Boycott the thing.
In general? Or because of this year's host?

Just read up on the host, wow what an idiot, and weirdly obtuse given the event he's hosting!

I don’t think any Nation that is committing ongoing war-crimes should host it.

Agreed. And for this reason, I won't be performing this year.

Not sure what I think of the songs this year.  Czech Republic stood out for me in Semi Final 1 and, like previous years, I thought Semi Final 2 was a lot better and therefore more unjust.  A lot of decent acts didn't get through again.

 

I don't love any so far, but Denmark and Norway stood out.  Got a feeling Australia will win and the UK will have to host it!

I agree that the second semi final was better in general. I've had the Norway song stuck in my head for ages haha!

I also liked the Netherlands and Sweden, and the Malta one grew on me after a while. And @Fierce_LiNk loved the San Marino song haha. 
As for Australia, I loved the staging/act, but the song didn't do too much for me I think. Sad that Belgium didn't get through but then again the song was very weak, oh well. 

We'll be watching it tomorrow with a take away and some alcohol. Can't wait for the commentary. :D

I'd love to watch it with commentary, but I don't pay the TV license, so it's plain old live-streaming for me... :( 

Excited for the high energy songs, not so excited for all the pro-Israel propaganda however...

Belgium was absolutely robbed last year, that's for sure.

Looking forward to the final tonight! Didn't realise it was the FA Cup Final today either, so it feels like a double-big day! :D

Stumble upon some dodgy bar in Cyberpunk 2077 and you might find that Icelandic band.

Czech Republic and Norway for me so far.

 

After seeing Iceland, I'm not so keen on joining EFTA.

After losing the semi finals against Spurs and missing out on the CL final by only a few seconds this feels like a nice kiss and make up from Europe. Thank you fellow Europeans! ;)
