    Which country’s broadcast are we watching? Or will we be watching with American announcers? Personally I hope we get to see the BBC’s broadcast with Graham Norton.

    • crimibird says:

      As a Brit I hope you get the UK broadcast too. I would assume it’s BBC or the Eurovision own.

    • Jason Moore says:

      I would suspect that if it were the BBC broadcast it would be on BBC America, but since it’s on Logo I’m guessing it won’t be.

      • crimibird says:

        You know that the BBC and BBC America (part of BBC Worldwide) aren’t /actually/ the same thing right? BBC America/Worldwide have to bid on BBC shows/programming the same as any others.

    • Litz says:

      Well, the obvious ones are either the BBC broadcast or the Swedish one, with English commentators, since that’s where it’s filmed.

    Ugh….logo?!? I don’t even get an HD version of logo. I was totally excited for this but no thanks

    • Neemo says:

      watch it live on official eurovision youtube channel:)

    • Frank Lee says:

      Eff. Ing. Hell. The stars apologise for not aligning to get you your super high definition version of the Eurovision instead of the peasant standard definition. Hopefully Eurovision will take notice of your lack of excitement and give us billions upon billions more pixels on our screens next year. #firstworldproblems

    So thrilled, it’s about time! I know it’s EUROvision but it’s also an international phenom and thus deserves to be broadcasted worldwide.

    • cuius says:

      Given that Australia entered last year, can’t be long before an USA entry follows!

      • Sorokaste says:

        It’s absolutely possible for USA to enter. But it took Australia over 30 years of broadcasting, genuine interest and commitment before they were allowed to participate… If it happens, it probably won’t be very soon.

  4. Lauren says:

    Please let it be voiced by Graham Norton like is was (is still?) in the UK!!!

  5. Anna says:

    About damn time! You guys don’t know what you’ve been missing. Everyone should ge to enjoy the weirdness that is Eurovision. Even though this year is slightly less weird than the years before, judging by the semi finals…

  6. Mik says:

    No to get all serious and all – it’s the Eurovision after all – but there’s a documentary called The Secret History of Eurovison which really gives a good idea of just how big the Eurovision is and how important it’s been to modern European history. I’d recommend it.

  7. Znachki says:

    I’m so glad I no longer have to search out the show in the dark corners of the internet, or wait to see bits on You Tube. I am however, very disappointed that the naked guy and his wolves didn’t get through to the finals. LET THE CHEESE-FEST BEGIN!!!!

  8. Katya says:

    The UK’s song last year was terrible! Please don’t watch that! Watch Latvia’s love injected or belgium’s rhythm inside, totally amazing songs!!

    • cuius says:

      The problem is that the winning country has to present the show the next year, and that takes lots of money, which the BBC don’t have. Also with the current referendum, anything EU is verboten

  9. Hellas13 says:

    Sorry to break it to you the Austrian entry that won had nothing to do with the song and all to do with people voting for the artist. (Like you didn’t know that, but none of your readers do…)

  10. Jakay says:

    There seem to be more strangely coiffed men in leather jackets and ripped jeans than Bob Mackie glitter girls this year. But lots of “sing a verse slow and sad and then the dance break kicks in,” too.

  11. DJ Doena says:

    Re: Batty Voting: No country can vote for themselves, but “friends” can vote for each other and always have been. So you’ll see a lot of block-building, like the Balkan’s voting for one another and so forth.

    • Zoe says:

      Yep . And the voting is very political. Last year I thought the German singer deserved higher votes but she got almost no votes due to the Greek/German mess last summer. I am greek and think it was unfair. Anyone can go to youtube and see how political it was. Also the article should mention that voting has been going on for a while now.

  12. Bark Star says:

    Dear America: Please dont bother. There are so many other and better things you can do with your time, rather than watching this.

  13. David H says:

    The only way that crap song from Ukraine wins is because of its political message, and the Eastern bloc countries wanted to send a message to Russia. So much for leaving politics at the door. So many other good songs, though – Bulgaria, Netherlands, Spain, Cypress, Austria among them. Hope we get to see the show every year from now on.

  14. Robert Hobbs says:

    When does the US get an entry? OZ already has one!
    My favorite was Laura Tessoco’s “What’s The Pressure” (Belgium).

    Proof that bad music is a worldwide phenomenon.
