...this year eurovision was a total fail ... and the political interests came to the surface one more time ... and i don't think germany was worth to win... everything in black .. and plain... com' on ... tell me with honest ...which song did you like...
no..it's not only the music..but the scene..eurovision it's a festival...and not only the scene was plain...but it was black... all in black... and why wasn't she happy and cheerful when she won instead of holding and lugging the German flag ?i think this was unacceptable and very cheeky from her... what do u think about this.. ?
She was happy simple as that! She was so happy and overwhelmed she didn't even know what to do. It was black indeed. What's so bad about it? Why should she not hold the German flag? She IS german and won for Germany, so why not?
Mhhmmm... actually I think that this ESC prove that it is indeed about the music and not the country. Germany has always been one of the last ones and we always got only a few points. However, this time, we got many points even from the eastern countries.
But I can't get rid of the thought that our winning has something to do with the fact that the points were given by a jury to 50% for the first time. Otherwise, we probably wouldn't have get that much points
Well, I actually meant, that you automatically support the artist of your country - at least that's what a lot of people do. And so it's less about liking the music of your country's participant and a bit more about ... the country (damn, 3 times this word in one sentence)
But it's the same with football.
I personally didn't like the german song that much - well I didn't really like any of the songs except turkey - but I still hoped germany would win. If I'd lived in turkey, it sure would be the other way round. That can be something positive, of course, but I don't really like it. I guess I'd prefer a contest without mentioning the artist's home-country, but it would be pretty impossible not to let the public find it out themselves. And also, that's not what Eurovision is about - a contest not only about the artist but also the country is what makes it stand out from other shows in my opinion
Not sure about the Jury - but at least it wasn't that much of a close race between Germany and turkey in terms of points.
I thought that Romania and Turkey had a fantastic chance at winning. I thought that Germany's entry was a flop, but I think that it might be a British thing. It seems to have proven very unpopular over hear, even before the results came out.
Strangely enough, I half-agree with your comment on our entry. He's a complete unknown to us and the song was crap and the backing singers were a bit off-key. So was he, actually, towards the end. I expected to be a little high as I thought that Azerbaijan's entry was totally out of tune.
Yeah. In Germany everybody loves her for her British accent, but it seems that the British people don't like it when someone tries to imitate them
As for your British entry... I really didn't like it. The song indeed was crap in my opinion. For Eurovision it probably was too much mainstream, but I am not sure. People want to see some extraordinary songs and it wasn't like that at all. Just my 2 cents
What? That was supposed to be a British accent? Oh, my. And since when did speaking a British accent equal talent in a song competition? I can't actually understand a word that she's saying, except for "Aoh, oh, oh..." And even then I'm not sure that's what she's saying.
I don't think that we mind that people try to do British accents, but it is the fact that too many just get it so wrong and yet they get praised for being "spot-on". It would be like any country . For instance, ordinarily when we try to impersonate a German person, we have a tendency to not actually pronounce any of your words correctly but just shout and make things up.
Yeah... it's funny when people try to speak German And I guess, it's the same when people try to speak English. Luckily enough, most of the Europeans don't speak English natevily, so they can't judge on them
A thing that surely contributed to winning was that she can make people smile in a way only few can
