If you want to shine at Eurovision you need something more than ok. On the positive this tune is marketed towards a younger audience but hey it doesn't set the world on fire.

There is literally not even one song on the whole list that pops. Maybe I've not heard enough. There's nothing I've downloaded anyhow. Maybe these tunes will come alive in the event.

That MOVIE Guy

I heard the winning Ukraine song. I don't know about you but I found it horrid. I know it's about the war and everything but he song is so melodramatic. It's not like a Eurovision winner. I think it was a very PC political choice in the end and Eurovision is supposed to be just about a cracking good tune.

I thought political songs were not allowed in Eurovision. I think this song was clearly political. It was ok but not that good. I thought Australia were amazing.

The new result system was quite dramatic to watch, great idea from them. Just a shame it produced the worst winner in years.

It was a historic subject that's how they got in. I liked their song. Plus it's votes at the end of the day, it's like getting mad at election results.

I don't get that people say that 1944 is not a strong song. I am still listening to it. But it's better when you actually watch 1944. That lament in the middle gives me chills. The whole song reminds me of Kate Bush.

Can't argue about taste of course some people love the song including the people who wrote and sang it. But this would not win if it was not for political heat. Let me break it down. Russia because of the Ukranian situation and the gay rights situation has no favour with anybody. Ukraine sings an anti Russia song and they get all the votes. Never mind if its abiout something from 70 years back the message is clear. Now I agree with them that Russia has a horrible record but Eurovision is the one place where politics are kept OUT and where people just come together and everything is about entertainment and just making good songs. That rule was broken on Saturday whatever anybody says, it was broken.

The Justin Timberlake spot was so wrong. Whats that got to do with Eurovision pls? Jut because he's a big star. He was moving like he wants to be 17 but nobody is convinced, he was so slow with it lol. So for Eurovision how many European artists would love to be on that stage? Do a single from a previous winner. I wanted the whole night to be so much more. Did not help Britain lost miserably.
