|Yep, its that time of the year again...either you had invited friends around or you spended the night out. |
The annual music-fest that is the Eurovision song contest was on May 24th, and will have, no doubt, the required number of doo doo dahs, mournful ballads, and cheesy unintelligible rock numbers with risqué wardrobe changes. But in recent years there has also been a fair share of less serious entrants, this year Spain and Ireland among them. So should countries that no longer seem to take the contest seriously be asked to stay at home and leave the stage for serious songsters only?

I enjoyed the Eurovision in the past, when all countries sang in their own language. Once a year you had the opportunity to listen to music from other countries in languages you rarely hear. I liked that. Today it is just all more or less the same. Everyone sings in English, and quite often with ridiculous songs and routines. I would not disqualify them though, because in the end these songs were chosen to represent their country and if they are on a low level, it simply reflects badly on themselves.
