Fun talk:Eurovision Song Contest

(from other page) The Eurovision song contest happens every year in May and includes the weirdest shit Europe has to offer. Be it a gal with a beardWikipedia or weird Heavy Metal monstersWikipedia (both of them won, incidentally). So it should really come as no surprise that this event has come under criticism from right wing "protectors of family values" who hate the fact that it is very popular with LGBT Europeans. However, the Eurovision song contest (or esc) is also often used for political statements by authoritarian regimes as seen by the event held in Baku, Azerbaijan. The quality of the songs is questionable most of the times, but ABBA was one of the groups who started there carreer their. Voting at the esc is often subject to politics and some countries will always give each other twelve points (the highest number).

Convert to a fun:page. Otherwise, unless you have a bunch of conspiracies going on about it, too off mission. CorruptUser (talk) 20:53, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

There is debate about the politics behind almost every song. When Conchita won everybody booed the Russian song (which was not that bad) and people celebrated Conchita like the next messiah. And there are the political votes. The Scandinavians always give points to themselves. And the Irish always give point to England. And the Russian homophobes hate it (talk) 21:13, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

scandinavians gives points to each other, the Irish do to English. You forgot the Balkan countries who have always been super BFFs always vote for each other. Its as if countries closer to each other with similar cultures might have similar tastes in music. Obvs politics. How else can we explain nui points for the god awful that definitely should have won.
