Thanks Sweden. Graham Norton who hosted the BBC coverage queried why Australia would be in Eurovision, a fair point. But if we shouldn't be there, neither should Israel.
The hosts were very good and I thought our own Sam Pang and Julia Zemiro were much better this year than last.
Could we possibly do it?
Poland was the next out, and then sadly us. Damn and botheration. Russia was pipped at the post by the winner, Ukraine.
R slept on and I suggested that he record the repeat that night and watch at least the last hour. Later I pondering the possible political implications of Ukraine beating Russia and next year's Eurovision being hosted by Ukraine.
