This song is like a 6 year old kid got told by his mom "Eat your vegetables Timmy, they'll make you grow big and strong, girls love that. You want to be popular with girls don't you?" genuinely believed it and made it his entire personality lmao

It didn't make the Grand Final, thank fuck, but this shit did, at the expense of several much better ACTUAL songs:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FJjo8s3fKUM

Subwoolfer, "Give that Wolf a Banana" (yes, really), from Norway, of all things...

Funny, sure, but they're really just aping Daft Punk or Deadmaus (the whole, "hidden identity" + not talking + space alien thing, which I would argue Bowie did better, decades prior)...

Oh, and here's a song by a literal junior ER doctor, representing Greece (but she's actually Norwegian, because of course she is. Thanks Eurovision.) about dying of Covid. Yes, really...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PgiKktnFJIA

Amanda Tenfjord - "Die Together" (I know, I know)...

Yes, I watch this shit, sometimes... Some years, anyway. Because it can be (occasionally) somewhat... "Entertaining", and there can be some decent songs, very rarely... And because it's a good "excuse" to get drunk/have a party (if you're in Europe)... I realise Americans don't really... "Get" Eurovision. And I totally admit that the voting, hosting, and... General "degeneracy" and faggotry/trooooooonnnery which predominates the winning songs, or has, in the last couple of decades at least, is pretty damn cringe, but... May as well enjoy the dying days of the West, I guess??

The fact that the degenerate faggotry has even made it into former Warsaw pact nations, though (or at least, the "acts" selected by their goddamn public broadcasters/national competitions)..?? That's, uhh, somewhat unfortunate, to say the least...

Only like half of Eastern Europe holding the fort, anymore. The rest have just... Given in, rather unfortunately. But perhaps inevitably...

Yup! There's a whole text block coming about it, lol...

Stupid comment didn't post, ha.

I'll try to post it again now.

I assume you didn't watch the semis, but it was so bad, man... Like, the worst in years.

Australia sent, let's say, an extremely camp fag, who has based his whole "identity" around being very gay, being autistic, being fat, and covering his face at all times, literally with a set of knives during national "selection" (which was openly rigged), SMH... And somehow "he" made the final, at the expense of a number of actually decent songs, not sung by hyper-camp fags...

I honestly just can't even take the piss, at this point, it's all so absurd...

Let's be honest, it doesn't matter who makes the final. Ukraine will win, by a landslide, and the whole thing is pointless because of it. I'm so sure of that, I gave my family money to bet on them to win before they even won the semi-final.

I feel bad for the people of Turin, who had their city's big moment turned into Kiev's propaganda.

This will be the only thing Ukraine wins all year.

To be fair, Turin (or the host broadcaster, anyway) hired Mika, Mika (remember him, from like, more than a decade ago??), as the main host, who not only isn't Italian, but appears to not even be able to speak Italian, so...

I get the feeling that they may not have given too much of a shit, even from the beginning, if the only criteria for hosting was "washed up, semi-famous and gay", lol...

Last year was a tranny. This year it's Mika...

Also the fact that Rome didn't even bother putting in a final bid, to host, despite the fact that Maneskin are from Rome, and specifically said they wanted the contest to be held there (never mind that it has hosted before, and has a suitable venue ready)...

So... I really don't think Italy, or indeed Turin, care all that much (the public, maybe, but certainly, seemingly, not the people who put the money into it)...

Though I agree that it is likely a foregone conclusion, yes. Despite how much I generally dislike their song, and the pink furry hat, lol...

Ah well, at least your family might make some money on it, then! Though given how short the odds must have been, I can't imagine it will be much money, sadly, ha...

I would probably go with Spain, as second favourite, from what I have seen, so far. But honestly, who knows? Anything that isn't rap, or the faggy degeneracy described above, gets my vote. Almost literally anything...

Although honestly, if the Netherlands "anthem to depression" or Greece's "anthem to dying of Covid (together)", win, I just might fucking end myself, lol... Coz fuck that shit.

Oh God, I barely remember who that is. Scraping the bottom of the barrel then scraping the ground below it.

The people there do care, not so much about the show, but just about having a major event in their city again. There hasn't been one since the Winter Olympics in 2008. (Interesting fact, I was there.)

The odds were something like 6/11. Ukraine are overwhelming favorites because even a blind man can see it will be rigged for them.

Covid is old news, I doubt Greece will win. They'll fail like their economy did a decade ago.

Not sure why you’re being downvoted for this…

Greek fascists here (honestly wouldn’t surprise me, at this point), perhaps..??

Or the people who genuinely seem to follow you around and downvote literally whatever your comment may be, I suppose, lol…

But yeah. Agreed.

Haha I don’t understand those odds, though! We don’t do odds like that, here… It’s essentially $1.00 means guaranteed victory, $2.00 means sort of a 50% chance, etc.

So say a team is very likely to win, it will be $1.10 (the lowest odds you will ever really see), whereas a complete upset would be… $5.50, or $6.00, maybe.

Interestingly, I’m not sure how that would work in the system you guys use!

I think Ukraine would probably be at ~$2.00, here, say, but I would have to check…

But you do win “national selection” for Eurovision, apparently!! 😂

Which is just… Kind of sad. Even for a country of like, 2.5 million, lol… 🥦🥬🥑🥕👎🏼🤢

This is still more masculine than modern American male ads
