I love the Eurovison Song Contest. For a few hours every year, the countries of the EBU gather and entertain us with songs good and bad.
I would love to go to a final. The chances of th UK winning are virtually zero these days, and travel to foreign countries is expensive and not fun on your own. But who knows…
The interval can be a highlight. No-one who saw it will ever forget Riverdance. However, this is one of my favourites.
It is something that makes me well up every time I watch it. I know the UK contribution is rubbish, but the one from Hamburg is great, as is the man on the rock.
Best is Dublin. It’s great when the camera lifts up and there are all those people, even in the windows.
And it’s a real party spirit at the end, with all the audience joining it. Brilliant.
