It's all relative. This might have looked alright in the BBC basement in front of a crowd of 20, but put these two clowns in front of 5,000 people or whatever the population of Latvia is and it descends straight into NATIONAL EMBARRASSMENT.But this performance is not even close to the HORROR that was in Eurovision.
Mine has skipped to ASFE 2002, presented by Claire Sweeney. She really has never, at any point in her life, been young. She came out of the womb with rollers in.
We've managed to field an actual decent entrant a couple of times - 2009, 2011, 2017 - but it really is shocking just how bad we've been at this since Jessica. It costs the BBC as much to send shite as it would to send something respectable, so why they're so determined to just half arse it is entirely beyond me.
A couple of SuRie's post Eurovision songs have been so much better. Not necessarily winners, but a massive step outside of the box of nothingness we tend to keep our entries inside. She deserves another crack of the whip, I was proud of her as a representative even if the song was a bit gash.Sometimes we have managed to get a decent artist, but the song isn't up to scratch. Javine and SuRie are probably two of those. Javine suffered from having the dreaded second in the running order plus there were other ethnic uptempos that did it so much better. SuRie is a great artist but she was saddled with a shite song.
One of my exes is in business with John Amabile. An even bigger queen in real life.
