People laughed at me this time last week for thinking Ryan O'Shaughnessy had a chance… Then apparently he became the bookies' third-favourite… Then ended up finishing way down the chart anyway! :lol:
Well done Israel anyway! The song's really grown on me since I made that post four days ago, even if my parents still hate it! :mrgreen:

Good brag.
Nicely done. :fou:

I'm a little sour about Israel winning because they've been pretty open and upfront about wanting to use the contest to basically whitewash themselves and turn it into a propagandic shitshow, and I liked that people told Russia to fuck off with that back in 2016. It was kinda satisfying to see that they threw in the towel on trying to outraise the competition this year. :mrgreen:

But obviously that doesn't have anything to do with the actual artist herself and I thought she carried the performance really well, when they played the highlight reel of all the tracks it was very obvious how she stood out from the rest of the pop competitors. I didn't really have a favourite personally, I liked Hungary and Austria came through much better in the live peformance, but nothing I'm planning to return to now that it's over.

LOL that was fucking awful, I loved how they kept doubling down on their little snake dance thing like they thought that was gonna be the cool new trend that would spark off from their song.

It was a metaphor for the bullies that mocked her in school, the point was that she was mocking them back in the same way they did to her with a "now I'm at Eurovision and more successful than any of you" context.

Apparently the "real music" crowd was very offended but I'm still surprised there's apparently people who go into Eurovision thinking they're about to witness high-brow professional music making, there were like 15 derivative radio pop singles and at least two dabs. :roll:

Indeed, I should have figured that. Well, I liked it anyway!

That sucks indeed, and is why I couldn't bring myself to vote for the song. Also I know over the next year now we're gonna have people on the radio yammering our ears off about boycotting the contest, but no way will that be acted on. :roll:

Never watched Eurovision before (nor did I this time) but I’ve heard a lot of talk about it and ended up watching the winning performance, and the UK’s performance with the interruption. I thought they were both quite bad, Israel’s was kind of over the top and the lyrics were pretty unimaginative, though it was still better than the incredibly generic UK entry.
Israel was fun to watch though and I’m sure that plays a large part in who wins.

Oh Jesus... fuck that! Holy shit, that Gromee guy looked like a fucking retarded dork with that smile on his face. The song wasn't interesting, but I wonder if we would do better if the other guy sang on pitch...
