I felt the same way. The Portuguese guy is obviously ill with some ailment or other; I'm just surprised more people didn't pick up on it.
When I wrote that I'd only seen the Portuguese song on the recap as I'd missed it the first time around. Wasn't actually as bad as I first thought. Still wouldn't have had it in the top 5, but it wasn't that bad.
Very disappointing the UK only getting 12pts from the public vote.
Had no idea they weren't allowed to play any instruments. Good to see that the spirit of Eurovision involves stamping out any hint of musical talent.
The way he was stamping his foot I thought it was pretty obvious he wasn't playing live, but I'm disillusioned that Andrew Lloyd Webber wasn't playing the piano onstage in 2009. http://www.andtheconductoris.eu/index.htm?content/eoh.htm
Speaking of bottom:
Israel is leaving Eurovision. Should we follow suit? http://www.mirror.co.uk/tv/tv-news/israel-quits-eurovision-song-contest-10418390
I thought the Italian song sounded more Spanish than Italian.
That was one of the few songs I did hear and thought exactly the same thing. I've heard this before although I didn't know who sang the original.
There was one that started off quite a bit like Rag 'n' Bone Man too, can't remember who. Cyprus maybe?
Bloody hell. I didn't understand how Italy's song could lengthen in the odds so much. Rarely seems to happen.
So they shortened it! Well well.
