    Celine Dion was in it once, before she was famous. I think she represented Switzerland.

    The UK deciding show is on tmrw! YAY! There are 6 acts to choose form this year (last year it was 3). We need to pick someone decent, so we can get at least un point.

    TATY represented Russia least year (Dogboy, i expect you'll comment on that), and they were bitches in rehersal, and they said that riga (where it was held) was shit, and stuff like that. So they got booed and whisteled at during the performance, and booed whenever they scored high points. ANway they came 3rd, which is bad for them. They sounded shit tho.

    The rules:

    The song must be written by someone of the country it represents (it can be sung my anyone). The song must be original, in either French, English, or any of the countries own languages (and any combination of the previously mentioned languages). The song must be sung LIVE.

    The only interesting part is when the points are given. At least (!) 9 out of 10 songs are pure garbage.

    The most depressing part is when the presenters start talking...

    You mean visakho? I haven't heard the other one (hmm I don't think I've heard it, anyway).
    Well, what can I say. Fantastic voice. 'She's got a fine set of lungs on her, that girl' as my mother would say
    I kind of sort of like the song. But the style is a bit too 'Celine Dion'-like for my tastes.

    Yes, you could vote as much as you wanted, but not for your own country

    ..

    They call the Russian girl Avril Lavignsky.... Silly people, she's not Polish!
    and what would Avril Lavignsky have to do with Polish? j/w

    Honestly, I think Eurovision is the crappiest thing ever, it's so commercialised!!! I've always thought the idea of the whole thing was to promote orginial European music, yet the truth is you rarely have a chance to get a better place if you're not singing in English.

    It's a common misconception that Russian names end in -sky. The suffix sky isn't even spelt like that in russian, it's -skiy ( -ский). The suffix -sky is found in almost all Polish names. Therefore Avril Lavignsky to me sounds like a Polish singer who is similar to Avril Lavigne, not a Russian singer. They should have said Avril Lavignova. That would have been a better Russification of the name.

    Actually, in Polish it would've been LavignskA 'cause it's the femine suffix, the -ski thing is used for males only. Besides, it ain't that popular, I mean, of course there are plenty of surnames that end like that, but you can find just as much with different suffixes. Though most probably the -ski/ska suffix would have ben called a "typical" one.
    ahh well, not that it matters

    Dunno, in London there are a lot of people with polish names and the women still end -ski.
