Europe to Lose Eurovison song contest

Post by veya_victaous on Wed Feb 11, 2015 1:04 am




To mark the 60th year of the Eurovision Song Contest, Australia has been allowed to join the competition for the first time. Eurovision is incredibly popular in Australia, although the land of Kylie has never previously taken part in the festival of high camp. This also means that there will be 40 countries competing.
Eurovision Song Contest executive supervisor Jon Ola Sand said:

It’s a daring and at the same time incredibly exciting move. It is our way of saying; let’s celebrate this party together!

At the very heart of the Eurovision Song Contest is the importance of bringing countries together to celebrate diversity, music and culture. We have admired and respected SBS’s support of Eurovision for many years now and wanted to extend the invitation for Australia to join us in this special 60th Anniversary of the Contest. It would be remiss of us to throw the world’s biggest party and not invite our Australian friends, who have such a long history and connection with Eurovision.


If you Photoshop Australia so it's just off the coast of Portugal, letting them into Eurovision kind of makes sense



and they have already made arrangements for WHEN we win  pirat pirat pirat pirat pirat

Laughing So what are we going to get? Something like Tie me Kangaroo Down Sport or something similar? Laughing With a trip to Australia the following year up for grabs I'd say Australia are a sure bet to win it.

We could even get Waltzing Matilda ringing out.

On that subject, anyone ever been to the Waltzing Matilda bar in Kong Kong? Best bar I have ever been in. Started by an Australian and it was as popular as hell with people from all over the world. Been there a few times. The House rules are Hilarious

No-one likes us or votes for us anymore anyway. Maybe the Aussies will bung us a few votes - they like us don't they? Mother country and all that.

Maybe... but I think we are more likely to vote for the craziest

The Song Contests’ popularity initially was credited to Australia’s large European immigrant population; Eurovision providing a moment where the large communities of Greeks, Italians, Turkish, Serbian, Maltese, Irish, etc. could share wonderful moment of nostalgia and national identity. However, by the mid 1990s, the attraction grew into much more – fuelled by second-generation Australians and a younger audience tuning in to listen to the ‘hilarious’ BBC commentary of the infamous Terry Wogan. Due to the high popularity of Wogan over this period, for most Australian viewers the affinity with the British coverage still exists and the views held and discussed in the commentary have created a lasting legacy.

Notice that is from 2011, it is pretty popular here possibly more so than in the UK.. but we think it is a comedy show Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

THE following ciip has a few Aussie classics strung together on auto-play (some of those YouTube afficionados definitely DO have too much spare time on their hands !):

This is of course the start of Europe's reconquest of the entire globe- and getting mouthy colonials like veya to once again sing from the hymn sheet of the civilised continent ;-) Razz

Israel is in the Eurovision Song Contest, and I don't think it's in Europe.
