Eurovision!

Postby JennyWren on Sat May 26, 2012 9:39 am

Eurovision tonight! I'm excited :)

Always good fun, but to make it even more fun, why not try the Eurovision Drinking Game (as promised for the folks on mumble):

Drink when:

Presenters:

The Host and Hostess sing

The Host and Hostess speak in rhyme

The Hostess changes her dress


Performances:

Use of props (e.g. candles, ribbons, dummies, mobile phones)

Use of pyrotechnics or lasers (if they go wrong: finish drink)

Any time the song goes up a key

Germany's song mentions peace, harmony or love (one sip each)

Anything really weird happens (think the Power Rangers from a couple of years ago or singing grannies?!)

The performers are identical twins (God I can’t wait for Ireland’s entry!)

Mid performance costume change

Singing in native language

Rapping

Performer drops to their knees

Facial hair

Unusual/ethnic instruments are used


Judging:

Drink when your country gets points (come on The Hump!)

Drink when winner cries


Extras:

Propose a toast to UKCS members: e.g. When the Netherlands entry comes on "To Cotillion, MrsSekhmet and Security!" and drink

Enjoy :)

Pretty certain the only reason any sane person watches Eurovision is for the drinking opportunity!

I see nothing wrong with this? I've heard a lot worse in the charts.

Yes it's camp and OTT, that's why I love it. Occasionally there are gems:




I was a fan of lordi before this </hipster>, but this just made them legends in my mind.
