Default Eurovision Song Contest!

It's that gnarly time of year again, the biggest TV broadcast in the world is this Saturday, with the first semi final in only 2 hours (at the time of posting)

Popular reasons to watch the ESC:
-The humor (funny/cheesy songs)
-The faaaaaabulous (counts as humor depending on who you are!)
-Some (few) good songs
-Feeeeeeelgooood viiiibes maaaaan

Who's watching??? Also, let's look back on last year's with fondness:

That I was loved for who I am
And missed the opportunity
To become a better man

I have a housewarming to go to on Saturday and unfortunately the people who invited me have horrible taste in music so I'd imagine I'll see a bit of it. It could actually be a bit of a laugh if I drink heavilly enough.

LOL that's what I do every year! Drink, that is. Can't imagine watching the ESC sober

It's a love/hate relationship.

You guys should play the Eurovision Song Contest Drinking Game. Every time a crap song comes on, you take a drink. Every time someone cracks a note, you take a drink. Everytime someone attempts to dance in a terrible costume, you take a drink. If you surive without liver failure by voting time, you get to be the first to have the life saving stomach pump!

I'm actually crazy enough to do this. But this would be something I would attempt watching it with someone else than the family..!

How much alcohol do you have? Bear in mind Ireland, in our infinite wisdom, have sent Jedward to it.

I'd like to take this moment to apologise on behalf of Ireland for entering Jedward, we just needed an excuse to get them out of our country for a while.

I will be doing my very best to avoid the whole thing, I would rather carve out my eyes with rusty spoons and drive iron rivets into my ears!

Hence the 'if you survive long enough' part. lol.

And anything that gets them any distance from the UK..... Seriously though, how drunk were you guys when you opted for them?

Gods last I watched ESC was the time Lordi represented Finland. I got all my mates over for a "ESC party" and we decided to support the Fins for the night because, as usual, the UK entry was utter wank.

To celebrate the thing better, I came up with a drinking game:

Names of all the nations, except your own, in a hat (in our case, we also kept out finland).

Everybody taking part draws a nation.

Whenever that nation gets 12 points or 0 points, take a shot.
Whenever your own nation (UK and Finland in our case) gets 12 points or 0 points, take 2 shots.

So yeah. What happened that night? Finland kept getting 12 points round after round. UK kept getting 0 points round after round.

Luckily we ran out of booze before anybody died.

This year I honestly haven't kept up with it... I haven't even got a clue as to who is representing the UK this year... it's probably somebody aweful again. Surely can't be as bad as Katie Price though...
