I don’t have any plans for Saturday so I might join for this.

I have 2006 down as quite a good year in my books. The nice Norwegian lady, Las Ketchup flopping, Texas Lightning, that Bosnian one, Anna Vissi, Tina Karol, SEVERINA :disco: and the ugly fucking bitch from Sweden is MORE than enough to drag it out of the poor category.

Not to mention an early appearance of the one and only :hostage: as well as the likes of Belgium, Iceland and Estonia that didn’t get through.

And that’s why you get drunk before the show starts :disco:

We have it on with a group of my straight friends. No idea how we've got away with it

I asked Mr L but he wasn't up for it. Secretly relieved.

Me, figuring out how old @Soldi was in 2006:

"Show Me Your Love" surely was one of the biggest glow-ups from studio to live EVER.

A turd on record I'd NEVER listen to but she sold the FUCK out of it on stage. :disco:

VISPER MY NAME"

Now it’s in HD we’ll be able to see Carola lobbing a plant pot into the audience again.

:UngratefulBastards:

Still bitter over some of these AMATEURS making it to the finals over our SILV.

She's much better than all of the other Eurotrash NATIONS :disco:

It’s actually quite a good year once you get past that first four that make you want to jump into the bath with a toaster.

Really good bunch of songs, though this is more based on performances on the night.

I think I’ll watch Helena perform Mambo then CALL IT A NIGHT considering the voting was on the dull side.

The Twitter fandom is FULL OF PAEDOS so I wouldn’t bother caring about what THEY think :eyes:

It wouldn't make a list of my personal favourites, but I think Lordi are one of the most important winners of the 21st century in terms of giving the Contest a shot of pop culture relevance at a point when it was getting increasingly fringe-y.
