I’m a great fan of Eurovision and its combination of cheese and hot women. I try and blank out the women with beards and transexuals, not really my scene.

This year we have a good entry in Joe and Jake, as usual we probably have no chance of winning but at least this year I can honestly say we were robbed.

My prediction for top 3 is..

  1. Russia
  2. Sweden
  3. Australia

A couple of good rock songs from Georgia and Cyprus but not the sort to win Eurovision.
