Ahhh Eurotrash, how I missed thee
What a night, and it was only the Eurovision semi final. Which means double the trash and one third the tedium for voting time. Must pace myself in preparation for Sunday night's extravaganza. The biggie. The one where "Le Royame Uni gets nul pwa".
Unexpected guests arrived after song three last night, Vidman and Mrs Vid. Commentary and confusion ensued. Couldn't join in the drinking game because Mrs Vid is gestating a lifeform.
Hubbs: Have they got enough people on stage?
Me: Eurovision trivia: They're only allowed six people on stage.
Vidman: It all looks very eighties (drink!)
Me: (Song 4, Andorra, with the "Rueben-esque waitress-singer and slut dancers) They're not getting thorugh. (I was right)
Me: (Song 6, Belgium, with lightsabres and men in corsets) They're through (I was wrong)
Ukraine's entry was a flat-out copy of last year's winner, Greece. same kind of song, same dress with a cossak twist. (drink!)
Mrs Vid: (On Finland's entry) They look like they're out of Buffy.
Vidman: Or Klingons.
Me: Or when Klingon cousins breed.
Hubbs: I can't stop counting the people on stage now.
Netherlands used an invented language - (drink!)
Lituania's entry: We are the winners of Eurovision. Vote! (drink!)
Vidman: They're a bit up themselves.
Me: They won't get through (but they did!)
Estonia: Riffs of Abba's Does Your Mother Know.
Me: They'll get through (wrong again!)
Mrs Vid: They're wedding singers.
Iceland's Silvia Night closes the evening with pastiche, awful singing, a double strip for her and the dancers and raucous boos from the crowd. (Drink!!!!)
Through to the final:
Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia,
Like I said, have to pace myself for tomorrow night, it's gonna be HUUUUUUUGE!
