It’s a European vision thing

The accepted wisdom is that Eurovision used to be about Euro cheese of the kind that Britain couldn’t produce and so we didn’t win nearly as often as we should have done (despite being obviously better obviously) but that recently it changed and that it is now a former Eastern Bloc show with Balkans and Baltics voting for each other with Russia pulling the strings (despite the UK still being obviously better obviously).

Which doesn’t really explain how Norway and Germany come to be the last two winners.

Perhaps they just actually have better songs. Here’s wotsherface, the German winner demonstrating how to sing kookily in a foreign language whilst wearing a short skirt.
