I arrived from Dusseldorf last night after going to Germany to watch the Eurovision Song Contest. It was absolutely amazing- I don’t care who thinks it’s rubbish, when you’re in that arena surrounded by tens of thousands of screaming fans, all from different parts of the world, staring at a massive, mind blowingly huge and complex stage with a screen the size of an office block, you know you’re in the middle of a good thing.
Azerbaijan won the night, which was shocking and a bit sad as there’s no way they will outdo what the Germans did for this year’s show.
The UK were great, and even though the sound was a bit off, Sweden or Denmark should have won. More pics on my Flickr.
