  1. Ah hmmm A little correction please.

    Firstly you mention that the Swedish song Popular was sung by Mika Newton, was`nt it sung by Erik Saade the boy who is part Lebanese and part Swedish.

    Secondly I would like to point out that the lead singer of Denmarks “A Friend in London” when they received their first 12 points from The Netherlands, his response on international TV was “Thank you, I want to F___k you”. Did anyone else pick this up or was i imaging this. And why were they not penalised for using foul language. Like immediately putting them last.

    And finally i would like to congratulate Azerbaijan for winning but why was the female singer Nigar holding and waving the Turkish flag the whole time? Did Turkey win or did Azerbaijan win?

    Oh and one more note, why did FYR(OM) have to repeat that they the votes from Macedonia, the Macedonian votes from Macedonia and stressing it so much. Why are they using every event to propagandise their goals. Why cant they just simply except what they really are, Bulgarian left overs or Albanian new comers. They just cant accept that they have no glorious history or famous ancient personalities.

    Just get a life FYR and stop your stealing ways. You will be better off with a name that defines your region like Vadarska or Alburia. Your free to make the choice and if you do not likes these suggestions make something else up that is entirely yours to be proud of. Why were you falsely guided to the name you so stuburnly pursue now by Tito and your later leaders it does not make sense.

  3. congratulate !!it is Turkish flag but Azerbaijan won ! may be for inspiration! becouse of they couldn’t go to the finals

  4. It may seem unusual to non-Turks but it is always possible to see Turkiye and Azerbaijan flags waved together in international sports game etc…Azerbaijan’s team were waving Turkish and Azerbaijani flags because they are of the same Turkish nation. Turks share their happiness and sadness with all Turks of the Turkic world in Azerbaijan, Turkiye, Cyprus, Western Thrace, Bulgaria, Kosova, Crymea, former USSR regions, Persia, Iraq…and in diaspora.
