It's that time of year again, when us Europeans immerse ourselves in an orgy of camp and kitsch and have The World's Most Ridiculous Song Competition. Who will win this year? The odds-makers has Sweden as the favorite, but since they won two years ago and Denmark won last year, has Scandinavia fatigue set in? And what about majesty and pageantry of Conchita Wurst, Austria's "bearded lady"? Will eastern Europe's less than stellar record on LGBTQ issues sink this star in the making?
If you only watch one Eurovision video this year, make it this one.
If you don't live in a country with an official broadcast I believe you can watch the competition live from here (you Americans don't have to feel left out)! The competition starts at 9 PM Central European time, which I believe is 3 PM Eastern Standard Time, though I'm in general not sure how time works. It's roughly 6 hours and 30 minutes from the time of this post, anyway.
If there's any Giant Bomb cats watching the competition, I figure we could have this thread to chat about the Awesome Ridiculousness (tm) of the Eurovision Song Contest. What are your favorites? What do you hope to see tonight?
