My Love For Eurovision

This past Saturday night, Brit Boy and I watched an annual favorite around the Yellow House...the Eurovision Song Contest! :-) It’s always great fun to watch and see what everyone has to offer. It is always intriguing to me to see people from so many places. And here’s a quirk I have, while I’m watching I’m wondering what everybody’s life is like on Monday morning after all of this. I’m just intrigued to know how others day to day lives in other countries are. One question that goes through my mind is...what does everyone have for breakfast? That would be so interesting to know! I love knowing about people!

Okay, I’ll now escort all of you good people out of my head and get back to the contest. LOL. I want to start this off by saying that I hope that all of the videos are viewable. Fingers crossed ;-)

Anyway, I’ve enjoyed watching the contest each year since I’ve been living here in England. My favorite performer still is this guy from a couple of years back who won the contest. He was so excited and this song still sticks in my head. It was all beautifully surreal. Check Alexander out in my post from two years ago.

This year was as entertaining as always. I give everybody credit for trying and it’s great fun to sit back and watch it all. One of my favorite acts this year was from Moldova. They were beautifully eccentric (my kind of folks) and I just love that they were rocking the hats! The girl on the unicycle is just epic. They just really went for it! Check them out below.



My absolute favorites were the ladies from Serbia. They were working it Motown style and I love all of that. Go ladies! ;-) I couldn’t understand the words, but it didn’t matter. That’s the great thing about music...it translates no matter what! Have a listen to them below...



The winners were from Azerbaijan and they had an okay song. They were very laid back. Congrats to them.



As I said before, it’s always an entertaining night of television so I thought I’d share it with you all.

Television is one of those things that can offer a shared cultural experience, such as watching Eurovision. In order to share in those experiences, it's important to have easy access to all the entertainment options available. One of the best ways to take advantage of the options out there is to sign up for one of the Virgin Media Packages that are on offer. They offer many different packages to satisfy pretty much every viewing need. Have a look for yourself and get ready to enjoy!

Hi Dori, what a funny thing, but just last night I watched some videos that my sister sent me about the Eurovision contest, because I missed it(I am not a great fan of it, I admit it, my sister told me her favourite song was from Serbia (the same as you) and related to me I thought the blond man from France had a great voice but which I really like it was the winner song from Arzeibaijan, I love this song, I have even put it in one of my blogs and just for once I absolutely agree with the jury!

Hugs and kisses!

Instant noodles. I had instant noodles as breakfast this morning, in Malaysia.

Nieves,
Your sister and I think alike :) I thought the man from France was good too and I think unappreciated. It's so great to get someone else's take.

Buzzing J,
Cool. See that's what I truly want to know. I think that's one of those things that's interesting to know about everybody. Thanks for sharing that and by the way, I had scrambled eggs this morning ;-)
