Hump did good, and I thought Hungary's entry was quite catchy.

Next up is

03 Albania

This woman has veeeery strange hair - she's made a necklace out of it. How bizarre!

Now we have

04 Lithuania

Is the glittery blindfold a fashion statement??

Ah, he's just sung 'Love is blind' so I'm guessing it's representative of the song. O-kaaaay.

He reminds me a bit of a young John Barrowman (I think it's the cheeky eyes, now he's got the blindfold off).
