I just found a live webcast of your delicious, delicious crackness in time to see Ireland's entry. Oh, Ireland.
Now I know what my sister meant.
I am so glad to see Eurovision has not changed at all. Time cannot change all things!
Anyone who wants can see it live here: http://www.eurovision.tv/addons/mediaplayer/live/esctv.html
You need to download a viewer but it takes seconds and it is so worth it. If you've never seen Eurovision, you will see Europe as you've never seen it before. You will never be the same again.
ETA: Macedonia upped the ante with dancers doing meaningful things in the background, but Slovenia answered with a vampire lady singing about something gothic. I think. Bad Hungary, your song is relatively boring and normal. I think you've missed the point.
ETA 2: Without downloading anything you can see the videos here: http://www.eurovision.tv/addons/mediaplayer/
Also Yasu Maria
? Another great entry in Eurovision tradition! With dancers too. You get extra points for dancers.
ETA 3: Georgia get 9 million points for having dancers with swords!
ETA 4: France! OMG! The guy in pink dancing around like Pee Wee Herman! How? Why? What?
ETA 5: I think Germany
might be trying to rely on actual talent. This is probably a mistake. They should have gone the Russian schoolgirl route. Sorry I posted about Serbia before I realized they were going for the ever powerful lesbian/cross dressing vote.
ETA 6: Ukraine: crossdressing android things in silver! You have surpassed France and I didn't think that was possible.
ETA 7: The Bulgarian singer had some voice. And I thought it was actually quite good in a mad gothic sort of way. But Turkey goes back to the ever popular glitter theme. Pah, you are all amateurs compared to Ukraine.
