    I am sure all the heterosexual men and feminist women among the judges enjoyed it……just as I am sure they would not have enjoyed it if it involved two men rather than two women.

    Hooray for the double standard! Every gay man should be thrilled by it!

    Actually it is not so much gay marriage anthem. Surely the end of the song is pro-lgbt marriage, and it is wonderful. I liked Krista saying: “It’s 2013 and I can kiss whoever I like to.”

    When have women ever not been able to kiss whoever they like to?

    Of course the England entry this year was Bonnie Tyler, she of Total Eclipse of the Heart fame.

    Did not work. Saw her on Graham Norton, the song was terrible and she has not progressed as an artist since the days of her hits. Or should I say hit.

    Whatev, it was sad.

    If I can’t kiss men then nobody else should be allowed to. Do you pathetic liberals realize how hard it is being a closeted adult like me with no testicles? It’s HARD. You effeminates are the reason I’m too scared to come out and actually enjoy life as a gay man.

  7. Agree with Rick says

    I rarely agree with Rick, but he’s right in this case. If two men were to do this, there would be an uproar. So sick of this double standard. Plus, those “singers” aren’t even gay. I’m so sick of straight women doing this crap for publicity.

    @Joe Bua – Yes the UK entry is crap, ours always is. We have only won twice. The only reason we get to the finals every year is because we, along with France, Germany, Spain (and recently Italy) pay for the bloody thing and so get an automatic place.

    Eurovision’s a bit of a joke here but lots of people stay in and have Eurovision parties (with lots of alcohol and drinking games). I’m having one tomorrow night in fact. Can’t wait!

    @AgreewithRick No-one would care if two men kissed on Eurovision (maybe some countries but tough). It’s the gayest thing on the planet. And in 1998, Dana International (an Israeli trans artist) won the bloody thing with “Viva la diva!”. I was at a Eurovision event at G.A.Y in London and it was spectacular. We didn’t mind coming second to her one bit.

    Hey, leave the Balkans out of this!

    Turkey, on the other hand, threatened to not broadcast the finale over the kiss.

    The woman-on-woman kiss happened in the semi-final:

    In the produced video she kisses a man (whom she has kidnapped) at the end.

    @Joe Bua: Why are you saying that Bonnie Tyler’s entry was the worst and sad, when she did not even compete yet? The actual show is tomorrow.

    Not that I am a fan of that particular song, but give Bonnie a break. She just wants to sell her back catalogue of hits from the 80s!

    Sorry to be such a buzz kill, but each and every one of these performers would be at best “headlining” in the most obscure streets off, way off of the Vegas Strip. Why are there still these phony shows that seem only to carry on the faux tradition of boardroom created pop stars dating way back to the Monkeys, when their TV profits were more important than their minuscule “signed” and patched together “talent,” especially back when true talent simultaneously abounded that included Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, the Allman Brothers, the Grateful Dead, Grace Slick and the Jefferson Airplane, the Who, Pink Floyd, none of whom would be caught dead near the slimy likes of those producers who bring these Ryan Seacrest monitored Mediocrity Fests to air over the way too dated broadcast airwaves! Where are the truly talented young folks who decry the “absorption” into the phony glitz and supposed glamour of these lowest denominator vehicles for TV advertisers?

    @Monrocsol @Tom Cardellino

    Eurovision has Always been a bubble gum pop cheesefest…and was isn’t carrying ona tradition of boardroom created popstars…it started the damn tradition!

    ABBA won with Waterloo in 1974, duh.

    Denmark just won, but what’s more interesting, despite the backlash, Finland went with the lesbian kiss in the finals AND we even got treated to a gay kiss between two guys during the host’s humorous tribute to Sweden!

    The two guys, grooms incidentally, were married by the host in the segment. Great statement! Hot close-up! :)
