Funnily enough, I never used to watch the Eurovision Song Contest when I lived in the UK… It was always regarded as a bit rubbish and rather silly. However last year, after coming home from a nice dinner at a restaurant (which involved just a little bit of wine 😉 ) I was channel surfing and happened to stumble upon this:
