  1. The Riga Beaver for Latvia, I hope.

  2. nieves alvarez as spokesperson for españa, que horror, she is most famous for leading that poor Spanish guy to his not winning his big spanish prize

  3. nieves alvarez , she’s a joke here in Spain, no wonder TVE got her to send our points to the rest of europe :-) jeje!

    • thus she will equally badly comment on Spain coming last in ESC, nieves si me ves, aqui ,igual estará conmigo al final

  4. sigh, at least Elodie got memorable last year in her awfulness ahah

  5. Wasn’t it Richard Osman for the UK last year? I would welcome him back every year.

  6. Joyeux anniversaire:

  7. Hi, Shev. It’s already posted here. It went perfectly! Made me cry, actually :-)

    • Thanks, I’ve been watching some wiwi recordings. He was sublime and the odds are reacting to it. Bulgaria is back in third, btw.

    • And the videos of his rehearsals seem to be the most popular, but that was to be expected, because ha hasn’t been there.

      • Of course, it’s only natural that people want to finally see him :-) I’m so nervous, aren’t you?

        • A bit, but not too much, because history tells me not to expect too much, when it comes to votes.

          • I guess you’re right, the blocks are very eficient in the wrong way. And we have only one neighboor… I’ll try to fight for Alentejo independance, and maybe other regions might do the same and we’ll have a block of our own :-)
