I used to like Eurovision, but I stopped watching it a long time ago when I realised that the voting is completely biased. People don't vote for their favourite singer, they vote for which country they are friendliest with. I also wish that each country sang in their own language rather than English.
We watch it every year. It started with my husband and I, but now my two daughters get to play too. We watch all the songs, assigning three words to each of them to help us remember them (e.g. wailing piano punks or tiny vulpine dancers), then pick three favourites each (we can't pick the same ones), and then have a competition to see whose acts do best. We regularly pick the top 8 between us - quite a good record!
We watched the last 2 or 3 episodes of the 2016 Eurovision 1. The Aussie certainly should have won that 1!! She only came 2nd.This 1 was certainly rigged! We heard the winning song, & it was curtly nowhere near as good as our girl!!!
I have no question about how good their singer was or that they had just as much right to win as everyone else once in the contest, but they really shouldn't be in it at all. Not unless you decide to change the contest Worldvision.
On a side note, now the UK is leaving the EU, I wonder what our position will be. I don't think we should be in the contest anymore, but I expect we probably will be.
