the eurovision song contest is on tv. those of you who are in the US wont know what that is. basically its a contest where all the countries in europe and a couple more submit a song and then battle it out to see who will win and then the winner hosts the competition the next year. i dont normally watch it but my parents are watching so i did watch it for a few minutes. it was boring though. the ucraine is hosting it this year. i think the voting is fixed anyway, all the countries that surround each other always vote for each other. years ago it was about the songs and the meaning behind them but now the songs are shit the artists are more about who can be the most flamboyant or extravagant on stage etc. its not about the song any more. ireland has won the eurovision 7 times. i remember as a kid we’d watch and it was always so much fun. people still have eurovision parties nowadays though, apparently its still a huge deal for some people. i just have no interest in it any more. ireland did try to qualify this year but we havent been successful in a couple of years now. when i was watching it and i heard some of the shit that was in it i was like how did we not make it in, how did certain songs get through! it doesnt make any sense to me. i liked the netherlands song. portugal was topped to win i think, either portugal or belgium. if ireland had have been in it i might have had more interest in it.
