Ukraine are being tipped for success with their politically tinged track 1944 sung by Jamala, herself from Crimea. They didn't take part last year due to financial reasons and the on going conflict in Ukraine. The song concerns itself with deportation of the Crimean Tatars in the '40s by Stalin, and the chorus is sung in the Crimean Tatar language. It was accussed of being policitally loaded, which would have made it ineligible for the competition, but the EBU have confirmed it can take part as there is no 'political speech' in the lyrics. Instead, the song is inspired by stories that Jamala was told by her Grandmother, basically. What allegory is intentional is for the viewer to decide...

Apparently it's being broadcast in the US this year and Justin Trousersnake is performing but not competing?

Why? He's going to stick out like a sore thumb being the only talented singer there.

Maybe he wants to gawk at the hot Eastern European and Scandinavian women like the rest of us.

Poland picked the wrong song. We could have had this lovely lady (crap thumbnail)

Instead we get this not so lovely lady.

I have told all my relatives in Cyprus to at least have some sympathy for the uk!

but seriously thus programme is garbage corrupt nonsense based on who your friends not on what talent you have. We have had monsters, Vikings, even a blood transsexual win it. It's just nonsense. Why the uk and other big countries bother is beyond. Me.

There won't be any more of this after Brexit.

Sure they can make an exception for England since Israel & Australia are allowed to participate :)
