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

McNulty and Roberts on target
Pompey and Plymouth could not be separated in an absorbing first leg play-off contest at a packed Fratton Park.
Marc McNulty’s early strike got the Blues off to a dream opening, only for Jamille Matt’s brace to turn the game on its head.
Argyle’s forward escaped a red card following a tussle with Michael Doyle in between those two goals.
But the hosts grabbed an equaliser in the second half, courtesy of Gary Roberts’ confidently-taken spot-kick.
Paul Cook made seven changes from the side that narrowly lost to champions Northampton at the weekend.
One of them took everyone by surprise, with a goalkeeping injury crisis seeing Ryan Allsop signed on loan from Bournemouth and thrown straight into the team.
There were also returns for Christian Burgess and Enda Stevens at the back, Danny Hollands and skipper Doyle in midfield, and Kyle Bennett and McNulty in attack.
The game began at a frenetic pace and there was plenty of controversy to spice up the first half on the south coast.
But the Blues made an excellent start by breaking the deadlock after just three minutes.
Doyle stole possession from Curtis Nelson and the ball feel kindly for McNULTY to drive into the net.
The hosts set about trying to double their advantage, but Luke McCormick did well to claim a dangerous cross from Stevens.
Instead Plymouth found soon themselves level, with Gregg Wylde sending the ball into the mix and Matt beating Allsop to head home from close range.
The Argyle striker was arguably fortunate to stay on the pitch moments later, after appearing to headbutt Doyle following a scuffle between the pair.
Cook was livid on the sidelines and his reaction saw him sent to the stands by referee Oliver Langford, quickly followed by Plymouth first team coach Paul Wotton.
And Matt soon added salt to the wound by firing the visitors ahead, controlling Kelvin Mellor’s long throw and sending an acrobatic over-head effort looping into the net.
There were then half-chances at both ends as the game continued at a breathless pace, with Hollands firing wide before Graham Carey’s effort fizzed narrowly off target.
Pompey were pushing for a leveller and it took a fine challenge by Peter Hartley to dispossess Gareth Evans in the box as the winger prepared to shoot.
McNulty was next to go close, but his fierce effort flew narrowly wide following good link-up play between Burgess and Roberts.
Both sides certainly looked capable of adding to the scoring and some Pilgrims fans thought their side had when Carey’s free-kick hit the side netting.
Half Time: Pompey 1 Plymouth 2
Pompey went straight on the attack after the interval and Evans hit one effort over before Bennett saw his shot blocked.
And the hosts were level on 51 minutes after Langford pointed to the spot for a foul on McNulty by Hartley.
The Plymouth defender was shown a yellow card before ROBERTS stepped up to emphatically fire home the penalty.
McCormick then had to make sure he held Evans’ cross from the right, with Roberts waiting to pounce at the far post.
And the Argyle keeper also made a decent stop to deny McNulty following a quick Blues break, although an unmarked Bennett was screaming for the ball to his left.
The hosts made their first switch just past the hour mark and it was Bennett who was withdrawn for Kal Naismith.
He was soon involved in the action, but could not quite get on the end of Evans’ teasing cross from the right.
Pompey were dominating possession by this point and forcing their opponents to sit deeper, but the Pilgrims defence were holding firm.
McNulty was withdrawn on 81 minutes, with Adam McGurk given a chance to impress up front.
It was Ben Davies who had a chance to fire them in front soon after, however, with McCormick forced to save at his near post.
But, with the game ending 2-2, the outcome was still very much up in the air as the sides prepare to do battle once more at Home Park on Sunday.

Another excellent concert from Tim Booth and the crew, have they ever done a bad gig?
Hadn’t listened to the new CD much prior to the concert so unfamiliar with some of the songs but the classics always enough to keep things kicking along although noticeably this time Laid was missed out along with Sit Down.
Also good to catch up with some of the old Autoliv crew in Paul Ryan, Lee Cornwell and Mark Stephen

Freeman sent off as Blues lose to champions
Pompey will host Plymouth in the first leg of the play-offs on Thursday evening after losing 2-1 to Northampton.
The champions took the lead through Jack Whatmough’s unfortunate own-goal in the opening stages.
Kieron Freeman then received his marching orders for a late challenge, only for a Kal Naismith stunner to draw the hosts level.
A series of attacking substitutions were made as the Blues searched for a winner, but instead James Collins secured all three points for the Cobblers.
Paul Cook made five changes from the side that won at Hartlepool the previous week.
Whatmough was handed his first start for more than a year in the centre of defence, with fellow academy graduates Brandon Haunstrup and Ben Close also featuring.
Ben Davies returned and skippered the side in place of Michael Doyle, while Adam McGurk came in up front.
Meanwhile, former Pompey players Ricky Holmes and John Marquis led the line for the visitors, who were afforded a guard of honour as they entered the pitch.
There were a plethora of awards handed out before kick-off, with Ben Davies picking up six from various supporters’ groups.
But it was Doyle who was named The News/Sports Mail Player of the Season – and the reaction from the fans indicated that it was deserved recognition.
Both sets of supporters then paid their respects to all the Blues fans who have sadly passed away over the past year with a minute’s applause.
Once the action got underway at a warm and sunny – and packed – Fratton Park, it was the visitors who looked more threatening.
Whatmough had to deal with a couple of dangerous crosses as a new-look Pompey side struggled for fluency.
But they were not too far away from opening the scoring on 12 minutes, with Adam McGurk flinging himself at Naismith’s cross and not quite making a clean connection.
Almost immediately, however, they found themselves behind as Whatmough inadvertently sliced Nicky Adams’ cross into his own net.
Pompey were not really playing with a recognised striker, as Gary Roberts occupied a ‘false number nine’ role, flanked by Naismith and McGurk.
They did start to create more as the half progressed, though, with McGurk curling a shot over and Naismith steering narrowly wide.
But Northampton still looked dangerous themselves and Marquis might have done better than firing wildly over after being picked out by Holmes.
Pompey should have been level on 33 minutes following a good move that started with a poor clearance from Cobblers keeper Adam Smith.
Roberts picked the ball up and it soon found its way, via Freeman, to Davies down the right flank.
The full-back sent in a low cross, but Smith redeemed himself by somehow denying Naismith from point-blank range.
Roberts then collected a lovely pass over the top from Close and spotted Smith off his line, although he could not quite chip the ball over the back-pedalling keeper.
Both sides picked up a booking before the break, with Davies and Lawson D’Ath penalised for fouls on Holmes and Haunstrup respectively.
Half Time: Pompey 0 Northampton 1
Pompey’s hopes of getting anything from the game were dealt a massive blow just after the restart when they were reduced to 10 men.
Freeman slid in to try to win the ball and although he did not really catch John-Joe O’Toole, referee Mark Brown decided it was dangerous.
He immediately brandished a red card to rule the on-loan Sheffield United utility man out of the play-offs.
But the hosts found themselves level just seconds later – thanks to a strike right out of the top drawer.
There did not look much on when NAISMITH advanced goalwards, but he hit a stunning, swerving 35-yard strike that arrowed into the net.
Cook was forced to make his first substitution on the hour mark, as Close limped off to be replaced by Adam May.
Haunstrup then had the ball in the back of the net, but Brown had already blown his whistle for a foul on Smith by McGurk.
Northampton soon enjoyed a period of pressure, with Marquis denied by Brian Murphy before Alfie Potter fired into the side netting.
Cook made an attacking switch on 69 minutes, as Conor Wilkinson replaced Whatmough for his debut.
That resulted in a defensive reshuffle which saw Gareth Evans drop to right-back and Davies move into the centre.
And Naismith was soon employed at left-back when Haunstrup made way for Ben Tollitt on 77 minutes.
Pompey now had an abundance of attack-minded players on the pitch, but the visitors soon made their numerical advantage count to retake the lead.
Cobblers skipper David Buchanan swung the ball into the box and Collins got a faint touch to turn it home.
Naismith tried to draw the Blues level with another attempt from long-range, but this time Smith dived across goal to make the save.
And Pompey were unable to find a late leveller as the visitors secured victory to cap a memorable campaign.
But plenty of fans still stayed behind to salute the Blues as they returned to the pitch after the final whistle for a lap of appreciation.
