‘Tears of a thousand people are played on my guitar’ – Joci Pápai

 

Eurovision Second Semi Final was very classic Eurovision – mostly not my favorite songs – Switzerland didnt go through sadly – loved the incredible yellow dress. Wish songs were sung in own languages which the Hungarian was.

The final song was from Isreal and made me smile.

Eurovision – First Semi Final .. Portugal, Latvia, Moldovia, Belgium and many more

 

 

 

Thought Portugal was very sweet – singing in the center of the crowd. Love the Saxophone playing of Moldovia – not sure about the lyrics
Latvia didnt go through – only 10 of 18 in each semifinal go through plus the big 5.

The staging of all of them was amazing.

One more Semi Final this week and Final on Saturday
Please someone give Great Britain  – ‘Douze Points’ on Saturday

Bulgaria – If Love was a Crime – Eurovision 2016


Of all the 25 or 26 songs, this is the one still in my head and the fluorescent kneepads.. but perhaps Eurovision is about more than the song, the lyrics, politics.. its about a slightly crazy family expressing its feelings and not to be taken seriously.

Thank you for the countrys who did vote for the UK, especially the ‘Douze Points’ from Malta. Loved all the songs in different ways and the presenters and Sweden were awesome except for one ‘bad joke’ – Petra, perhaps you can lend your support to Mental Health Awareness week –  16th-22nd May.

Thank you Australia and Justin Timberlake from one crazy fan for making the trip and Graham Norton – you are filling big shoes but you make us laugh almost as much.

We miss you Terry Wogan.
