All set for 8.00pm!
Get yourself a nice glass of wine ? or cup of tea brew & enjoy.
Good luck Sam - our very own Spacemaaaaaan! We’ve actually got a brilliant song this year so should do well.

See you at 8.00!

Watching tonight for what will be first time in years and agree it would be nice for UK ?? to do well, but think Ukraine ?? will be the run away winner.

My vote goes to the Ukraine ??
My reason for watching

So looking forward to this!
GS is here overnight so also looking forward to his comments - he's quite forthright and hasn't been exposed to Eurovision before!
I think it's a given that the Ukraine will have the people's vote, and rightly so, but hoping for more than a zero for Sam.

I can still remember being in a room full of friends watching ABBA win! I don’t think any of the songs I like seem to be very popular. I haven’t actually heard Sam’s song all the way through yet. And I haven’t checked the running order yet….

I haven't watched Eurovision for about 30 years but have just switched on for some light entertainment!

Mind, I've had enough excitement this evening with the penalty shoot-out! shock ?

MayBee70 Sat 14-May-22 20:35:59

I hate penalty shoot outs. I feel so sorry for the ones that miss. I’ve had three pence ew on Estonia at 300/1. Don’t like most of the popular ones eg Sweden.

Grannmarie Sat 14-May-22 20:54:27

Well I enjoyed Norway's novelty song, very catchy!

However I am fully expecting Ukraine to win, as a sign of European solidarity.
The opening ceremony of Give peace a chance was very uplifting.

I'm sure Sam will do well, best performer/ song we've had for some time.

I'm just enjoying the spectacle, and the introduction to each song is like an Italian travelogue, what beautiful places!

Maggiemaybe Sat 14-May-22 20:59:02

Well I enjoyed Norway's novelty song, very catchy!

Me too. Very catchy, and completely mad. grin

eGJ Sat 14-May-22 21:01:38

Spain’s a little mad too, but catchy - both song and costume

Jaxjacky Sat 14-May-22 21:26:06

Ditto Riverwalk on both counts.

Callistemon21 Sat 14-May-22 21:27:59

Is the standard better this year?

Kandinsky Sat 14-May-22 21:29:25

Loved that one!

Galaxy Sat 14-May-22 21:34:58

Just about to say the same Callistemon, I thought it might be the wine.

Callistemon21 Sat 14-May-22 21:35:33


MayBee70 Sat 14-May-22 21:37:54

I think it’s awful this year. I like Iceland. Reminds me of First Aid Kit.

Callistemon21 Sat 14-May-22 21:39:16

We havent watched for years because I remember thinking it was dire.

Perhaps I'm mellowing in my old age!

Grannmarie Sat 14-May-22 21:41:59

Did someone mention wine? Don't mind if I do!??

I watch TV with subtitles, so I'm enjoying seeing the English lyrics to the songs. Also loving the stunning Italian scenery.

ElaineI Sat 14-May-22 21:43:04

Been a few I like. Did like Norway's and also Ukraine. Trouble is I forget which is which though could be the wine! Opening ceremony was very moving. Ok so Moldova very good too! Agree Callistemon standard much better.

Kandinsky Sat 14-May-22 21:44:00

Oh this one is awful

Jaxjacky Sat 14-May-22 21:44:14

Well that’s livened it up! One violinist looks like a young Bob Mortimer.

TillyTrotter Sat 14-May-22 21:45:37

Moldova’s song was a bit bonkers but the audience really went for it!

merlotgran Sat 14-May-22 21:46:09

Yay! Moldova.

Callistemon21 Sat 14-May-22 21:47:07


Well that’s livened it up! One violinist looks like a young Bob Mortimer.

Where, where???

Grannmarie Sat 14-May-22 21:49:44

So far, I like Norway, Italy and Sweden....
and Ukraine ?? of course!
