    There are two links to the full contest, one has BBC commentary and Bosnia muted; no idea what this one is like though:

    This one has no commentary, if we'd rather.

    I’m going with the second one - it’s half an hour longer.

    The first one claims to be HD so I'd go with that.

    Hmm... if they've chopped stuff out of the first then I'd agree.

    I think the second one has a load of interviews after the main show, but I'm watching that one as well.

    Bosnia seems to work on both from a very quick glance

    They both seem to have perfectly acceptable picture and sound quality. I don't think it really matters, but I'll avoid the foreign commentary.

    Did Sheena go to this one?

    Were any other Moopers there?

    This is my first ever Eurovision, as a young lad fresh off the plane from Canada.

    I’ve just checked. They’re within a second of each other in terms of sync. You can switch back.

    As I have mentioned once or twice over the past few months, this is the most recent Eurovision which I have never seen. I'm very excited.

    I just had to restart because of that cancerous pissbiscuit Wogan. I'm listening to someone speaking foreign, but it's infinitely better than someone speaking SHIT.

    A few minutes behind, but this Greek intro song - they really do think a lot of themselves, don't they? :D

    Loving the DRAMA though

    I didn't watch 2003 before so I'm watching it tonight as a friend (via WhatsApp) is also watching. The only problem with going rogue!

    Wogan speaks through so much of Lejla.

    The BBC one has a song muted, so that's two reasons that you have made the right decision.

    Can’t believe the camera direction missed the human 1.
