Eurovision 2017 Weekend

Fun at the Eurovision 2017 Weekend

Hey guys!

I hope you are well and have had a good weekend. So it was Eurovision last night and Portugal won. It’s become something of a tradition for the past 6 or 7 years that I watch the show, it’s one of those marmite kind of things, people either really love it or hate it. I think you’ve got to take it for what it is. I thought that this year’s show there was no stand out winner, There wasn’t that one powerful song that stood out which there seems to have been for the past few years.

My favourite has to be Moldova, they had some band called Sunstroke Project with a happy, up beat real classic piece of Eurovision cheese. It has everything you’d want to see in Eurovision, an addictive beat and lyrics, comedy performers and dancing, the lot! I saw it in the Semi-Final and thought this should do well, but I saw it was 50/1 to win. I decided to put some money on it each way, along with a couple of others which makes the end more exciting. It wasn’t going too well, it wasn’t getting top points from the juries of the 42 countries, but it was picking up a decent number of points every now and then. It was about 7th or 8th place, then it went to the voters points, which is when it got interesting.

If you don’t know how the points work now, basically it’s split up into 2 parts; They have the juries of the countries scoring which makes up one part, then for the next part all the votes from the countries tele-voting is added together to give an overall score for each entry; So even after the first round of scores are calculated it’s still all to play for. They were announcing the scores and Moldova wasn’t getting mentioned which was good, and it actually ended up finishing in 3rd!

You have to check out the video, here it is below, I think you’ll love it 😀
