    Does anyone understand the seeding for the Eurovision?

    I thought only the top 10-15 countries were automatically in the final

    I am alomst sure the UK came last in last years competition but are in the final straight away

    (a bit sad of a question, but it kept me up for 3 mins last nite, well Estonia kept me up for a while at least)

    I think I remember reading that because BBC are such a huge financial contributor they will not exclude them.

    Re: Qualifying for EUROVISION

    Always getting picked on by the big boys in Europe

    That is only an indication of how the new europe will be

    We should adopt the Uk approach, we are an island too

    So what if europe has bankrolled us for 30 years

    We are doing well now, f@$" the lot of them

    or

    could they bring in seeding system like in football

    we would be the Brazil of eurovision (if Brazil played eurovision and were in europe)

    Who is missing ?

    These are the 36 countries. No doubt some time soon, some countries are going to question why they bother. Anyone know who refuses to participate ?

    Ukraine, I was thinking of investing in some property out there. Do you think it is still a good idea?

    Re: stats and Eurovision

    Am ... not too sure :) But, didn't property prices rise in Irland after our string of wins in the late 90s?

    Does anybody else think that only those countries who legitimately belong to the Eurozone should be part of the competition? It is the Euro vision after all!
