Eurovision 2010

Eurovision is a freaking joke-goldmine to me!

Norway won last year, so they hosted. This was their song this year

Sweden didn’t get in this year, and usually they’re among the favourites. The Swedes were not happy about that at all, and there has been a lot of talk about boycotting Eurovision next year. The song that didn’t get in

Finland didn’t get in either, but they didn’t make much of a fuss. Their song

Iceland gave 12 points to Denmark but only got 3 in return. They were not happy about that at all, and they have made Facebook groups just to complain about that. Their song

Denmark ended up as number 4, which pissed the Swedes off because the song writer originally offered it to them but they said no, so instead Denmark chose it. Denmark’s song

Spain had trouble with a fan who ran onto the stage and meddled with the dancers.

Greece had a very testerone fuiled show and “OPA!” has become a quite popular word.

UK came in last as they often do. They say it's because everybody hates the. Their song

Turkey got in second place, and will be remembered for a long time for their “robot”

And of course Germany won with the song “Satellite”
I have to admit that I love when countries that enter with a minimal stage show wins. :)

Oh, and a small group of Americans had sneaked in were waving American flags. So out of place and silly. :XD:

And let's never forget the wonderful flash dance
Gotta' love the woman in the Swedish house who waves a gay pride flag. Oh Sweden, your closet is so transparent. :XD:

I can estimate the dimensions of Sweden's tub of ice cream based on how large it is compared to his head, and that their heads make up 40% of their bodies when they have legs. From here, it can be calculated that Sweden is eating around 66 liters of ice cream.

Of course it's Eurovision. What other event is this crazy?

America, stay out of Eurovision disputes. We've got too many blasted singing competitions in this country without getting involved in the big one across the pond.

fun fact the song “Satellite” was written by an American Julie Frost and a Dane, John Gordon
which is pretty funny consider it was Germany's song

I would also cry if it meant ice cream.

Hahaha, I love Finland's face in the second panel (subtly steals ice cream)
