    I watched it all night.
    I expected Ukraine to win when they started to get a lot of points.
    But then they lost [​IMG]
    But I voted for the Georgia girl. She looked cute [​IMG] + death metal guy in the song FTW

    I fail to see how this is "breaking news" seeing as it happened many hours ago.
    Anyway, Serbia deserved to win [​IMG].
    And [​IMG] at how the girl from the winning pair totally stole all the spotlight. She literally took the microphone from the presenter while the guy was talking.

    It is breaking news in Australia!

    I don't know when it really happened, but they just showed it here, and I didn't see any other thread about it.

    Here they are.

    Perhaps because we can't be in it ourselves.

    To represent France, they decided it was a good idea to ... no sing French
    Yeah, sure, totally logical [​IMG]

    Lol.......that is my main problem with Eurovision, i think that countries should sing in their actual languages.

    Says the Englishman!

    If English songs usually win (because many voters understand English), that would unfairly advantage England!

    Good point.........it's just that i think that countries should stay true to the main language spoken in their country.

    I was originally rooting for Israel, then when they didn't make it through I was rooting for Ireland. I'm glad for Azerbaijan though.

    I have to ask, why is Israel even in Eurovision?

    It seems odd to me, given they they aren't a part of Europe.

    If they can let Israel in, they shoul also be able to let Australia in.

    It's based on broadcasting area, not geographical. Morocco has entered before, and Iraq/Libya could technically enter too if they were EBU members.
