no apparently Sweden did, I didn't watch it, much top political/geographic these days and much as I like Wogan (and now little fay Wogan) there banter probably doesn't help our singers progress but then our choice of safe bland stuff doesn't help either.
And while I'm in rant mode the Bearded one does at least have a decent beard, better than the dedicated followers of fashion going around with two days scruffy growth and thinking they look good.

afterthought - apologies to anyone two days into cultivating a full set, anyone with skin problems, anyone that can't afford blades

The he-she combination won last year, for Austria, world is getting (even more) strange, but I don't mind how people choose to live as long as no one is hurt and not imposing anything on others.

Nice to see Australia in the show. & Congrats to Sweden, their win in '74 became a mega enterprise https://youtu.be/BQn1gJdVKi4

Sorry Johnny for your candidate, he's most clearly a nice lad who deserved more than anyone to have won, but as Richard points out, you guys had ABBA so anything which comes behind that don't count anymore  *smile*
