Until when do we need to avoid spoilers?

If you've seen the first qualification session, did you see that little contribution on why Australians love eurovision? That was nice.

I'm one of the persons who don't care about Eurovision at all. I don't even know the song Latvia is sending. It's been ages since we've last got to the final.

I'd love it if Dolgopolov played better and the matches on the central court took more time. For now it looks like I won't be able to watch Gulbis-Rafa

No You don't have to worry or avoid spoilers. You have a right to comment on what's happening in real time
It's our TV's fault for delaying it so much. We get SF1 on Friday night, SF2 on Saturday night and then the final on Sunday night (I have complete media/internet lockdown on Sunday to avoid it all).

I haven't seen the tribute to Australia yet but I have heard about it and looking forward to seeing it tomorrow!

Hope the next one goes a bit slower for you! As for me, I wanted to fit in Tomas and Benoit's matches before bed and looks like the rain has been kind enough to let me do so after all

Nooo don't be silly! I hadn't even been in here for ages anyway, I have no right to expect people to avoid spoilers for me!!! I just didn't get spoilers here anyway, I saw Eurovision mentioned and ran out again yesterday (I did get spoilt on 2 countries making it through though but that was on Twitter)

and OMG Benoit just beat Delpo!!! What a great result for him

His old luscious hair!

SPOILER ALERT TO PETA!!
Andreea, I need to know what you think of your famous contratenor at Eurovison.
Greece was one of the most horrible IMO and got to the final!

Eurovision Spoilers ahead


I forgot the greek song as soon as the next one came along but I remember the act. I figure that this is what got them through.

Romania (or, as the one of the commentators on the BBC said: "putting mania in to Romania") was hysterical. Granted, the man has an incredible voice. Just looking at how flexible his vocal cords must be:
I don't find it pleasing on my ears at all, but it's also a memorable act so in that sense, I'm glad it's through. This is what eurovision is about IMO. It's not about song quality and artistic value but eurovision is supposed to be fun. Romania had an entertaining act to watch.

The box act: some people argued: remove the box and the song is instantly forgettable. I'd agree with that, but the box act was great.

Switzerland had a puzzling act. To me, it felt as if they were doing a rehearsal and they were still trying to tweak it, they'd still have to figure out the outfits and what to do on stage. It felt unfinished.

From what I've seen of the German act: that's a clear rip-off of the winning song last year. Even the song titles match: Glorious (compared with last year's winner "Euphoria").

Finally, the dress of the host of the show. What a monstrosity!

But we'd need Andreea the opera expert's take on this, the Romanian song. Of course it stood out.

Yep sorry Evita, your boys weren't kinda memorable enough. You can cheer for Lithuania or Estonia on Saturday. I didn't like the Finnish song.

Nigel Farage flees barrage of abuse from Edingburgh protesters

Scotland

Quote:
Farage was first forced out of the Canon's Gait pub on the Royal Mile after the landlord took fright as the demonstrators disrupted his casual press conference with shouts of "racist", "scum" and "homophobe"?

Then, finally, the harassed and ill-prepared handful of officers were forced to push him back into the Canon's Gait, slamming its front doors shut, as the demonstrators chanted: "Nigel, you're a bawbag, Nigel you're a bawbag, na, na, na, hey!" with gusto.


Farage is nothing but a dumbass so I'm glad some see through him.
