Euro' song contest.

Congratulations to the Netherlands. I haven't listened to this contest for years. Its incredibly boring and the results predictable. I am told that England came last again. Why is this? Is it because we are no longer popular in Europe or is it because our pop music is rubbish? I never listen to pop music because its not my sort of thing but some of it must be ok. This country has produced some of the best bands ever so there must be some ability out there.

British entries in recent years have not even been popular in Britain. The latest entry failed to make the UK top 100.

Held in Israel I believe? Since when has Israel been in Europe?

It's "Eurovision", the network which connects different countries' TV systems to each other, not "European".

They dropped the "A Song for Europe" monica some years ago.
