So we sat down on Saturday night with our list of drinking games in preparation for the annual bizarre costumes, out of tune songs and downright weird people.
That’s right it was time for the Eurovision song contest. We’re not sure whether it was the shots giving us ear goggles but we have to admit as the night went on, the acts got better. Blue managed to sing in tune for at least the second part of the song, while Austria’s 19 year old sang like an angel – even if the song was a bit Disney. Germany’s Lena also put on a good act as well as Estonia.
Acts that made us cringe had to be Greece, sorry we didn’t get the whole rap and then sombre singing as well as Iceland, whose band members looked like Boyzone and Westlife’s obese children.
However, the biggest surprise of the night was not the fact that Jedward sang – if you can call it that – out of tune, or the moans of “political voting” by the UK, it was in fact that the winners of this addictive contest was Azerbaijan. Now that was worth drinking about.
