    Re: Eurovision Ironies

    The only irony I can think of right now is when there are 2 identical songs, but fans prefer the one sang by a hot guy

    Actually what he said is indeed a perfect example of irony. Irony refers to a reversal of expectations, and the expectations would be that a group with a heavy gay population would worship their divas. In the hypothetical scenario in which fans ever prefer an identical song sung by a hot guy, a situation which totally has ever happened even once, then it would be ironic

    Re: Eurovision Ironies

    For two years in a row, the last entry in Semi 2 is the first in the final.

    Re: Eurovision Ironies

    The greatest upset seems to be Australia getting too high points from the juries.

    In the same year Epic Sax Guy returns, we also see the first Epic Ass Guy.

    Re: Eurovision Ironies

    I find it ironic that if you're really good at dancing, figure skating or riding a treadmill you're allowed to show those skills on stage, but if you can play an instrument really well you're only allowed to pretend you're playing.

    Re: Eurovision Ironies

    Omar from Slovenia and Laura from Estonia:

    -represented their respective countries in Kiev both in 2005 and 2017.
    -performed in second-to-last position in their respective semis.
    -were ranked second-to-last by juries in their respective semis.

    The similaries end here as they obviously didn't get the same final placing overall, but I thought it was noteworthy.

    Also, the couple of non-English winning entries of the 21st century we've had so far have slayed the contest during years featuring the number 7 (2007, 2017)... Hopefully, this won't become a trend and we won't have to wait until 2027 for the next one

    Ukraine has their worst Results in their Homecountry.
    Moldowa has its 2 best results in Kiev.
    2005 Latvia qualified as 10th in the Semifinal, being nearly eliminated by Poland, but in the Final, Latvia was very long in Front.
    Romanias most succesful Entry (2005) got only 7 Points from Moldova.

    Re: Eurovision Ironies

    No real ironies but my country's
    televoting habit towards is remarkable:

    If I were sorry (2016) and When spirits are calling my name (2000) are the most successful entries with eight points each. On the other hand, the majority of their Top-5 efforts stayed ignored by our telephone-voting constituency: 2001, 2006, 2014, 2017 and possibly 2011 as well all ended up with no points. The 1999 winning song received merely two.

    It might be explained with our audience seeming to be less fond of traditional/Eurovision-y styled songs, which used to be a trademark for Sweden in those years.

    Also interesting how was the only nation to televote for in 2003 but awarded them nothing the year after next when they came second.
