Who's watching the finals in few days? Serbia & Montenegro isn't participating which is why Croatia is in our place, in the finals. I'm not sure who am I going to be with; Greece, Croatia, Spain or Bosnia.
What about you?

I don't know... Some years I watch it, some years I don't...
I heard there was lot of trouble in your selection between Serbia & Montenegro... Some kind of a fight... and that now you're splitting up...

As for this year: I don't like any of the songs, but I would love to have UK as a winner because of their lyrics... :)

The British contestant is a laughable rap act, seriously lame. When I heard the song I just cringed, but I'm sure he thinks he's 'keeping it real'. Keep an eye out for him, I guarantee it will make you smile :D

I sense another 'nil points' on the horizon for us...

I'm sure they do. :p
But I won't bothered to watch the semi-final. And when the final show is on TV, I'll be heading back home.
Maybe I can find a TV on the ship though...

OMG someone give us brits votes.

Wait until you see our entry. It is a pop/rap song with children dressed as school girls dancing around a person who can only be described as a 40 year old male tramp. And it isnt even catchy.

I hate Eurovision and OMFG What is our entry! HAve you seen it its the biggest piece of crap ever! Nill Pwa onece again. ALthough i dont care. We are hated throughout Europe so will never win.

Well if Scotland entered seperatly we would beat england/UK. Its england that is unpopular not wales/n.ireland/scotland.

part of the problem is that all those countries in the east vote for each other and that keeps all the points in that region. We are geographically isolated, our only friend is ireland. The UK should enter different songs for each country then we could for for each other.

I like the Icelandic and Russian songs!

The Icelandic one is extremely catchy, I can't get it out of my head! :hea:

UK isn't unpopular...

It's second on the list of most winning countries...

Though I did read somewhere that they speak of UK as big losers: many times good songs, but almost never good enough; 15 second places! :)

Well I like your lyrics...
And if you think your song is bad, you haven't heard ours... It's one of the worst songs in my life...

Because the of the 'great' British empire basically, we messed up alot o places, especially Ireland! God knows why they side with us in Eurovision. The english ruined Ireland and cuased all this stuff going on there. History lesson for ya :D

did you hear about that strange one? I saw it on the news, I think it was Finland. Its a bunch of mid life crisis men dressed as demon warriors. Apparently there was a big debate and people didnt want to let them enter because they are satanist or something.

Yeah I know, it always happens between Croatia, Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia and Montenegro...

We were so close last year, but Ruslana had to win :p

Why do u hate it? I think a majority of Yugoslavs will vote for Severina. The song is quite catchy, and Seve is a huge movie star here as well :vlol:

Yes, it's true, but just because some people rather vote for their neighbours than for the good performers...

Btw, by saying yugoslavs, you probably meant citizens of former Yugoslavia; because none of the yugoslavias are there anymore. The first one was gone in 1991. and the second one in 2003.

Semi-finals are on the 18th and the finals on the 20th :)

I haven't heard any of the songs so far. I'm looking forward to watching/hearing the irish song because I love Brian Kennedy :) As for our entry... I prefer not to make any comments :whi:

LOL! Now that makes three of us :p (along with Eleanna). I don't say that it's totally rubish, but the procedure of selecting the song was!

Nicky
14-05-06, 22:54
To be absolutely honest, I hate our song :rolleyes: :D We had a chance this year that the contest is held here, to send a genuinely greek song with pure greek rhythm, orchestration and lyrics, so as to show what Greece can really do music-wise. But instead we just ditched that chance and decided to follow western models - and it's not even good taste imitation.

I don't like Everything either!It's nothing special!A simple ballad....But we won last year,so I don't mind!

I'm very sorry to disappoint you, but ours is worst than yours,Nicky,Elen and Eleana!

Non-Stop look like a terrorist group,which target is the good-taste! They always wear rags,they sing awfully, the song has nothing to do with Portugal;instead,they kinda of try to say some words in english according to the rythm :(!

Like Elen,Nicky and Laracroft! said I don't like the greek song either.

I 'm surprised who voted in favour since everyone I know so far doesn't like it.
Although I live in the hosting city, I believe we trashed our chances.
Any point taken will be out of honouring the hosting country. If we get any.
I guess all our efforts stoped the day we won.
On the other hand the preparations for the show look very promising.

Oh come on. Give Anna a break. I'm sure if the song has been in Greek it would've been way better.

I used to hate our song too. But after I listened to it a couple of times I changed my mind. Now it's one of the best three in my opinion. In case you're wondering the other 2 are, Romania - Tornero and Swizteland - If we all give a little.

15-05-06, 17:45
I love Anna Vissi but I don't like the song... It's too ordinary. And not "Greeky" :D I've heard other songs that were nominated, and (I might be wrong, can't remember!) they were all electric pop songs... No greek stuff! I don't think you'll win this year, but you probably wouldn't even if you had a terrific song. Helena DID rock last year :tmb:

I've heard most of the songs from this year's competition, and I must say that the competition isn't that tough like last year.. Unfortunately :( But I'm sure that Greeks did the greatest job at organizing, like you did with the Olympics.
I have to use this opportunity to say that I love your country and people very much, cause we're so alike (orthodox mostly, right :tmb:) and that I'm looking forward to this year's Eurosong (even though we're not participating :(). I'm sure it'll have that warm and domestic, but yet modern feeling to it!

Yes, she does. In the beginning I was like "OMG, what song did we choose?!?", but now I'm completely OK with it. I'm very curious to see our result and how will other countries accept it. :) For the first time we have a cool, unusual song for Eurovision. :D :p
