eurovision.tv website looked pretty darned good on the big TV.
There has been lots of talk about this being an 'austerity' Eurovision, but penny-pinching did not show up on the screen. The show looked super, and host Petra Mede kept things running well. She had a great line, too, explaining that Sweden was a peaceful country, except for "the recent civil war when Malmö was chosen for Eurovision over Stockholm." That played well with the Malmö crowd!
There were a few amazing acts, Romania being top among them. (It's worth clicking on that link, trust me.) Also look at Montenegro, who didn't make it through, unfortunately. Oh, and Ukraine had a giant. Really.
Now for the good acts. Sooz's favorite was Denmark. We both thought Ireland had a classic euro-disco number. I rather liked Norway, myself. In fact, all the Scandinavian countries made it through to the final.
It's going to be a great show and we're going to have a fun Eurovison party in the Texas sunshine.
