    We dont need separat entys in the Main contest,


    But I have always thought that for the Uk to do well the Uk should enter a song that sounds Scotish.

    even use Bag pipes in a Mike Oldfield sort of way.

    Well we had the perfect song in 2007 - Cyndi (My Heart is Yours) but it was rejected for Sccoch flying the flag for you :( A powerful ballad went on to win that year....

    If anyone wants to watch the performance they have put the jury version up as obviously the middle part of the song was never performed on the night. The staging was pretty good again the crowd were clapping and singing along.

    Lets hope next year we put forward a stronger song and we actually get to perform it on the night so we can be judged by everyone on a level playing field.

    But the UK were offered a chance to sing again to keep it on a level foot and potentially increase their chances of more votes, but they declined. the person running on stage was disappointing but if they are quick enough it can happen at any event. My main concern was how the hell did he manage to get a backpack into the arena, surely they should have been banned for general safety, checked or not...

    Yeah, uh, next year ESC, politically wise, is going to be controversial for sure. 

    Also, they already did the contest in Jerusalem back in 1999. They might try switching to Tel Aviv and tbh, for safety reasons, it would be better to do so. 

    I guess it all depends on venues. Not sure what both cities have currently. In 1999 they used the same venue that hosted the 1979 contest in Jerusalem and that was way to small in 1999 so wouldn't really do it next year. The norm seems to be a 12000+ arena.

    Would love to see Dana International feature somehow in the contest. Perhaps as host :) 

    The UK deserved its third from last place... not even any points from Ireland or Australia

  4. I agree with Rols and Robs here guys, as much as i would love a full bid book comp, i think that with the board as it is atm, something less time consuming, quicker and more fun for most people would be something like a logo comp or torch design etc.

    The trouble with the world cup logo comp is that now that the logos are standardized to the trophy template, it does pose some issue around limits of design. After that higglty piggly, we dont know who we are so lets just have a mix of everything we can ever think of, Birmingham handover, perhaps  2026 logo comp for #BRUM lol might be a good starter. Plus there is always the Eurovision and WC 2018 sweepstake ( oh, its all happening since ive been back :) )

  5. Right you lot

    Its been 6 months since anything was posted here and this site has been going down the gurgler for way to long now. Time to get our acts together and make this again the place where we can share our joy of all things Olympics and sporting events.

    Shall we have a good old comp to get everyone's spark back? Logo design, Torch Design, full games bid?
