Unfortunately, the rest of Europe doesn't seem to share our views.
Well, the Germas seem to think it's a good excuse to be as outlandish as possible - which is always fun. Most of western Eurpoe sees it as a song competition, and take it deathoy seriously. And Eastern Europe seems to think it's a political statement of some kind.
As most of the contest is stacked with old Eastern Bloc countries now, I confidently expect to do atrociously with our spectacularly camp novelty song by total unknowns.
But as we bankroll the whole thing we get a free pass into next years competitonanyway, so it will continue to be an annual tradition.
Plus, I bet we'll have far more fun watching our lot lose, that many other countries peoples will have watching their people do well:-)
