GERMANY WINS EUROVISION SONG CONTEST / UK COMES LAST

UK entrant Josh Dubovie

The cheesy but watchable Eurovision Song Contest took place last night and Germany won, while the United Kingdom only scored 10 points and came in last.

Germany has emerged triumphant at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest as the UK limped home in last place.

Teenager Josh Dubovie, representing the UK with a song penned by Pete Waterman, scored just 10 points.

Speaking after her win, 19-year-old Lena, who scored 246 points with her song Satellite, said: “I’m so happy and so thankful and so grateful.”

Acts from 25 countries took to the stage during the event, hoping to impress voters from across Europe. Continue Reading…

I really don’t understand why they invited Pete Waterman on board to write the song. The song sounded like something that would have been released back in his songwriting heyday (late 80s) alongside song writing partners Stock and Aitken.

Back then That Sounds Good To Me would have stormed the UK single chart. But we are now in 2010 Pete!!!

It wouldn’t surprise me if he went back in to the Stock, Aitken and Waterman vault, picked this track, dusted it off and presented it to poor Josh Dubovie as being something fresh and new.

Awful.

The winning song (below) was awful too.  Why is she singing like Kate Nash / Lilly Allen?

The Turkish entry should have won.

  1. Actually composed by Waterman Stock (minus Aitken) and Steve Crosby. Anyhoo, never cared for Eurovision, as long as it doesn’t hold precedence over Doctor Who, I’m good.
