Should be an interesting one this year, despite the worlds troubles with viruses and varying states of chaos, Eurovision is still scheduled to brighten up to 3 nights of our lives again this year.
12th May & 14th May are the semi finals, and the 16th will be our final for the year. Free those evenings, and enjoy the camp fun!
Strong entries this year from several countrie so far. Iceland have toned it down from last years entry, with Think About Things, currently the top favourite to win, according to betting sites. Russia are going to pull out Little Big, who have been behind a few crackers, including the viral songs Skibidi with its crazy dance moves and Go Bananas. Not vocally the best, but Little Big always go the extra mile on delivery and performance, so hopefully they'll fit right in at Eurovison!
Not all countries have selected songs and artists yet, but im already impressed with the range of songs so far, giants yet to select songs include Ireland, Sweden, Finland & Norway, who nearly always do well, so i expect the range of songs to only improve in quality!
How's everyones thoughts regarding this years Eurovision?
I've heard all that Sweden has to offer for 2020, it is a very weak lineup indeed. Weak enough that I am concerned about progressing through the semi finals even. This will not be our year.

Really hope that entries for this year will be permitted to perform next year (or whenever the next Eurovision is), mostly so I can see Little Big perform their song live.
Here's to the shortest Eurovision thread on TT-F then!

That being said, I think we'll get some sort of event even if not a competition. In my mind, Iceland won this year.
She made my brother put together a playlist of 26 songs (the top 20 most likely winners according to odds, plus the big 5 and the host), randomised starting order. We had interval acts, the whole shebang. We then voted for our favourites according to the simple method "how good is this on a scale of 1-10?".
Well, without further ado:
10. Germany, 31 points
9. Poland, 32 points
8. Israel, 33 points
7. Sweden, 40 points (see, even in our own home we only finished 7th!)
6. Georgia, 41 points
5. Malta, 42 points
4. Italy, 43 points
3. Russia, 48 points
2. Iceland, 52 points
1. Lithuania, 56 points
Like I've said here before, Iceland is my favourite, but I'm pretty happy with Lithuania winning. See you in Vilnius in 2021!
UK, you ask? A perfectably acceptable P16 finish, with 22 points. The lowest score of all was Ireland, with just 12 points from a total of 6 voters (so that's a 2-point average)

Sweden 9pm, so that's 8pm in the UK, 3pm Eastern, noon Pacific.
We'll air the top 10 from both semi finals plus the big 5 and the host for a total of 26 entries. We'll vote in the Melodifestivalen app. Maybe that one is global too, and can be downloaded to your phone?
Hopefully Iceland bring back the same act for next year, and they can try again with a different song.
Did you watch the Eurovision Song Contest: Story of Fire Saga on Netflix? This scene above is really all you need, unless you're a massive nerd. This whole scene is just a love letter to music, with a lot of former Eurovision participants joining in. Loved it! I loved the movie, it was perfectly cheesy and cringe. Just like the real thing.
