Greek mythology is fascinating; it never ages, and it’s never boring.

Eurovision begins.

Opening ceremony. Showing the construction of the hall. The two female presenters are beautiful! As is the last year’s winner.

Competition beings!

UK performing. “Love Will Set You Free”.

I’m not sure why Engelbert Humperdinck has an odd accent that sounds very little like a British accent. Hmm.. well, it will fit in with the Euro-accents. The ballad is not to my taste, but he seems to be doing okay. The dancers in the background are annoying! Impressive fireworks make up for it slightly.

Hungary performing. “Sound of Our Hearts”. Quiet a cool song. Good instruments.

You know they’re not really playing the guitar though!

20:19

Albania Performing. “Suus”. Sung by an experimental Jazz musium! A little bit too artists for my taste. I’m not sure I can call that singing. Too breathless…
