It’s very sad news that Terry Wogan has announced he might stop presenting the Eurovision Song Contest for the BBC, as it just wouldn’t be the same without him. His sarcasm and pithy comments really make the show, and I don’t think anyone else could do it half as well.
But having said that, I quite understand his frustrations with the skewed block voting that goes on between certain participating countries.
In the past few years some of the UK entries, for example, have been quite rubbish. But this year’s song Even If sung by Andy Abraham is really good. And while I’m not saying it should have won the competition, it definitely should not have come last.
Perhaps, with falling viewing figures, the BBC should consider pulling out of Eurovision altogether.
