So since 2 AM (3 am CET) last night, the running order has been announced for tomorrow's final. Over the week, countries were drawn into the first or second half of the final, so here is how it went:
15: United Kingdom
Try not to be hermetic
Euro Neuro don’t be sceptic
Hermetic, pathetic, analphabetic
Forget all cosmetic, you need new poetic
Esthetic, ecletic, dialectic
Euro neuro, don’t be dogmatic, bureaucratic
You need to become pragmatic
To stop change climatic, automatic
Need contribution from the institution
To find solution for pollution
To save the children of the evolution
This album is the compilation of all 43 songs which made it to the final and semi-finals of Eurovision. With a rich cultural mix of languages (though English certainly dominates) and styles (ranging from a Capella to operatic pop) there’s something for everyone in this album. Despite the lack of the all-important visuals which are included in the live performances, most of the songs still manage to deliver well (with the marked exception of pseudo-mainstream attempts such as ‘Celebrate’), with their impressive vocals and melodies intact.
Melbourne, Australia - Each year, Australia holds a Eurovision weekend from Friday to Sunday where the First and Second Semi Finals are shown culminating in the Final show on Sunday evening. During the Final the Australian public get their chance to televote for their winner.
This year, the Australian public vote differed significantly from the European vote. All weekend there were huge Eurovision parties in Melbourne, Sydney and the other major Australian cities.
Although Australia cannot vote in the actual Eurovision Song Contest, each year the public do televote to...
HOW IT ALL BEGUN
The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) was formed on 12th February 1950 by 23 broadcasting organisations from Europe and the Mediterranean at a conference in Devon, United Kingdom. It was on the 6th of June, 1954, that Montreux became the venue for the first transmission by the EBU's Eurovision Network of the Narcissus Festival and its flower-bedecked procession floats. The first Eurovision viewers eagerly watched on four million television sets in homes, bars, and shop windows in Germany, Belgium, France, the United Kingdom, Italy, the Netherlands and Switzerland.

I was browsing through the picks and one question caught my attention the most, it was Ratdog's question: Do you think the voting is fixed or based on country's neighbours and politics?
I personally do believe that the neighboring countries vote for each other, however I think that it is inevitable for this to happen, not only because of language similarities. Its the culture in total that matters. For example, if you look at the scandinavian countries who vote for each other. They all have similar sounding languages which originated from the same branch....
In my humble opinion this year's results are a JOKE. Epic fail. Conchita won because she HAD to win, if you know what I mean. By the way I hate racism, but the appearance was not aesthetically good and nobody will remember the song in the next week. Netherlands was good, but not for 2nd place. Sweden's song was the most boring ever and I am sure I've heard other 73 songs similar to that in Eurovision. Armenia and Hungary were OK. Switzerland deserved better with its happy whistling.
