And so we say goodmorrow to Terry Wogan on Eurovision. And with him, to Eurovision itself. Can you think of a reason to watch now?

Noooooooooooooooooooo

After denying it (just yesterday!), Graham Norton has finally admitted he is going to take up Terry Wogan’s Eurovision duties now that Tez (say it isn’t true!) has called it a day.

Now that Eurovish has become a vile east vs west thing (with them winning every year because a. they’re desperate for it b. they all vote for each other where we would never be caught dead voting for say France and c. they’re cheats) with songs that aren’t even funny (except for Scooch – above with Tez *lets pristine tear run the full length of a fully made-up face*), we are officially over it.

It is still ridiculously one of the BBC’s biggest ratings smashes of the year, but also one of its pricier progs seeing as everyone else pleads poverty and we have to cough up the Queen’s ransom.

Anyways, the Beeb has done the only thing it could do on finding out that Terry Wogan will no longer be royally ripping the piss out of ‘Johnny Foreigner’ on an annual basis and recruited a gayer in the form of Graham Norton to oversee proceedings (honestly, what with a role in La Cage Aux Folles and this, Norton has become so gay he’s looped round and is probably straight again).

He released a statement saying he delighted, over the moon, blah blah blah and while we have a lot of time for Mr. N, lovely man, won’t hear a word against him andcetera but frankly *lip starts to quiver*… he ain’t no Terry.

    Dame Terry is the only thing that makes Eurovish watchable.

  2. Yeah. This is big news. Put’s the credit crunch into perspective as an issue facing our nation.

    I say let’s give Graham a chance. Revered as he is, Sir Tel had become a bit bitter in the last couple of years and some of the fun had gone out of his reportage. Not that his wrath was without provocation, mind, I mean the eastern Europeans are taking the piss somewhat.

    That said, perhaps Norton can inject a new joie de vivre into this ridiculous campfest. I think he should do a joint commentary with Alan Carr. That would be telly worth watching.

  3. I think we need to re-divide Europe, into East and West. And then have two different Eurovishes, and the winner of each then battles it out – but only non-European countries are allowed to vote in the latter. Is that doable?

  4. I can see Simon Amstell presenting Eurovish. He’s just sarky enough – plus I quite fancy him in a boarding school sort of way

  5. But Simon Amstell went to comprehensive, so who are you kidding? But getting back to the matter at hand, Graham Norton is the worst choice ever. There is such thing as TOO camp and it’s worse than paedophilia.
