That's good then. I never cared for Terry Wogan. I get that he was so cynical and a lot of viewers enjoyed the fact that he made fun of certain entries but IMO he also was partly responsible for the reputation ESC has in the U.K.
Terry Wogan sounded like a sad grandpa who had a little too much whisky and is commenting the ESC. Not very proffesional too
I watched some videos from the 2007 voting, he sais around 10000 times that there is not a single western country in the top 10. But of course he doesn`t say that almost all of the western countries sucked in that year and countries like Russia, Serbia, Greece etc. were the bomb.
I always wondered why does BBC have a translator for them. Isn`t the show in...uhm...english?
There was a lot of controversy after the 2009 show when the Albanians were complaining that Norton was making fun of their country. I remember one comment that still makes me laugh: "If she's dreaming about being carried away by those blue men, she should get herself checked out"
I never got Terry Wogan at the time, maybe it was because I was quite a bit younger, but now when I hear bits of what he said during Eurovision I must say it does make me laugh . Graham Norton I've found to be a but of a disappointment with Eurovision, it's a shame cuz he's hilarious on his show and that and always makes me laugh but on Eurovision he's not as good. Maybe it's cuz you cant see him but I think it's because he's told by the BBC to be less risque - also he could do with a partner, ALAN CARR!!!!!
