We made the mistake one year of letting our middle child watch the Eurovision Song Contest, and now she spends her time watching every countries successful, and the unsuccessful entrants.
Now the UK entry has been announced.
Of course last years compitition was cancelled, so I thought you’d might like to hear Iceland’s entry from last year.....

2 weeks to go until this years “competition” and these are my top 10 predictions.


1. UK will come last again. It’s getting ridiculous. Politics, brexit, wearing the wrong colour of socks… There really is no reason we come last so often, other than corruption within the Eurovision organisation itself. The UK media will spend the next month complaining, then start being all optimistic again come next March.

2. Someone will drop the F bomb live on stage.
I believe last time that happened was when Aqua were the half time show, and “Barbie girl” told her Ken to F off

3. A.J Odudu will announce the scores of the UK jury. An accent that most English speakers have trouble understanding, nevermind the rest of Europe. As bad as using someone from the Scottish Highlands

4. Ukraine will win. With a clear 200 points between them and 2nd place. Purely political of course. Although, at the moment, they won’t be able to host next year.

5. Female singers “wardrobe malfunction”

6. Just because a rock song won last year is no guarantee one will win this year. So all the countries that went rocky this year have wasted their chance. The Rasmus from Finland for example… last heard of in 2003 with “In The Shadows”

7. Subwoolfer from Norway will remove their masks and be revealed as Geordie jokers Ant and Dec..
Ok, I’m stretching things a bit there… but there is a rumour that they are the same people that are behind Ylvis… who had a song “what does the fox say” in 2013
Sorry, that songs in your head now.

8. Quirkiest act is Circus Mircas from Georgia. Will not make it past the semi finals.

9. The Latvian entry “eat your salad” will promote veganism across the world… forcing livestock farmers to ditch rearing animals.. many going out of business and thousands of cows and sheep being released into the wild as there’s no longer a market for the meat.

I’m struggling to think of things now


10. Someone’s staging will go wrong. Either on the backing screen plays wrong clip, or the pyrotechnics go off prematurely, or disastrously overdone.

Somehow I managed to read Ukraine as 'Spain'. Easy enough mistake to make, considering both names use letters from the alphabet.

Makes sense that Ukraine might have problems hosting, although Kyiv seems safe enough given that every world leader is able to walk about it's centre.
