Re: ESC 2020 - The Netherlands

I don't mean to hate Azerbaijan but of all entries they sent, the most basic one actually WON the contest and that made me mad.
They're not the only ones. Russia won with what was one of the worst entries ever :sobbing: Literally every single time they've come close would have been a way more deserving winner.
And don't get me started on Norway. We had 2006, 2008, 2013, 2019 and none of them even placed in the top 3 (except that they did actually win this year :eek:h: :cheer: ), and yet that hideous little thing won the contest.

Re: ESC 2020 - The Netherlands

Poland's withdrawal is coming soon I guess - this year's Eurovision final was watched by just a little bit over 1 million people here which is the worst result since 2005.

1,62 million. In 2014-2016 'Polish' semifinals were watched by around 4 million people here so it's a huge decrease.
How come? Did they switch to TVPInfo? :lol:
Or did Poland just became really that homophobic? :rolleyes:

or they could send good songs :shrug:

I would like to hear something more traditional, a powerful yet elegant woman voice flamenco-like or something, not trashy dance / village fiesta crap like this year or Manuel

Good or bad songs is something subjective, however taking part in something you will never win (also maybe because you do not want to) is something beyond my understanding.

Come on
Germany did badly and then we won out of nowhere in 2010.
Now we are back to the bottom, but each year starts from zero.
