Ukraine will clean up the jury vote with all their neighbours, and a lot of the others. Greece can't give 12 points to Cyprus or Macedonia or Albania this year, so that leaves a very clear alternative. 

This is rigged. As it's full of men, I'm not going to vote for it, but as long as they show up, Ukraine has the win in the bag. That doesn't necessarily mean they will host it next year though. Planning the logistics of hosting pan European music contests in the middle of active warzones, isn't really going to get very far.

Ireland 1/5 not to get out of Thursdays semi finals LOL not very promising 

It was an awful song tbh and didn't deserve to go through. With so much irony and hatred expressed in the lyrics, it wasn't going to travel well. It might help a bit if the song had lyrics that made sense, or the singer was a name, or that she had a clue what exactly she was screeching about for 3 minutes, or even if it was well promoted. Just a bit. 

Whelan went through his annual we was robbed rant after the last qualifier was announced. But whether it's Dustin or Brooke Scullion, we don't really do irony very well at Eurovision.

Ireland unlucky not to get through. Credit to her, she made a few changes after her qualifying and livened it up a bit and it made made the song some what presentable. It was never going to be a winner or competitive but I think she deserved to get out of the semi final.
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes an even bigger man to laugh at that man.

We don't have any neighbours to bump up our voted. If we ever going to win or even qualify, we need a very special or unique act. Generic pop song even if performed well is not going to make the cut. 

Send a rock band or a traditional Irish ballad or just a a bloke and his piano and a girl singing a love song together. Or something from LGBT community (Jedward again maybe?). 
You need something that stands out and appeals to people. The Irish one would be like, yeah she did well, ok song if I heard it on radio but not going to pick up the phone for it

I didnt actually see any of it so far this year but in general I like the final, it's good to watch with the family and pick your favourite and the points pary of it is good. It's a gimme for Ukraine this year though which will take the fun our of it .

She's made more semi finals than our glorious rugby team has made World cups so for me it hasn't been a bad year.

The bit I don’t understand is why would anyone want to spend money and pay for the text that it takes to vote.  And millions do and get f**k all in return not even the false hope of winning ten grand.
