Yeah, but at least people didn’t boo after their performance this time, right? Also, this year’s most blatant buddy politics must have been Russia’s twelve points for Belarus. No one could possibly think that was a good song. Belarus have an impressive pedigree of producing some of the worst stinkers of the contest.
Danish humour is weird but kind of liked they ribbed Graham Norton. Also think they came off surprisingly creepy when they were saying all the things they knew about the acts sounded like they were stalking them.
Oh, that must have been the most awkward thing of the whole show! It wasn’t just weird, but they were pretty much consistently wrong about everything. Then the poor performers had to pretend that they had a clue what she was talking about.
“I’m sorry, but I don’t know where that is.”
“Oh, but it’s your favourite Chinese restaurant!”
“Oh… yeah… now I recognize it…”
“Yes, where you always buy the chicken!”
“The soup is amazing!”
“Well, we made you chicken” (deal with it.) “And look who’s bringing it in for you! It’s your good friend, chef X!”
“Oh, yay! Hi, erm… person! We totally know you!”
It was one of those things where I didn’t want to watch, but couldn’t look away. I loved it almost as much as I hated it.
