More about Eurovision

So I was wrong. The best part about Eurovision wasn’t in fact Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi (as wonderful as they are), it was Petra Mede and Måns Zelmerlöw. Even Buzzfeed agrees. They were pretty spectacular.

Next best was that Ukraine won (with a political song!) over Russia, the favorite. The song wasn’t my favorite, but it was okay, and the message was a strong one. I know a lot of people aren’t happy with the results, but I’m not one of them.

  1. My first time to see the show. The opening was crazy. Eventually had to fast forward through some of the songs. I grew to love Petra and Mans as the show went along. I liked the little bio’s before the songs. Got a kick out of the Hungarian drummer! I loved getting the jury votes…tedious, but Petra was great and Carson Kressley on American channel had some pretty good snark during that segment. Liked it better than the songs. The whole thing was such over the top madness to a Eurovision virgin. I was okay with Ukraine, too, but I can’t imagine Kiev doing a better job hosting than Sweden. But if it’s on US tv, I’ll be back. Yes, the Ian and Derek bit cracked me up, too!

    1. I liked the Hungarian drummer, too! I wish I’d have seen Carson Kressley’s commentary — he’s so hilarious!

      It’s such a crazy thing, you’re right. It’s wild how much people get into it.
