Eurovision Song Contest the Video Review

Congratulations to Austria this year for winning the Eurovision Song Contest with their artiste Conchita, the bearded lady.

British entry Molly was Smitten-Downes with a sore throat just one day ahead of the contest and there was a worry that at one point she would use the rhythm method and pull out just ahead of the contest, but on the night, like the true star she isn't, she sang her heart out and sailed into obscurity securing just 40 points landing us in 17th position.

We last won Eurovision 17 years ago in 1997 with Love Shine a Light by Katrina and the Waves. 

This is the longest gap ever for us since last winning.  We've even tried rolling out the big guns in recent years with class acts such as Queen Victoria's favourite, the 79 year old Engelbert Humpadink and ever tuneful Bonnie Tyler.  Some of us fear that until we wheel out Cilla Black on a gurney, we shall not win again.

Enjoy the video.
