Here we go, 25 minutes until Eurovision 2015 kicks off in Austria.

Get the drinks in, it's going to be a long one!

There's a party thread here

SuffolkNWhat Sat 23-May-15 19:38:17

I have a brilliant spreadsheet my friend sent me, it was originally in German I think but basically you score each country for various things (including key change and wind machine). Should be a fun addition to tonight's final.

Thanks Soup Dragon but we enjoyed being in TA last year so are staying here for tonight.

We have got a very non-European Chinese takeaway and very European ales!

I had a cheese and mango pickle sandwich. In my defence the cheese was Emmenthall.

Signing in and ready for action

Raahh Sat 23-May-15 19:54:58

I had a chip butty.

That isn't very Albanian. Or Icelandic.

There are too many threads! I am sticking with this one. Go Norway! I need to win this draw.

No party food here, just a massive bottle of water sad

SuffolkNWhat Sat 23-May-15 19:58:02

European water?

SuffolkNWhat Sat 23-May-15 20:00:44

Vienna really does look like a beautiful city

dillite Sat 23-May-15 20:01:29

Oh it's beautiful. Shut up you muppet! God, I hate him.

Raahh Sat 23-May-15 20:01:29

Here we go!!!!

(last year I tried to make flags with emoticons- they didn't work too wellgrin)

toldmywrath Sat 23-May-15 20:01:30

Cup of tea & home made cake here! I wonder if Graeme got his luggage in time (BA didn't send it on with him)

dillite Sat 23-May-15 20:02:11

British water. Britain is in Europe, so it is European.

Raahh Sat 23-May-15 20:02:42

I have just noticed this goes on til 11.30 this year- is it because it usually overruns, because I'm sure it hasn't been that late before.

downs red bull

dillite why don't you turn off the TV sound & listen to the brilliant Ken Bruce on Radio 2?

alteredimages Sat 23-May-15 20:03:19

Checking in. I am watching the coverage on France 2 and already feeling sorry for Lisa Angell. They have shown everything from her signing the contract with Sony France to a party at the Austrian Embassy in Paris and everyone talking about how great she is and how she is going to do really well. She was obviously revelling in the attention. It's going to be a hard come down when she comes near to last. sad She seems quite nice but the song is the most boring song I have ever heard.

It is weird watching coverage where they play it completely straight.

I have Montenegro in the draw, so no great hopes there either I don't think.

SecretNutellaFix Sat 23-May-15 20:03:23

Hi everyone.

I'm looking forward to this.

ilovesooty Sat 23-May-15 20:03:44

Longest concert ever this year.

HeartsTrumpDiamonds Sat 23-May-15 20:03:55

Vienna is very gorgeous.

How many countries are in the final?

dillite Sat 23-May-15 20:04:32

I don't have a radio. And it would be really weird. I will just keep on raging about Norton on here. And try my hardest not to throw a shoe at the TV.
