Germany 2011

On Saturday night, European Televoters and Juries voted Germany the winner of the Eurovision Song Contest 2010. This is the second time in the History of Eurovision that German of won the contest, see a history on escireland.com.

It now falls to the German broadcaster ARD to host the contest next year.

Throughout the voting on Saturday night many comments were passed about the fact that Europe was rewarding Germany for bailing them out and to the fact that Germany was probably the only country able to afford the Eurovision Song Contest!

In my own view, I loved the German entry from the first time I heard it. Satellite is an amazing song and Lena is an excellent singer with raw talent! So we are off to Germany next year! Hopefully I will be there!

On the Irish entry, I agree with Diarmy.

  1. I only got the watch this years Eurovision last week, in HD though (glorious details!) The German win wasn’t as clean cut as I thought it would be, but by god was that song annoying! And the girl is a fruitcase! You probably saw some of my Eurovision posts on my blog already. By god, the Icelandic voting section was my favorite 30 seconds of the whole show. Love that woman! 🙂

    I wrote this on Diarmy’s post regarding Irish entries: “It’s very simple. Stop sending gimmicks to Eurovision. Send a pop song. A song you would hear on the radio, and say “you know what Mary, I think I’m going to go out and buy that single today.” We harp on about “oh it’s not a song contest anymore”. Well how the hell would would we know. All we ever sent in the last few years were two red headed warriors and singing sock puppet stuck in a jax bowel.”
