Greece is out. Terrible song. :roll:

That's probably better for us... We'll get all the Greek votes. :D

Also the Turk from San Marino lost. What a joke that was. :lol:

Oh gawd, was he Turkish? :lol: I was watching with a French friend of mine and she took such an instant dislike to this person which I thought was rude as the poor depraved man was just trying to copy Leonard Cohen and simply looking pathetic. :P

I agree it wasn't good, but better than some of the ones which did get through.

Of course, it was obvious it wouldn't get through as it was the only one with some ethnic authenticity in the instruments and mostly sung in the native language!

I wondered why there were some Turkish flags being waved around .... I thought perhaps some refugees had got lost. :P

Cyprus song is pretty good for a change. A real hard rock group.

Best part is the lead guitarist. He is damn good. Reminds me of Slash from Guns N Roses! :)

It's instantly likable - which is promising - but we're just going to get the same Eastern European countries voting for each other and all the Scandinavian block voting for their own kind as well. So little chance of a good piece of music getting very far ...
