Congratulations to Conchita Wurst. I just saw Conchita Wurst's performance on youtube. Interesting choice of music. Very 007.

Re: Eurovision Song Contest 2014 - Copenhagen, Denmark

A very diverse but ultimately enjoyable run this year - not in the least because we Dutch finally got back onto the podium, lol. Still, we lost to a deserved winner, IMO. Seeing Conchita Wurst sing and being so honestly overwhelmed by her success during the voting really sold it to me. Still, Eurovision continues its trend with me in that the performance I liked most for the evening... was the interval act, lol. Nice to see Emmelie de Forest still going strong.

I've only been watching for the last couple of years, but that was the closest contest I've seen. Congrats to Austria.

Special mention to Poland, favourite extras performance. It also reminded me to get my laundry in.

The Polish song was sexy as hell. I also liked the Belarus entry. Very much a Robin Thicke inspired track. The Kazakh girl in the MV is hot.

Re: Eurovision Song Contest 2014 - Copenhagen, Denmark

I enjoyed it a lot, but I'm a bit meh with the winner. Good song, very Bond theme as stated earlier, ,but I thought Spain and Poland were better. The set left me gobsmacked.

Jessica Mauboy did very well as the 'Aussie entry', it's pretty big Down Under, becase we have so many European migrants.

As usual, some crazy entries (the manster wheel and circular piano), and the chorus of, iirc, the Finnish entry ripped off Steppenwolf's 'Magic Carpet Ride' something fierce, but it was entertaining. I really must spend a year in Europe, just travelling. I really must.

^ Iceland were the ones channelling "Magic Carpet Ride", Finland were the Indie boy band. Didn't mind Iceland. I thought their performance was pretty good, it was bright and lively.

Correct, I was just coming in to change this. I think I wrote Iceland the first time then changed it.

Also, Albania channelled Seal's 'Kiss From A Rose', anyone else get that vibe?

Re: Eurovision Song Contest 2014 - Copenhagen, Denmark

In overall this years ESC left me with positive vibes. The finale was quite good quality and I liked the winner much

I also enjoyed seeing Jessica Mauboy and the Australian show.
I think it was about time they were invited to participate.
Denmark did great job hosting, I was very impressed by the stage and the rest of the production.

Apparently we asked if we could rather than getting an offer. Given the links between Australia and Denmark it isn't a surprise they said yes. We do have an in with the royal family after all.
