How to win the Eurovision Song Contest according to the BBC. A few key rules that you need to stick to according to the British Broadcaster. In this 2 hour look back at Eurovision over the decades, they pick out the “Do’s and Don’ts” that a country should remember if they want to win Eurovision.
Aired last year (before they selected Bonnie Tyler) this is a satirical look at the contest from the BBC. Some of their golden rules on how to win Eurovision include
- Steer clear of Rap, Reggae, and Yodeling music
- Make a good first impression and sing in tune!
- Pick the correct song theme – Usually Love and World Peace work well (so they say)
- Avoid Politics
- Dress for success – Avoid tank tops, no shoulder pads, bad hen nights costumes and tracksuits and if you are Javine avoid a wardrobe malfunction!
- Don’t pay attention to the betting odds – as they tend to give you a false sense of security
- Have a gimmick – Think Bucks Fizz ripping their skirts off and Sakis’ Giant Stapler
- Don’t forget the Dance Routine
- Pick the right song title – “That Sounds Good To Me”
- MAKE IT SEXY!
One word of wisdom came from the show – “UK pick someone who is cool. They don’t need to be hugely famous”. Will the BBC listen to their own advice as they prepare Geri Halliwell for her extra 3 minutes of fame – but that is a whole other article.
Sit down tonight as the storms hit Europe and have a laugh at this show. It is almost as good as Eurovision itself!
