Ok guys the Eurovision semi-finals are under way and some cracking songs (good and bad) have been performed.

Who does everyone think will win?

Put a cheeky bet on Ukraine as Europe may sympathise with them.

Favourite song is the Netherlands so far, reminds me of Lady Anabellum.

Nah, don't think so Steffan.

I suppose one of those made-up countries from Eastern Europe will win.

The last great UK song was Love Shine a Light.

Best Eurovision song was Rock 'n' Roll Kids for Ireland in 1994.

The good % of Europe will never vote for us and he say's so. Well done Norton.

Ireland and the UK will not win for a long time with the current voting system. Even if the songs/singers are regarded as the best by their peers. Shame

We should stop putting the millions into it.

Right which European country has the most neighbours? I'll go for them to win.

If only we weren't an island nation...but then, how would we rule the waves?

Rule the waves or win Eurovision? It's a tough one...

Some have been for a while, but 90% of the winners and those within 10 places in the last 10 years. Do you think they have been better?

Let's face it. It is a friends vote. Pull out.

We're not part of that European landmass, any more than we are with Africa.

Let the Europeans compete in this contest, and we Brits shall play cricket.

I don't think it is, I think that is a myth. Yes some countries vote a certain way but it doesn't dictate the winner. In the last 10 years Germany, Greece, Finland, Sweden, Azerbaijan, Austria and Norway have won. If it was who had the most friends then the same countries would win but they don't and it usually is the best act on the night that wins.
