Eurovision 1971

Eurovision 2013 is now decided, so it's time for us to make fun of another past winner.

Just remember: the contest ain't over till the fat Severine sings.

Extra points for finding four clones of John Travolta, circa Saturday Night Fever, as her backup singers.

As one who is forced (tied up in a chair with eyelids propped open with toothpicks) to watch this monstrosity each and every year I can only say that back then the contest was about SONGS and not about jumping around the stage dodging laser beams and pyrotechnics while holding instruments and lip-syncing to some sound track to the lemming-like adulation of hundreds of glow stick waving drones (not the flying kind) egging them on from the peanut gallery.

To be fair... they did a better job of sticking to the script this year than in years past but, still, a serious waste of time & energy.

Nothing can compare to "My Lovely Horse", the could-have-been entry for Ireland in 1996.

Amazingly, the captcha is eur98ope.

Euro-Weird .. all I can say. You all have some "interesting" things via TV across the big pond.

@BD: When they're using tax payers' €€s they don't have to worry about quality!
