My scorecard for the Eurovision finals.
As you can see, I gave perfect scores to Sweden (always reliable for pop, right?), Ireland (nothing but love for Jedward — they got wet for us!!!), and Ukraine (probably the overall best song of the competition this year).
On a slightly related, super passive-aggressive note, I have nothing but seething contempt for people who liveblog/tweet things they are inherently biased against. I mean, we all have our biases, I’m not a huge fan of reggae but you don’t see me running my mouth off about Beenie Man or whoever. So if you’re a rockist dip, why livetweet Eurovision, let alone watch it? You’re not only wasting everyone else’s time, but you’re wasting your own time.
Okay, rant over. Time to watch the results come in.
