We will be on holiday in Dubrovnik, and Croatia are in the final so I expect we’ll need to find a pub to watch it (for the first time).

That was quite the show. Hannah W is absolutely brilliant, A Dixon very much less so!

Only pretend. We bounced as members of the production crew were pretending to be the artists interviewed by the real Ms Dixon.

To set the scene for tomorrow, here's a couple of articles reprinted on the ever-brilliant Transdiffusion about the early days of Eurovision (the network, not the contest).

A short 1954 article on the earliest link-ups, and a longer, more technical, one from 1961.

Can’t get the BBC coverage outside the Uk so we’re watching it on HRT1.

Great choice of tunes for the intros so far.

Of all the songs about being possessed by dead Victorian authors, this is one of the best.

Impressive staging, good performance, and catching tune. Reminded me a bit of last year's winner however.
