Eurovision is shit this year.
Pure unmitigated shit.
Wait – before you give up, hear me out. As most of you know, I’m a Eurovision fan. Perhaps not the most dedicated (I don’t pay attention to within country song selection processes, not even within Germany), but I do buy the music and listen to it [...]
I neither got around to reviewing the second Eurovision semi-finals, nor to discussing the Eurovision Finals – badAdam.
I have a good excuse: I was exhausted and any free time I had this weekend, I was asleep. Friday’s super early alarm (4:30, after 5 hours of sleep) in combination with a late evening (home past [...]
Last night, my American friend and I went out and watched Eurovision, the first semifinal round, at Rausch Gold, where, appropriately, we got a bit tipsy.
I won’t bother explaining exactly what Eurovision is, since I’ve covered the subject before, and because one can read the Wikipedia Eurovision and get the dry basics there, but [...]
In no particular order, I present my 10 favorite Eurovision songs. This list is notable for a number of reasons, including the fact that I really like the song for France – no clue what she’s singing about, but the video has lots of decent eye-candy.
Further, I apologize in advance because I’ve included [...]

How Malta did not get through is beyond me.
Can anybody tell me what the first line of Germany’s Eurovision 2011 entry is? It’s sung by Lena, a performer with a rather unusual English accent, and I cannot decide what the line is, even after listening to it more times that I care to admit.
When I listen to it, [...]
I realize that I am neither Stefan Raab nor any of the powers that be in the German Television Industry, but I have a modest proposal for Eurovision 2011.
As we all know, Eurovision is a really important event every year. The fact is that it is a cultural phenomenon that is watched by millions [...]
I can’t believe it: Germany won Eurovision with what I think is a really bland song (Satellite) sung by a forgettable girl (Lena). I don’t care that she did her hair for me.
Her victory moments on stage were insane—I don’t think she had ever considered the possibility that she might win. She [...]
Eurovision was one of the first European things I ever latched onto—and I latched onto it not knowing what it was whilst being totally clueless about its history. I just knew that it was something awfully important and awfully fun. It took a few more minutes for me to realize that it was also awful: [...]
