People on FaceBook are furious. Razz

The way the Swedish entry is chosen is half by phone-votes and half by an international jury. The song which gets the most total amount of points wins.

Counting only the phone-votes the "weeaboo trap", as Raya put it, won by a landslide.


However, since Yohio barely got any points from the jury, he only got second place. So the Swedish entry to this year's Eurovision will be this song:

It's 'for you', but knowing the artist, it's probably intentional.

That's still really pushing it. Georgia got disqualified in 2009 for having a song called "We Don't Wanna Put In" (think about it), and Ukraine came close in 2007 and had to persuade the EBU the lyrics were 'lasha tumbai' and not 'Russia goodbye'. I wouldn't be suprised if the EBU had a few words to say about it.

@Sah: Wait a minute, I...I think I know Yohio from somewhere...



Bah, I can't believe Yohio didn't win though! That's the big complain with using juries in Eurovision, they always have a disproportionate amount of power compared to the people voting. I mean, what's the point of even having a television vote if you still can't win even with a landslide victory? Especially since juries tend to consist of senior members of the music industry, who are conservative and 10 years behind the current music tastes.

can we agree now that on Saturday night/Sunday there are to be no spoilers in the Skype chat? I don't wanna sound whiny, it's just that we don't get the broadcast until Sunday night our time. Sad

Besides, it will just be endless ranting that this contest is fixed yet again...

Okay, nothing completely horrifying so far. I actually liked Austria's song. This is probably a trap to lure me into false safety.

Didn't Croatia's singer fight the Green Lantern once? Or do Croatians just casually dress like supervillains?

The wormhole into '95 that transported the CG effects into our time was also probably where Belarus' entry came from.

I think Moldova's singer's dress is literally designed to hide the fact that she has no legs.

"Oh hey, Serbia! Serbia are usually really good at Eurovision, this should be- WHAT THE HELL IS THIS."

It's like Eastern European lolita...

EDIT: The UK commentator: "I could see that one's red knickers, and I didn't like it."

Oh look, all the ex-USSR countries made it through. REV UP THAT BLOCK VOTING.

A bit sad Austria didn't make it through, I thought it was a good song (I'll never get to see the Eurovision final in Vienna Sad). It's great the Netherlands qualified though. Amsterdam 2014!

Also, from one of the interval bits, I think this is the most Swedish person I have seen in my life:

They don't even broadcast the semis here until Friday and Saturday night. Razz Ah well, my dutch friend is coming over and she and I are going to get hyped for it and I need to purchase some vodka.

The SBS website very kindly had some recipes such as apple cider tart and of course, Swedish meatballs.

MOLDOVA

yessss

i'm not that hyped about their performance this year but they're the nation I always support so I'll stick to my guns.
