“Eurovision is silly joke for years…”

And yet this year, thanks to Putin’s invasion of Ukraine and the winning entry of the Kalush Orchestra, Eurovision has taken on a political and moral significance far exceeding its usual shallow glitz. Another PR own goal by Vladimir Vladimirovich.

Freudian slip?

Milking it for all it's worth.

The 70's and 80's were the golden era. From ABBA to miniskirt-ripping Bucks Fizz and Celine Dion. Went downhill when eastern Europe came into the mix.

You are complaining about Europeans ruining Eurovision whilst getting misty eyed for the ‘golden era’ of Celine Dion, a Canadian, winning for representing Switzerland despite not being Swiss or European.

Wow, so the US has bought this too?

Ukraine was gonna win this even if they just stand on stage or sing "Aitakatta Aitakatta Yeah" by SKB48.

I guess it’s easier for you to believe that.

Conspiracy theories, the comfort blanket of insecure lonely people all over the world.

No, the US has not bought this. The Eurovision result is the everyday people of Europe telling the Putinists and their mouthpieces elsewhere exactly what they think of the Russian invasion of another country. Tough, but you Putin apologists are going to have to swallow it.

Having Celine Dion compete in this contest is more like where Eurovision would be 'going downhill', if it even has. When I visited Ottawa in 2019 I took a tour bus ride and the guide showed us the Notre Dame Basilica of Ottawa (different from the one in Montreal) where Celine made her 'singing' debut at age 10. That's where her career should've ended.
