Graham Norton outs him self as anti-Australian

Post by veya_victaous on Tue May 10, 2016 10:39 am

GRAHAM Norton has slammed Australia’s involvement in the Eurovision Song Contest, as organisers announced Justin Timberlake would perform during the final.

Speaking on the red carpet at a UK TV industry award night, the popular light entertainment talk show host said he did not understand Australia’s involvement in the competition.

“Get rid of Australia,” The Sun quoted him as saying. “I know some countries aren’t technically in Europe but, come on — Australia is on the other side of world.”

“Last year they said it was a one-off as it was a celebratory anniversary and you think, ‘OK’, but they are back again.

“What’s that about? People go, ‘Oh you are so anti-Australia’. I’ve got nothing against Australia. I just think it is kind of stupid.”

Although the contest has traditionally been a European event, it has accepted entries from as far afield as Israel and Morocco in the past.

Norton’s rant came as Eurovision organisers announced that Justin Timberlake would be performing at the final this weekend — another sign of the “internationalisation” of the competition.

Organisers say Timberlake will take the stage during Saturday’s competition “as an interval act” with his new single, Can’t stop the feeling.

The annual competition, known for its peculiar blend of techno beats, rock ballads and bubblegum pop, attracted more than 200 million viewers last year.

This year’s contest in Stockholm will air in the 42 participating countries, plus China, Kazakhstan, Portugal, New Zealand and, for the first time, the United States.

Dami Im is representing Australia with her song Sound of Silence, with online polling putting her among the top five contenders.

Show Producer Sven Stojanovic says Timberlake’s appearance is made extra special because Swedish songwriters Max Martin and Shellback have co-written and co-produced his song.

“We are proud to welcome one of the world’s greatest artists! It is an honour and an inspiration to all of us”, said Martin Österdahl, Executive Producer for the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest.

Aussie contender Dani Im has been mooted as a strong contender for the Eurovision top five.

I had to go find a image of this dude...wasn't sure
what/who he was; so he's just a British man paid
to do talk shows type of guy?  Not sure, that he's
an actor/comedian/movie star/sitcom...but he seems
to be on TALKING shows! 
So what's his beef with Australia --- has he ever
been there?

Oh for goodness sake! He isn't against Australia - he even says he isn't agaisnt Australia!
I am NOT against Australia but I agree with him!

China, USA, Austrailia - NOT IN EUROPE.

It's the Eurovision Song Contest. For European countries. It's been going for years and I have no idea why they've started changing it.

If Oz and US and China want a song contest a make their own!!!

This irritates me. Someone says "Oh I don't think Obama should be over here spouting on about Europe!" and all of a sudden that someone is anti-American Rolling Eyes

Yes, like it's been for the last half a century. What's wrong with that?
It's a EUROPEAN song contest.

It is now not the same any longer, so they may as well change the name, Americanise it, like they do with everything else, and that's the end of that.

hi

HER MAJ'S 90th Birthday celebrations are under way...

SO NOW we have Graham Norton wanting to remind everyone over there that he can be just as big a Queen !


NEVERMIND that such "European" countries as Israel and Turkey have appeared on there over the years..

OR THAT it was the Eurovision people themselves who invited Australia to send over an entry...


CONSIDERING the number of Aussie and Kiwi celeb's that Graham Norton regularly has on his show, maybe he should be a little wary of "biting the hand that feeds him" -- or maybe the likes of Nicole Kidman, Hugh Jackman, Chris Hemsworth and Kylie Minogue should start charging appearance fees ?

Who says people agree that Israel and Turkey should be allowed entry?
Absurd reasoning, though Turkey is going to be accepted into the European Union.
Not that it matters, Graham Norton is right, its not the "Worldvision contest" or the "Upsidedownvision Contest", but the "Eurovision Contest"

Morning 4Ever.   Actually Graham Norton is a really funny guy and has compared the contest for the UK ever since Terry Wogan couldn't do it anymore.   No way am I against Australia, neither is he, but it's the European Song Contest, for some reason a couple of years ago they let people in further afield, and then last year because it was a special year, they let countries in from even further.   If they want to do that, stop calling it the European Song Contest, but I think it would be a shame, it's a bit 'something we love to hate' and moan about, and an institution in Europe.   I'm with Graham.   They are even having a row about which counties are going to be allowed their flag FGS.

Well said sassy and Didge.

It's not rocket science and there's nothing stopping any of these other countries having their own song contest!!

UNFORTUNATELY for you l'il ol' munchkins over there, it's up to the committee that runs the competition, as to who they invite in -- and not to any ordinary punters' hurt feelings..

JUST IMAGINE how boring it may have been if they only included those countries that people liked or wanted --  imagine what it might be like if Tommy or Stormee and their ilk were appointed to their organising committee !

Honestly, these Irish people eh?

To be fair, he does have a point. It's supposed to be the Eurovision song contest, not the worldwide song contest. It's already so long that they have to split it, and it's still so long at the final that you forget the first song by the time you've heard the last one. There was one year when I'm sure that Terry Wogan didn't realise that it had ended because it just went on and on.

I do think the UK song is good this year - surely we must get some decent votes this time. Laughing

this is about the silly old Europeans and twisting their noses Razz Razz Razz Razz Razz
cause we can tongue tongue tongue
Or it was until we realised we were on a score board
(Aussies have an primal drive to reach the top of any score board the see Australia on Rolling Eyes )
So now we want to win it  
Plus it give the old X-factor winners something to do  geek

Ah yes - Guy Sebastian maybe? He wasn't too bad.

There was a one-off "World Idol" some years ago, but Guy only came 7th. Our own Will Young came 5th. Everyone was completely blown away by the Norwegian though - Kurt Nilsen. He even beat Kelly Clarkson. Razz

I am NOT against Australia but I agree with him!

China, USA, Austrailia - NOT IN EUROPE.

It's the Eurovision Song Contest. For European countries. It's been going for years and I have no idea why they've started changing it.

If Oz and US and China want a song contest a make their own!!!

Down here in Texas we have sangin competitions. Whoever finishes their beer first gets to sang. Whoever forgits the words first, loses.


That's a normal girls night out for me cheers
