Hey, I really like the recent winners, Lena Meyer-Landrut and Alexander Rybak (supposed to be Orthodox, btw), and a few other contestants. Are there any other fans? (If you are not familiar with it, this a contest of singers who are already famous their home countries.)

I try to see the Eurovision (at least the finals) every year. Actually, Lena Meyer-Landrut will sing again next year for
Germany.

Not all singers who participate in the Eurovision are already famous in their home countries, for example Lena was unknown in Germany before, but trained by Stefan Raab, a famous TV presenter and singer, who participated in the Eurovision before himself. In fact, there are different ways of deciding who runs for a country, sometimes it is just the TV station of that country, sometimes they hold a vote...

I consider myself a eurovision fan.  Smiley

I first watched the contest with my parents in 1983, and I was only 5 at that time! My father recorded the show so that we could watch it over and over. I had two favourites: Daniel Popovich, who competed for Yugoslavia and Remedios Amaya, who competed for Spain. Yugoslavia came 4th whereas Spain came last with nil points.  Sad

While attending university, I could not follow the contest and was sometimes unaware of its schedule. However, in 2003 I retrieved my interest in the contest and resumed following it in 2003. In 2006 I became an addicted fan to the point of chatting everyday in a eurovision song chatroom and making many friends.

I liked the show of 2006 and 2007, but was not pleased with the winner of the former. (I did not like Lordi!). In 2007 I was elated to see Serbia win the contest with the beautiful song "molitva" sung by Marija Serifovic. I do not think Dima Bilan deserved to win in 2008. His song in 2006 was much better. In 2009 the fairy tale won, but IMHO Iceland deserved the first place more than Norway. I am very happy that Germany has won this year! "Satellite" is a beautiful song indeed.

There is no obligation which language to sing in and many performers sing in their native ones.

Pozdrav brate,  Wink

In the past, contestants were not allowed to sing in a language other than their mother tongue, but now there is no language rule.

The only song I've ever heard from Eurovision is that great classic "My Lovely Horse." Wink

Lena would be good if she didn't use such a low class accent and dialect.

Yea, I have a problem with a person speaking cockney English, especially when they aren't even consistent.

Roll Eyes Well, she speaks the way her English teacher did/taught. I like it. It's cute. Feel free to disagree. Doesn't change much with those of us who like it.

I wonder if they will find enough people to buy these CDs. Here in Europe, hardly anyone still buys CDs. Any kind of music can be found on the net these days, and people here don't really feel copyright infringement to be a bad thing.

You have to love Elena Paparizou 2005 winner. Her voice is incredible. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=icP8PqdW59k&feature=related

Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.
