Eurovision 2014


The main theme of Eurovision 2014 was Eurovision History.

But it also had two smaller themes.
1) The Danish hosts were trying to be a little creepy as a nod to Danish actors always being hired to play villains in American and English films and TV. That was the reason behind the weird stalker segment and shooting fireworks at the commentators.
2) They acknowledged that Eurovision is very popular among gays, which is why it had one female host and two males who were being very *ahem* friendly with each other.

So could it be more fitting that a drag queen who sang a James Bond themed song won?

America in the background is because The Netherlands' song was about as American as Eurovision will allow.

Overall there were quite a few good songs this year, so I encourage you to go look for them.

Well, damn.


Why the hell does GB never win!? You all hate us, don't you!? *Uncontrollable sobbing*
(Seriously. We blame it on the fact that everyone hates us, despite the fact that Northern Ireland isn't even well known. THEY JUST HATE US, OK!? THEY JUST DO! THEY HATE GB SO THEY HATE US!)

I'm not really happy with our song that year. I liked Sweden's better...

RIIIIIISE LIKE A PHEONIX!
Hooray, go Austria!
That one was awesome, though I still must say I prefer Fairytale, which was Norway's winning song a couple years back.

Yeah, in the same year that Russia passed the anti-gay laws, so it was a big punch in the face for their government (word has it that Turkey won't participate anymore because when Sweden once hosted the Eurovision their entertainment included a marriage scene between two men who then kissed - not sure if there's more behind Turkey's refusal to take part, but I haven't seen them in the competition since). Russia has been threatening to quit Eurovision if a) Ukrainians win (and they won this year), if there's some sort of LGBTQ+ stuff (hello!! This has always been a massive draw to the LGBTQ+ community and always will be, so rainbow flags will always be involved - and the rest of Europe loves it). We will not be assimilated to what one country wants. Sorry-not-sorry. Yes, Eurovision is a massive interest of mine and so are LGBTQ+ rights (seeing as I'm pansexual and BDSM-oriented).

@America-sama I'm actually a fan of T.a.T.u, and their lesbianism is just an act (although they do support the LGBT community). However, they are based outside of Russia, sang mostly in English, and are before all of this anti-gay propaganda thing started.

Also, note that "Rise Like a Phoenix" is the most downloaded song in Russia currently, that might goes to show that the people are actually supporting LGBT, and it's the government that is crazy.

@LouThunders Its also ironic given TATU represented Russia in 2003. Maybe even hypocritical territory.
