    Is that the European version of American Idol?

    I would rather be stung to death by fire ants than watch American Idiot, I mean Idol. I'm sorry, that guy that just won has apparently never looked in the mirror, I just died laughing.

    Not by a long shot

    For the record, I'm making efforts not to watch it.

    No the idols are all national. The eurovision song festival is a very old tradition. Each country sending its best contribution for the competition. But it's as ridicule as the idols. In this case the vote is pure political and has nothing to do with the quality of the contestants. :grumpy:

    Let me guess, Greece have given douze points to Cyprus? :bugeye:

    Believe me, Evo, after watching eurovision you'll gladly watch American Idol for the rest of your life! It's that bad! It's not even a musical contest anymore, it's turned into a europe-wide "Lets hate Britain" contest accompanied with some background screeching by a menagerie of strangled animals. You may think I'm exaggerating, but Ireland's entry (which sadly didn't make it to the finals) was Dustin the Turkey.

    You don't watch it, yet you know who won? Hmm...veeery veeery eeenteresting. I don't even know who the contestants were this year, let alone who won. Though, couldn't avoid the story on the radio about it (driving to work at that hour of the morning when no radio station seems to play music, and they all jabber on about stupidity). They were saying something about there being two finalists and the network or whoever sponsors the thing wanted one to win over the other because the one was a nice pushover that would do everything they told them, and the other actually had a mind of his own and wouldn't easily be told what to do. Why even hold a contest when it's really all about the network finding a good lackey to put on THEIR show, not an actual artist? Then again, I guess that really isn't news to anyone after the first few seasons.

    I can honestly say that I have never, ever seen a single episode. I did however play the role of Simon in a spoof of Idol at our teachers talent show last year. To prep for it, I watched as many interviews with Simon I could find on the internet. I ended up liking and respecting the guy immensely. I did happen to see a few clips of Idol within the interviews, so I got the idea.

    By the way everyone said that I was "spot-on, seriously." My best Simon line was:
    "That was Breathtaking! Seriously, you have sucked the life out of the entire building."
