Wogan says he’s quitting. Good riddance! I have watched the english-narrated contest and it is his style that has degraded the status of the contest in the UK. This year he’s whining about Andy Abraham not scoring points even though he made a “performance of a lifetime”. That isnt going to help when the song is 30 years old.
The bottom three have on thing in common, they were the worst songs. The singers from Germany have never sung a pure tone in their life, Isis Gee made me want to jump out of a window and Abraham simply missed the big 70’s revival a good few years back.
Now as for the winner, Bilan’s english is terrible. But Russia made an effort with a producer from Timbalands stable, the worlds best figure skater ever and a world famous violinist. Even if there were no block voting the UK, Germany or Poland still wouldnt win with those entrys.
So I cannot accept Wogan’s complaints, they are simple whines from a man who’s time has passed by. I can understand a hesitation from the BBC to pay their way into next year though.
