On a crisp Sunday eve those of us with any class arrived at Kate and Chris's apartment for an evening with Eurovison. Glitter and tackiness ahoy!!
Kate fixed everyone a beer from around Europe and then we played the waiting game. You see Eurovision this year was a bore. Cheap ploys from Russia to use babushkas, not enough glitter and defiantly not enough obscure dance moves. Liam and I were waiting for the Irish glory of 2011, yes Jedward had returned in all their awesomness to amaze us again.
After over 1 hr of lameness country #23 was up and boy did they impress
With matching gold space outfits, kick flips, simultaneous dance moves and hair flicking in a milky type shower Jedward blew even the toughest critics away. They were sure to win.
Chris and Kate prepared victory cups of tea and lemon slice as we watched the points tallied. A long and painstaking process.
But it was not to be. Sweden won without any glitter or kick flips... lame. And Jedward... well they came 3rd last. Double lame. However we all got tasty lemon slice and tea so in a way we all won.
