Not to make you feel old but that was before I was born! :)

It was probably before most on here were born, but I stay on to annoy them every now and again. :-)) {-) %% :kiss:

My wife turned it over near the end (but nowhere near enough the end)
We caught Jedward in it's entirity - fascinatingingly dreadful.
Ireland is full of talented singers and dancers - and we get Jedward

Is Miss World still televised? I always seemed to opt for Miss Uraguay or Miss Venezuala.

Coming last in Eurovision is like a badge of honour like an ASBRO is to young hooligans.

Great News!!!!.
Just think of the stupid expense involved staging this "event". Winning the thing twice on the trot just about bankrupted Ireland.
So are the "winners" all going to come from despotic oil-rich enclaves in the future? And since when was Aberdjan (sounds Welch) become part of "Europe". But if Israel is now "European" then perhaps Afghanistan, Pakistan (and all the other "stans") ...and India...will decide they are also "European". Mind boggling. I wonder how China will cope with EU law when they also decide to become European. Perhaps the US will widen the Panama Canal to about 200 miles and retreat into even more "xxxxx" gazing. BY.

Your right Bryan - and the term Europe/an are becoming total nonesense. It's all down to politicians though.
Turkey was hell bent on joining the Euro when I was there but all the ordinary Turks I spoke to were horrified by the prospect.

I haven't taken an interest in the Eurovision song contest since Sandie Shaw won it in 1967. I did see a short clip of this year's show on the news and I have to agree with most of the comments posted here. I'm very thankful that I didn't watch the whole show.

Hi Peter

Do you have comparable events in your hemisphere?

Not on an international level such as Eurovision, Dave, but we do have such things as "Australia's Got Talent", "The Voice" and several others, most of which are based on overseas shows. I have to admit that I don't watch any of them, although some great talent has been unearthed. Perhaps it's a "generation gap" thing :-) as they are very popular.

Must be the generation thing.  %%
I cannot stand them either.   They come a close second to so called 'Game shows"    >>:-(

Ah, SirTerry - His Tog work continues unabated by retirement

If you're looking for someone with whom to compare symptoms or even a soulmate who also wears a lot of beige, this could be just the thing.

TOGS.ORG brings you a free chance of meeting an equally bewildered curmudgeon.

I can see Dave you like your women dark haired & very mysterious. Being from Ireland & I might add very musical, I think most of todays music is rubbish(note the English influence "rubbish") here in Canada we say garbage. Mick B.

Hi Mick

Spot on with my darker women - Blondes do nothing for me.....
and I've asked several, believe me  {-)

I can never figure when an Irish guy says English if he means English or means British?
Garbage isn't American as the earliest known usage of the word garbage in English
dates from the 15th century but I think it derives from the french Garbe or Garbelage
maybe? The modern term is of course Eurovision O0

Can anyone recall It's A Knockout / Jeux Sans Frontières.

I do recall the diminutive Stuart Hall laughing his socks off at the giant budgies along with the even stumpier Eddie Waring seen from the balcony of the Blackpool Open Air Baths when I was looking after the land lines on outside broadcast duties.  The Italian coach screaming "Avanti! Avanti! Avanti!" to absolutely no purpose whatsoever.  Memories.
I wonder if there is a rule that presenters should be able to jump up and down under a table?
