Time for Eurovision to go global?

It think its time that the rest of the world got involved with our wonderful song contest! I think Eurovision should go global.

The rest of the world needs to fully experience the mutual loathing and antipathy that only Eurovision can inspire!!!

You could have a rule, which stopped people voting for anyone in their own continent which would limit politcal voting.

Politcal voting? Now perhaps people in the rest of the world thought this was about picking the best song??? How naive!!!



I see huge potential for an Anglo voting block...with Britain and its 'special relationship' with the USA, trading 12 points with them...then we can pick up good points from the ex-pats in the likes of Australia, Canada, New Zealand...the Japanese seem to think we are Ok, so maybe some points there too...

Re: Time for Eurovision to go global?

I couldn't agree more!

Watching the ESC is like a time warp in more ways than one, what with the outdated songs and the "we're still in the Cold War" voting cartels.

Me and my mates have a Eurovision party every year and its a scream, we wouldn't miss it for the world. I think this year the competition surpassed itself - we'd laughed ourselves out before the competition ended.

Thats applies to any global event.

My plan is, everyone will be so busy hating the Americans, they will forget about hating us Brits for a while.

What 'global events' exist bar the Olympics?

Anyway, it would be a laugh, but it will never happen

I've really gone off it since the voting became more political than even in the last few years.

The UK got 21 zeros, a 7 from Ireland (neighbours ) and a random 12 from Malta!!!

I love you Malta!

“Everyone else is cheating so why dont we”

Like I said Japan might vote for us, when the world cup was held there, only Japan and Brzail were more popular than England there...though that had a teensy bit to do with David Beckham...now there is an idea...can Beckham sing? Cant be any worse than his wife...

Right Beckham it is...we can win this thing, away from the influence of the Warsaw Pact...

Well they didn't change the rules to cheat, I think what you're proposing is much worse.

Personally, I think until we put out a half decent song there is no point complaining. Didn't we come third in 2002 or 2003?
