I see Eurovision Again didn’t manage to arrange for him to not pull the cord out of his microphone.

Pretending to tap dance. Should be banned. Alright song though.

The lack of enthusiasm in the Finnish intro. They’re practically begging for last place.

Doing a piss poor job of playing the flute as well. Assuming the instruments were recorded back then, which they might not have been, you’d think they would have got someone to do a proper job.

This is probably my least favourite from the late 70s-early 80s German golden period, but it’s still pretty good.

Noel Edmonds. And, soon, Adolf Aston’s brother.

I didn’t know that Roy Orbison represented Portugal at Eurovision.

This is excellent. I knew Mouth was holding her back.

As is the case with all Dutch female singers, Maggie MacNeal has completely different real name: Sjoukje Lucie van 't Spijker.

Introducing the song in Gaelic. I wish they would send a song in it one year.

Telex is great. I know they’re taking the piss, but they’re doing it so well.

I assume that clattering is the entire audience heading to the bar.

You’d think that if Eurovision Again were insisting on fucking about with the original broadcast then they could shove a recap in there.

More groups should get their dancers to dress up as broccoli.
