i tottally get that some entries are shite and some are pure comedy and some are pure shock value or weird, its also very easy to see the countries who for what ever reason have entered with a very obvious dud so they dont win, but what im trying to work out is if we are treated badly because we are auto qualifiers or are we just that crap and out of step with europe music wise? alot of our music is exported to europe, our native tongue is basically the second language of most euronation (i think only two entrants sang in non english in the competition this year and one of those placed higher than we did).

been reading some articles going back a few years and there does seem to be some traction about our nations perception to the competition (we dont treat it seriously enough because we only enter second rate acts) and that because we auto qualify and cant get knocked out we dont get votes as people think they are a wasted vote

I think it's more to do with entering shit acts. Or in this years case, a really shit act.

Yep, if we had knocked out a power ballad, we'd have been all over it. Maybe we could persuad Def Leppard, Thunder or The Darkness to have a go?
Unfortunately, upbeat psychadelic charleston weirdness with flashing LED clothes just isn't classy enough for our continental cousins.
Besides Will Young says that it's a poisoned chalice. BBC News. It appears most UK acts wouldn't touch it with yours.

Mind you, Bonnie Tyler entered a couple of years ago with Believe in Me, and she only placed 19th. Maybe there is something in this after all?

Very true. None of the past Irish winners ever did anything afterwards. Then again, Johnny Logan is apparently huge in Turkey.

Dana did okay for herself i would say, though to be fair any credibility any artist from Ireland had was quickly destroyed when you let Jedward represent you TWICE, i have he feeling we are getting the back lash for that because you guys havent made the finals lately and Europe needs someone to blame.

Has the rest of the isles ever had a formal apology for having those pair of whoppers inflicted upon our lives......?
