Watched Eurovision tonight, which was fun (and not exactly… - John C. Kirk — LiveJournal
May. 25th, 2003
Watched Eurovision tonight, which was fun (and not exactly intellectually demanding). However, I was a bit surprised when we came last (the only country to get 0 points) - while our song was pretty bad, it wasn't the worst, so I suspect that the voting has more to do with recent events in Iraq. I.e. the rest of Europe hates us for siding with America. Oh well. The slightly embarrassing aspect is that we don't get relegated next year, due to putting large amounts of money into the contest... On a more positive note, I personally liked the entry from the Netherlands (which I actually voted for), as well as Iceland and Croatia.
