I don't know if this has been posted around here yet, but every Saturday at 8pm Twitter gets together to watch a previous Eurovision together.

So far they've done it for the 2013, 2006, 2009 and 2015 contests with the EBU making a Premiere of the last two on YouTube as they've joined and supported #EurovisionAgain.

It's been the #1 trending topic in the UK, and it even hit #7 in the US; The Huffington Post UK have even written about it; Alexander Rybak and Daz Sampson(?) themselves annouced their respective contests; and last week it saw over £3600 being raised for charity.

They've ran their own voting since the second weekend with Carola winning over Lordi, however "Fairytale" and "Heroes" have won their respective years.

It's hands-down the most fun I've been having in isolation and a good replacement for the usual Eurovision festivities. I'm hoping it grows bigger and bigger so that we can get a semblance of a meaningful vote for the 2020 songs on May 16th! cheer.gif

I always miss out on these haha but I did watch the 2009 one a little later and I was surprised to see how many quality songs were in that final!

Man, I always tend to forget how damn trippy the mid-to-late 90s actually was. I'm actually starting to wonder if I accidentally ate some magic mushrooms and we're only two entries in - add those damn trippy sequences between the acts too. laugh.gif

I'm the only one watching this but Austria's One Step is an... entry. The blue glittery crop top, pants and with a dark blue coat is a fashion choice. laugh.gif

OK, how did Bosnia and Herzegovinian's entry Goodbye not get disqualified for that pretty blatant sample?!

Oh, Blond. I recall them not doing that well, but in the Swedish press it was a bit like "at LEAST we're not Norway" IIRC laugh.gif

Also, you could land an airplane on the long haired ones forehead.

What was it ripping off? It was my second favourite of the night, but partly because that title + Bosnia was getting me all emotional cry.gif #ripBosnia

It's a complete rip-off of a famous 60s song that I can't remember the title of at the moment. It's really obvious once you hear it though.

Iceland's entry is my new favourite best/worst entry. It's hilariously horrible.

I thought the Dutch entry had the most obvious rip-off. Live and Let Die right from the off!

It sounded to me like Peggy March's "I Will Follow Him"

That's exactly the song I was thinking about! It's so obvious:

I really enjoyed the 97 rewatch and glad that some older contests are being uploaded in HD. Was initially reluctant to get involved cos I don't subscribe to the cult of personality of the guy running it but it was actually really fun

I've got a hunch it's 2007 but I'm prepared to be proven wrong in about half an hour!

Providing I don't fall asleep I shall be here for this, especially as it's looking like a 2000's contest, hoping for 2008!
