Eurovision follow up

So Norway won with a twee song that isn't really my thing, but had a catchy tune all the same. The UK did very well, especially compared to bland songs from recent years and came in 5th. The performance was excellent, but I still think we needed a stronger song. I thought the Iceland and Azerbaijan songs weren't bad and they came at the top of the pile. There were a couple of dud songs, but overall the standard seemed a bit higher than usual.

The voting was less political this year, so I might watch again next time!

The Russian winner from last year opened the event, the cute Dima Bilan who I find it not shy at taking his kit off...
