Out of curiosity, do any countries outside of Europe get to see this farce? It is shown on BBC in the UK, which I know is shown internationally. So if you are outside of the UK, and have seen it, what do you think about the whole thing? Have you seen someone that can sing?
Here in Australia SBS, our free-to-air "multicultural" channel, broadcasts a delayed telecast (with Terry Wogans' commentary) EVERY YEAR.
Viewers ALWAYS contact the station demanding to know when the broadcast is going to be presented so they can plan their Eurovision parties (big gay community in Sydney).
This year they also broadcast the Preliminary Final and the San Remo Song Festival (from Italy). I'm sure I also remember them showing a Junior Eurovision contest in past years.
However, the best part of their Eurovision programming this year was a documentary called "Finland: Zero Points" which followed preparations for the Eurovision 2007 final in Helsinki, "an event that has symbolic meaning for the Finns..."
