Aaaaand we're off

Austria -well Natalie does a good job of mincing round the stage in her silver jeans that are slightly too tight for her, but the stage looks fab with , if you can imagine Chinese lanterns that get thrown up to the sky full of light -  It's a snoozefest of the highest order but considering the repetitive lyrics of this sing, I can't imagine it doing anything other than sending the European Family to sleep.   It may not get any better than this, sadly. 

Edit 1 - They are going to do three run throughs of every song, which should fill your 30 minutes rehearsal time though - on the screen she hasn't done a great deal of anything.

Edit 2  -  I'm sadly right - It wont get any better than the Chinese Lanterns getting into the sky - when ORF look at this they will think, but won't say " No Chance"


  1. Greetings from the gloriously sunny Eurovision city of Birmingham. I can't think of a better way to start my birthday than to read your ramblings from 'almost being at rehearsals'. Here's to a fun fortnight! Enjoy. x

  2. Before we all get too excitable, can we please agree that anyone using the word 'smorgasbord' has to suffer a forfeit? First offender has to spend the night in the boot of a Volvo.
