Vienna in Austria played host to the 60th Eurovision Song Contest this year. I always enjoy watching the Eurovision, this year the songs were all of a reasonably high standard. No real quirky ones or stupid staging, apart from the dancers for Azerbaijan who wore collars and detracted from the vocal performance. Sweden won and Russia came second. My favourite performance and winner for me came from Georgia but in the scoring it only came 11th. I thought Germany were hard done by, they didn't get any points and yet they were much better than the UK entry, which I believe got 5 sympathy votes.
