I Must Confess…I’m a Eurovision Tragic!
Welcome to another week of I Must Confess, the linkup where I bare my soul and ask others to do the same.
You may recall a few weeks back I confessed to a love of all things retro. My anodised collection of cookware and my funky coloured glassware are a testament to my love of kitsch.
Today I want to confess that my love of kitsch goes a lot further than just 60’s and 70’s household items.
Yes, I love the Eurovision Song Contest too!
I have watched it religiously for about 15 years now and each year I fall more and more in love with the whole spectacle.
You don’t watch it for the songs, despite it’s name. You watch it for the insane costumes choices, the pointless back-up dancers, the wacky themes, the awkward moments between the hosts.
The big payoff comes at the end of the final when you get to see the live crosses to every voting country in the EU. Apart from appreciating the unfathomable logic behind each country’s voting strategy, you get to watch the truly awful and awkward exchanges between the Eurovision hosts and each country’s representative.
My enjoyment has only been enhanced in recent years with the addition of Twitter.
Truly, if you want the complete Eurovision experience you have to watch it while following the #SBSEurovision hashtag on Twitter. There are some witty armchair critics out there and it just makes the whole experience richer for sharing it with other like minded “experts”.
So if you haven’t already experienced the wonder that is Eurovision, do yourself and favour and try it out. The second semi-final is screening tonight from 8.30pm on SBS One with the Final screening tomorrow night (Sunday) from 7.30pm.
So, it’s time for you to come clean. Are you a Eurovision tragic too? Or do you have something else to get off your chest this week?
– I Must Confess is a link up that will be happening every Sunday – a bit of a homage to my Catholic upbringing, in fact!
– The link will be live from 10pm Saturday night for the whole week.
– You can link up something old or new, we’re not fussy around here.
– Please go forth and share the comment love – it is bloggy crack after all!
