Eurovision has been and gone for another year, what has been learnt?

 

 

So the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest has been and gone. All in all it was what we’ve come to expect from the annual competition, but what have we learnt:

 

 

The voting is all political and has nothing to do with the songs

Women with beards never go out of style

No one likes France

Russia are trying to get some brownie points back with the Ukraine, but Ukraine isn’t having it

England did alright (mid table obscurity suits our style)

Scott Mills is the perfect host for the show (post Terry Wogan)

The majority of the songs were in English, to add to the crossover appeal

 

 

This is just the tip of the iceberg really. You could discuss how the voting would play out in real life if any of the smaller countries actually had a say in European politics. Over all it was a fun show and sadly people are still interested by the bearded lady. At times it was like a musical version of Freaks!
