    perhaps the old lady should have sang for Switzerland as their entry was rubbish!

    Loving the show - and what a nice little shack they've found to stage it in... I just wonder about the poor performers who keep getting blasts of air in their faces every time someone leaves the front door open. (I'm sure there's plenty enough hot air being blown about from some of Graham's colleagues in commentary boxes though!)

    Graham just said the orchestra's patron is the first lady. The first lady to do what ... ?

    why dont we get it? the rest of europe dont like us!!!!!!!!!!!!
    we are only good for giving out benifits to people who dont pay in to our system.
    the sooner we pull out of this show the better we will be.
    we will also save money from not propping up the show.

    Britain should give up on the Eurovision Song Contest. The songs we enter now are mundane & boring. Engelbert has a good voice, but it isn't right for the Eurovision Song Contest. People want to hear catchy, bouncy songs, not something to send you to sleep. It really is time for Britain to hang its hat up, or come up with a real catchy song by a bouncy funloving singer.Why haven't the people who decide on who represents us realised the type of songs or singers they choose will never get us to the number 1 position again.

    The Phone vote still has absolutely nothing to do with a song contest. It is simply a love thy neighbour exercise. The jury of singer/songwriters and music professionals should amount to at least 80 per cent of the combined votes. The national phone votes would then make up the remaining 20 per cent.
    Even before a song has been sung, we already know the result. Greece and Cyprus will be swapping top marks as do the Baltic States. The UK song needs to be catchy with an infectious chorus and have a rousing melody that leaves you humming it long after it has ended. This needs to be sung by a singer or group that has a little talent and visual appeal. It's not rocket science. The time has surely come to change the voting system and pick the right tune with a singer that can deliver live in front of 100 million viewers. Failing that we could just carry on as before and try to avoid the bottom three.

    The UK will never win again. FACT! Eurovision although a mildly entertaining show is politically desasterous for any UK entry. as it basically the Balkan states vs Eastern Europe vs Baltic states FACT. No room in the top three for us and not realy supprising when amateur song writers write the winning British song and either a unknown amateur singer singing it or a has been that wants to make a carreer return. As usual we make a mess of things not like in the sixty's.
    Now if we are going to actually prove that the vote system is rigged for those three lots of states we need to have Britains top pop performers and writers competing for a place for Britains entry as a matter of prestiege rather than a joke as it is seen at present. However pursuading our top performers is another matter as they are not bothered because they are making vast amounts from concerts and CD's anyway.
    In reality if Britains top performers cant be bothered then neither should we and we should discontinue our Eurovision participation.

    Agree.A poor song with no catchy verse.If we, the public, can identify that,why can't the so-called experts.The position our song came rightly reflected its lack of appeal.
