Eurovision is back this weekend – if you’ve missed the heats and lowdown so far we’ve got it covered for you and it’s looking as delightfully strange and over the top as ever!
It’s the final this Saturday 23 May in Vienna. Nigella Lawson will be representing the UK by reading out the nation’s voting results live on the BBC. Apparently, after tweeting a picture during last year’s competition with a faux beard supporting Conchita Wurst, the BBC asked her if she’d be up for it and she has confirmed it this week via her twitter!
Strangely, lets be fair there is always a massive dose of weird and wonderful about this extravaganza and Australia is the latest country to be welcomed into the pot. We know our geography wasn’t the best at school but even we know this isn’t part of Europe – what’s the score? In celebration of the 60th anniversary and the apparent support Australia has given the competition they have been invited to participate.
It remains to be seen what happens if Australia wins, although highly unlikely given the territorial voting patterns that are re-known in the competition.
Graham Norton is back on the BBC with his wry sense of humour, blunt put downs and witty anecdotes and its bound to be a good way to while away a Saturday evening. Bring it on, Graham!
Our entry this year is rather good in our opinion and a dancey electric swing tune by duo Electro Velvet. The song is called Still in Love With You and it's surprisingly catchy. Have a listen below for yourself! We definitely think this will escape the dreaded ‘nil points’.
Radio 1’s BIG WEEKEND is also happening this weekend in Alan Partirdge’s home town of Norwich! With the likes of Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, Alt-J, Foo Fighters and Rita Ora…. Take a listen – we will be showing it in some of our bars if you missed out on tickets so you can enjoy the experience with one of our vodka cocktailin hand!
Most of all – enjoy the bank holiday and after all the boozing and late nights – come and indulge in our £10 Brunch deal – where you can choose any Brunch menu dish, a coffee and a bucks fizz!
