I avoided watching the Eurovision Snog Contest for about 30 years but then, when my Saturday snooker nights stopped (dammit) then I was in the house and watched it a few times. Though I always recorded it and watched it on catch-up, fast forwarding through the most boring bits.

Didn't watch the last couple of years though, since Wogan has gone it has lost 70% of its appeal.

Does anyone here watch it in full, maybe have a song contest evening with snacks, drinks and inviting fiends around?

Just set my PVR to record it -

MUSIC: Eurovision Song Contest 2013
On: BBC 1 HD (101)
Date: Saturday 18th May 2013 (starting this evening)
Time: 20:00 to 23:15 (3 hours and 15 minutes long)

Bonnie Tyler flies the flag for the United Kingdom as the final of the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest gets underway in Malmo, Sweden, the country who won Eurovision for the fifth time in 2012. Bonnie performs the anthemic song Believe in Me, and is one of 26 acts competing for the coveted title of Eurovision Song Contest winner 2013. Graham Norton is in the commentary hot seat in Malmo, bringing his unique take on all things Eurovision.
(Editor's Choice, Stereo, Widescreen, High Definition, Subtitles)


Maybe I can match my record and watch the whole thing using the FF button in less than an hour? Or maybe I won't bother at all. :)

I shall probably have it on, if I'm awake at the time :) - It's appeal is it's crappyness :)

I sometimes watch the voting, as it's very funny. No point watching/listening to the acts as they are 99% crap and the voting has nothing to do with the performance.

Best idea is to guess who will give whom points....e.g.

Cyprus give Greece 12 pts and vice versa
I don't expect Germany to get as many votes this year!

Wogan used to be great, especially after he'd had a couple of drinks!

I've watched this series of The Voice and found it a refreshing change from Britains (Not) Got Talent. Not saying much though really is it? :D
I do like The Voice though and am disappointed it's not on.

I definitely will not watch Eurovision. :nono:
Wonder if we should have a referendum on if we should pull out of Eurovision.... Oh hang on.... there is going to be. :D ;)
