Recommended Posts

I guess that we will withdraw from the contest as we have very bad relationships with Israel, just like Russia with Ukraine...

they don't want because countries with strong diaspora will always do fine

Which is a good reason for jury voting. To be fair, no matter if Erdogan would send his mumbling grandma as Turkey's song, the Dutch televoting would still result in a ton of points for Turkey simply because there are a ton of Turkish people living here.

"Thank you for celebrating diversity bla bla..."...

 

Jesus, can it just once be a song contest and not some political message or whatever? :lol:

Yeah, well apparently not as even after winning the contest one of the first things the singer says is "Let's meet at JERUSALEM next year."

Surely. Songs have different meanings that could resonate with different people, this year I liked some songs with "messages" such as France and Ireland, but also some others that maybe didn't have much "meaning" such as Bulgaria.

 

The thing is (and I already said this), I don't think Israel won because of "diversity" or whatever. It won because of the cray - somehow it entertained voters more than any other song. Cyprus could have won but I guess the final performance hut her chances (and, honestly, I don't think that would be such a great winner either).

 

But way better than this chicken noise...

In conclusion, as I said several times in this thread: TAISC's quality was better :evil:

Can't they just abolish the jury voting? 

 

Why? They voted better than the people?

it is probably true, but i would say at least 70% of all votes come as diaspora votes anyway

Honestly I don't see much difference, they're both entertaining songs but hardly winners. Austria was my last hope among the top 5.
