Saturday: Eurovision Song Contest

This Saturday will be the 51st Eurovision Song Contest, held in Athens, Greece.

It’s a unique event for so many reasons, but mainly, it’s the one time of the year where each country agrees to making a complete fool of itself for the sake of “music”.

While Terry Wogan’s classic commentary makes the event slightly less painful, I suggest a drinking game. Let me know if you choose to tune in to the embarrassment that is the Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday night!

Hosts

  • Sing
  • Speak in rhyme
  • Gaze into each others eyes — drain glass if they pash

Singers/Backup Singers

  • Wink at camera
  • Drop to their knees
  • Make a peace sign
  • Sing in language other than English or native tongue (ie. Ukrainian sings Hasta La Vista)
  • Wear a hat – drain glass if wearing horns
  • Flick their hair – drain glass if bald
  • Have a moustache – drain glass if female with moustache
  • Show décolletage – drain glass if wearing a codpiece
  • Rapping – drain glass!

Dancers/Musicians

  • Mime heavy guitar solo
  • Play an ‘ethnic’ instrument
  • Play piano while standing
  • ‘Ethnic’ dancing – drain glass if Hip Hop dancing
  • Pretend to fight – drain glass if martial arts
  • Contortionist – drain glass!

General

  • Helicopter shots
  • Sped up or slowed down film
  • Any costume change
  • Any key change
  • Use of props (i.e. candles, ribbons, dummies)
  • Use of fireworks – drain glass if singer catches fire
  • UK gets no points – drain glass if UK catches fire
  • Your country wins – drain glass!

All credit for this hilarious drinking game goes to Kim Beissel.

    Did anyone notice that Pentagrams were everwhere at the Eurovision song contest and crowd members were giving the two finger satanists salute ?
    Well you should have done. Greece used a pentagram to depict 5 different aspects of Greece at the beginning of the show. The Turkish entry finished by making a pentagram out of the dancers arms. A bunch of idiots dressed as Satanists, while denying they are Satanists, won. And so on. Get the feeling someone is trying to tell us something?
    I’m glad I know Jesus!

  2. Well… I’ve always said Eurovision was evil, but I didn’t really mean it in *that* sense!
