Is anyone watching the live final on BBC One at the moment? Those Russian grannies sounded bloody awful - that probably means they'll win! So far, I'd say Iceland have a good chance of winning, their entry looked like your typical Eurovision winning fare - big production, ballady type of thing.

Anyway, feel free to comment here Eurovision 2012 Live Final Thread 3559488474 Cyprus are on now - is that a man in drag?

Song 10 "She's like an Italian Amy Winehouse..." In fact she's blatantly taking her off by the looks, but not in a good way...

Next is Estonia's answer to Gary Barlow...at least he's singing in his native language. That's one thing I miss about Eurovision (besides Wogan), a lot of acts sing in English now.

Hmmm not bad. At least they're a live band. They've pinched that intro from somewhere though, and I can't think where right now. She's kind of like Sheryl Crowe isn't she?

I don't think Greece will win with that! Even if Cyprus give them 12 points. Here's another fave from Sweden...

Yeah Brahma, they can't afford to host it next year. She's got a fantastic set of lungs on her...song's not much though. Let's hope she doesn't get the sympathy vote!

That German entry singer is a bit flat in places. I'm sure the credits said written by Jamie Callum (Brit jazz singer)...? Think Graham would've mentioned that though if true.

Jedward look like they've walked off the set of a dodgy 50s Sci-Fi B-movie, and sound like they're on an '80s teen movie soundtrack...
