    Ok, so Jade will be singing 'My Time' composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber.....it is shiteous as most Eurovision tunes tend to be, but I pissed myself laughing at this clip...she is announced the winner, sings the song again, and is 'overcome' by emotion....hilarious....

    Does it even matter what it sounds like?

    That last place is assured!

    Look it up on Wiki flashy.....it's pretty dire, meaningless, and camp, although ABBA had their breakthrough here in Brighton by winning the Eurovision back in the 70's with 'Waterloo'. The contest has become heavily politically biased, and Western European countries, especially Britain, almost always come in the bottom 5....I believe that was what Xcuse was trying to say....:cool:.
    Anyway, you really wouldn't want to waste your time with it mate, though it's alright after a few bevvies.....

    Can't have Eurovision without Lordi. Who else will strike down the prophets of false?

    I actually love the song because I find it just so over-the-top and nothing like the usual ballad crap. It's also got a catchy tune.

    I'm feeling good this weekend. Nothing I can really do until Tuesday anyway so I'm just taking my pills and enjoying myself.

    Ohh! She's so pretty! =)

    I had to watch it with the volume off though, so I was unable to hear her sing.

    There is no point in the Eurovision song contest at all anyway its totally meaningless none of the perferomers hardly ever go on to do anything in the form of a sucessful music career. The acts that usually win anyway are terriable and cant sing to save their lives and due to the fact the majority of countries in Europe that have a vote would never vote for the UK anyway it doesnt matter how talented our entrant was we still wouldnt win it.
