{UK,D,N, ES} NULL pointers and they are paying customers. Throw in the towel, esp UK.

To be fair, the UK song was the worst of the lot!

After recent events I do think that the BBC should be banned from anything to do with current affairs, except Crufts and Eurovision. And I'm not sure about Crufts.

It hurts my ears just thinking about that song.
BTW Super Mario was impressive on this one. Hardly few months in the office and Italy is already at the top of the game.

"In the blog post, it says the BBC paid the European Broadcasting Union, which hosts the competition, £310,000."

About the same amount that it costs for #10's wallpaper.

Countries east of latitude 52.520008 have boycotted UK and IRL for years.

Pyrrhic victory.
Sweden has a serious music export business, 4 times bigger than NL.

Focus was the last famous one in 1970s.

here's my favour Swedish metal group from Borlange
https://dodsrit.bandcamp.com/album/d-dsrit

From the shadowy desolated woods of Borlänge and the rusting urban lechery of Amsterdam comes Dödsrit, a maelstrom of soul tearing blackness and cacophony.
Dödsrit merges soaring blackened onslaught, treacherous unsetting calm drones and a blizzard of D-beat infused Black Metal into a violently crashing maelstrom of melancholic and soultearing cacophony. less
