    Waylon doesn't mind going again. Hell yes

    Send him with the other women from the Common Linnets again. Do a similar song and hopefully you'll win. :)

    They didn't end on a good note at all. Seems like a love thing tbf but they never wanted to clear that up.

    But I am expecting Ilse DeLange to join solo sometime in the future.

    Ah, that's a shame. They were the best act you've sent in recent years.

    Quite an interesting article there. Looks like the old voting system wouldn't have changed much. I was completely against the new voting system but I think I've slowly come round it it and actually quite like the extra suspense it creates. Just wish they could find a way for the juries to watch the live final instead of the rehearsal.

    I am still a bit sad tbf. I really want Eurovision to become a legit song contest. And while the last few years were looking very promising, I feel like yesterday they took it 10 steps back.

    Might be the first time a country suffers from not taking part in the semis

    The most disappointing part is that there were no hilariously amazing songs this year. May have peaked last year with Romania and Croatia.

    While there were a handful of songs I really liked, I think the whole standard dropped from last year, which had some right bangers.

    It was definitely a bad year but in some ways that made it more competitive.

    I'd say the big 5 suffer every year from not being in the semis. They should really stick the whole song live in the interval rather than chatting for 2 minutes then the song for 1 minute.

    I thought Moldova was impressive but it is 10 times as impressive when you see the side angle showing what they were doing behind the doors.

    I really liked this. Also liked how he squeezed in one of his sly digs at the contestants once again

    Bosnia showing why all the countries are happy with the Big 5 auto-qualifying. They're struggling to pay their current small contribution.

    The Icelandic GK saving Messi's penalty gives the perfect excuse to post the song he directed in 2012.



    He should probably stick to football...
